I am so so stupid with Huntsman spiders. They chase you, especially if they know you are onto them. I don't want to hurt them but I don't want them on my ceiling, in my house, freaking me out. None of that shit. And yes, I can't help it, I do scream.

Yes, they run along the ceiling following you like they are going to jump on you. That's why I fucking scream my head off, it's friggin scary.
They do get a bit aggressive in the heat or when they get a bit bigger. That is when I redistribute Harry outside. When it is cold and when they are not that big they just teleport. One day they will be in one spot and the next time you go past they are motionless in another and so on. It is funny.My daughter said that the other day "I swear Harry teleports".
I never used to finish sentences but now....
If this is the whole story, it's a case of extreme political correctness and total bullshit, in my opinion.

Companies are free to withdraw their sponsorships if doing so is within the terms and agreements of any contractual agreements.  I support business's rights to take such action, even when I disagree with the action itself (as in this case).

Lilly Diabetes has cancelled its sponsorship of new NASCAR driver Conor Daly, 26, after it resurfaced that his father Derek (a former driver and a racing analyst) had used the word 'nigger' in an interview before Conor was even born.

Derek Daly claims that he used the word not knowing it had a different meaning in the U.S. vs. his home country Ireland.  I don't know it that's true or not and don't really care that he was fired. 

I personally hate the word and never use it in any context. But, it seems insane to me that anyone would want to punish his son for what he said decades ago.

Conor Daly seems to be handling it well though.  'Lilly Diabetes has been a big part of my career and I'm very thankful,' Conor wrote.
