Default Frikken Camel Spiders

I'm not a fan of spiders.

I did 6 months in Egypt. You got various briefings on the things that would kill you in the desert.

Landmines? Meh.

Heat stroke symptoms? Meh.

Local customs and offenses to avoid? I'm doing you a favor, so pi$$ off.

Then the wildlife portion. Yeah, snakes. Yeah, disease ridden flies.

Then out comes the jar. I do not exagerrate when I say they had a spider larger than my hand. The color of sand and nocturnal, so essentially invisible. Pods on it's legs that numb the skin, so you won't feel it walking on you. Attracted to CO2, so it's headed for where you exhale, your face. Huge black fangs, two sets, to eat efficiently. Eat what? Your face.

We would go out for patrol, take turns sleeping. I would stand guard all night, let the other two rest.

Any body got something worse to take my mind off these guys?

I saw something on them on "Monsterquest". If it helps, they are not technically spiders.

I agree, they are technically the spawn of Hell. EEEEWWWWW!

We met a local, had a half dollar size hole in his cheek. We had language barriers, but we pointed at the hole, he looked quizzical, then enlightened, and made a wiggly motion with his fingers. We all freaked.

You asked for something worse, I gave it to you.

Yeah, but now I'm creeped out and impotent.
