    Boring arthropods. They lack poison glands, nor can they undermine buildings like termits. Me want big furry spiders, if possible made in Australia.
    BTW do you know beforehand eye color in the species will follow simple rules?

    @1 Come on man, we’ve only got two spiders that could possibly kill you. No one has died from a spider bite since 1979.

    Or as a collegue said on landing at Sydney airport, the sign said, ” Three people died of snake bites last year; Five hundred died in traffic accidents.
    Watch out for the cars!”

    But, as I can attest, one can get a weeping, festering wound that lasts for a couple of weeks.
    Itchy as fuck.

    (Yes, I went barefoot in the garden to trim a branch. Go figure)

    John Morales @ 4
    You have my sympathies, festering wounds are the worst.
    BTW Britain and South Sweden just got hit by a big storm. The Copenhagen-Scania bridge has been closed.
    And the Canadians have a truck-driving swarm of local MAGA hats in Ottawa trying to do their own January 6th.
    And Acropolis in Athens is covered by snow.

    @5Don’t you mean Scotland and Northern England?Everything is calm in my part of Shropshire.
    @2 Yeah,but the rest of them can give you a nasty suck.

    Ah,Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies,bestest cartoons ever.
    Been trying to find one on youtube.It’s the one where a guy has a cat and a dog,the cat is the hero,and the dog is the cowardly
    sneak,for example the dog lets the burglar in the house but growls at him.
    Burglar says”Oh yeah,the payoff,and chucks a steak at the dog,”Here you go Quisling”

    I love these videos, but the shaky head mounted cam is really difficult for me to watch. When you switched to the fixed camera for the previous fly video it was much better in my view. I am only a minute or so into this one, but I hope it gets the fixed camera position soon.
