1st - Never leave cold scrambled eggs in a non-ptfe pan. We suspect this is what the Romans used for all the buildings that are still standing.
2nd - Don't burn black powder on a teaspoon in your kitchen sink, the stain never comes off the teaspoon.
3rd - wikipedia has this to say of the huntsman spider:
Huntsman spider is a common name given to the family Sparassidae (formerly Heteropodidae). They are also known as the giant crab spiders, due to their appearance; larger specimens of these spiders are also sometimes referred to as wood spiders, due to their preference for inhabiting woody places (forest, mine shafts, woodpiles).
These eight-eyed spiders are found in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, Florida, and Hawaii, and possibly in many other tropical and semi-tropical regions. They can be found as far north as England, Sweden and Wales.
look it up if you're interested in the rest :-)
