Out of the Blue

We may be paying a price for our policy of peaceful coexistence with the spider population here in the BlueTower, as MrsBlue and I have both suffered an unusual number of what we believe are insect bites lately that we think may be from spiders. The spiders are actually supposed to protect against us being snacked upon in such a manner, and it usually works out quite well, but we theorize that the frosty weather has so diminished their natural food supply that they are widening their nets, or in this case, webs, to include us. If this persists, we may just have to declare war on the arachnids, as it certainly doesn't make sense to import insects for them to feed upon, and I can't find a single store in the area that serves spider chow.

Oh yeah, speaking of things that have been bugging me, an extra pop-up ad was appearing here upon exiting, and since one pop-up per visit is more than enough already, I have disabled the pop-up code until this can be cleared up.

I'm with Bob on this, I can't see spiders creeping about and taking chunks out of people - esp. when you consider how they normally eat; inject a poison to emulsify the victims contents then suck 'em dry......
