Woman Finds Brazilian Wandering Spiders In Her Banana

Consi Taylor was half done eating the banana when she noticed white spots on the peel. Upon closer inspection, she realized those spots were moving, and when dozens of the spots jumped off the banana and began quickly scattering around her family’s home, she realized they were SPIDERS. As if this fruit horror story wasn’t horrible enough, they weren’t just any spiders, either — they were Brazilian wandering spiders, AKA the deadliest spider in the world, with venom powerful enough to kill a grown man in about an hour.

Listen, as a scatterbrained creative type with unmedicated ADD, I’m never going to get down on anyone for being absentminded. But, like, if you’re an acupuncturist, you might want to set a timer or something after you fill a patient with needles, because if you don’t, you might forget about them, go home for the day, and lock the door behind you. This is exactly what happened to a very unlucky woman who was getting an acupuncture treatment at a clinic in Arlington, Texas. After getting the needles inserted, she was trying to relax but instead watched helplessly as her acupuncturist left the building and locked up. After calling for help for 5 minutes, she was forced to pull the needles out herself (!!) to be able to get to her phone to call 911. The police asked a worker from a different business in the same building to unlock the door and let the poor woman out. The acupuncturist, meanwhile, was totally baffled and embarrassed by his mistake. I’m not ready to rule out the possibility that this is some kind of radical new treatment for people with abandonment issues, but either way, I think I’ll pass. [Daily Mail]

Worst Nightmare: Toddler Hides Eggs In His Closet; Hatches 7 Deadly Snakes

Boy Steals Parents' Life Savings...
...and uses it to buy candy. Read More »

Kyle Cummings, a three-year-old boy from Queensland, Australia, was delighted to find a pile of eggs in his backyard, so he did what any toddler would do: he scooped them up and stashed them in his closet. Three days later, his mother discovered the not-so-delightful result of her son’s curiosity, when seven eastern brown snakes–the second most venomous snake in the world–came slithering out. Luckily the newborn snakes were not big enough to inflict dangerous bites (the amount of venom in one bite from an adult brown snake is enough to kill 20 people), and a wildlife group was able to capture the snakes and release them back into the wild. In the understatement of the year, Kyle’s mother, Donna Sims describes her reaction to finding a deadly snake nest in her home: ”I was pretty shocked, particularly because I don’t like snakes.” Shudder.
