    Fella claims to have found a deadly Brazilian spider in the Whole Foods banana section. I wonder if any Patsfan readers have experienced the horrific spider bite symptom described at the end?

    FOXNews.com - 'World's Deadliest Spider' Found in Whole Foods Produce Section - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News


    "In Brazil, emergency room staff can immediately spot the victims of a bite.
    "The erection is a side effect that everybody who gets stung by this spider will experience along with the pain and discomfort," said study team member Romulo Leite of the Medical College of Georgia, presumably speaking only about male bite victims.
    "We're hoping eventually this will end up in the development of real drugs for the treatment of erectile dysfunction."
    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Its called priapism you can get the same affect from a spinal cord injury. So the venom must be is a neuro toxin, can't think of any other way such of small amt. of venom could kill.

    Your probably "flat backing it" at that point. HMM that might be worse. Your flag pole straight up with a white flag on it.

    Is that a spider bite or are you just happy to see me..[​IMG] ba da bump bish!.

    I would never got to Brazil just becuase of it's freaky wildlife. Bullet Ants, so named because their bite feels like you got shot. Kissing bug, so named because it is attracted to carbon dioxide and lands on your face while you sleep (like it's kissing you) but it bores a hole through your face. :eek:

    Of course there is a cure for this particular side effect of the spider bite... a hooker.

    "Honey! I just got bit by that Brazilian spider and I gotta go take the cure!"

    Why do I think that would be an epic fail???

    Brazilian women are some of the hottest women on the planet, plastic surgery capital of the world. Brazilian women take looking hot serious.
    IMHO.

    Dunno. My nephew and his gay lover are Brazilian. Your experience may vary!
