Man, last night I felt something on my back and reached around (rdrr) to grab it and felt something wiry, so I immediately flung it and then turned on the light: it was a dang black widow spider. I had grabbed it by the leg I guess, luckily. Now I got the willies Superpowers.


FTFY.

Also, holy shit, in a real way that's insane. I would be nuking my house from orbit. Gods I hate spiders.

Wait, you've got Black Widow spiders in America? I thought they only existed in Australia. Well, that's another continent I can never travel to.

'Black widows are found in temperate regions throughout the world, including [...] southern Europe and Asia, Australia, Africa, and much of South America. In the United States, they exist primarily in the South and West. They may be found in dark, dry shelters such as "barns, garages, basements, outdoor toilets, hollow stumps, rodent holes, trash, brush and dense vegetation'

Yah they're usually pretty shy, but I've been doing yard work so I guess they're wandering. Third encounter this week, but this was the first time I've ever had one on me and I definitely freaked.

Still gonna market my At Least It's Not Australiaô t-shirt.

Fuuuck. I'm going to have to move to Norway. Denmark already feels too temperate as is.

I've never seen a Black Widow. But i come across a Brown Recluse at least a couple times a week in crawlspaces.
I've always been crazy but its kept me from going insane.

How the hell could you not have seen one living in NOLA for a time?

Damn things were everywhere in my old job at Samís Club. Had to be careful moving stuff around in the bays.

Since the return to "normal" people have forgot how to act civilly. There's been a number of incidences during the NBA playoffs where fans are spitting or throwing shit at players, or running on the floor. The incidences on airplanes seem to be a thing also. Are these overstated and exagerated by the media or have people forgotten how to act in a public setting?

We have them in Canada too, but SUPER Rare. Like rare enough that Entomologists don't see them in the wild here at all.

Black Windows are really cool to see irl. Video doesn't do them justice. The pitch black that has an odd sheen to it and the very pronounced bulbous abdomen with that red hourglass is beyond majestic. But seeing one close up strikes right to our lizard brain that says "leave the fuck alone."

I think I'm just too spoiled by living in Denmark. Nothing in our environment is particularly dangerous. The insects aren't deadly and don't grow bigger than a finger nail.

The notion that all these creepy things are inching closer to Scandinavia because of the climate is the real climate crisis. I need to move further North!

I've heard Greenland is becoming much more habitable - Of course then I have to worry about the inevitable US/China/Russia ressource war or getting stabbed by a drunk Eskimo.

I think the worst thing you have in Denmark are Vipers.

But if you google a list, apparently it's woodlice. WOOD LICE.

Denmark's friggin boring man. LOL

I agree with Malan that black widows are genuinely beautiful when you see them in person (at least the female ones), but they are like lab-designed to hit almost every fear button in an arachnophobe (I'm not too severe, as I can handle little cuties like the wolf spider and big fat uglies like the sun spider we also have around here).
Anyway, in terms of my groove, I spent all day in the ER in pain, w/ the ultimate diagnosis: kidney stone. It's small but apparently a nasty one. I am not looking forward to peepeeing it out.

See the trick is to be introverted and stay in doors all day. That way you can't be challenged to a blood duel every other day.

The whole population of Norway just nodded in agreement.
