You've seen Snakes on a Plane....

HAGATNA, Guam Authorities in the U.S. territory of Guam have turned away a ship after thousands of spiders overflowed from its cargo.

The Guam Department of Agriculture says hundreds of large spiders and thousands of smaller ones were seen when stevedores began offloading insulation and beams for housing units from the ship, the M.V. Altavia.

The cargo was returned to the ship, and the Agriculture Department on Friday ordered that the ship not be allowed to dock. It was last ported in South Korea.

Agriculture officials say they don't know what type of spiders were on the ship, but said it's a type that isn't normally found on the island. They said there was concern the spiders could damage Guam's environment.

The ship was carrying housing units and accessories for a work force village expected to house up to 18,000 temporary workers

wildlife and insects hitching rides on boats is potentially dangerous for ecosystems... when a foregin animal is introduced they can sometimes dominate, which is why the ship was turned away


for example... Rabbits are not native to the United States.... and yet they are currently one of the most pervasive rodent species in the country... although thats not an example of dominance, as rabbits found a nice little niche in the food chain


spiders aren't scary... and spiders kinda follow the rule of ninjas... if theres 1, its scary as hell, but when theres hundreds of them youll just be like "w/e"

Since when do you say 'w/e' to hundreds of ninjas?

That actually makes a lot of sense. You know, in a completely 'that doesn't make any sense but is definitely true of films' kind of way.

That's a generalization.

What if I'm in space, wearing an airtight, sterilized space suit that has been repeatedly, and throughly checked for spiders?
