    We have "hobo" spiders in the American northwest (not sure how big their range is). Everyone kept telling me that they have the same kind of necrotic venom that brown recluse spiders do, while everything that I've read, including Orkin's website, insists that this is a myth. On Thanksgiving I went to a coworker's house, had a little too much to drink and wanted to see if I could put that myth to rest when I found a hobo spider. No amount of provoking that sucker could get it to bite me.

    So I guess I couldn't confirm anything except that it must take A LOT to get bitten, which is kind of reassuring.

    That also was not something I think I could ever repeat sober.

    @Barriss_Coffee I'm pretty sure you've broke @anakinfansince1983 with those pics. (If she even looked at them.) Kinda like that BBT ep where Howard broke Sheldon. "MOMDONTLETSPOCKTAKEMETOTHEFUTURE!"

    I would imagine you also get Brazillian Wandering Spiders (I think their range extends into Central America). They are the most dangerous spider species.

    LOL, I'm am tempted to edit out the spoiler tags just to be mean.

    Hmmm. Thanks mate. I'll be on the lookout.

    They weren't this fellow who visited my tent one day, I hope?

    Doesn't look like it, but I can't tell based on the silhouette. I'm not great at IDing spiders.

    Yeah, looks too skinny. Probably for the best since I prodded him out of the window with a stick. :p

    All this spider talk makes this little scene from Alien: Resurrection come to my mind for some reason:

    Wow I didn't see that one before. Apparently the Alien franchise had to upgrade their monster budget for that scene.:p

    After Seerow's comment last night I have a new fear of what my unban screen will look like if I don't stay out of trouble.

    "You are a terrible person. George Lucas hates you. The Mod Squad hates you more.

    Here, have a spider the size of the Executor but with more teeth."

    This film was the biggest disappointment ever. For anyone that complains about the prequel trilogy after the original trilogy, it doesn't compare to Alien: Resurrection following up the first three alien films... It was still cheesy fun to some extent, but I can't sit down an watch this film and think that it actually has any kind of continuity with Alien 3 (just like I can't see TCW and the PT as occupying the same universe).

    :(I heard others say that subplot was, er,... not handled well. Guess I have to see it myself.


    Happy Birthday, @anakinfansince1983!

    I admit I was tempted to search for the picture of a spider-shaped cake to post here, but I see you already got your share.

    I expect to see things like that from Mr. "Palpatine, with animals"...

    but not from you.

    I like Disney movies from Little Mermaid onward, but I have a bad feeling about this.

    I think Disney should have just had a Jafar/Evil Queen 'ship and saved themselves one character model.

    It was inevitable that this would happen at some point. I just didnt think it would take seven years.

    Just got a second monitor and having fun messing around with it. Sooooooooo cool. Even though I'm on a laptop, I can't go back to just one screen.
