Don't Go To New Zealand!!!

I found this on an Australian news site, it made me squirm a bit.

Perhaps Canada Darrell has had a holiday :yahoo:

Spider bites sleeping tourist on penis10:00 AEST Fri May 14 20101 hour 54 minutes agoBy ninemsn staffVIEWS:

A Canadian tourist in New Zealand has suffered heart inflammation after apparently being bitten on the penis by a spider.

The tourist fell asleep naked on a beach in Northland, on the far tip of the north island, after going skinny dipping, the NZ Herald reported.

After the bite from the highly poisonous katipo spider, the 22-year-old began to suffer high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat and a severely swollen penis.

Whangarei Hospital's Dr Nigel Harrison wrote in the NZ Medical Journal that the tourist realised he had been bitten as soon as he woke up.

"He rapidly developed generalised muscle pains, fever, headache, photophobia [light sensitivity] and vomiting," he said.

"It was a rather nasty, ill-placed bite."

After being treated at Whangarei and Auckland Hospitals over 16 days, the tourist was discharged and returned to Canada.

The venom of the katipo spider, which is related to the Australian redback, was previously not known to cause heart problems in humans.

 :DD :DD :DD

I went to Australia a few years ago with the family.  I could have moved there in a heartbeat it is so amazing, but the number of dangerous spiders and snakes would drive me into a nervous breakdown. 

Our kids were eating dinner each night on a small plastic picnic table with our friend's girl in their backyard (in Perth).  Late one evening I was enjoying a beer with my friend and I mentioned that I could see some spiderwebs under the kids table (making a joke about him not keeping the place clean).  He freaked out and flipped the table only to find 3 Redback nests (a particularly nasty little spider).  That sort of thing gets me.  I hate bugs to begin with, but bugs that can fight back I like even less.  >:D >:D

Aye carumba!

Canada - 1
Australia - 0  :tease:

Seriously, I don't care where in the world you'd care to tell me is heaven to live...if I gotta contend with either insects or snakes that could potentially kill me in my own back yard then I'm stayin' put! I'll put up with some rain and seagulls poopin' on me!
