It is no secret that I hate/fear spiders! It is nice to know that I am not alone in my fear of the eight legged spawn of Satan. But is your fear of spiders at this level - have you ever lit a spider on fire to kill it?

This guy has. He lives in Seattle and saw a spider on the wall and apparently a shoe death was not enough for the spider so he got a flame and spray paint - and burned half his house down! The good news is that the fire department says they are pretty sure he killed the spider. Unless spiders are now fire proof - then we are all in trouble!

I understand this guy though. I remember finding a spider in the bathtub when I was a kid so I got some hair spray and a match and lit the bugger on fire...then I squished it.
