I love how they're "well we have to talk about the weather we have to talk about the weather!" Yeah, no you don`t. Wanna know the weather? Go outside. Why does news devote soooo much time to the freaking weather!?

Can't say I`d do it any differently, that was good. Almost as good as dropping someone in a pit with a snake and watching him freak like a cat dropped in cold water. Just don`t do it to someone with a heart problem and they`ll get over it in time. I`d be pissed at first but would laugh about it later, it`d be a story to tell the grandkids one day.

Brazilian white-knee tarantula (Acanthoscurria geniculata) - nice specimen actually. The dude was right, they do 'shoot` hairs at you (flick) but they tend to be quite timid. Grow AMAZINGLY fast if you feed them well too - rivals the salmon pint tarantula for that.
In my opinion he`s being a bit of a d!ck though waving it around on his arm like that - it`s a big spider and the weight of the abdomen alone is probably enough to dislodge the spider, making it fall and probably killing it.
(although having said that, that was the species in last years? Nature paper that `supposedly` produced silk from their feet- later disputed/reaffirmed/ disputed with several other papers)

Its sort of funny to tease someone with their fears for a couple of seconds but this dude is pushing it for the entire video. He doesn't really seem to care that he is annoying and no one likes him. In fact, it appears to fuel him further in ruining the morning news.
