The nature of the site, and the people on it, can lead to some deep rabbit holes, like this tumblr users getting schooled on physics and car safety, or really specific and fun history. Anyway, this cranberry bog discussion led to a story about the not-so-obvious spider consequences of working in a flooded bog full of swimming spiders.

Remember everyone, sleeping is the time when you're most vulnerable, and literally anything can happen. Not much makes a scary situation scarier than when you're jolted into reality with zero context.

Horrified Guy's Story About His Bathroom Break With A Scary Guest Ends In Public Humiliation

This rattled guy's story about the bathroom break from hell itself, is made worse by the ensuing dialogue about his bathroom exploits to the rest of his office. His boss sounds like quite the chatterbox. Seems like he learned two lessons: double check those toilets for giant spiders, and keep your private information to yourself, unless you want the rest of the office to know about it. This is a serious TIFU story and I'm pretty sure I'd be traumatized from this. Poor guy.

"My killer spider nightmare problems gets worse. Our garden is fully infested with Redback spiders, these spiders are close cousins to Black Widow spiders.

On Halloween this year I was not hunting down scary clowns, I was after lots of Redback Spiders. I made a special tool to help capture the spiders that are living in the garden. It proved to be very effective. To totally clear the area Mr Flamethrower is used, nothing survives the flamethrower. This is the second major spider infestation area in our backyard, The first was around the childrens Tonka toys. Little did I know there are many more to be cleared.

The captured Redback Spiders are added to my killer spider home so all these female spiders will get to know each other really well. The one male Redback spider now has a huge number of females to please. If he doesn't he will just become their next meal."
