If there's one thing this video should teach you, it's to be careful what you touch.

The footage shows the creepy moment dozens of spider-like creatures come scurrying out of their nest after being disturbed by the cameraman who mistakes it for what appears to be a clump of hair.

Excuse me.. but why would a person touch (or want to touch) a stray wad of hair? Seriously? I find that more horrifying than a spiders nest.

The proper ways to respond to finding a stay wad of hair is to A. poke it with a stick or B. hit it with a rock.

I like to imagine this is what happens every time you touch a mustache.

No, I'm not gonna watch that.  After my incident with a Huntsman a few weeks ago, I'll end up dreaming of a thousand Huntsman coming out of tuft of hair, probably mine.  Dammit it will probably happen anyway cos I thought about it.  Not happy. :no:

It's just a Daddy Long Leg's nest. I remember see these nests when I was a kid. They're completely harmless people!

Ditto. :tsu:

I've seen Daddy Long Leg nest's too. Honestly, I've been way more freaked out cracking open other insect nests on accident. And really, the video is pretty funny rather than creepy.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

Believe it or not I don't care for spiders either but didn't find that video too bad to watch. I think mainly because the spider's legs are too spindly and I have no fear of Daddy Long Legs and never have. Now if the spiders had been more black and hairy - well that's another matter.

Sorry folks! :D  Perhaps I'll make it a new years resolution? "I must not post spider threads".... :innocent:

I find all spiders fascinating.  If they are hanging outside on the house, I will feed them bugs to see how big they will grow over the summer. Fascinating!
