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.

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.

Why don't we move all the bugs to Australia and then double the oxygen. Everything gets better and Australia is no worse off than before.

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...

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.

Inverse Square Law prevents insects from getting that big.
Also, that's a spider.
Not an insect.

Doesn't the inverse square law operate off of current oxygen levels? If the levels were doubled then the law would no longer apply.

You do realize that bugs were as big as in this picture, long ago when dinasaurs were alive and ****? Because the oxygen level was higher.
