When I was a kid, I loved nature books. But there was one problem with the larger-than-life photographic representations in the arachnid section - the problem was that they were still creepy, even though they were just photographs. I wouldn't even touch them on the page.
So I feel for weatherwoman Kristi Gordon, who had a giant spider crawling near her head during a broadcast and gave a perfectly appropriate reaction: "Gaaahhh." Ok, the spider wasn't really crawling near her head - but close enough.
