    Uber is when regular people agree to work for uber and if someone in your area needs a ride, you can either pick them up or pass depending on if you are busy or not. There are many uber employees out there in Michigan now. Usually takes less time for them to show up than a cab and they are a lot less expensive. Just people who don't mind being paid to pick people up and drop them off. Part time cab drivers, with your own car.

    I have a similar position on spiders and such, long as they're a part of nature, and not my apartment I don't care what they do. :) But if say one descends on a strang of web between my eyes and my monitor about a foot away, I'm gonna have a problem and lethal response to it. :)

    Twenty five miles is nothing when you rode competitively. Hell,a hundred miles in a day is easy.
    It took a little over an hour each way.
    And while I do live in Houston and the winters are pretty mild,I did it only long enough to save some cash so I could move closer to my job and the bus system.
    Which of course opened up a whole laundry list of job opportunities.

    Do you assume you must live with vermin in your home? I live in a high rise apartment building. There are no vermin in my apartment. But I have also lived in houses when I lived in the States. I did not have vermin in my home. Why do you?

    Lol. Me too. I don't like spiders in my house. Outside they are fine because they aren't in my territory. :D My house is MY territory. Spiders beware!

    I'm sure you have spiders and other bugs in your house. You just can't avoid that. :) They come in the tiniest holes and cracks that you can't even see.

    Bugs are such are supposed to be outside. It's their home, where they evolved, etc. Inside is aritificial and not their home or where they're gonna flourish. Why I'd love to be able to live-capture every little bug and set it outside as I do with beetles or crickets (I'm not in fear of being bitten by) some things like spiders I just kill. Far as I know, all spiders are venomous.

    I've tried to save bugs before. It's a waste of time. Half the time you end up squishing them. :lol:
