My neighobor as a child had this plum tree infested with furry orange and black caterpillars. It used to give me nightmares.

Caterpillars grow up to eat sweaters.

Caterpillars are the mascot for Money Tree, where all the poh people go for payday loans.


Therefore, caterpillars are not first class.

I hate caterpillars too. However, I must say that I hate centipedes and millipedes even worse. They are not even an appropriate animal life form. I have millipedes in my house, and one night I was reading in bed and one crawled up onto my pillow from under my sheets. :scared:

I hate caterpillars. You know. You'll just be sitting there, minding your own business, and they'll come marching in, and crawl up your leg, and start biting the inside of your ass, and you'll be all like, "Hey. Get out of my ass you stupid caterpillars!"

I used to find really cute fuzzy black caterpillars when I was a kiddo in Cali. You really can't throw all caterpillars into the same category. ;)

Ew! Aren't millipedes are poisionous?
So I read about them on the internet when I was seeing them a lot. Apparently millipedes do bite, but it is just a local thing and don't cause a systemic-type illness. Also, supposedly they are "shy" (the one in bed with me wasn't too shy!!)

I was all stressed about them and hated even being in my house because I thought I had an "infestation." But true infestations of these things completely take over your house - they had pictures of people taking them our of their house with SHOVELS. Filling up GARBAGE BAGS with these things. :scared: This made my little problem seem not so bad. Now perhaps you see why I have insomnia. :) On a happy note, I have not seen one in my house for quite some time and will now walk around my house barefoot after dark.

Why do people say EM is so entertaining? Someone, please PM me links to funny EM stuff. I went there and it was so dry that I had to give myself a swirlie!

They are very good natured though.

A long time ago there was a news story on tv about a snake that escaped from a zoo and was found in someone's toilet. Now, I always look at the inside of the toilet before I sit on it, or else I worry that that one time there will be a rat or a snake there. I know it's completely irrational, but I do it anyway. The good news is that this obsession significantly lowers my risk of falling into the toilet after some inconsiderate male has left the seat up.

You like this whole swirlie thing, don't you? I rather like the "gas pedal" punishment. Throw someone onto the ground and step on their crotch. And when you do it you have to say "GAS PEDAL" really loudly. I dreaded that one in grammar school.

When I was younger at home I opened up a kitchen cabinet (at eye level) and there was a snake behind the mug I pulled out. That was freaky.

My grandmother found a rattlesnake in her laundry room. She killed it with a broom and her foot. I think I would almost rather get bit! :scared:

I like the turn this thread has taken. May I not dream of snakes or caterpillars or creepy-crawlies tonight.

Another reason I like being up north. Cold kills. Nothing survives.

What's a swirlie?

Oh. We simply called those Flushes. I narrowly escaped one on my 21st birthday.

A Royal Flush is when they pee on your head.

Don't blame Canada. I wasn't in Canada then!

Like I said two posts ago, I narrowly escaped one. I got tossed in a pool instead.

No. There was a lot of them. There was only one of me. It would have been a lost cause.

My bad. When there is one of you and lots of them we call it crowdsurfing. :laugh:

There are no mosh pits in Canada. Everyone just sits there and smokes weed.

Coldplay came to Calg. No mosh pit. Everyone just sat there and smoked weed.

Heck, there was better audience participation in the Far East! :mad:

I saw Weezer in BC. All these punked out kids were there listening to random Canadian artists play before the concert. I have never ever been to a rock concert where the audience had a Canadian Pride country music sing-along beforehand. It was just odd.
