Cities Are Making Spiders Grow Bigger

20 posts in this topic

Something about city life appears to be causing spiders to grow larger than their rural counterparts. And if that's not enough to give you nightmares, these bigger urban spiders are also multiplying faster.

So, the Murkwood Spiders were originally urban spiders that moved back to the countryside to raise their families?

I always thought that the MW Spiders were due to some hilly billy, back woods, illegal activity. Guess I was wrong to prejudge them.

I hear there are breeding colonies of these things across the Tasman. Does Australia want them back?

Ok guys, time to implement plan 'Eradicate spiders at all costs', we shall nuke every major city from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Be careful, remember what happened to the last guy who tried something similar:

A man who almost burned his house to the ground had been trying to kill a SPIDER using spray paint and a lighter.

Lemme get right on that after I spend the next 32 hours scrubbing invisible spiders off of the inside of my skin.
