Ever call someone OCD because they like to have a clean apartment? Ever tell someone you have a phobia of spiders when, in fact, they just creep you out a little? In this episode of Crash Course psychology, Hank talks about OCD and Anxiety Disorders in the hope we’ll understand what people with actual OCD have to deal with as well as how torturous Anxiety Disorders and Panic Attacks can actually be.
they’re like tiny 8-legged cats
how can anyone hate them
Spiders are huge derps, pass it on.
My dad used to work as a mechanic in Arizona and he said that wild tarantulas would just wander into the shop and try and cuddle with the mechanics under the trucks. Spiders really dig car exhaust smell for some reason and they would be like “ah yes this human smells nice let me sit on your face while you’re working or perhaps climb into your pocket and see what you have” and the mechanics would keep shooing the spiders out but the spiders would follow them back like “No why would you leave me human friend??”
THAT IS SO CUTE
reblogging for the story, eeee
spiders are the derpiest things though like have you ever played with a spider and a laser pointer, because I thought my lizards chasing the laser was adorable but leT ME TELL U, BLACK WIDOWS CHASING LASERS IS FRICKEN ADORABLE
This striking purple tarantula belongs to the genus Pamphobeteus (Theraphosidae), which comprises some of the largest spiders in the world.
Currently, there are ten species in the genus. They have neotropical distribution and most are voracious feeders and grow relatively fast, their appearance changing quite a lot as they grow.
