Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: When my cousin was camping in TN, he was bitten on the scrotum by a recluse. Luckily he only had a mild reaction, no necrosis or scarring.

I just think it's incredible that you potty trained that thing. It must of taken a lot of patience.

In other news, The UN's World Health Organization ranks the American Health System at #35 for quality, right after Costa Rica but (thankfully) ahead of Slovenia.

maxpower007: My worst experience with spiders happened when I was 14. I live in Illinois and me and two friends went up to a cottage on Lake Saint Clair in Michigan. It was summer and the cottage was not winterized. They got there ahead of me with their mom. I got there in the afternoon and noticed a couple spiders here and there. When the sun started going down it was like a freaking horror movie though. Bastards were everywhere. HUNDREDS of them. I think we were up until 4am killing spiders, and probably was only able to sleep because we were exhausted.


GAH! I would lose my shiat if that happened to me.

The first time my husband and I took the kids to No. Ga. on summer vacation, we hit this national
park and went hiking around. At the end of the day, we're tired and heading back to the van. I
look down and I see more than a couple of good sized squished spiders on the ground. So I start
looking around and I hear a soft 'plop' behind me. I turn and one fell from somewhere above me.

So in horror-movie-like slow motion, I glance upward and it was everything I could do not to run
screaming like a little girl. They were in the freaking TREES! HUNDREDS of them. Their nasty
webs were strung like nets and they were just EVERYWHERE. Ugh!

I herded the kids to the van in record time after that.

My sister was bitten by one when she was in High School. Seeing my mom squeeze green puss out of it like it was a mutant pimple was one of the worst things I've ever seen. Too bad a megapixel camera in every thing you own and youtube weren't around back then.

What can Brown (recluse) do for you?

Questions for the freak out mom:

A: How did your daughter get the spider on the back of her freakin' head?

B: PSTD, really?

C: Why are you really upset?

Let me guess, the teacher brought it to school in a tightly fitted jar and the class brat, who she told 1.0x10^6 times not to open it opened it and is now in the hands of Darwin.

Wolf892: My apartment is full of brown recluse. It freaks me out late at night when they come out from hiding to hunt. My land lady wants me to catch them and release them outside. Nope, its the shoe each and every time. They are dangerous pests that need to take a cue from the black widow and stay hidden away from humans as much as possible.


You live in Canada? They're probably not brown recluse spiders unless someone is intentionally releasing them into your apartment. Made enemies with any spider breeders lately?

BarkingUnicorn: Lt. Cheese Weasel: I live in fear of Brown Recluse Spiders. I have tape traps under my bed. I have traps in my closet. Not a single article of clothing I wear ever hits the floor. There is no unclear corner on any wall.
I am ready. Come at me bro.

I once GISed brown recluse spider bites. That was enough.

Caught anything?


Some wolf spiders and a roach.

"Diandra Jones told CBS Atlanta News that her child fell victim to the spider two years ago at Brookview Elementary School. That spider was a brown recluse. "

No no. The article isn't two years old. The mother is complaining that this happened TWO YEARS AGO, and is now trying to bring it to attention.

I don't expect quick, calculated responses from someone named "Diandra" though.

While Jones' daughter survived the bite, she now suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Spider Disorder.

F*cking 50/50 chances, how do they work?

I hope they have more evidence of the bite, because I can't see shiat in those pictures.
