Defenestrate arachnid infestation.

Oh for god's sake. False widows have been in this country for decades. An old friend has a small nest under his doorstep and a neighbour across the road caught one a few weeks ago. She called it Damien.

For some reason, they're news, for no other reason than they have the word 'widow' in their name. their bite is no worse than a wasp sting.

It is Britain's most venomous spider, although there are no reported deaths from its bite in the UK

I'm more concerned about the upsurge in bloody huge Hornets that keep showing up in my village

Yes, you did say Australia.  Suby needs to work on his editing and comprehension skills.

ICT: Information and computer technology
Block: Building in which said subject is taught

Is something getting lost in translation here?

Even Daily Wail readers eventually get tired of imaginary terrorist threats and grossly exaggerated immigration horrors so we need a new panic. This is 2013's 'dangerous dogs', although even the Conservatives are probably bright enough to realise you can't ban spiders.

Ayep.

I've never seen ICT used here.  We'd say Information Technology (IT), Computer Science (CS), or rarely computer engineering.

Nobody in the US would use block for building.  We'd say "building"...

Spider thread! Spider thread!
This is bound to inspire dread!
Some are sure to get sick!
Some will cry, "Why'd I click?!"
Look out....Here comes the spider thread!

Yes it's true....We do bite!
And the scars can be quite a sight!
So it's best as a rule
Not to irk us 'cos that's uncool!
Hey there.....This is the spider thread!


In our cooool burrow,
We're alert and hungry!
If a criiiiicket chirps,
That is snack time for me!

Spider thread! Spider thread!
There's a chance of one overhead!
To be sure, we will thrive!
We were built to survive!

And soooooo.......
In broad daylight or near dark...
Under your bed or on FARK...
You'll find A SPIDER THREAD!

uh, subby?  All spiders are venomous.  It is how they eat.  Prey gets in the web, spider gives them a stunning nip, wraps them up and lets the juices percolate.  Sip on their buggy pop bottle later.  Now, whether that venom has adverse effects upon humans, that can vary.  In some cases, it just hurts like a wasp sting, in other cases it causes horrific creeping ulceration of subcutaneous tissue.   DO NOT GIS BROWN FIDDLER SPIDER BITES if you feel like sleeping some time in the next 2 to 30 days. Or if you've just eaten and are the queasy type.  Others, like the black widow, have more effect upon the CNS and causes your body to do things like forget how to respirate or maintain things like a heart beat.

That's because all the schools in Austria are infested with venomous spiders of death. As is everywhere else. Austrians just hike up their skirts and deal with it.

I actually like (or at least don't mind) spiders, but that one looks vicious for some reason.

Big assed spiders, gawds way of letting you know you are still his biatch.
