    Dang - that thing is large!!!

    155 Howitzer! OK, overkill - just a frag grenade.

    Reason #8 to shake out your fart sack at night and check your boots in the morning while sleeping in the jungle!

    That thing was NASTY! I'll bet that a WP grenade would do a nice job on him, though...

    Hello. I didn't notice if those are common to the US, but years ago down at 'Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas, we had a cabin and it was infested with brightly-colored (orange, black, yellow) centipedes roughly 10" long or so. I killed several. No one got bit, thank goodness. Years later I mentioned the incident to a doctor friend and he knew of this large species. He said that it probably wouldn't kill a healthy adult unless they had some sort of reaction, but that the bite was exceptionally painful. I reckon that's true, but don't want to find out. I'd probably just see the danged thing when it bit me and croak right then and there.

    Best.

    I think I'd have to go with a [I]very large[I], flat rock, maybe a foot-and-a-half on each side and about five inches thick...that ought to do it!

    Hello. I forgot to mention that a sledgehammer does the trick...even on dirt.

    Best.

    Hey duckhunter, I'm afraid to ask, but what are reasons 1 through 7?

    Grenade should do the trick, if not, napalm sounds good.
