    Could have been a huntsman bite, especially if you had an allergic reaction to the venom. But then a lot of spider bites will have a similar effect.

    Reading this gives me the shivers.... I know most spiders are harmless but there's something about them that I don't like.

    Now I'm thinking of it, why for crying out loud am I building a Red Widow? Must have been those beers moments before I hit Enter on my keyboard and placed the order from TPG...

    I've always played every amp I've ever had full up, because rock and roll is supposed to be played loud. Also, that's how you get your sustain.

    The bite I received from a huntsman was very painful but no other symptoms. It was a very blunt pain, a bit like a puncture wound.

    It didn't hurt anywhere near as much as the redback bites I've had. Sharp, almost exquisite pain that starts to overwhelm your thinking. Luckily both times, she didn't invenomate - just warning nips.

    I use the plastic zip bags that you can seal and I use them for all my different gloves including my welding gloves. I saw on a gardening show that you do the drop and stomp. Drop the gloves on the ground and stomp the crap out of them. Anything that is sleeping inside wished they hadn't and I still do it sometimes to gloves that are in the bags. Just in case and its fun and when you explain to other people who ask why you are doing it you can see they have a think about it the next time they put their gloves on. I also put my dust masks and ear muffs in bags as well cause if it hurts when they bite your finger imagine how it hurts to inhale it and it bites inside or if it gets into your ear or nose and makes it its new home.
