Remember, spiders are good for people. They eat mosquitos and other desease-carring insects and they almost never bite people. They are nice and friendly, they just have a bad reputation because they look spooky with their 8 legs and their 8 eyes :)
Don't kill spiders! If you find one in your house, leave it alone or gently take it outside. Remember, spiders are your friends, they catch and eat mosquitos.

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.
The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert. A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.
The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man). The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.
