Yeah, in retrospect it wasn't very smart of him to go around putting it on like thirty-five different sixth graders... if it had gotten freaked out, it could've bitten someone.

Snake is definietly better. You guys heard of pranks pulled with itching powder right? That stuff used to be made with tarantula hair ground up into a powder. It itches like hell from what I heard and it releases those to cause irritance to a 'preditor'.

That was a dangerous move though. Those things venom can cause paralyis in insects. (Sorry if I misspelled it.)

My rant: I'm bored and I've used all the fabric I can find...I wonder where that shirt my dad said I could have for fabric went.

They don't shoot them out- they rub their abdomens with their back legs, releasing little hairs all over the place. :P That was my inner nerd. I know lots of people hate spiders, but how can you? lol They help rid the world of unwanted pests.

Rant- bleh, it's been raining non-stop for like 2 weeks almost. I like the rain, but.... stop! o.e
