      Hi Members,

      I was in the kitchen yesterday and opened up my cabinet under the sink.......and saw a spider as big as Texas on the door!!!!! Omg........i flipped out as i braced myself and got a broom to knock it off and squashed it. For the next hour my skin crawled as i felt that spider on me!

      It prompted me to search out a fact i had once heard. The average person consumes ten spiders in their life as they sleep. In checking out that fact i learned its an Urban Legend!!! What a relief!!!!!!!! All this time i was flipping out a spider crawled in my mouth and i ate it.......lmao!!!

      Another one i believed for the longest time was the one about the guy in the back seat of girls car as she drove home from a club. She stops for gas...the attendant see's the guy hunched over in the back seat and desperately tries to lure her out of the car. She paid by credit card and the clever attendant tell's her to come inside to sign in it. Under protest she goes inside. He locks the door and tells her there is a man in her backseat with a knife and he calls 911.

      I thought that was true too...Urban Legend!!! It had purpose....it sure made alot of women look in the back seat before they got in!

      What Urban Legend have you believed in or wonder if it is......truth or myth?

      This is not quite an urban legend, more of a old Wives tale but how about the one where if you break a mirror you'll have seven years bad luck. :-\

      To be safe, you shoud bury the pieces of your mirror under the cover of moonlight.

            Turn around 3 times in a circle in a counter-clockwise direction as soon as you break the mirror. This will confuse the bad-luck spirits.Toss a pinch of salt over your left shoulder.
            If the mirror is a small one, you should hold it under running water in your sink or shower. You may also toss it into a stream or river, as any type of running water is said to wash away all kinds of bad luck.
              Last but not least: Take one shard of the broken mirror to a cemetery. Hold the shard against a gravestone so the bad luck will pass on to someone who is already dead and therefore won't be bothered by it.

              I have broken mirrors on my time, and I never buried my pieces under the cover of moonlight,or any other of these steps,  Perhaps that explains my lack of luck at Slots.

      OMG...NOTHING freaks me more than a spider...I was watching a movie the other day with my brother, and the wind blew something on me and tickled me..I thought it was a bug...I jumped 50 feet off my chair, and ran across the room.  My brother was like what the hell is your problem??  I felt silly telling him I thought it was a spider, but I was soooooooooo freaked, it wasn't even funny...he made so much fun of me..damn bugs...well, I am getting even with you Lips...here's one for you..

      This is a pic of a Large Camel Spider  and pics of the huge bites!!

      Don't look if you are a chicken like me...don't say I didn't warn you!!!!

      These pics were taken from the Gulf War in the Desert in Kuwait..

      According to the soldiers relatives; the bite must have happened while he was sleeping. He wasn't even aware that he had been bitten. He woke up to a large lump on his arm. Then while out on maneuvers, the cyst-like area ruptured open. He was then sent on to the MASH Unit in Kuwait. They dug everything out (puss & ??) then packed it with gauze, put him on a strong round of antibiotics with instructions to re-pack the site several times a day. The area was too large for them to stitch shut. They claimed that it would cause an air pocket under the skin. So it had to be allowed to heal from the inside - out! It seems to have healed pretty well, leaving a small scar about the size of a penny.

      Most people don't know that the camel spider can also be found in the southwest U.S. and Mexico. While the recent buzz is all about the Middle Eastern camel spider, its North American cousin has no shortage of tall tales. In Mexico, they're known as matevenados, which means "deer killers."

      Heh! I'm tough, had eaten some doughnuts before viewing that.

      Nasty looking bugger..Looks like the monster has what? 10 legs?? 12?!?!?!

      Yeah, now I'm not a fan of Tarantulas, but the tiny black and white hopper spiders are ok with me They run away instead of me

      No urban legends I'm aware of for me...

      Nal,

      I can't get that spider out of my mind. I keep telling myself there is NO way that is a spider! It looks like an animal.

      What determines a spider.....the number of legs right? Does anyone know how many legs are needed for it to be officially a spider?

      Does anyone know?

      I should change this topic to Spiders.........we are all off topic!!!!
