It seems like only two weeks ago a Kansas woman set her home on fire trying to deal with the ever-present spider menace. Well, the same thing has just happened with a Seattle man. From Komo News:

A man who lived at the home told fire officials he was trying to kill a spider in his laundry room using a can of spray paint and a lighter when the wall caught fire, according to Kyle Moore with the Seattle Fire Department. The man wasn't able to put the fire out himself, and he left the home when it began to spread.

Somewhere out there is a spider with burn wounds and a taste for vengeance. Congratulations, Seattle man, you've created the first spider super villain.

So sure, scorpion flies are harmless, but that doesn't mean they won't forever haunt your dreams.

But there is no way I'm posting the photo of that orbit-nuking candidate on here because it's just way too creepy.

So, instead, I've taken the liberty of providing you with some preemptive eye bleach in the form of a puppy na
