ugh i had one of those in my house once.
or at least something strikingly like it, i dont know if they're only in britain. (im in the us despite the fact taht my deviant says i live in the UK...mostly because i desperately want to live in britain)
i saw these two on a car and they were like mating and my friend just runs over and kicks it and i was like, well some one had to stop them from making more.
and its true. they're the freakiest things ever.
Ugh. We get those all the time down here. They. Need. To. Die. My mom just called them mosquito eaters, but I think that was just something she made up. But we get the spider version of daddly long legs here, too. At least their better than the flying version. Why do those things always feel the need to land on me?
(Here is Las Vegas, Nevada, in the U.S.)
Lucky you! Every September in Britain there's tons of them around. At night, they're attracted to the lights in houses and "fly" in through open windows. Once they're inside, they'll either sit on a wall WOBBLING for hours on end, or start flapping around in lampshades. They're SO POINTLESS. I mean, they can't even fly properly... they just drift along about 2ft off the ground bumping into things and getting caught in webs. GARGH!
Oh yeah!! They do that freaky shivering thing...when I first saw these things in primary school, I was like "WTF!??" and they like, were on a web or something on a tree...a whole bunch of em. They're so weird! I was literally scared of them, I thought they were some mutant spider or something
