This is why I sleep next to a can of Raid.
Happened not even a week ago I looked up into the sheets while pulling them over my head, which I've been doing since '03 when I lived in a room with a large hole in the roof, that I looked at a tiny spider only inches from my nose. Popped up, hulk smashed, and was asleep in minutes.
Nowadays am dealing with millipedes. Which I find just as bad. -.-
Yeah I agree...I had to deal with a flying roach last night but thankfully my raid beat him before he got to me ^_^. Although I have had worse. Once when I was sleeping my friends house, I was about to fall asleep when a scorpion ran up my leg. That was not fun....however waking up your friend telling him there is a scorpion is in his blankets is tons of fun! xD

move to norway, no big insects can live here :)
and smaller spiders are just fun to play with, aka watch some clever web making etc, just put a spider on your skin and let him fall off and shoot silk to move to other objects or another spot on your arm etc :)

A while back I was trying to sleep but kept hearing a scratching noise. I got up, turned on the light, and looked around. Nothing. The noise stopped when I got up, so I just went back to bed. A few minutes later, the noise returned. I got back up; the noise promptly stopped, so I went back to bed again. Third time, the noise started, and I was searched EVERYWHERE. Bingo. The noise was coming from a ceiling light. I had a dome shaped light right over my bed, and a scorpion came through an empty bulb socket and was trying to climb out of the glass dome. He would have landed right on me.

About ten years ago I was sleep when I was awakened by the sensation of a bug crawling into my ear. It was a roach. I spend about a half hour panicking and considering various insane options before calling the ER nurse. On the drive over the scratching noise stopped, I continued on to the ER and had my ear flushed, nothing came out. I to this day continue to believe the roach backed it's way out following the cold air as I drove to the hospital, and if anyone disagrees I'll be forced to kill them.

Man, that has got to suck having a roach crawl into your ear and then burrow its way into your brains where it has happily resided for the last ten years. :)

I don't know how expedient it is to remove a roach from your ear with a shotgun.... the term 'collateral damage' comes to mind.

Well it was meant more for protection from Nov, but I see how it would function as a very good roach remover.
Heard about this one a while back.
Nov - This defines a nightmare in my book:
/me Shudders at the thought.

This is pretty gross, you can start at 2:45 if you dare.

Novice, half man half roach.
With great power comes the urge to eat rubbish....
Well I just killed a scorpion, nearly stepped on him =(.
What is this with your scorpions? Are they common in the US? I once visited Australia and hardly saw a thing as I spent my time staring on the ground looking out for one-bite-kills-you animals. The more I know about the state of the world the more I want to move to Norway. ;)

Then the only thing you have to worry about is the price of beer...:(
My father-in-law got a home brewing set as birthday present. Might be an option for Norway too. ;) Although I do believe it tastes like normal beer served in a sports-shoe.
I don't think so but this house is old and the new expansion (my room and bathroom) were built sloppily so bugs like to come in. On top of that my dad as recently added like 300+ palm trees and various plants to our yard which has added to the increase of bugs.
Last summer, I was reaching my back pack to start on my physics homework and there was a scorpion in there and it stung me and then proceeded to crawl on my bed and chase after me. It wasn't fun. :(
Your story, nov, reminds me of that first season episode of Star Trek TNG

Elite appears to be in Texas. I expect them to have more scorpions than we have in Georgia. I don't usually see the evil creatures unless I look for them, but they can be found under stepping stones and in sheds.
And it seems they like shelters. I bought a house last year that was built in 1998, and I found a couple in the kitchen after I remodeled it. My mom keeps glue boards (awesome invention) in her drafty garage, built circa 1967. The blue boards trap anything that crosses them, and she'll commonly find one among 20 spiders all stuck together.
I freakin' hate scorpions. What kind of insane evolutionary twist occurred there? They're like spiders with body armor and spears.

Bugs don't bother me one bit... Sure, being stung by one sucks, but it's just a part of the world.
You don't deal with our bugs, hippy.
one of the many reasons i live in the great white north, the cold and snow keep almost all the horrible, poisonous, crawly things away.

Could be worse. Could have been stung by a scorpion (more than once in the same spot nevertheless) nearly a year ago and still be waiting for the area to heal entirely.
