    Oh yeah, I am the epitomy of "party animal".
    I spent 20 hours (not including breaks) of my weekend potting 2000 B. emilia and B. smithi slings.
    (and I still have about 500 to go)
    I guess this is the best answer I have for the "what kind of tarantula keeper are you" thread.

    Some pix, before and after.

    Damn dude. Hope you get paid overtime! If for some reason all the slings are dead from some mysterious outbreak of some unknown T virus, you could start a jenga championship {D :D

    Do you mean slings that are a cross between B.smithi and B.emilia?

    Actually OCSC (Open Cricket Squirt Close).
    Squirting before cricket can have one of two (sometimes both) reactions:

    Tarantula freaks and takes off like Ted Kennedy after a car accident.
