The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Why do people have such a big hang up about spiders? Most of those I know who do suffer from arachnophobia have never even been bit by a spider. While I have been bit by a very poisonous spider and still have no fear about them. In fact I didn't go to the hospital for two days, until I got screamed at for been stupid and not going. Sure my stomach had become rock hard (well stiff) and I was feeling sick. But from what I know of Peter Parker, he experienced similar things before he became spiderman. Anyway it all ended up with me passing out in a hospital. But that is that. Now tell me why are you all so dam scared of spiders.

Real men put spiders in their cars. This way they look like a hero when I ....errr...they save you from them.

Guaranteed panty dropper.

Is it because in your lifetime while sleeping on average you will swallow seven of them? Because when I found that out, they became so much more frightening than they were before.

So, you're saying I should find out what girl-at-work is terrified of... somehow get her in a position where she has to deal with it... then step in and save her...

Let's make it happen, people!

Oddly enough, depending on what she is afraid of that might work

Me? scared of spiders? hahaha. I love spiders, even used to have a tarantula for a pet.



Furry, intelligent and naturally gifted with brilliant senses, how can you not like them?

I'm quite a fan of the trapdoor spider, the goliath birdeater and the mexican redknee.
Sadly the UK doesn't have any of those majestic creatures wandering in the wild.
Instead I have the occasional wolf spider coming up my sink, who I'll drop into my moth filled loft.

But anyway, the human subconcious mind learns to avoid specific creatures.
I suspect this is varied though, some have a natural fear of spiders and others do not.

I don't know. I'm not afraid in general. But if I see a giant ass spider, I'd expect anyone to be afraid of it. But I must admire their instincts and natural abilities.

Fears are usually unexplained. It has to do with the look of a spider (they ain't exactly cute as puppies...). It's not about being bit... I'll go into more detail later, I need to finish my bowl of cereal now... Arachnophobia is a rather fascinating occurrence...
