    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?:eek:

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

    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.:eek:

    A friend of mine was deployed to a small FOB that got attacked somewhat often (once or twice a week). One day he heard a gun shot, and they all ran over in their battle rattle ready to kill the terrorists or what not, they found one of the new guys there with his M-9 drawn and shaking.

    Apparently he was screwing around with a camel spider and it started to attack him, so he shot it with his handgun.

    He didn't get the Article 15 for a ND, he did however earn the nick name camel for the rest of the deployment.

    See, that's what I'm talking about. I'd have dumped a SAW on that thing.

    We caught several, one was so big you could see it breathing.

    Screw the SAW, 202Flash.

    keep dead rats around your bed so they wont be tempted to crawl on you. Hell Spawn spiders are creepy, I'm surprised no one has played any pranks on you.

    Holy Hell!!

    I may have to close this thread for the sake of everyone's abilty to sleep.

    If I saw one of those damn things I would lase it and call in a high speed bombing run! :eek:

    That is one gnarly looking "spider"

    And whoever came up with naked Nancy Pelosi - go slam your nuts in the car door, you obviously don't need them and since mine will never work right again, neither should yours.....
