I have some matadors being gored. That's pretty funny to me.
I'm not familiar with that type of dog, what's with the extreme difference in the girth of their chest and waist?
They're greyhounds, or possibly whippets (I have a hard time telling the difference without a direct size reference). They just have deep, long rib cages and pretty much nothing but lean muscle along the lower abdomen. Most sighthouds are built long and tall like that.
On the topic of the thread; my favourite of all time.
>being afraid of harvestmen
This is taking stupid phobias to a whole new level. At least arachnophobia can be justified on the grounds that some spider bites actually hurt(although the whole "deadly spider" meme is a myth), but being afraid of harvestmen? Seriously?
>implying the human brain takes the better part of a second to identify a genus and species before secreting adrenaline
It looks like a spider
It moves like a spider
Your fight or flight will think its a spider
Harvestmen are the fucking best, especially when they swarm like that. They view is glorious.
My lab has is normally very good at catching food in the air, but if you throw 2 items at once she just freaks out and freezes until they hit the floor and stop. she then sniff each of them before deciding they're safe to eat.
funnny as fuck.
No. Even as sit gathered up, it's obvious to everyone with decent eyesight that it is a gathering of harvestmen. They are just that fucking different from spiders.
They are to spiders what cats are to otters. Just like cats and otters are both mammals, spiders and harvestmen are both arachnids, but there's where the similarities stop.
>inb4 it has 8 legs, thus spider
Mites, ticks, amplypygi, scorpions and pseudoscorpions are all spiders then.
not surprising this cat responded like this - cats are capable of all kinds of weird behaviors due to overstimulation. Also - still goin stronk
>typical ylyl thread, mild amusement

What the hell man
did it die?

>although the whole "deadly spider" meme is a myth
So the spiders that can send you to the hospital or even kill you aren't real? Or are you referring to the myth people believe about harvestmen being deadly spiders?
I was chased off a swing and out of a park by a goose. Not one of these little Canada geese, either, one of the big, big, fluffy ones with a knobbly head and a mean eye. He came straight at me with his head up and I jumped off the swing and hightailed it back to my car while he followed.
I also went to a comic convention once where there were four giant geese hanging around outside one of the doors waiting for people to come out.
I could take being attacked by a Canada goose, but one of those giant geese? Hell no.
Not mine, but I'm not afraid of spiders. Of course, I live in a place where there are no dangerous spiders. I guess if you lived in Australia or something it would make sense.
Not to say some people don't have pathological fears of them despite never encountering a dangerous one or, as in my case, no possibility of encountering one.
No it's not that there aren't dangerous spiders but their deadliness is way over rated and pussy parents have been promulgating this idiocy for years. There are a very few spiders that are dangerous to people but none of them target people regardless. They bite when feeling threatened. They're very tiny compared to humans and fear for their safety when you put your hand or face near or on them. Even if you don't like or want spiders around they're everywhere and thank goodness. They are predators of all the other tiny animals in your house.
Think of your place as the Serengeti with all the roaches, mosquitoes, pill bugs, silverfish etc as the wildebeest, gazelles etc and spiders are the cheetahs and lions if it helps you deal with it.
You can't get rid of them, they're there even if you don't notice or see them.
So you prefer slugs eating all your plants? You're like my co-workers that freaked out when a falcon killed a pigeon and was eating it. They wanted me to go out and scare the falcon away. If you don't like nature then kill yourself and be done.
Yes but aside from the brown recluse they're not very dangerous. People don't die or suffer much accept for the excessive whining after a bite from those. It may come as a surprise but people don't die from bees or wasps which cause similar "damage" as black widows or tarantulas. If you've got a particular allergy that's a different thing but most people swell up a bit and then it goes away with no treatment.
What are you referring to? Canada geese are the largest geese in North America as far as I'm aware (at least of any that would be in urban environments). I submit that you don't know what a goose is.
Your submission is rejected. I took a picture!
Though I acknowledge that the one way in the back is a Canada goose.
>the yard is littered with dead stray cats and dogs
>two tiger-sized house cats are battling amongst a series of fissures in the ground
>police are trying to contain the situation, but bullets just bounce right off of the behemoth felines
>an earthquake strikes and my fucking house crumbles apart behind me
>the cats become a giant, viscious, snarling ball of fur and roll into the next city to wreak havoc there
>my fucking house is destroyed and i have to post this from my phone
i hope these owners are happy with themselves
I was mildy giggling and smiling until:
>OP here, they weren't dead and they started to move. I ran out of my house and called the exterminator. I'm posting from my cell phone.
I lost my breath and my sides hurt now.
I knew a couple who lived on a farm that had a massive cockatoo and a couple of dogs. The cockatoo was insane, it made a habit of screaming as loudly as it could which would make the dogs completely frantic. They'd run up to its cage and start barking at it, and the cockatoo would fucking bark back at them. Cheeky little shit.
I hope it really is washing that he uses it for...
