    I usually try and grab bugs with a Kleenex if I can, and then either throw them outside or flush them down the toliet. It's not so much that I'm compassionate, I just don't like getting splats on the wall... :D

    i would say what you have there is a Golden Huntsman Spider (Olios fasciculatus)

    its harmless

    they live in the southwest and wander around at night eating bugs... send it outside and let it continue on its way

    i normally try not kill spiders but just keep them outside. For the simple fact there webs help keep down the mosquitoes and yellow flies

    Aw, have some fun and get yourself a blowgun and use 'em for target practice.
    You'd be suprised how powerful those things are. I needed a pliers to pull the darts from sheet-rock.

    I would feel bad If I had to kill a spider. They are awesome and kill other bugs.

    or taking scissors and cutting it straight down the middle and watch the two sides of the spider fight each other.
