As hilarious as this is, and as much as it plays into the usual perception of Australia as a death trap full of things that will kill you, it also illustrates how common warnings do have to be tailored for audiences. Growing up in California, for example, the message I encountered was "All spiders except for black widows are not to be feared." This was followed by lessons in how to identify the black widow.

I was about to say I wish my daughter would overcome her fear of spiders too, after reading the title. But after reading the post, I'll side with AugustusMasonicus: Nope!
It's cool you overcame your fear tho. Bravo! to that.
One thing's for sure, you'll never catch me sleeping next to (object of my fear (can't find a fear I could sleep next to, meh!)).
