qux: I'm curious, do you guys still have a human-run issues desk? because we sure as hell don't. If you want a book out, you've got to use one of the self-issue machines. This is fine for some, not so great for others.
We have a "help" desk for the "non-compliant users" who want to interact with a human being, but for the most part, self-issue.
Which would be wonderful, if they worked as advertised...

Soccorro: As soon as i see a spider i'm paralyzed for a couple of seconds and run away as soon as i can move again.
If I have something handy, I'll try and trap it and throw/ fling it with great enthusiasm out the window, but it also depends on how large they are and how long their legs...

Recently we've had some "whip the public into fear mode" articles about these new spider invaders that arrived on a boat in some banana boxes.
200 years ago.
They've been steadily working their work through the country, and they've arrived in our area.
The false black widow is now officially the most venomous spider in the country, which isn't saying a lot given that I believe none of the native spiders are venomous to us. If you get bitten, you feel ill for a couple of days, but that's it.
Anyway, I found a whole load of egg sacs on our windows, and given there are more than a few spiders per sac, I destroyed with prejudice the sacs. It was a bit scary the way so many spiders dropped out of the woodwork literally, when I was spraying.
I may have eeked a few times, but at no time did a girlish scream pass my lips!

We have both the real black widow spider and brown recluses in the area that are venomous. To me all spiders are venomous even that tarantula sized garden spider that was hanging from my fence that I almost walked into while mowing the lawn.
I'm afraid to have a girlfriend over the house, because I just know that will be the time a spider walks by and my shameful girlish screams will have her running for the door. I'm all man for all the other pests: mice, roaches, other insects, but spiders just give me the heebie jeebies. At the 2 minute mark is me if I walk into a spiderweb.

I miss the old GOG :

- when we received classic release(es) on every week with lots of extras
- there were no indie puzzle platformers
- there were no $5.99 documentaries crap

Every time i see the new design of the website i feel i'm watching the ashes of a dead man . Meh . It's just so depressing .
