In a bizarre tale that mimics the plot of movies like Eight-Legged Freaks and Arachnophobia, spiders have invaded the Australian city of Wagga Wagga in New South Wales - displacing over 8,000 residents. The usually solitary wolf spiders have fled their underground homes to escape rising flood waters.
Just think...lurking in underground lairs beneath your very feet are thousands of spiders waiting to run you out of town! And after rising they begin to weave!
Why side with the spiders in exterminating the mosquitoes, Brett? What have they done to us?
Sure, the spiders aren't poisonous, but why do they need to be? All they have to do is wait for people to sleep and tie them up in webbing and drink them at their leisure!
But this isn't the only reason people in Aussie should run for the hills!
More than 250,000 bats have descended on the town of Katherine. The normally shy fruit bats, which carry a fatal disease similar to rabies, have decided they wanted to hit the town! I wonder if it's because Vampire Weekend is touring there soon - because I know I would love to hear "Oxford Comma" live!
