For all those who insist that the guy should be in immense pain;
Once an infection progresses far enough it no longer causes pain, most nerves in the general area will have become necrotic along with the rest of the tissue.
Kind of more a good toothache than "ZOMG MY FACE".

I doubt it is a spider bite, they don't normally cause such pronounced infections, unless the spider was extremely dirty or crap got in the wound.

I too hate spiders, but I usually try not to kill them and place them outside if they invade my living space. After looking at the one of the links - I think I even took a full grown brown recluse out of the garage last week.
Though I've never had any nasty bites like we see in this thread, I did once get bit by something while camping. It had got into my sleeping bag and the next day I had the fang marks in about 10 places that followed a vein on my leg. They hurt a bit not much but itched like mosquito bites but hurt when scratched. The bites itched/hurt for about 10 days - unlike mosquito bites that last about a day.
I hate bugs because they eat us. I think that would be the ultimate torture - being eaten alive by bugs - just thinking about it gives me the willies. Probably better than water boarding.
