    Massive Spider.

    It's been in my room for over 24 hours now. Shall I let it live and terrorize me or step on it?

    Bear in mind it's huge (leg span little bit bigger than an Apple pie) and I preferably don't want to go near it. It's fast and so big you can hear it crawling.

    KILL IT. Now.

    It will crawl in your mouth when you sleep. And it will have babies if you leave it so that you're more likely to get another one in your room.

    Yeah I hate spiders.

    I probably need to grow some balls, but I'm terrified of them ever since one landed on me and crawled down my body. It was the size of my hand.

    The one I'm looking at now is this big.

    Throw a flip-flop at it or poke it hard with a mop handle.

    p.s. In Cyprus there is this spider that jumps, it's black and white and so scary and the worst thing is you can't kill it because it will jump on you or whatever your using to poke it.. haha, just thought i'd throw that in somewhere.

    Get a jar or a bowl, and cover it, then slide a piece of paper underneath the jar/bowl. Empty contents out window.

    I'm pretty sure it's a male as they mate around this time of year. I will let him win this round and live another day as he has managed to hide away under a table. If I see him again and he isn't fast enough, the last thing he will see is my foot.

    I tried that once.
    It crawled on the other side of the paper and onto my hand.
