What's the strangest pet you've ever had? Last year when I was living in Ohio, I found this little bugger crawling across my carpet: That was the best picture I had of him. I named him Eugene the Killing Machine and he beat the shit out of crickets. He was a "house centipede". Here's a better pic of what they look like: I had always wanted a house centipede. So I was pretty psyched when I saw it. He's been dead a long time though. And Ohio sucks.
