This startlingly striped arachnid bears no genetic relationship to actual tigers

I'm not really that scared of spiders, but i watched Arachnophobia for the first time last night as it was on cable, and it must've stuck with me because i had nightmares about spiders all night.

Watching that in the theaters was the only true 'bloodcurdling scream' experience I've ever witnessed.  Bunch of folks there were on dates, and they'd tickle their shoulders ever so slightly to produce a piercing cry...

It's like, in this person's world, the clock spider doesn't exist... and neither do tarantulas. It's a colored tarantula. Come on!

Since we're on a spider thread, here's some reading material. Do not read this if you are wince-prone to injuries involving the genital area, are not fond of graphic imagery, or do not want to suffer from horrible dreams due to spiders. Skip the following. If you do decide to read this, I warned you.
Brazilian Wandering spider venom can cause certain people--namely males--to suffer from priapism, or a painful erection that lasts for many hours. Now, this may not sound like a bad thing, but its a possible sign that you might be on the verge of suffering from paralysis and eventual asphyxiation, as the venom contains a potent neurotoxin that blocks glutamate release/uptake in neural synapses, as well as calcium. While you are suffering from this raging erection, your entire body, but most intensely at the bite site, will suffer from excruciating pain and inflammation.
Now, since there is anti-venom, and most people survive, death won't occur. However, remember that bit about the priapism. If you don't get the erection down, impotence is highly likely. Mainly due to penile gangrene caused by the spongy, erectile tissue in the penis not being able to release the blood stored inside. The blood cells, due to a lack of oxygen, will break down, causing the tissue to become gangrenous, and the only way to get rid of the tissue is by surgical removal.
If you do get to a doctor in time, the most common way of solving the priapism issue is by the use of needles. Injection of drugs(saline and phenyleprhrine) into the penis through the corpora cavernosa with a 29 gauge needle along with compression to prevent hematoma is the first step. The next step is aspiration with a large bore intravenous catheter. Saline irrigation is used to flush out any blood that begins to clot. Local anesthetic or penile ring blocks are used as well. In an extreme case, additional phenylephrine is used, but in a diluted form, as an irrigation.
Now, if that fails, surgical intervention is needed.
So avoid being bit by Brazilian wandering spiders and if you do suffer from a bit and you get an erection that doesn't go down, go to the doctor immediately. Or you may become impotent and that is never a good thing.
Oh, have a nice day and pleasant dreams...

I once found a spider in my coffee mug before.  I promptly drowned the spider and washed the cup thoroughly.

Was in Florida recently and got to see one. Didn't get to see it feeding [on a bird], sadly.

I know I'm totally late, as usual when I show up, but did anyone else get the small banner ad about fostering? "Thousands of teens in foster care would love to put up with you"
"Teens in foster care would love to put up with this spider? Really?" Was my immediate thought.
Also, a big fark you to everyone posting the creepy spider pics. The cute lil ones, I'm ok with, but the rest... Good thing I can live off very little sleep a few days in a row.
