mad-spiders... it could be possible after all

Some time ago I wrote about a spider running in circles around my bathroom floor. At the time I questioned if it might be delirious. Do spiders suffer from mental illness, or (as one friend suggested) was the spider simply burned by the hot air I blew on it and hopping around in pain?

I don't know, but it seems that I am not the only person who wonders about such things! 'lucidiocy' pointed me in the direction of an experiment which uses web design to determine the mental state of a spider.

Hilarious. I called my daughters in, thinking, you know, science lesson. "Hmmm," "Wow," then,

Thanks for sharing.

Oh dear... I hope I haven't corrupted your daughters! Spiders are a bit of a running theme on my blog, so this video is in keeping.

No, you haven't corrupted my daughters. They are old enough, they can take it. No worries.

I just showed it to my husband and he's still chuckling over it.

We, as a family, are a little 'off' I think..... :-D

Spiders... aagh! I'll have to spy out your other arachnid posts out of sheer morbid fascination.

This was hysterical Cecily! Good post. I often think of that little spider that was mentally ill!

Cecily, I put you on my official Thinking Blogger Awards list. You deserve it!!

(This spider STILL cracks me up.)

This is all the more funny to me, a Canadian, because there really are Hinterland's Who's Who commercials with the same music and voice. I saw this one a while ago and it still cracks me up.
