    Really? Guess that is why the new generation is scared of everything. Next: Shadow support? My brother in law won't step in the Gulf, afraid, doesn't want to be in the food chain.

    B-I-L afraid of spiders, snakes, raccoons, and coyotes. Lives on 5 acres in country, won't go out at night. I'm not bothered too much about wildlife, grew up summers on a farm. Maybe they have support for that too?

    I'm not bothered by "most" wildlife. Snakes don't bother me. Even tarantulas don't bother me (even had one as a pet). But spiders (other than big fuzzy tarantulas) do bother me. It probably goes back to a vivid memory I have as a small child of a HUGE black widow that was on the door of our shed back in West Virginia.

    I found a couple black widows, while in high school. I shoved them in a jar and scared the stuffings out of Mom. Started yelling and screaming. Was in our firewood. Took them to school and science teacher killed them.

    Actually not a bad idea, I wish I'd thought of it!
