So my mom recently told me this story. A girl at work was telling my mom that the other night her husband went to grab a banana and as soon as he grabbed the banana to pull it off of he felt a sharp pinching feeling. He tore off the banana from the bunch to reveal a huge hairy spider (believed to be a Brazilian Wandering Spider, I was doing some research and this particular spider hides in banana shipments). Anyways, his arm then proceeded to swell up to twice the size. Apparently, the Brazilian Wandering Spider is THEE most venomous spider in the world. BUT it rarely ever gives out lethal doses of venom, thank god.

But anyways, if this was me, I would have **** MY PANTS. Anyone else have any stories like this? Just random unexpected run ins with exotic animals?

EDIT: Don't worry, I am not bitching about Line 6.

Man, I have a huuuge rash from a spider bite. Though it was a musquito... but it runs from my arm down under my arm pits. It's jsut red and really itchy and I've had it since friday. It's brutal! Those little ****ers.

That happened to me the other day, but I called John Goodman and he saved the day. After that Jesus showed up with a 6 pack and some pizza and we all hung out and watched Arachnophobia for no glaringly apparent reason at all.

EDIT: What I'm getting at here is that this is one of those urban myth things that all you young folks talk about these days.

I got attacked by a brown recluse (one of the top 5 poisonous).

Actually I wasnt attacked, it was just shipped in from Texas in a crathe where I worked. I opened it up and it was sitting there. It was small, but I knew it was dangerous, so we cought it in a jar and ID' it and it was brown recluse. ****ed up ****.

Its title as World's Deadliest Spider is argued over because it releases venom in only one third of its bites, and in studies it usually only released small treatable doses.

****in HATE spiders
If you're a hot chick you've probably got a good chance with the lead singer or guitar player, If you're a little bit overweight, you should probably go for the drummer. If you're a dude, go for the bass player

I hate spiders so freaking much. I found a giant disgusting one in my bed once. Scared the living **** outta me.

I am s scared of spiders. They are just so sneaky and you never know what they're up to. The just kind sit there and look at you, hatching a plan. And they wander around thier whole lives just killing. They probaly arent even that hungry, only lust for death

Same here.


I have a whole trailer park of common household brown spiders living in my small half-bathroom for this reason.


They don't bother me, I leave the window open during the day; it's a mutual relationship.
