Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I'm much more likely to encounter a venomous snake threatening to my life than an insect or spider.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

Depends on the spider.
Brown Recluse is not to be trifled with.

Actually, mosquitoes have probably killed more people then all the other others combined. Think - Malaria, yellow fever, dengue, and on...

Ah, the hell with it.

I really am not afraid of any of them. Wary of all of them.
My son was stung 12 times last week from ground hornets while he was mowing. He was in pain!

I feel very different about spiders after being bit by one. The circle was as big as my palm, raised, red, ached like hell. I had to go to the doctor. Awful!!!!

Yes, my former assistant died from a mosquito. Contracted West Nile, turned to meningitis. She lived a couple years but in and out of the hospital. My sweet Loretta, rip.

Why'd it have to be snakes?
