for the arachnaphobes...  
A passage from K is for Killer:

Gingerly I got down on my hands and the balls of my feet and duck-walked my way under. The spider kiddies viewed me with alarm, and many of them fled in what must have been spider fear and panic. Later they would have horrified conversations about the unpredictability of humans. "Eeew. All those fingers," they'd say. "And those big nasty feet. They always look like they're about to squish you." Spider mothers would console them. "Most humans are completely harmless, and they're just as scared of us as we are of them," they'd say.

I like that - very cool.

My stepfather is terrified of spiders, and so for his birthday one year in South Africa, I bought him a little spider ladder that you hang in the bath over the drain, so any spiders coming up into the bath can climb up the ladder - needless to say, he wasn't amused!!
