I thought this was hilarious.

As the wife of an entomologist, I am not, THANK GOD, afraid of six or eight legged critters. This is so funny. Hope nobody go hurt! And that was a COOL spider. AnneG

I am not sure of my response to a spider like that, but I am pretty sure it would involve a shotgun.

"I am not sure of my response to a spider like that, but I am pretty sure it would involve a shotgun."
LOL! Perfect. Ditto.

I knew the spider was going to jump, and I still let our a scream.

Good Lord, that thing was huge! Well, I'd have moved out entirely. Let the thing have the house!

"I told you not to play with spiders!"
"Out of the mouths of babes," indeed! 🙂

Oh, I HATE spiders. I'd lose my mind if one like that was in the house. I covered my eyes – what made this guy think that was a good idea?!
I'm with Criffton: shotgun all the way.

I'd have been so out of there and all my kids with me. Honey, you can film if you want but call me at the hotel when you've caught it.
Then the little bit about mating season…ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'd be moving.

Ohhhh, boy! I'm with those who'd move out. I might actually have to blow up the house, too–especially if there's any possibility that it might have left an egg sac anywhere on the premises.
And somebody has to find the elephant that mated with that spider's mommy and kill it before it does it again.

This looks like a job for any kind of spray; bug spray, hairspray, Pam, whatever.

What a great chance to educate the kids about spiders! A neighbor boy once came to my door to show me the big snake he had found (anticipating a lot of screaming – he was that kind of kid.) I called all our children to the door to see. In Texas, we all need to know venomous from nonvenomous snakes. Same for spiders. The snake he brought was harmless, we all got to handle it, and it sparked days of discussions about snakes. We later bought a book about them.

This was the best! Very funny!

Reminds me of this soccer field where we used to play (emphasis on "used to"). There was a perimeter of brush land around the fields and every once in a while a soccer ball would go astray. I once went to retrieve a ball – just once. There were webs about 7-8' (that's feet) in diameter with spiders that looked like black and orange baseballs with eight legs.
You can have the ball.

I think the biggest spider I've seen around the home was about the size of a half-dollar, and he was a jumper, too. I'm sorry to all the bug-lovers who might read this, but it had to die. I don't usually mind most bugs. I draw the line at huge, jumping spiders.
And, Anon @ 5:43 pm, I would definitely let the spiders keep the ball–and the brush land, and probably the soccer field, too.

Jumping spiders are just WRONG.

I am NOT a stalker. I am happily married with 8 kids, but I do check out various profiles out of curiosity. I noticed that you like 2 different versions of "A Christmas Carol". I just HAVE to suggest the 1970 verson with Albert Finney. It's my FAVORITE movie. God bless.
