I'd scream and then probably have a back spasm because of a quick bad move. I'd be more afraid of a snake though and a rat or mouse.
That doesn't have the creep factor that rats and mice do for me.
I'd poop in my pants, faint and fall back in it! What the he!! is that thing???????
It looks like a huge centipede. I'd be more scared of that than I would be a snake.
If it is a huge centipede than I wouldn't be very afraid..it might tickle. I'd only be afraid if it was poisonous. Bugs don't scare me as much as rodents do.
Well, then, Sweetie, you can have that darn thing! I can think of several things I'd rather be tickled by.
It is a "House Centipede", but I suspect the pic is shopped. Here in the Desert much larger Centipedes may be found, but they are considerably different, AND poisonous. This I definitely wouldn't do, dead or not! Once while we lived outside Phoenix, we had a bale of hay outdoors for my wife's goat. Sticking her hand into the bale to grab a handful, she screeched, withdrew her hand, and one of those buggers almost the size shown had bitten her palm and was attached to it by it's fangs! She shook her hand frantically till it fell off. Very painful, a swollen red mark appeared, which took days to subside. They grow to 16 inches occasionally, when not consumed earlier by some other Desert Nasty. Frank
I once saw a centipede crawling on the ceiling of a house that we lived in. It was about four inches long. I don't know where it came from. I have never seen another one anywhere. It gave me the heebie-jeebies. I knocked it down and killed it. I figured it was either kill or be killed.
They are widely claimed to be beneficial. ANYTHING which creates fear and loathing in ME is NOT BENEFICIAL!
The only benefit I got from it was the satisfaction of squashing it.
Must be my "intestinal infortitude"; I even detest the thought of squashing bugs!
Way to go Bro ...
Creepy crawly ...
MEET THE BUG BAND
I would be worried that a shark might quite fancy a giant cockroach ;
A former park ranger traveling in New Zealand has stumbled across the world's largest insect, a Weta Bug, with a wing span of seven inches and the weight of three mice. The giant Weta is the largest insect in the world, and this is the biggest one ever found.
Most people would have recoiled at such a find but Moffettt held the giant insect in the palm of his hand and even fed it a carrot.
Don't look Gran'ma ... it's a Japanese porn movie ... how this could be seen as 'Erotic' is totally beyond my comprehension.
In fact it Bugs me.
