Hey kman, I wasn't having a go at you yesterday I remember saying what I said..

I've been on the drink since new year and yesterday I went threw two bottles of Vodka. Drunk does not cover the state I was in.

I'm sitting here now and I can feel my self shaking. I'm not sure what it is or why.

Holy ****ing **** I had no idea how much lint can fit in an iphone lightning connector port. That **** was so compressed from me plugging the cable in. I picked it all out and in compressed from it formed a small mound over a 2cm x 2cm area That might solve my CarPlay disconnecting issue...

Back on Spiders... I get those black harry jumping spiders and they are very fast and hard to kill.
We also get those yellow "banana" spiders too, they are called yellow sac spiders and they bite more often and have a worse bite than most other house spiders

They probably account for more spider bites than any other spider and their bites are sometimes misdiagnosed as brown recluse bites by health care providers.

Get this, Joe, and you will get rid of your spider worries.

Spectracide« Bug Stop« Home Barrier (Ready-to-Use) | Spectracide

Our previous house was old, built in 1920. We had a heck of a time with spiders and other creepy-crawlies when we first bought it but we had used Bug Stop previously to get rid of roaches and I knew it worked on spiders and other bugs as well. Killer stuff quite literally. The only things I found that it was not effective against were termites and carpenter ants.

Yellow sac spiders aren't what we were referring to. Carnage said the correct name to what I was calling a banana spider. Although, yellow sac spiders are ****ing dicks.

up north where I am from, we call those yellow sac spiders "banana spiders" they usually hang out in the corner of the ceiling and wall, where they build their web sacs, They are usually in the higher places... not around the floor.
Trotter... I have the Black Flag spider & scorpion killer in a spray can.... gets in those ceiling corners. This year has not been very bad for spiders though.
Never had an Orb spider in the house, They make big round giant webs outside.

Some more info about spiders here:

We have them here, they've made a few web sacs on my curtains in my room. Orb Weavers remind me of Skulltulas lol.

Can someone train me on the american language.

I go on a lot of car subreddits. And i've noticed a common theme. People post stories/pics etc about how they drove through snow/rain or whatever. But apparently, everything is a 'storm'. A guy posts a pic with his car with 1cm of snow on it and it's always "Just drove through a snowstorm". Is this normal ? if it rains you just default to calling it a rainstorm ?

It depends a lot on the person and the area, truthfully. In the North or Midwest an inch of show would be no big deal unless it came down in less than half an hour. Here in the South an inch of snow would shut everything down for a day or three and would be regarded as a winter storm. A gentle rain is just that. whereas a heavy downpour could be called a rainstorm by some. Toss in some thunder and lightening and you have a thunderstorm.
