Google: House Centipedes and then look at pictures of them.
I saw one once. On my very first day of Grad school one crawled across my desk and disappeared. I chose not to worry about it. It wasn't as big as the ones in these pictures, but it was freaky! People apparently get these down here in their houses. And they bite.
Yeah...I'm moving out west. Somewhere where the bugs are normal or at least normal sized.
Those are the freakiest things I've ever seen!
