Boring story: My wife put my summer hats downstairs.  When I picked them up there were some webs in them and I thought nothing of it and cleaned them out.  About a day later I found out that it was an spawning ground for baby spiders.  Of course brown recluses, had 6 spots on my head. Damn itchy and made nice skin craters.

You're lucky.  Brown recluse bites can become necrotic, requiring significant tissue removal.

Three brown recluse spiders were discovered in the Shapiro Undergraduate Library

THREE SPIDERS?  Well then, there's only one thing to do.

Not a brown recluse story but my giant hound dog has an awful habit of crushing bugs with her forehead. She did that to a wolf spider and ended up having 2 surgeries with multiple drains sticking out of her face. She's okay now with a bunch of Frankenstein scars

JFC.  That continent needs to be sterilized with nuclear fire.

Mind you, the shiat that lives there will likely just develop MORE super powers.

I've been bitten twice, years apart, once on the forearm and once on the leg. Took months to heal up entirely, and I've still got some nice big scars to show for it.

Bonus, hours after the leg bite I had my first and so far only full gran-mal seizure. One minute I'm eating dinner, the next thing I know I'm lying on my back with chicken and rice scattered all over the room. Spent the next few days in a hospital and I don't remember much of the experience.

/ does not like Brown Recluse spiders AT ALL!

My brother got bit by a recluce on the shoulder one night around bedtime when we were kids.  By the time we woke up he had a crater of rotten flesh about the size of a silver dollar.  They are not to be farked with.

The entomologist that identified the species of spider knew they were found at the Shapiro University because one of the arachnids was heard to remark "Did you know my wife is a doctor?"

Found a spider climbing up my leg when cleaning out a large shed ( or a small barn, whichever way you want to look at it )  some years ago.   I was surprised to see him, but just shooed him off with my hand. I didn't really think about it until about a minute later and went back  to the spot where I dumped him to see if he had that telltale violin. Yup.

/no I didn't introduce him to my shoe. He was obviously very nice by not biting me in the first place
//live and let live, unless you're a farking mosquito.. then you die.

Yeah, I met a Black Widow in the stable once, and she was very pretty and very distinctive and I gave her a very wide berth and we had no problems.

I like spiders, but I wish they were a bit more restrained with their venom.

I've never been a fan of insects because they tend to jump/fly/skitter towards me. I don't know why. I also get eaten alive by mosquitoes. I could have 10 bites on one limb and everyone else has maybe all of 3. I was telling a friend about it a couple of years back, and as I spoke a butterfly dive bombed me. Perfect timing.

We moved onto a patch of woods in the boondocks last year. I can handle bugs more so now, out of necessity. I got my first ever ticks, 2 of them, last year.  I cover myself in repellant now. We get some pretty big, scary and spectacular spiders. I like watching them from a safe distance.

One year I was in a motel for two weeks for military stuff. There was a big spider web outside mynroom

Crap. Fat fingered that.

There was a big spider outside my room. When I'd go out for a smoke, I'd pick up ants or whatever bugs I could catch and toss them in the web. After a couple of days, she'd get real excited and bounce in her web when she saw me.

Heh. Giant fuzzy Tarantula girl in Uxmal followed me to my bungalow once.

Me: step step step...
Her: step step step...

Me stopping...
Her stopping...

Me walking,

Me reaching the door:

AAAH! Me frantically working the keys, door slam and diving under the covers!
