    It makes me feel like a bad person, but I also can't help thinking that if I don't kill them, they'll bite and/or kill me in my sleep.

    Am I cray? :<

    Do you live in a place where there are frequently killer spiders? The US is pretty big and though there are places with fun animals there are also vast tracts of it where watching for deadly spiders will instead see you get mauled by a bear.

    I hate spiders and hate killing them but I would put a cup over them and then slide paper under he cup to keep the spider in it and put it outside

    I both hate spiders and know that they're great to have around for pest control. It's tearing me apart at the seams.

    I leave spiders alone since I think they will kill insects. It's pretty funny, I am about to kill one but am like "oh... wait..." and let it go for purely strategic reasons

    but then again the spiders I'm talking about are pretty small

    You won't feel that way once the spiders finally take over the planet.

    I don't want to take the chance of one biting me in my sleep or in my shoes. I know they don't intend to hurt humans, but they're not exactly shy around you when you're sleeping. One gets under your covers, you move around, it bites you to protect itself, and in Texas, where theres a likeliness of being a brown recluse (They like to nest indoors around your fucking bed), then one bite can severely fuckup your skin and muscles by rotting it out with it's poison. Alot of people that get bitten or wake up with bites might just assume it was a rogue mosquito or some other bug, might not consider a spider with potent venom.

    I may seem to be a terrible asshole to the average forum-goer, but I actually have a great respect of life of all forms. When I find a spider or an insect in my house and I don't want it there, I make an attempt at catching it in a non-lethal fashion and throw it out. I only resort to killing the poor feller when that method doesn't work.

    I guess that makes me a good Samaritan.

    The thing about animals is that they don't really mean you any harm - if they're aggressive towards you then there's usually a reason for it, unless the animal is rabid or otherwise twisted. It may be incomprehensible to you (since you're human), but it's true. Unlike people, animals don't kill for sh*ts and giggles - they merely follow their instincts and do what they must to survive. In this case, I would have more reasons to kill people than I do to kill animals - animals just want to live in peace, it's people who act like beasts. Of course this doesn't stop me from being a confirmed omnivore and enjoying a healthy slab of steak - I can't go a single day without my dose of protein. I'm true to my nature, you see.

    Should the very unlikely scenario of an aggressive alien visitation come true, I'm certain that I would have no issues with putting a bullet through the heads of proverbial greys as long as they would endanger my livelyhood, much like I wouldn't have any trouble killing anything else that does. To put it mildly, a harmless spider is not one of those things (unless we're in an Australian setting where everything wants you to die, in which case everything should be torched with holy fire... for safety).

    Cats usually play with their prey, but they have all the intentions to either eat it or "gift it" to their benefactors. It's quite often that a cat randomly kills a rat or another rodent and leaves it at the door - this is a gift, you're supposed to appreciate it.

    As for dolphins, I have not researched them extensively enough to have a say in the matter.

    I know all about dolphins because I watched Penn & teller. Dolphins kill porpoises out of racism. Also, I learned on the internet that dolphins have rape caves.

    Cats don't eat or gift all the things they kill; they'll continue to hunt down and play with prey even if they're already well-fed. Sometimes you'll just find dead mice without even a bite mark on them. Cats are basically just adorable fluffy sociopaths.

    Also, interesting note, cats aren't really "gifting" the animals to their owners, at least not all the time. Oftentimes it's a sign that they think you suck at hunting and it's their way of telling you to "git good."


    Dolphins are murderous, rape-prone psychopaths with perpetual smiles. Flipper was a lie, I tell you, a lie!

    I forgot
    Dolphins will essentially rape anything that moves (look at all those cute videos of a Dolphin "playfully" humping a human! HIIIIIIIIIIIIIILARIOUS!), they can grab you with their dicks (literally, they have something called a "prehensile penis" which allows them to move their dicks as if it were an extra limb), they kill babies, they are filled with STDs, and they're giant dicks to other forms of aquatic life.

    BUT AWWW THEY DO FLIPS SO CUUUTE

    Otters, apes, and
    Male otters that get hungry are also known to hold their pups as ransom and even kill them until someone gets it food. AWE BUT THEY HOLD HANDS SO KAWAII
    Also Crows are watching you and if you make them mad they'll fuck your shit up for up to 3 years and teach their kids to fuck your shit up.
    Don't even get me started on Deerl they're psychopathic murders but don't have the teeth or claws to express their savage sides.
    And theres no reasoning with a rapey sadistic elephant. They know they're huge as fuck and will not hesitate to crush your skull on a whim.
    Also chimpanzees will snatch babies from their mothers and eat them if they're hungry and share it with other chimpanzees while the mom just hides; SO LIKE US.
