Um, wow. WOW. After unprecedented monsoons caused massive flooding in Pakistan in 2010, millions spiders near the village of Sindh found refuge in above ground in trees, where they wrapped the branches in ghostly webs.
Although the disaster didn't grip the attention of the media the way the Japanese earthquake has, it was a devastating event, killing nearly 2,000 people and affecting almost 20 million more.
"More people were affected by the flooding than the combined total of the Boxing Day Indian Ocean tsunami, 2005 Pakistan earthquake,  Haiti earthquake, and Hurricane Katrina," said John Barrett of U.K. Department for International Development.
