    If you're not scared of it, why do you stomp the crap out of it? Stomping it indicates you are afraid of it.

    My wife doesn't like bugs and will often ask me to kill spiders. But, I don't like killing spiders because they are good bugs -- they kill other bugs for me. So, if there is a spider in a place that bothers my wife, and I recognize it as a harmless one, I will pick it up and put it outside.

    :confused: I don't get it. I cannot stomp anything UNLESS I am afraid of it? Well, hot darn, let me talk to Webster's peeps and let them know to put that in the definition of "stomp". :p

    Snakes can typically be smaller then you too.

    Jellyfish. OMG. Definitely smaller then you but at certain beaches I was more worried about being stung by them then enjoying swimming. Smaller, check.

    During low tides, some fishies would get stuck in certain 'pockets' of water. Once I saw a weird looking fish and my lolo (grandpa) tried to pick it up (I dont know if he was gonna eat it or throw it back in the water to go back into the ocean) but that damn thing puffed the hell up and poked him. Been scared of puffer fish's since. Those are smaller then you too.
