    #14! I had one crawl into my glove when I was working under the house!

    EDIT: Wait, is it supposed to be the bad scarf joint on the crown moulding? Oh, that's worse...

    Stubbing my toe. It hurts like hell and it makes me do some sort of weird dance around the room.

    Obviously a flawed list with the BEPs at number 21.
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    Whoever created that list need's to get a life. The only life altering one for me is #1. In fact just last night that exact same thing happened to me, and I've been depressed all day because of it.

    We've got #14 crawling all around our complex. I've found several in our home over the years. I always capture them, show them to my daughter, scare the hell out of my wife with them, and then release them outside so that they can eventually get back in and start the whole process all over again. It keeps me occupied...

    I tried to suck a #14 up in the vacuum a few days ago. It's amazing how fast those little b@stards run upside-down.

    I can't say I know what #14 is. Never seen one that I can remember. They should show a picture of someone using WD40 on a chain. That'd likely get some panties in a wad.

    #14 is a house centipede. They are actually beneficial (eat other pests) but are creepy as hell. And surprisingly sturdy; you can hear them scuttle across a wood floor if it's quiet.

    LOL at the WD-40 on a chain... #22. My mom asked me to come over with some WD-40 because her car door were squeaking. I brought my 25 year old bottle of Phil's Tenacious oil, worked a charm.

    Folks, remember # 14 is actually your BFF!

    We live in an 1889 farmhouse that's full of the buggers. Older homes seem to have higher numbers. Don't harm these guys! They along with spiders keep your house squeaky clean of harmful bugs. The creepy house centipede's favourite food is BEDBUGS which have overrun many major NA cities.

    Any bug that wants to kill the thing that wants to creep up and suck my blood's fine by me!

    If I saw one of the centipede things in the middle of the night whilst making a trip to the throne, the entire plan for the evening would change very quickly. There would be a need for new pants, carpet cleaner, and heavy drinking (to help me get back to sleep).

    We have them in the Midwest. A lot of them. At first they are the most awful thing you ever seen in your life, but then you get used to them because they eat other awful things and they really don't want anything to do with you. It would be nice if they could eat mice, but they would have to be quite a bit larger and I don't know if I can deal with that!

    They're that bad, eh? Personally, the stuff in tropical locations that FLY seem worse? Flying cockroaches. I mean, wtf is okay with that?

    If by bad you mean numerous then yes. But rodents are far worse regardless of how cute some people think they are. They break into any container they can chew through, crap everywhere, carry disease, fleas, multiply like crazy, etc.

    Now if centipedes sprout wings and take flight, then all bets are off...

    'Worse' is a relative term, when the noise is that bad, all bets are off, time to run away... Only thing about BEP is that just looking at them makes me want to throw up. As for Will I Am, what a Deuschwadde... with a Deuschwadde name...
