Too little too late, but still satisfying. Murdering bastard. He is responsible as a member of the army for a lot more than 1,700 deaths from that time.

On that note, this. Two more murdering bastards that have at least been found liable for their crimes.

I was going to post a picture, but I decided I didn't want to see the results of a google on "giant killer spider" this early in the morning.

GIS probably just spits out a map of Aus anyhow.

Actually, I think I have one somewhere.

(Edit.. Yep)

Believe me, I was the biggest spider coward ever back home!

Been here in Brissie 4.5 years now and not as bad as I used to be. Think I've got so used to them here that I don't notice anymore. (until one wanders into the house that is ).

I'm terrified of em. Way too many legs and no obvious "front end". Except for the ones with the huge fangs of course.

The baby killing dingoes are in the wrong spot. That map has them in Albany, but really the killer dingoes are a bit farther north. Somewhere up around the second N in nothing.
