    Can anyone identify this? Perhaps the ever resourceful @mhardy6647? It was found crawling up my arm on the patio earlier today.

    WTF, it would be "Shots fired, Shots fired" after I knocked it of my arm ofcourse!

    Knowing what part of the country you are in would help. I dont thinks it is a Orb family though.

    We have those. They have live birth of thousands of babies. I try to kill them before that happens. I know spiders are an important part of the ecosystem but...

    I heard somewhere if it weren't for spiders, we couldn't breath the air outside.

    I tried to find that white spider and got weird feelings while looking at hundreds of pictures of spiders. I had to abort! :s :)

    I HATE MOST SPIDERS, but the little hairy jumping spiders don't bother me one bit for some odd reason. Maybe since I can't see their little short legs moving, I don't care about them.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    On my way home from work this happened about 6 cars in front of me. Myself and a nurse ran up and wouldn't you k ow I did not have my knife on me. I hear the 60+ year old screaming 'get me out of here". I yell for a knife and someone hands me a really freeking shard Benchmade knife. I cut the seatbelt and the guy drops. He starts to crawl out the passenger side but I see somehow he is tangled in some pipe and metal rod from the fence he took out. Myself and the nurse thought it had pierced through him. A little looking around we see it is not in him. I remove the metal and he gets out. He seemed ok and the medics took off with him. Made me realize I dont have a proper first aid kit in the car. First thing I looked for was leaking gas. Thank god we did not have that problem.

    He rolled about 3 times and ended up in the fast lane on the other side of the hwy. He was lucky no one hit him.

    I guess he just lost control. I did not see any other cars involved.

    Well done sir! Good Samaritan you are! And, I love my Benchmade collection! Glad he was allright, and you and the nurse were there to step in.

    On another note, while searching around for 6SN7 tubes, I found these! Even @tonyb has gotta love these! :)

    The problem with those is that when your feet are cold, they take a long time to warm up. :o

    Dave, Banchmades are the best for sure. I only have one, it’s the Griptillian Tanto but it stays in the safe. Beauty.

    ^ Tantos are all I ever use anymore, I find it handier than a curved edge in nearly all instances.

    Confirmed: it IS a Bolas spider (I spelled it wrong originally), and they ARE part of the Orb family.

    @Tony M jumping spiders are the schizz, my favorite by far since you can easily handle them with out fear of a bite, and watching them hunt is surreal.

    (most likely) it's a Bolo spider, part of the orb Weaver group.

    And you had to mention the “septic field” to spoil that?! 🤔

    Me, too... It takes all four seasons to make the year.
    I think my favorite is summer, though -- summer is brief but intense, and worth waiting for :)
