It's hard to believe, but some guy actually burned down the house while trying to kill a spider with a makeshift blowtorch. Come to think of it... no, it really isn't that hard to believe.

Word to the wise: a shoe works just fine. Some people have even been known to use bug spray. There exists a third possibility: leave the spider alone. Smart money says the spider probably didn't want anything more to do with this clown than he did with the spider.

One's heart has to go out to the neighbors. For that matter, one's heart as to go out to Mama's poor nightgown. No doubt that thing is a goner.
