    Not really sure our spiders deserve the flak they get.
    No one in Australia has died from a spider bite since 1979. Anti-venom is readily available at hospitals and a lot bites aren't even envenomating.
    Funnel webs are pretty rare in Sydney suburban areas and as long as you remember to check inside your shoes before you put them on and don't go digging in the yard without gloves you will avoid them.
    Redbacks are bloody everywhere but they're kinda shy. White tails are the real pain in the arse 'cause they like to explore and tend to wander into your house at night.
    That said, I've been bitten by Redbacks and once by a white tail spider. The Redback bites made me a slightly nauseated. The white tail just left an itchy bump. Kinda painful though.
    Also, spiders are natures fly swatters. I like to keep a few webs set up outside under the roofing just so I can read out there in peace and quiet without having to constantly swat away flies.

    Thanks guys.. I was about to finish up my Chem Eng hw and go to bed.. spent all night on that shit ready to go to bed and now I won't sleep for a week... I need to stop checking these forums..

    My traumatic story was when I was 11. I lived in a countryside area near Appalachian. During a summer i left my window open because it was hot as balls. But as I got under the sheets I felt a small pain in my leg, and then another one except the 2nd pain was a little stronger. So I looked under it and saw this spider about 2 inches big ran away and out the window (the window sill is by my feet at the perfect height with my bed). I started to cry and went to mom and dad and within those seconds my leg was almost numb as fuck and the 2 spots i got bit left 2 giant target like marks that ended up staying there for a few days. I went to the hospital and got some medicine that had no effect on it whatsoever and I had to deal with a 'dead leg' for the rest of the night and extreme itching and pain for the next week... Still never found out what that spider was. Now anytime i see a spider I flip the fuckity out and get either super pissed off and go rage mode on it or freeze and run...

    I still have clicked on the imgur link that everyone is saying they wont sleep now.. i am so curious to do it though! oh god help me.

    Man some of these spider stories are just EEEEEP! Mine not nearly as much, but in junior school (I'd be about 8 years old) our teacher had a thing for creepy crawlies, in the classroom she kept giant african land snails, madagascan hissing cockroaches and a fucking tarantula - what in the hell happened to hamsters, guinea pigs & goldfish huh! She used to get the cockroaches out (I'm fine with them) but also loved getting the tarantula out as well, first time she's all like "aww c'mon, it won't hurt you" as she's carrying it round (I got the hell out very quickly!), so bitch sends a letter of concern home to my parents because I walked out the class! So my Dad gets this letter & calls me over to find out why I'd bolted, I told him and he went nuts & demands to see the school board & head teacher it all gets sorted and she's told "listen, don't pull that stunt again, some kids just don't like spiders!".

    So a few months later we're getting on with business and someone notices the box is empty - uh oh - teacher says to stay calm, she (the beast) had probably not gone far as she'd just fed her that morning, I open my tray where you kept work etc to see the thing sitting there, well, fight or flight time, I ran the fuck away and climbed up the storage shelves in the class! (it was an old building with ceilings like 15ft up, the shelves went 10ft and I got up there!) My Dad went balistic, oddly enough a short while later I moved schools due to repeated failures of their system which lead to me swinging a bat at someone's face but I've never been so happy to leave a place in my life! What sort of a bloody psychopath keeps a fucking tarantula in a classroom of 8 year old kids!

    It might just be an Old Wives' Tale, but placing conkers, from a horse-chestnut tree, in the corners of rooms are supposed to repel spiders.

    Spiders scare me. I've been told that spiders are more afraid of you than you are of them. I know this to be false. I have had spiders chase after me before.
    That's so adorable!

    Actually there are some "fact-collector" website that says that an average person eats 2 spiders in their life during sleep.

    Also that there is a spider (guaranteed) at any given time within 7 yards, they live everywhere.

    No spiders in Hawaii? You kidding? Google cane spiders. Those are the bastards that have been known to chase you around the room....I had one of those get into my car through an open window. I smoked his ass out because I knew I couldn't drive the car with it in there...

    Here's some more that live there. I lived there for 8 years and I saw spiders allot.

    Something like that actually happened too me. Smaller spider but it just sat on the kleenex as if it was gloating, it knew it had beat me.

    I hate toilet spiders, cuz you're already so vulnerable. Then, BAM! Fucking creepy looking bastard near the toilet paper or on the floor and scurrying around and shit, panicking. It's a closed space, your pants are down, it could be game over depending on the species! There you'll be, convulsing on the shitter, half empty because some horrible spider bastard ended you in what should be a moment of peace!
