I would rather player a real spider than a line 6 spider.

When I lived in Okinawa we used to catch banana spiders and leave them in the lodge for the new arrivals.

You gotta get up into the north of the country before you find spiders that are big enough to eat a bird. Down this far south, the biggest ones would be smaller than a woman's hand.

But Sydney, Sydney has funnelwebs - **** funnelwebs. They're pretty localised though.

Not once have I seen a funnel web.

Though I was fairly paranoid as **** as a kid about them...

We have lots of Black Widows in Cali. I found 13 in 1 corner of the suspension on the car I was working on. WD40 and lighter. (Once they were pulled away from the car)

I lived in Jefferson Memorial forest for a while, and the spiders there, were crazy big. They were mostly wolf spiders, so they werent very dangerous. But if there were carrying hatched eggs on there back, and you smashed one, hundreds upon hundreds of little black spiders would run everywhere. Gave me the creeps.

Plus theyre fast so when they got inside, they were hard to catch.

Same here. Most of the spiders where I am are either wolf spiders, or smaller, garden-variety spiders. The "eggs on back" shit happened to my girlfriend one time and she about shit her pants. It was priceless. Definitely one of the creppier things I've ever seen, though.

Upon watching this and googling worlds largest spider, I have just discovered the Horror that is the Giant Hunstman spider.

A spider with a 12 inch legspan. The scariest part? They were not discovered until 2001 in a cave in Laos.

Thank god I dont live in Laos. A foot wide spider would probably be the death of me via heart attack

I can only wonder what was going through that spelunkers head when he spotted an unknown 12inch spider crawling towards him from the darkness...

Tube amps are loud, but they have volume knobs for a reason. There is a bunch of stuff that makes a tube amp sound good when it is quiet, least important is wattage.

most of those massive spiders are (more or less) harmless EDIT: actually it doesn't say about that giant huntsman one. but the tarantulas are normally more or less harmless. Not that i'd want to be bitten by one. But it shouldn't kill you (unless maybe you can have allergies to it, like with a wasp?).

but the beauty of this thread is in the details. you do yourself no service by skipping the content.

Yeah, it irks me that people can't be assed to read even a full page. Plus, Craig did a very good job of making the info. Understandable to someone with minimal knowledge in amplifier workings, and it was honestly just a great read.

You're such an idiot. Who are you, his mother? Im sorry i have zero knowledge with technical and electrical stuff, unlike you, the apparent God of amplifier knowledge I read just about the whole first post and i was lost. Forgive me for not being a fucking electrical engineer, dickhead.

Seriously, that vitriol was so ridiculously unnecessary. You need Jesus to heal you of some of that insane butthurt.

Thanks to the kind lad above this idiotic post for laying it out simple terms for me.

Well to be fair, Craig made it about as simple as you can. Trying to break it down into simpler terms is really pointless because it then comes down to baseless statements such as the one I made (I was joking really, my statement doesn't even begin to cover what was actually said). The point I'm making here is that there is a reason Craig wrote as much as he did, because that was what was needed to explain it. I'm sure Craig doesn't like making things more complicated, so why would he?

Im sure he made it as simple as he could, but i still cant follow that kind of tech speak. Im sorry i just cant, my brain isn't wired like that--always an english major, not a science guy. Im not "stupid, lazy, or too self-absorbed" and i certainly didn't "demand" a synopsis from the author. I have no idea the difference between a 6L6 and an EL34. I dont know what a transformer is or even how a power amp works. Hell to be completely honest with you i dont know what the difference is between watts and ohms, so forgive me for asking politely for a brief summary in layman's terms that i can understand. I don't appreciate elitist pricks like tubetime blowing his anger load all over the place.

edit: ^^shove a cactus up your ass, you maddox wannabe
