The Eight Spiders

  • Publicēšanas datums 29 okt 2016
  • A video about spiders and how no one knows if someone once said we swallow them or not.

    Made a mistake at 2:50. Meant to say arachnids and not arthropods.

    I always thought it was ridiculous a spider would come anywhere near your mouth in your sleep...UNTIL I slept on my friend’s floor once and I woke up to a huge spider on my mouth 😑 It happened again with a moth not long after. Bound to happen when living in Australia I suppose 🤷‍♀️

    This is incredibly interesting. Personally I heard about the idea that people eat 8 spiders per year before I heard about it *not* being true, which makes it all the more eerie that this seems to all be made up. Either the loop of circular reporting accidentally convinced some people the “fact” was true, Snopes themselves spread the “fact”, or it was already an urban legend before Snopes decided to retroactively use it to make a point.

    Yet another reason why I don’t trust snopes. They herald disinformation as truth. Some might be valid. But even snopes has a bias.

    I checked out the german "PC Professionell" from 1993, as it was based in the city were i study in Würzburg, Germany. There is one volume monthly, so the seventh is from July. I copied the first 75 pages from the July volume and every page 71 from the other volumes of 1993. It was cased in three big books only for 1993 as every volume is >250 pages long. There has been no article from Lisa Birgit Holst, and there is not a single article in english. If you want to get the link to a Google Drive folder with the copies, please contact me here on youtube. I guess the british and danish students should now have a search for the other magazines.

    Snopes has had occasion of being incorrect and politically slanted. As an older person I've had plenty of experience in understanding that human beings are not logical and are easily mislead. People have the ability to lie but incredibly they fall for them easily. Try to persuade someone to giving up a cherished lie. They will protect it with thier very blood. I am not overly pessimistic but I have a modified stoic attitude. As long as people are not a threat to me or my loved ones they're welcome to their ignorance.

    Spiders are arachnids, as opposed to insects or crustaceous (all of which are arthropods, which means "articulated legs"). Crustaceous include creatures such as crabs, lobsters, and shrimp. Although it is highly unlikely you would swallow spiders while you sleep, there are many microscopic mite species that live on bedclothes and even on human skin, which could easily end up being swallowed, even while we are awake. Mites are arachnids, but they are not spiders, nevertheless.

    Nobody has the time in their life to meticulously validate every single claim they come across every single day. It's hopeless, it is infinitely easier to manufacture bullshit, than to debunk it. All you can hope for is by sheer chance to have a group of people who do the debunking for you as a career, have a high accuracy rate, don't have ulterior motives, who serve as a source of information for you. And that still won't protect you 100%
    . For all we know this video could be a lie as well. How else are we supposed to know, except to recreate every single step LEMMiNO had made?

      I thought that line about Lincoln was clever. People tend to enthusiastically defend their ignorance. If it's not critical it is wise to not challenge peoples fantasies. As an older person embracing paradoxes has become acceptable. For instance, I generally like people but usually to avoid them. I despise violence but I'm fully capable of delivering it. It's black and white and not gray.

    Reminds me a lot of the pop-culture phenomenon of *strongly* hating pineapple pizza. Not just disliking it - but jokingly viewing its fans as sub-human. Turns out, this was a similar experiment to see how easily in-organic ideals can spread through culture - it was a security agency that dreamt this one up.

    Why is it easy dismissable? I heard the fact "Every human has ate at least one spider in their sleep."
    when I heard that, I was unsure, if I already had one, or if I'm too young to have eaten one yet, because I was in 5th grade at that time.
    A year ago, a spider descended from the wedged ceiling above my head, probably going for my mouth, I woke up with a spider in my face.
    2 months later, another spider tried the same stunt, and I noticed it later, after I woke up and therefore moved my head away from the landing zone of that spider. Both times very frightening.
