Same thing happened to my stepfather's mom when he was young. She was bitten by a brown recluse and didn't seek treatment (no one did in rural tennessee back then), and only went to the hospital when my stepdad forced her to a month later. She also lost a lot of the muscle and tissue, but they managed to get it all without it reoccurring.

What if it was a giant, furry, leaping demon spider?
 
2013-05-04 11:59:38 PM
OK, that's horrible.

Even the guitarist from Slayer should not have to die a lingering death from a brown recluse bite. A bite from a Brazilian wandering spider, maybe; but not like this.

Poor guy.

puffy999: It was everything except the booze.


HIs alcohol abuse probably contributed as well. I'm sure he had some amount of damage to his liver caused by the booze. All TFA is saying is that the infections from the bite probably made it a lot worse.

The 2 years of documented health problems clearly indicate this was more than just a guy drinking himself to death.

.....a representative for the band said the bite may have contributed to Hanneman's death more than two years later.

Well that sounds official.

Its was the devil.  The devil in spider form.

I know because only a devil (as a spider) would hang out in hot tubs. Hes cool like that.

In another article I read earlier today, it was noted that one type of spider bite can directly affect the liver. Everyone keeps assuming excessive alcohol abuse, but the fact is, we know he was bitten by an unknown type of spider and developed necrotizing fasciitis as a result.

Yeah, that's pretty metal.  I think the general rule of thumb is that the metalness of your cause of death is determined by the quality of the cause of death as a metal band name.  But, we also have to take subgenres into account.

Necrotizing Fasciitis really couldn't work as anything other than a death metal band name.  So, it would be a good cause of death metal death, but not a good cause of thrash metal death.
I don't think Spiderbite would work as a thrash band either.  My gut instincts tell me nu metal, god forbid, on that one.
Arachnid though.  Arachnid is a good name for a thrash metal band, so being killed by a spider is ok for Jeff Hanneman, I think.

/ Bonus: I wrote the whole post before finding links to those band names.  Mostly turned out accurate.  Spider Bite (notice it's 2 words not 1) turned out to be bigger pussies than I thought, and there was also a death metal band called Arachnid, but the guys I linked to were at the top of Google's results.

That was exactly what I thought. Short of Satan himself blowing up your Harley with lightning bolts, that's a pretty goddamn metal way to go.

Of course, I'm pretty sure that he would have traded it for "breaking a hip in the nursing home at age 97," but still. Respect.

My father's death was indirectly caused by a bite from a Brown Recluse.  By the time he went to the hospital, the hole in his ankle was the size of a half dollar.  Being a diabetic certainly didn't help.  Then he got staph in the hospital.  He was in the hospital for over a week, being pumped full of antibiotics.  8 months later, his liver & kidneys failed.  He was in hospice care for 4 days and passed in his sleep.

So, although it was a series of events that cause his death, the spider bite was the first domino to fall.

I think I must've saw the picture either on Fark or Gawker, but I remember someone had necrotizing fasciitis on their foot, and so much flesh had rotted away, you could see the foot bones. I can't remember if they were planning to cut the foot off but they had to had done that, because how could he keep the foot when there was no muscle, skin or anything?

My mom had similar (brown recluse), but they caught the dead tissue before it was more than the size of an eraser on her leg. She was a large woman to begin with, and that made it worse. The subsequent infection and venom chewed up her lymphatic system, which lead to chronic edema setting in. The edema, in turn, over years of being diagnosed as her getting "fat," spready from her leg, to her hip, to her other hip, and eventually a 30-60lb panus. By that point, she was well over 470+ and gaining. The final straw to it happened when she fell and tore open wounds across the edge of her panus across her abdominal cavity about three years ago, which became infected, and then became Really Infected (we're talking holes that went two inches deep filled with pus and a month and a half hospital stay).

She's currently in a nursing home after an equally bizarre series of events that took her from getting in-home care to a rehab facility. She's waiting for surgery to take it off sometime next month so they can start looking into working the hardened crap off of her hips and eventually her leg.

The pic seemed to imply that they though Hanneman was Satan, or a Satan worshiper or something.  And that it would be unwise to taunt fans who are known for cutting the band's name into their own flesh.

Anyway, the point?  The Westboro freaks seem to think taunting people into violence is a valid business model, so they can sue someone for lots of money.
