    That guy looks like he takes Doom on a Friday evening just to take the edge off...

    You will only succeed in arming him if you try to use a broom on him.

    Nope.... The only way is burning the whole office down... but you will need an exorcist as well....

    Looks like a baboon spider (aka: akkies-in-my-broek-spinnekop) laying in ambush for an unsuspecting prey to sit down in the poof

    Very close encounter yesterday.
    What is the symptoms of a bite?
    How venomous and what should you do if bitten?
