ok so i am laying in bed and watching the discovery channel...(that was my first mistake) i am watching this thing on ants in africa. they live by the thousands!! (its crazy) :screwy:

so anyway, when the ants get hungry they all (101641619841 of them) gang up on animals AND PEOPLE!! seriously. :confused:

they showed this one lady in bed sleeping while the ants came into her hut and crawed all over the ground and then went into her bed and started biting her!! (why didnt the camera people do anyting??)

then finally the lady woke up and set all the ants on fire and she lived but they said that there have been cases where the ants DID KILL PEOPLE. they say the people die of suffication!

now it's around midnight and i am terrifed to sleep cause killer ants from africa will come eat me! :feelbette

just thought i'd share so when yall go to africa to watch out! :somedevil

I haven't had any scary experiences with ants, but Daddy Long Legs keep on showing up in my apartment. It's winter here, they should all be dead, frozen even, and yet about once a week, there's a new one. It's not scary or creepy so much as annoying...of course, if I were to actually kill them instead of kind-heartidly releasing them into the great outdoors, my problem might be solved:)

Discovery Channel is cool and all, but not when they're talking about bugs.

Christian you little shit!

I'm sorry to hear about your ant phobia...I can sympathize with you on fear of bugs. I once had a cave cricket (those big ass nasty thingies) jump on me while I was asleep, I swear I had nightmares about that for a month! Good news is that the ants live in Africa though, right? Unless you really piss them off and they come looking for you. Bugs are mean when they gang up on stuff.

I am not a big fan of bugs. One time I chased a dragonfly or something like that around my house for about 20 minutes, just because I could not stand it flying around my house. I was determined to catch that damn thing. Anyway if I had a million ants crawling on me I would freak out.

I HATE camel crickets!!! We used to get tons of them in TN and you had to be careful going to the garage when it was dark. I would flip the switch and the wall would be covered in them and they'd start hopping around! EEEEWWWWW HATE them I tell you!!!

wow, i missed this thread. we had a run on wolf spiders in my studio that were (and i'm not kidding) as big as the palm of my hand (and my hands are not small). i'm not afraid of spiders, but the first time i saw one, i was sitting at my computer late at night and something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye on the wall. when i looked i thought it was a tarantula - it was crawling super slow up the wall. i was actually shaking when i put the container over the top of it (those things jump a mile when they are small - i can only imagine how the big ones jump... and man, do they bite) to take it outside. then my little guy (3 years old) popped one of his rubber boots on his foot one morning and immediately took it off and threw it, screaming. when i dumped it upside down to get the offending twig or leaf out, out plopped one of those suckers. poor little guy wouldn't put a boot on after that without shaking it thoroughly.

buuuuuut...... what really gets me are cockroaches. and i'm not talking the little nasty critters we have here in the states, either. when i lived in venezuela, we had these horrible flying cockroaches that were about 4 inches long and an inch wide. and they STALKED me. i woke up one night to feel something tickling my chest under my shirt. it was the quickest strip-tease you ever saw when i realized it wasn't just a nice dream... and the thing that ran under the bed looked like a large stone on legs. <shudder> i had horrible nightmares about 6 foot long ones attacking me and i'm not kidding you - they only showed themselves to me. wherever i happened to be, one showed up even when people swore they had NEVER seen one in their house, etc. they would trap me in the shower stall, standing between me and the stall door (and remember, they fly - no jumping over those babies). it has taken me over 15 years to get rid of my phobia of them. though, i have to admit - while i capture and release every other bug or critter that takes up residency in my house, i have no mercy on roaches and will kill them indiscriminately. (and i take a disturbing sort of pleasure from it, too.) probably waaaaay more than you wanted to know, lol!

Yea, I had 3 of them on my arm (I guess I'll tell my story now!) when I woke up one night....they were everywhere in my old house when I was in HS...and my room was downstairs so that didn't help any. To this day (and this happened, lets see, 8 years ago!) I get the chills when I just think about one! I've wiped my arm off 4 times already while writing this! When I see one, I can't even run from it...I freeze and can't speak; can't yell or anything, I just stand there staring at it until someone realizes what is going on....I had a 3 hour college course 2 summers ago and about an hour through it I saw one crawling on the floor....I held my feet 6 inches from the floor for the remaining 2 hours and watched this thing crawl around the room....I had no idea what was being talked about...I must have looked like I had some kind of disability the way my eyes were just wandering everywhere:screwy:
