At worst you will have a quarter sized rotten area on your hand.

It's painful, it's nasty, and it smells.

actually, if it becomes necrotic it can get really bad.

"I'm stopped in traffic as there's a guy with a gun in my temple telling me to get out of the car. Thoughts? Should I know the resale value of the car? Do I need to tell him it's not a clear title yet?"

Seriously?

You sir just won the thread....bravo....

I thought wolf spiders were more common to this area.

Might also want to check whether or not it was radioactive. Have you been feeling stronger since it happened?

About a month ago I was at work and there was this big ass spider like the one above. I took the dust mop and was going to shoo him outside, it was working for about 5 ft and then he turned and tried to run up the dust mop pole. I took off squealing, screaming and dancing all over the place. Everyone laughed at me.

:cold:

After having only come face to face with a black widow maybe twice in my entire life, I've come inches from putting hand on top of one three separate times in this year alone.

I've seen more black widows where I live than any other place on earth. They are so bad that I don't do any work outside without leather gloves on. I carry bug spray with me too. I live next to a wooded area so that might explain the large number of them. One day this summer I saw 11 black widows on my property!

We also have a lot of orb weavers, which are awesome to watch. They build their perfect webs at dusk and then in the morning the webs are all gone. They are awesome spiders.

We have cellar spiders in our garage, i leave them alone, they don't do anything but hang out in the same web and eat bugs all day.

I don't typically kill spiders unless they are widows.

My Russian Girlfriend used to go to summer camp in Turkey. She said these spiders (I think they're huntsman spiders) were literally everywhere... and jumped...on you. And crawled over your face when you were in bed.

She swore up and down that they are in fact very passive and almost never bite humans. One guy even crushed one putting his foot in his shoe, and it didn't bite. But still, as a nearly paralyzed arachnophobic, the thought of hundreds of these fuggers running around and jumping on me. I'm fairly certain I would go into catatonic shock and piss myself.
