I know the majority here already know all of this, but I just wanted to say something. I like hearing the clickity-clack of my keyboard in the mornings.
Ha .. Nearly made me crack a smile .. Almost gave you star for that ... almost ..
Anyway .. to get back on track .. may as well say somethin about spiders ...
I wonder if spiders were designed by god ....
Strange how most people are instictively fearful of spiders on sight .. as though that fear is hardwired into us .. wonder why .. yet no one is particuarly fearful of evil kangaroos .. or evil tortoises .. strange that ...
truly makes one wonder ...
While I'd usually mock something like this I got bitten by one a few weeks ago (not sure what type of spider it actually was but I did almost catch it) and the result was a Migraine that lasted a full week as well as general stiffness in my joints the bite was pretty nasty and bruised during that time as well, I was just about on the verge of seeing a doctor which I haven't done for about 15 years.
First time something like this has happened to me and it has made me really dislike all spiders to the point I'm going to be killing on sight in future.
Arizona reporting here. We've got Brown Recluse, Black widows and the mildly poisonous tarantula. We in fact have five different species of the Brown Recluse native to Arizona. However there are only a few documented cases of death due to their venom.
We have quite a few venomous species here, thought not quite Australia levels Here is a pic of a tarantula we found last weekend.
Here's the vid. Sorry about the s**t camera work
