Think Nemo’s Bad? In Brazil It’s Raining SPIDERS!!!

http://gawker.com/5982891/meanwhile-in-brazil-its-raining-spiders




What's that? You're worried about a little snow falling on your head? How adorable.

Meanwhile, in Brazil, it's raining spiders.

Footage posted online yesterday shows thousands of spiders "falling from the sky" in the southern Brazilian town of Santo Antônio da Platina.

"Still do not know what causes such behavior," writes the video's uploader. "We are researching and will post the answer to the question here."

I know exactly what causes such behavior. A little something called the end of the world.

3. Ok, that goes BEYOND my worst nightmare

To say I have arachnophobia is an understatement. When I was young, and we were under a tornado warning, my parents used to put us in the basement, beneath the wash tub. Where there were SPIDERS. I would have prefered a quick death by tornado rather than to be disolved and devoured by spiders. Admittedly, my entire knowledge base of spiders came from waking up at a drive in, during the 2nd feature of 'Tarantula'. Scarred me for life.

13. So in Brazil, the colloquialism must be, "It's raining tarantulas and brazilian wanderings."

17. Those spiders are all on webs, crawling up and down.

It's still horrifying to have them 50 feet in the air, but it least it's not raining spiders.

24. Well that is an advantage of spiders.

They do eat other undesirable insects. But still, ugh!

22. The SHRIEK heard 'round the world

That's what you'd hear if my older daughter was there.

To say she is not fond of spiders is an understatement.
She (age 29) flips at the site of tiny ones.

28. I don't have a problema with them.

 

I hate cockroaches and rats, but spiders don't bother me. Wouldn't like to be near that giant web, though.
