Did they? Wouldn't say it was the best album of all time but I genuinely like that record and it would be in my top twenty.

Yes they did. Ahead of "Revolver", "Pet Sounds" "Forever Changes", "There's A Riot Goin' On", "Innervisions" "Marquee Moon"
and "Will Success Spoil Mrs. Miller?". Bastards.

On a less facetious note - have you actually actually bought one of those things and if so, do they work? I was thinking about getting one to repel spiders but most of the customer reviews on Amazon say they don't work.


I found that they work in a very limited radius ... like, if you put one at the north end of the bedroom, the spiders all move to the south end. Of course, this was in the pacific northwest where the spiders are the size of hedgehogs and timorous as lions

Facetious ? Me? ;

Haven't got a clue, and I like spiders. They're the Bug Bouncers of your home and respond to psychedelics.

I'm afraid that if I came across a house spider whilst under the influence of psychedelics my trip would instantly turn bad. Just going to have to stick to laying conkers in each corner of the room and hoovering em up with my new ultra-suction powered vacuumn cleaner this autumn, then

Conkers? How does that work. I only like our spiders. Couldn't be doing with the venomous chaps at all.

EDIT: the pyschelic response is the different and beautifully intricate web patterns they design if given a dose, apparently.

Fair enough, but why waste good acid on a spider?

I've read that if you put collect a bunch of conkers and put one in each corner of each room in your house, you won't see any spiders. I've no idea if this is just an old wives' tale, but I tried it last year and saw none. Allegedly it's because spiders mistake them for larger spiders and stay away.`

If I encountered a house spider under the influence of psychedelics I think I'd be rendered terminally insane(er)!

Does the conkers thing work then? I did well last Autumn in that I didn't get any here, but it's not uncommon for them to be the size of bloody saucers in this neck of the woods - one appeared in my bath a couple of years ago and it took me all day to summon the courage to remove it, and I still suffer flashbacks of the incident to this day.

I am, and always have been, utterly petrified of spiders, and much as I moan about the UK one of the major benefits of living here is that we don't get even bigger arachnids and the indiginous ones are not significantly poisonous (although they can, apparently, bite, so it genuinely isn't a good idea to handle them, not that I ever would!)

Oh no I don't like the sound of that at all, what if word gets round and it encourages really MASSIVE spiders to come round to your house to have a pop? You never know - global warming and the resultant climate change has apparently given species that couldn't previously survive our harsh winters a fighting chance of establishing themselves over here. Not that I'm paranoid or anything like that...

I shit you not I got bitten by a spider in this country when I was gardening once. I got a nasty lump on my leg and felt a bit out of it for a day or two afterwards. I've been reliably informed, honestly, that all species of spider can bite and deliver a certain amount of venom if sufficiently provoked. I appreciate they're good at keeping flies away and stuff but I think I'd rather invest in fly paper than encourage arachnids to take up residence in my house!
