Spider bite causes erections

Scott Adams noted this fascinating story about the Brazilian wandering spider whose bites cause uncontrolled erections:

"The erection is a side effect that everybody who gets stung by this spider will experience along with the pain and discomfort"

I remember the first time I heard the TV commercial “If you have an erection lasting for more than four hours, see your doctor”, thinking that it was a joke.

I wonder how many five year-olds hear this on TV and ask Mom:

“Mommy, what’s an erection”?
