Just go for it, they're kinda nice once you get beyond the fact that THEIR VENOM MAKES YOUR HAND ROT OFF LIKE LEPROSY!
I love living in a country where the most dangerous spider is the False Widow, who's bite is about as poisonous as a bee or wasp sting
I HATE YOU. T___T
If it makes you feel better, a man was hospitalized by a False Widow as it bit him 10 times on the neck.
No one is safe T____T
Phew. I was worried for a second that there existed a place where people didn't have to live in constant fear of spiders.
Oh, doesn't matter if they're poisonous or not, I'm still scared of them lol.
Especially when they disappear... That's scary.
this has nothing on the daddy long legs. its venom is the strongest in the world but its jaws are to weak and it cant penetrate the human skin. also pick related
Reasons like this I don't rely on the average Interweb user for "facts":
In 2004, the Discovery Channel show MythBusters set out to test the daddy long-legs myth episode 13 - "Buried in concrete"... Adam Savage allowed himself to be bitten, and reported that the bite produced little more than a mild short-lived burning sensation...
According to Rick Vetter of the University of California at Riverside, the daddy long-legs spider has never harmed a human and there is no evidence that they are dangerous to humans.
The urban legend ostensibly stems from the fact that the daddy long-legs spider is known to prey upon deadly venomous spiders, such as the redback, a member of the black widow genus Latrodectus... It was thought that if the daddy long-legs spider could regularly kill a spider capable of delivering fatal bites to humans, then it must be more venomous.
I talk to my spiders...They are rude though, when I say "Hi." they dont say anything.
But oddly, during the night I wake up to a small wolf spider on my blanket...
I woke up with a large spider on my face.
Did it bite?
No. I went into mad squishy mode.
So, you squished it on your face? Maybe it was going to ask you something...
Not on my face. I essentially spazzed and it went somewhere else.
And I didn't sleep for the rest of the night/morning (I work up at 2am on my face, btw)
Dammit nixie, everything about your country is so damn polite. Even the spiders are polite.
Everything is so damn polite here...
Except the people.
Never thought I would say this, but FUCK YOU!!!
Our most poisonous snake is an adder too! Nah nah nah!
However, our plant life is very deadly.
...Hmmm...Well, just about everything here is poisonous so boo!
Must... have.. valpak!
What are you blind? That's the spiderman spider. If that shit bites you you're going to have awesome super powers and date a redhead of sub-par attractiveness.
In the fantasy world your mind creates shortly before you go braindead.
You take that back. Kirsten Dunst is gorgeous.
-raises tarantulas and leaves them in the mailbox-

This was an assassination attempt.
