A co worker and i were discussing tarantulas when he began to tell me this story(this guy believes that he is some sort of genius, no joke)

His story: " when i was around 13 years old i was staying the night with my cousin who had goliath rose hair spider. It was always getting out of its cage and that night it did. I was sleeping on the floor and rolled over and felt a pin prick on my back. I stood up and said get the spider of im going to smash it. I probably could have died if the poison glands hadn't be removed."
My response: " wow youre really lucky!"
He continued: "yeah those rose hairs are pretty poisonous."

!?!?!?!? Just thought id share this with you guys. Have a great day and thanks for reading!

I just wonder where people like this even get their information... clearly not from a credible source.

I don't break the rules of Arachnoboards lightly, but since I wrote them and own the site, I'm giving myself a one time pass as this is too good of an opportunity not to post this. ;) Content of this nature is not appropriate for the site, anyone else breaking our rules will get slapped :D

I'd straight up tell him he is wrong. That's like flat Earth stuff.
So...the only problem with that, is he works with the guy. Have you ever known someone like that, AND have continued interaction be necessary for whatever reason? They will make it their duty in life to convince you. Until you "see the light," you'll be deluged with a litany of unsourced "infographics" (should they, god forbid, have your number), & mispronounced words bombarding you at every opportunity with conviction & impassioned spittle. Engaging them in any way other than a "neat" & a change of subject will kill more brain cells than all of those parties in college combined...
