"A clear fluid came out," she said. "It wasn't the prettiest thing I've ever done but I had to get as much of it out of me as possible."

Hey sweetie, I got news for you: that wasn't venom, it was fluid from your own body no different that if you had popped a blister.  The first clue would have been that you squeezed out more fluid than the entire volume of the spider's body.

SmackLT: Every time I hear something like this, it just makes me think that living in Australia is a day-to-day version of Survivor. Just walking to your car in the parking lot means you have to pass venomous adders, poison skinned frogs, paralysis ticks, two kinds of deadly spiders and jumping ants.

If there's ever some virus that wipes out 90% of the world's population, only Australians will be hardy enough to shake it off.


Kinda early in the am for this, but THIS^

TheWarp: Strongbeerrules: Brought to you from the culture that gave the world Yahoo Serious and Skippy the Bush Kangaroo.

Not to mention that goat's piss known as Foster's beer.

We export that so you don't drink the good stuff.


This.

I worked in an Australian liquor store for 5 years. During that whole time I sold one (1) carton of Foster's. Australians simply don't drink that garbage. Tasmanian beer is where it's at.

And speaking of "where it's at" hears Leonard Nimoy explaining the concept:

Redback, Funnel-Web, Blue-ringed octopus
Taipan, Tigersnake and a Box jellyfish
Stonefish and the poison thing that lives in a shell
That spikes you when you pick it up

Come to Australia
You might accidentally get killed

Your life's constantly under threat
Have you been bitten yet?
You've only got three minutes left
Before a massive coronary breakdown

Redback, Funnel-Web, Blue-ringed octopus
Tiapan, Tigersnake and a Box jellyfish
Big shark just waiting for you to go swimming
At Bondi Beach

Come to Australia
You might accidentally get killed
Your blood is bound to be spilled
With fear your pants will be filled
Because you might accidentally get killed

SIGH. Redbacks are not dangerous. Typically, the worse that happens is localised swelling of a limb.
Seriously no big deal here.

Has any other anal retentive Hun besides myself yet pointed out the spider is not poisonous, but venomous?

Does anybody really care?
