    Organic foods--what a frickin' scam that is.

    People who buy such overpriced stuff ought to be made to watch that Penn & Teller Bulls--t! episode where they did an exposé on organic foods.

    BTW, Black Widow spiders are not normally found in Connecticut. Now that her boyfriend released this one into their yard, I'd love to see the thing reproduce and spread its progeny through the Nutmeg State and New England. That'd be cool. !Devil_lol

    Fortunately the only thing I've run into around my house is a Gartner Snake, who actually does have venom technically, and common spiders.

    Now we just have to wait for the "traditional" lawsuit follow-up story...

    It honestly doesn't sound like this particular person is the lawsuit type for this situation.

    When I was living in Florida 2001-2006) it was nothing to see Geckos, Anoles and Tree Frogs taking strolls inside my house. I'm not writing about a hovel. It was a very nice house which I kept very clean. I didn't mind those types of visitors, I would just catch the critters and release them outside. What I didn't like was the occasional Scorpion that would hide inside shoes (much like the Brown Recluse Spider here in Missouri), crawling up the wall and floors. Those varmints were dealt with a swift and lethal blow. Shoe shaking was a morning ritual.

    Neither was the infamous McDonald's hot coffee lady...until....the lawyers got to her. :D

    In the mean time...the spider lady had the potential for a pretty cool "pet".
