A spider? Or the girl who's scared by the spider? The recent spider photos on the forums reminded me of a recent incident. At work sometimes we sit around a table outside under the tree for lunch. There is this girl who is always "over exited" by bugs. A few weeks ago was the cicada season and she hated it. Personally, I have nothing against bugs. In fact, I am pretty intrigued by them. I believe that as long as you respect them, they won't harm you. So when there is a bee flying around me, it doesn't bother me. As long as I don't try anything stupid, it will eventually go away, and I haven't been proven wrong. So one afternoon we were at the table. Then suddenly she jumped up and pointed right at where she sat. It was a little spider, a jumping spider if you will. So the gentleman next to her kindly picked up the spider with a tissue and tossed it onto the grass. She was still worked up. Then moments later, we noticed another similar spider around the area. So she started to get frightened again, stood up and... well, if you can use your imagination of a girl who's afraid and yet tries to step on the spider. Very often in life, some moments leave greater impression than others. For a split second, her facial expression really imprinted into my mind. I can see hatred, and a determination to kill. It was for a split second, but I saw it. Then I said," Who should be afraid of who?" Some others agreed. And then I just watched the movie Minority Report on DVD, which also made me write this thread. In the world of the movie, should we be more afraid of future murderers, or should the "murderers" be more afraid of us accusing them of conducting futuristic murder? So that bothers me. We will all side towards to the frightened girl, but what about the scary looking little spider? The most fragile and weakest part of the human being is the mind. Think about it, an animal does what it's supposed to do. A human, seldom.
