Someone I know was recently bit on the neck by a Brown Recluse. 

Horey crap, I saw a pic of how immensely swollen her neck had become.  I think she made it to the Docs before it started rotting out and got it under control.

Still wondering if it got her while she was sleeping.  That's when those little bastards strike!

Thanks Nefaro.  Just what I want to hear when I'm heading to bed in the next couple hours.  (Granted, brown recluses aren't supposed to live this far north, but still!).  :P

More than likely, she got it from pulling a shirt over her head from the closet.  It's possible that she got it in bed, but, it's a fallacy that Recluse hang out in your bed and wait to bite you.  The bed thing is usually caused by the bed being under a vent or light fixture and the little bastards drop down and land on the bed.  You roll over on them and they commence to biting you.

F that. Little bastards invade MY house, then bite ME? Oh, hell naw.

I'm pretty livid over the idea because one bit my on my leg while I slept. Having each leg pulled out slowly is too good for those nasty little shite-heads.

Really, B_C, your only sure defense against them is gasoline and a match and then move somewhere they don't have them.

I know. (sigh.) But there's nowhere that doesn't have them.

I thought about moving to Arizona in the next few years, but if I do that, I'm giving up spiders and roaches for snakes and scorpions. Mother nature is a bitch.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.
