You should reduce these assimilation attempts of yours. Stop wailing about Teewurst and popular german panic topics. Be a man, be a texan, stand up to our horrible german habits and teach us to do it right.

Andrew, I think you are envious.

There is so much creativity in our multiple different German fears. In comparison your American fear of THEM OUT THERE TO GET YOU is dull and the common answer of SHOOT THEM is really boring.

I assume that your picture shows a "Hauswinkelspinne" (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hauswinkelspinne). Female, obviously.

I think the new hysterical fear is already here and it doesn't have eight legs. It's the far more terrifying real-estate bubble.

It's a jumping spider (family Salticidae), so that narrows it down to about 75 species. See http://ednieuw.home.xs4all.nl/Spiders/Salticidae/Salticidae.htm

If it came from an old window frame then it must be this one. Make the holy sign (cross). If it runs away, beware.

Great, hysterical fear inducing story, btw. (Wikipedia article about it, in German).

There are over 100,000 known species in the arachnid class, so statistically speaking I wouldn't bother identifying one, unless there is an app for that or an expert around. I am neither.
