Three employees were bitten by the spiders last week at the Air Traffic Control Center in Olathe, Kan

And in a stunning twist, the spiders now have all the powers of an air traffic controller.

"You're talking in some spider cases up to 400 and in large breeds, you're talking 1000's from one mom," CJ Workman with Schendel Pest Control said.

Ahh yes, the Duggar Spider. Those can be quite troublesome in large numbers.

HotIgneous Intruder: None of these highly-paid geniuses could run out and pick up a half dozen cans of Raid House & Garden on his lunch break, right?
I suppose a "contractor" will have to be contracted.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: show me: Satan's Bunny Slippers: show me: buzzcut73: /Comic book guy

An ARTCC doesn't have a tower, it is a windowless building far removed from the airport

/End comic book guy

Yeah, didn't you ever see Pushing Tin?

/Wait, nobody ever saw Pushing Tin.


/I was high, if that's any kind of explanation

I actually had high hopes for it, being a big Cusac fan and having just seen Slingblade. It had some funny moments, but yeah, not so great. It will be remembered though as the movie where Billy Bob met Angelina and wore vials of each other's blood for a while.

Yeah, it sucks that it will forever be collared to that pair of twits.

I really didn't have any expectations for it, but would still watch it again on a cold snowy saturday night on the couch.  It didn't suck THAT bad.  Not like...."V" bad, for instance.

So it's a windowless building filled with spiders, much better
