the notoriously viscous spider

It's only viscous after you squish it.

Did you ... did you just tip that spider a dollar?

We should respect the Black Widow's culture and work hard to integrate her 100 offspring.

Black Widow's bite reported to be 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake's ... by the Department of Anally-Derived Statistics.

Engineers at the plant discovered the notoriously viscous spider ... So just chill them a bit and they become syrupy and immobile. Problem solved!

Captain James T. Smirk: Sherman Potter: Captain James T. Smirk: As someone who has been bitten by both a Black Widow and a Brown Recluse, I can safely say "Quit your goddamned whining, England."

Seriously though, these aren't exactly the most dangerous thing we've exported to the United Kingdom. As I recall, Plaxico Burress played a game there once.

B.S. without pics. Nobody gets bit by a Brown Recluse and doesn't take pictures of the extruded sausage hamburger that results.

I got bit on the arm while I was at Fort Jackson, SC. The Drill Sergeants had a pre-arranged plan for recluse bites, even though they were rare and even though necrosis from a recluse bite happens less than half of the time. About fifteen seconds after I got bit, slapped my arm, saw the remains of a recluse, and said "Oh, shiat", I was on a truck on the way to the base hospital, and within ten minutes I was getting my arm washed down with about thirty different soaps and being needled full of all kinds of meds. Ended up with nothing but a normal-looking, tiny spider bite that went away in a couple of days.


Nothing but a tiny, normal looking bite?

That's total BS.

We all know about your newfound spider-powers.

Many years ago, in Vegas, helping grandpa clean out and move his shed in the courtyard of his condo.

get under it finally & he wants to flip it over to "spray"

"spray what grandpa?"

"you'll see"

we roll the shed to a side and between, over, under, all around the floor joists of the shed are webs, black widows, & egg sacs.

Not just a few egg sacs... I'm talking 2-5 eggs per webbing area. Now, knowing that 1 egg sacs can produce 1,000s of new, fresh... ready to fark you up black widows, I didn't like what I saw.

Fast forward to a few years ago I started renting this condo grandpa had after he passed away. & yes, the black widows were STILL running the show in the back courtyard. Basterds were every.where. I sprayed a good 2-3 times a week & I'd still find baby spiders that morphed into those black coonts

Only 2 spiders really, really bother me. Black Widows (I've seen what their bites can do) & Fiddleback (Brown Recluse)... most deadly in the US & unlike Black Widow bites, you cannot feel a brown recluse bite until it gets inflamed & starts eating your flesh.

This is my fav spider picture.

It is something a doctor found while looking in a woman's ear canal.

Apparently this is a problem that is becoming quite common.

I remember seeing one of these giant mats of daddy long legs (harvestman) spiders as a kid, on the porch at my grandma's house. Fascinating AND scary.
They'd start moving and then the whole mass "danced" together.
