Poll: what's worse: crawling bugs or flying bugs? (128 votes)

flying bugs 39%
crawling bugs 27%
they both freak me out equally 34%

so I have a mild form of bugphobia, whatever hte name of that is.

and by mild I mean heavy.

so, I am (obviously) freaked out when bugs get into my room, and as I live in LV cockroaches were more prevalent and they freaked me out, but really it's the flying ones that freak me out more because they're more mobile. I mean, I can get away from a cockroach if I really wanted to but flying bugs are harder to avoid. also allergic to bee stings

so what say you?

if the crawler can also jump.

's just not right man

Jumping bugs are the absolute worst. Especially when you don't know it can jump.

Nope - I take your jumping bug that doesn't look like it can jump and raise you a flying bug that doesn't look like it can fly.

Fuck, I have some terrible memories from my times in India >_>

I think this Quick Look is relevant in this subject because even in our video games, fucking bugs make life worse. Also, fuck Ryan Davis for liking bugs.

On a less terrifying and more fucking annoying as hell note, mosquitoes are the the WORST.

Crawling bugs that hide the fact that they can fly until they dart right into your eye.

There are shitloads of bugs here in Australia and most of them don't bother me, except for these mother fuckers:

They are the worst, silent and stealthy, you don't notice them until you start to itch and the welts are appearing. They'll even drop off of ceilings or trees onto you and climb under your shirt. Apparently they even cause horse abortions. Crawling are definitely the worst.

Does Australia have any animals that can't murder someone whenever they feel like it?

Using this thing is most satisfying way to kill those fuckers.

Fuck all bugs equally.

Truth be told.

Yuck I hate em.

I'm worried about them going forward into next gen (improved graphics and all) as enemies in games. Some spiders in games have started to kind of bug me (no pun intended). The ones in Skyrim are just gross. And the Centipede type enemies in Gears 3 also... ugh. Gross man, just gross.

I like when I say get rid of spiders some jerk says "Well, they kill flies and other bugs" WELL GET RID OF ALL OF THEM.

Crawling but FUCK both

In trying to answer this question I decided they are both terrible in their own special ways.

Fuck I hate bugs.

I was already terrified enough of bees and wasps. That thing looks terrifying on-screen; if I ever saw one in real life, it wouldn't have to sting me because I would have already died of shock and fear.

So thanks for strengthening my distaste for the not-so-great outdoors!

Sshh, no tears now.

Yes, I use one of those to kill wasps that attack me and it's satisfying.
