AUSTRALIA — Hi! How's your day going? Good? I'm sorry but I'm about to ruin it with this video.

The video, of course, comes from Australia, and it shows a giant wolf spider sitting on someone's fingers. That part is pretty bad by itself, but as you watch, you'll notice something moving around on the spider's back. As it turns out, what you see moving around are hundreds of baby spiders. Yes, hundreds. Are you still having a good, calm day?

To be honest, I actually think this video is pretty cool. Everyone I know seems mad that I keep making them watch it, but I don't get it. I've watched it like 20 times now. I love it! It's always nice to see a cute little family enjoying some bonding time. Family values, am I right?

Yesterday's Have You Seen This?

Just kidding, obviously. This video is horrifying and the type of thing that would be great to send to all your enemies. I apologize again for bringing it into your life. I hope you don't have any nightmares tonight.
