I was thinking about time travel, and I thought (much like my father) how neat it would be to travel back and vacation in prehistoric ground. My dad chose the Cretaceous, but I'm all about the Paleozoic Era.
Then it occurred to me that I'd be sharing my space with some of the largest arthropods that ever lived. Considering I practically have a stroke every time I'm within ten yards of a fiddler crab, something tells me I wouldn't be able to handle the local wildlife.
I have a special love for Eurypterids, but I'm pretty sure this comic perfectly illustrates my reaction to actually seeing one.
