Have You Seen This? Entire beach covered in spiderwebs

WHERE NIGHTMARES LIVE — How many of you have ever dreamed of visiting the serene beaches of Greece?

Well, stop, because it's not a dream anymore. It's a nightmare.

OK, I'm getting a little dramatic, but sleep may not come so easily after you see this video.

The video comes from a small beach in Aitolia, Greece, where spiders have become the sole residents. The video is just short of seven minutes because it takes that long to show all of the spiderwebs that literally blanket everything. I know spiders are industrial little things, but this is not the work of just one spider, or even a few hundred spiders. Thousands of spiders, maybe more, are at work here and I feel like the person taking the video should get further back.

Yesterday's Have You Seen This?

The video description translates roughly to this, "A veil has covered much of Aitolia in the last days. It is the tissue of thousands of tiny spiders. The spectacle is unique and refers to a fairytale scenery ... No other comments are needed."

I feel like a lot of other comments are needed and I guess the fairytale descriptor is accurate if you're referring to one of Grimm's darker tales.

If you're like me, every itch or tickle anywhere on your body is now obviously a spider and we'll never be safe again.
