It's a spider for crying out loud, and not even the venomous kind. You'd think it was made of nitroglycerin.

SYDNEY, Au. (AP) --- A new species of spider has been discovered in Queensland, as researchers scramble to document the finds. A prominent biologist stated, "These are very peculiar, as a good part of them appears to be non-biological in origin. We can't figure out what it is, though, cause every time we send someone to trap one of them, they disappear, and all we can find later is scattered blood and tissue and traces of nitroglycerin. We suspect sabotage." The government is considering a grant of $5,000,000 to study the mysterious arachnids.

I'd play any kind of Keen mod, seeing as how the only time when new mods are Meade is usually March 14th.....

Then you throw a sponge at it from a distance. Why would you try and capture a nitrospider? What's wrong with you?

I don't try to capture any spiders

Nah honestly it was just the jumpscare part that got me, I don't really mind spiders.

still off topic:
remember 2001:Space Odyssey, or the Dr Who and the Star Trek intros? they were all made with the Slit Scan technique.

here is a quick explanation of how things work:

and here you can check out some quite interesting examples:

I was asking in the first place, cause I was hoping that you might can help me with my new raspberry pi slit scan project...

Reminds me of the exploding throwing spiders from Skyrim. It'd make a pretty awesome b-grade movie honestly...
