what should i do?
it's about an inch and a half long if that makes a difference
large glass tumbler and cardboard
chuck that fucker outside - a long way outside
i don't particularly want to step on it in the morning but i get the feeling it might be keeping away worse things.
and quickly turn aggressive
you don't want it hanging about
and at that size it's not likely to be keeping anything particularly dangerous away
is it really that bad to just leave it? i killed the last one and i still feel bad about it. it saw it kill a spider.
there's a whole eco system at work
my suggestion is not to kill it, just to take it for a long walk and leave it
by the way... what colour is it?
it's brown - dark brown with light brown stripes. the legs are kinda transparent.
is that bad? D:
well it won't kill you then (unless you're allergic)
just make sure you shake out all your shoes/clothes before you put them on
and hope it's a male
because the females can give birth to a 100 young 'uns at a time (live young, not eggs)
it's gone under the sofa again now i can't even see it fuck
i'm never moving south of the snow line
except for males in desperate search of a mate
they're no worse than wasps
wasps that hide in your jeans and sting you ten times when you put them on in the morning
about the size of a thumb
they are fucking frightening
jizzed on its back.
they've made their way to my part of the world and the fuckers are hanging around our back lawn, which is preventing our kids from going outside to play, which is one of the main reasons why we landscaped the backyard with a lawn in the first place.
and they've got the whole hive mind thing.
Plus I'm not keen on putting my preschool kids in situations where they are very likely to get stung.
on the Isle Of Sheppey in Kent. It's thought that they came off the banana boats that docked in Sheerness. My dad used to take me to see them sometimes when we visited his family down there.
now i can sound more knowledgeable as i moan about the scorpions under my sofa :)
i think it's playing dead, which is fucking stupid because i saw it run out from under the sofa! thicko scorpion cunt.
this is better than a 3 inch cockroach
i was shit at sim ant.
poor ant :'(
goodbye childhood, i hardly knew ye
so my childhood lives on
that or MAN UP and eat the fucker.
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change
if a german hair metal star crawled out from under my sofa i would NOT be asking for advice
the scorpion just shuffled towards me. time for a beer!
best 16bit video game EVERRrrr http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCxiP4blwmo
i feel like i should know it but that would explain why.
I still have my Mega CD copy. pretty sure it's one of the most valuable 16bit era games. way too good to sell though.
...persuade a frog to give it a ride across a river.
you'll carefully peak out the corner of your eye and catch him doing the same thing
The suspense is killing me!
Potent the venom?
I'm sure it is.
Potent the Venom
New Slang, £5otd, etc.
And you drop a little bit on its face (to blind it and render its senses useless, and then put some on its tail to render the poison useless. After that, pick it up put it inside a bottle of methylated spirits where it will pickle nicely and all the poison will draw out of it. I saw an african guy do this with a scorpion as large as my hand. The next day he came back to present us with a perfectly pickled scorpion as a present. I didn't really know what to do with it.
I'm not sat behind a desk in dull grey old blighty
Thanks for ruining the one funny thing I'm going to say on here all day.
use the above mentioned glass and newspaper routine.
