I make babies look smart, I make you look dumb, I make your phone work, I stop you from freezing and I can make you president. Can you solve the riddle?
I am a creature that makes you go "Ick!"
I can literally stop you dead in your tracks.
I'll come out of nowhere and I'll get you quick.
My bite hurts as much as stepping on tacks.
I'm one of the most dangerous desert creatures of all.
People get scared when they see me crawl.
What kind of creature am I?
If you look you cannot see me.
And if you see me you cannot see anything else.
I can make anything you want happen,
but later everything goes back to normal.
Guess what am I?
