  • Don't click here if you hate spiders!

    You've been warned.

    A woman in Oregon gets bitten by a hobo spider and suffers SEVERE consequences.

    Be glad that there aren't any pictures to go with this story.

    Yes, let's be glad! http://entomology.unl.edu/images/spi...obospider2.jpg



    Sounds similar to the Brown Recluse (AKA Fiddleback) here
    in Nebraska. Infact, my brother just lost a friend who was in
    and out of the hospital for about 18mos following a bite, and
    died from the complications from that bite (heart, loss of limb,
    among other severe complications).

    Interesting story!
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
