    This thing is creeping me out. If y'all don't intercede on it's behalf, it's a goner.

    That would make ME nervous being around. Give it a swift and respectful death.

    Release it oustside. Spiders kill insects and thus are okay with me. Just as long as they are not in my house.
  7. while i am all for "live and let live" generally...that thing looks suspiciously like some sub species of black widow and i would feel very nervous with it in my house.

    use the universal insect disposal...quickly and cleanly smash it with a book (ala BORIS THE SPIDER) and then flush it.

    It's gotta stay. I'm no arachnologist, but I think it is beautiful. Think of all of the other bugs you don't have because it is around.

    Let it live. Just capture it with a paper towel or something and toss it outside. It's just doing what it does..
    and TRUST ME it's hard for me to advocate sparing the thing because I FREAKING HATE SPIDERS but killing it would be wrong..:bawl:

    I scoop spiders up in a glass and toss them outside. Spiders are a net good for the world.

    Some bugs I smash. When it rains hard around here, we get the occasional big roach-like bug in the house. Those I smash.
  11. Kill it. With fire.

    It is outside.

    My wife walked by on her way to get the grandchild, called me a dumbazz for being a dumbazz with a potentially harmful insect and ordered it terminated with extreme predjudice forthwith.

    She mentioned something about if the grandchild walked into that web while he was outside playing, she would do to me what she wanted done to the spider so..

    The issue resolved itself when the two used phone books came together at a high rate of speed with nothing in between but a spider.

    I was going for the hairspray flame thrower but somebody wanted a confirmed kill like it was bin laden.

    Kill it. But be quick and precise about it and make sure you don't miss. If they get away, they wait until you're sleeping and then stalk you in your bed.

    Edit: Nevermind, I see you've accomplished your mission. Well done sir.

    Then you should have shot it in all 100 eyes.

    An aerosol can, and a cigarette lighter. Roast it!

    You're probably better off that way. If something went wrong halfway through the job, the assailant could have escaped having only suffered surface burns, and deadening of the nerves. The last thing you want running around is a pissed off spider who feels no pain.

    That issue is resolved but, if my wife's cat dooks on the floor right next to a litter box I just cleaned one more time....

    Don't kill it, ya bunch o' big girls blouses!

    If you must, put it outside but don't hurt it :(

    EDIT - I've just seen that you killed it. Disappointing.
