Seen it and screw that. In Australia they have the Huntsman spider that grows large enough to straddle a dinner plate. I knew someone who lived there. He said to kill them they would spray them with lighter fluid and throw a match on them and burn them alive, he said they are large enough that you can actually hear them making a screaming-like screech as they are burning. here's a pic:

The goliath birdeater spider is considered the largest in the world:

I have to say that the "Spiders!" subject line should come with a disclaimer that there are disturbing photos inside. And I agree. Ditch the house. (((((shivers))))) :shock: :shock: :shock:

I sat through about 5 minutes of "Arachnophobia" and left the theater completely freaked out. For someone with a fear of spiders, the absolute worse for me was when I popped out to the garage and had a tarantula crawl across my bare foot. ANYTHING larger than a dime needs to die!!!!! ((shudder))

I have a fear of spiders to, but they are intriguing to look at through a computer screen where there's no chance of them jumping at me.
