    4-Acre Spider Web Engulfs Baltimore Building

    http://www.wired.com/2014/10/4-acre-...gulfs-building

    How many spiders does it take to creep you out? 10? 100? How many spiders make an “extreme spider situation”?

    Scientists eventually estimated over 107 million spiders were living in the structure, with densities of 35,176 spiders per m³ in spots.

    That's actually really cool. Hopefully they didn't destroy it.

    Why of course. I'm sure the neighborhood would love to be swarmed with billions of insects these peaceful spiders are eating.

    Just to help you understand it a bit better, that bit about "35,176 spiders per m³ in spots"? That m3 indicates a cubic meter. Or a box one meter on each side. A decent sized ottoman, in other words. An ottoman you might find in your own house, perhaps. Inside that innocuous ottoman, thirty five thousand spiders.......
