Funnily enough, Kraftwerk are playing at the Sydney Opera House on Friday...

I set an 8AM alarm on my phone (S3) just after midnight on the night before daylight savings kicked in. Not only did the alarm go off as planned, but ICS was even smart enough, when setting the alarm, to indicate that it was set for '6 hours and 54 minutes from now', correctly accounting for the missing hour.
I have a photo of a daddy long legs devouring a big female redback on the ceiling of my house (the females are the big black ones with the red bits, the males are boring brown)
My sister's ex fiancée was pretty much immune to redback bites, having been bitten around 20 times. He used to just walk up and squish them with his finger. He wasn't that smart though, one of the reason's he's my sisters ex fiancée, not her current husband.
As for funnel webs, living in Sydney I've come across them occasionally, one (angry male) decided to come strolling in to the house and stand on the kitchen floor, right in front of the cupboard with the flyspray in it. Cue much stretching to retrieve said flyspray with approaching the spider. Half a can of the stuff and it still took 30 minutes for the thing to look anything other than annoyed.
Indeed similar experience for me. Lights off, headphones on, girlfriend (now wife) sneaks in to room and brushes gently on the back of my neck at some appropriately spooky moment.
I used to schedule my PC upgrades on id games releases. Built new PC's for Doom 2, Quake2, Quake 3 and Doom 3. Didn't bother for Quake 4, which is the last id game I bought...
