I once worked beside somebody who was a medic in the army out in Iraq and apparently those craaazzzzyyy soldiers like to stick those things in each others sleeping bags when they're asleep as a 'joke'.Also, my girlfriend was born in Iraq and whenever she wants me to get rid of little spiders in her flat, I like to reminder her what she would have had to deal with if she was still over there. Other than the bombs, mass carnage, murder of her family and neighbours etc.,etc. of course.
I went on a camel in Egypt and apparently there were was one of these underneath the one I was on. Didn't see it though. Terrifying!!!! Our creepy things are lame!
