    Scorpion venom is pretty mild it would hurt like a bitch though. I would have probably captured it in a glass and taken it outside. I have an affinity for little "stingy" bugs though, I am constantly saving some wayward wasp that got inside the house when my wife and kid tell me to squash them. I was catching one the other day and it stung my finger.... MAN did that finger itch.. But it was ok and I managed to get the little bugger outside safely. I am weird like that. Someday I intend to do some beekeeping too, I LOVE them

    If I'm crazy for loving bees and shit then I'm ok with that. I don't drink smoke or do drugs so I think overall I'm not "Too" crazy ;)
    Besides.... a bit of "crazy" is good right? Right? RIGHT? LOLOL

    Spray a sting with original Windex. The ammonia will knock it right out.

    Isn't there still leftover radioactivity from the a-bomb testing back in the 40s out there somewhere?

    Trinity Site: location of the first atomic bomb detonation/test. Scientists didn't know if it would work or not, or if it might even split the world.

    BUT THEY HAD TO KNOW :laugh2:

    Trinity Site is around Alamogordo/Tularosa area (a bit past White Sands), so yes, you are indeed correct. There are people living in the area.

    Trivia :wtf:: the ground was moist with morning dew when the a-bomb was detonated. The Heat turned that sand into a glassy stone type of substance that is still radioactive. It's called Trinitite, and it's illegal to remove it when Trinity Site is opened to the public.

    Never been there, nor do I plan on going.

    I want to move to the South Carolina coast (well, in 3-5 years). The only problem is I am sure they have sh*t like scorpions, spiders and snakes.

    Very interesting. Thanks. Could probably make some cool picks out of Trinitite.

    Nah, move out to NM. We don't have hurricanes. We have BEAUTIFUL scenery, and lots of sunshine (WE were supposed to be "The Sunshine State" but Florida stole that moniker from us :hyper:)

    Besides, we'd be neighbors:cheers2: (root beer for me).

    Sheesh, I still need to meet up with Mudface.

    And durable ;) Only 2 problems: 1)it's radioactive and 2)it's illegal to remove.

    Although people still try to take it out. In high school, one of my classmates brought some in to the class (early 80s) and was passing it around. I said "keep that stuff away from me" so she started chasing me around the room

    I'm going to make necklaces out of it. I'll make a fortune as everyone will want to give them to the future and current exwives...
