Aren't spiders arachnids?
User avatar #465 to #8 - fedegon (05/13/2013) [-]
OP probably meant bugs, if the group of "bugs" also contains things like spiders and those damn centipedes.

I'm pretty sure they still breathe the same way insects do, so there would be giant spiders as well

I'm pretty sure OP meant to say arthropods, which includes both insects and arachnids. They all get oxygen in the same way; using an open respiratory system.
#318 to #165 - dorklordrises (05/12/2013) [-]
Not all arachnids use the open respiratory system. Some (I can think of mygalomorphs - tarantulas for example) have book lungs.

If the oxygen doubled they would spontaneous drop 2 legs and grow an abdomen

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

Insects only have 6 legs
Arachnids have 8 or more (Spiders, scorpions, centipedes)

The bodysize of arthropods wouldn't increase too dramatically, maybe double or triple in size, at most, as the tensile strength of the exoskeleton becomes weaker as it gets larger. A spider as big as the one in OP's picture wouldn't be able to move, the exoskeleton would be crushed under its own weight. Then there's the issue of molting. The larger an insect is, the longer it takes to molt. An insect the size of a house could take up to 12 months to molt, therefore rendering it defenseless.

As far as size is concerned, endoskeletons are better suited for larger organisms (think elephants) and exoskeletons are perfect for smaller organisms (insects, spiders, crustaceans).

Hm.... Centipedes have 8 legs? Centipedes have between 20 and 100 legs, always in odd number pairs. For this reason, they're not arachnids. They are Arthropods, like arachnids and insects, but they have their own phylum, Myriapoda, which is shared by Centipedes, Millipedes, and Pauropods.

Gee, it's almost like oxygen's one of the most common, and therefore important, elements on the planet or something.

You know, I see the pros for doubled oxygen FAR outweighing the cons. I mean, who gives a damn if half your family gets killed by giant bugs, your paper airplanes fly further now!    
   
And you know, some people have some pretty sexy insect fetishes...

Aaaand since we would get stronger, we could probably try to take on a spider, even if it's 1m tall.

If we replaced oxygen with #SWAG for 5 seconds:

Everyone at the beach would instantly get a snapback with the sticker still on the brim.

The daytime sky would be coated in a massive Instagram filter.

All pieces of untreated metal would be replaced with swaggy gold chains, necklaces, gauges, and piercings.

The earth's crust would get some dope ass ink. North America would get a giant tat of Drake's face, while the entire continent of Asia would be covered in a massive #YOLO tattoo.

Everyone's inner ear would explode with Lil' Wayne music.

Also, if there was twice as much oxygen, fires would pretty much destroy everything. Oxygen in today's air is about 21percent. Around 80million years ago, the atmosphere had 25percent. This propelled wildfires, which destroyed even moist vegetation. Due to sparse vegetation, major floods could have drowned entire regions. In addition, 42% oxygen in our atmosphere would be dangerous for humans. Divers who breathe fractions greater than 21% oxygen need to be educated in oxygen toxicity. Because oxygen is poisonous. Too much can kill you.

Science.

Inverse Square Law prevents insects from getting that big.
Also, that's a spider.
Not an insect.
User avatar #461 to #60 - nigeltheoutlaw (05/13/2013) [-]
Doesn't the inverse square law operate off of current oxygen levels? If the levels were doubled then the law would no longer apply.
#88 to #60 - telfyr (05/12/2013) [-]
They wouldn't get that big but they still could get way bigger, now if gravity halved and oxygen tripled then hey could probably get that big easily
#90 to #88 - telfyr (05/12/2013) [-]
though a rapid change like that would likely cause the extinction of most species on earth

For insects to evolve to bigger sizes it would take a while. I would be more worried about unstoppable forest fires and lightning strikes powerful enough to leave little craters everywhere.

If oxygen doubled:

Everyone would be constantly high on oxygen.
Fires will burn much more violently
Assuming an increase in oxygen means a decrease in carbon dioxide there would be less plant life.
Giant insects

So we would be constantly high and using flamethrowers to hunt insects on a barren planet.
