Don't let the bedbugs bite
A friend of a friend was recently bitten by a spider.
Normally, this is not a huge deal. Most of us get allergic reactions to bug bites, in the form of a painful red bump. Many common spiders are said to be "harmless to humans."
This poor guy, however, got bitten right in the neck as he slept on his couch, and the toxins went straight into an artery.
His face swelled up to astonishing proportions and he had to go to the nearest ER. Then he spent five days on major antibiotics and had to present himself at the hospital three times a day for his treatments.
ACK! That is all... but to quote someone, anything with eight legs is bad.
