    Thank you, India. I almost posted about these a tiny while back. My friend who has a pet spider living behind his toilet sent me a link, and I was enchanted.

    It seemed like the sort of thing I’d find here, but I didn’t find it in the archives, so I posted it.

    It was in my mental archive. I’m glad you noticed.

    You know, there are things on this planet that I’m ok with not knowing exist.

    Okay, so you’re not an arachnophile, right, Joel?

    I don’t usually have a problem with spiders.

    I make an exception for spiders that can wrap a goddamn tree.

    That’s where I draw the line.

    So I guess you weren’t into these guys, either.

    Joel, are you cool with enormous fossilized spiders?

    Dammit, I was going to ask him that.
