Bravery in the Face of Giant Space Spiders. Or the Lack of it.

I’m not scared of spiders, let’s be clear on that from the start off. When the kids scream from their bedroom that the tiniest spider in the world is looking at them funny from the corner of their room, I’m the first to dart up the stairs like some sort of arachnid-battling super-hero to save them from the terrifying little beasties.

Actually, what super-heroes fight spiders? I mean, Spider-Man seems to have done quite an adequate job of making the spider theme more positive than you’d expect. Perhaps I’m a spider-battling super-villain. Maybe the lines between good and evil are blurred and not instantly clear, like there’s some sort of differentiation between real life and comic books and 1980s cartoons.

Sorry, where was I? Oh, yeah, giant space spiders jumping at my face like fucking bastards. I’ve been doing the Twitch again, this time VR FPS (virtual reality first person shooter, middle aged women fanbase) Farpoint. Have a watch of the video, see how brave and sensible I am when faced with a hostile alien world, armed only with a space laser that does a blue light thing.

I think it’s the fact I can’t do first person shooter games because I get too excited that’s the problem, not the spiders per se. I’m more at home with a 3rd person action game, with that one-step-back that stops me getting too involved with the thing. I’m honestly gonna have to grow some balls if I’m gonna keep doing this VR thing more.

Anyway, just thought I’d share that video so you can make fun of me. Bye then.
