Meteor hits Russia, and 1200 people are injured. Another fireball streaks over San Francisco. Another giant meteor squeaks right by us. And then the Vatican is struck by lightning after the Pope resigns. Oh, and there was the ex-cop that was on the loose in Los Angeles killing police officers in a revenge plot against the LAPD that only Hollywood could concoct.
Just heard country singer Mindy McCready died at the age of 37.
Life is weird, ain't it?
No word yet on any zombies or anything, but sometimes, it does seem like the end of the world is neigh, doesn't it? In all the ruckus going on in the news, looks like one creepy story got away from us. Literally.
For those with arachnophobia, your worst nightmares came true last week when in the town of Santo Antonio da Platina, Brazil, these huge fat spiders fell from the sky! Could you imagine eight legged creatures the size of bumble bees floating down from overhead?
These social spiders are known to spin webs connecting webs more than 10 feet long, and this huge colony was probably swept up from some wind storm. Upon closer inspection, it looks like these spiders are using the power lines to build a new massive web-nest. Ugh.
Makes my skin crawl.
Check out real video footage of this really strange and rare phenomenon.
