Spiders bother me too, but...

 
A German woman laid waste to her family home by setting fire to it as she tried to kill spiders in a garage with a can of hairspray and a cigarette lighter.
Really, this woman had many options other than alternating fire and flammable liquids to get rid of her spiders.

Perhaps she could have purchased a can of Raid, for instance, or called a professional exterminator. Or, if she just couldn't wait and needed to use objects on hand, there is always the trusty SHOE, which unless she was Richard Reid should have done the job with no flames or explosions.

Or, given the fact that the damage was estimated to be over 100,000 euros ($125K+), she could have just saved that money and used it to buy a new spider-free home somewhere else. (Not California or NYC, obviously, but a lot of places...)

Sigh.

Comments:
Thank God she didn't kill anyone. I wonder if she actually managed to kill the spiders?
Peace...............
 
That was very silly, everyone KNOWS you use a can of WD40 with the lighter :D
 
I think "moron" about sums it up.
 
OMG! What an idiot. Here I thought my mom was terrified of spiders (runs in the family...remind me to tell you about grandpa!) but at least she hasn't burned anything down to get rid of them. Although she has thrown wood with spiders on it into her fire pit...but that's a different story. :D
I can't imagine that her insurance will want to pay for that...there's gotta be a loophole.
 
Just what an absence of common sense can cause .. . !

I'm scared enough of them myself, but not quite that dumb!

I am constantly amazed at the stupidity of my fellow human beings.
 
This is so not funny, but I can't help but laugh. Earlier this year when we were building our house we bought a can of wasp spray to shoot at the nests they were building in our walls...when one started dive bombing me. I just turned the stupid can on him and was trying to spray him...with a STREAM OF POISON, not a "spray"...I ended up drencing insulation, our lunch, and part of Mike before the can ran out...then the wasp stuck his tongue out at me and flew away.

Oh and umm...Mike has forbidden me to ever use wasp spray again. LOL
