eat 8 spiders willingly or by mistake?

Well, I find it's always a good idea to treat facts found on the internet as totally and incontrovertibly reliable

Well that's a relief. I had heard that it was three or four every year.

I don't think anybody's eating tarantulas in their sleep...

I'm pretty sure this myth originated from a Snapple bottle's cap.

I remember hearing that humans accidently eat spiders (house spiders)during our sleep. They crawl in our mouths apparently. :|

I've heard that statistic before, but I don't understand how they would successfully come up with that number..

#20 Posted by gameguy6700 (12197 posts) -

That's just an urban legend. How could you even think that it's possible to eat tarantuals in your sleep? They're pretty big, I'd think you'd notice if one managed to pry your mouth open and walk inside.

I've always called bull on that "fact". I find it hard to believe that someone observed enough people for their entire lives to get a worldwide average of how many spiders they ate. Which means it could only be made up.

#28 Posted by LeGoofyGoober (3168 posts) -

this is just a myth.

#29 Posted by bigblunt537 (6871 posts) -

I think the numbers inflated from cultures that eat spiders on the regular.

Pretty much. No such study would get approval it would cost way to much money.

#40 Posted by ramjam23 (188 posts) -

I've heard this many times as well, seeing as how I am terribly afraid of spiders, I really hope it's not true.
