in reply to Which of these scares you the most?

About a year ago (in fact, this Friday will be the one year anniversary of the event in question), I was taking my kids to a local playground and while heading down a nearby path which is quite heavily overgrown with trees, vines and so forth, we walked through an enormous spider web strung up across the way.

While picking pieces of spider web out of my daughter's hair, I felt a tickle on my arm, which upon closer inspection turned out to be an enormous spider. Well, not enormous by tarantula standards, but large compared to spiders typically seen around these parts.

At this point, a high pitched girlish scream emerged from my mouth; I shook my arm to rid myself of the spider; and heard a ping as my wedding ring (which had always been a size or two too big) bounced on the path on its way into the bushes.

Every time I walk along that path now I stop to have a look for it, but I doubt I'll ever find it.

Anyway, just thought I'd "share".

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    Do you know any treasure seekers? With really big and powerful metal detectors?

    ...on a stick!? ;-)

    I used to about kill myself to get away from spiders. And if one were to land on me, I would lose it completely, slapping myself all over doing more damage to myself than most spiders ever could. Then an office mate did a little Neural Linguistic Programming on me one day, and I no longer freak! I still don't like or trust them, since a brown recluse put my hubbie in the hospital, but I can maintain my composure most of the time. Good luck finding you wedding ring!
      I fear spiders for sure. Even reading your comment made me shiver...

[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/'s sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
