    Hopefully the person is loaded down with debt already and can go bankrupt in a big way.

    I drove my friend to the ER after his finger swelled up to the size of a giant sausage after a spider bite and he was out of there pretty quick and they charged him $3,800.

    Moral of the story - scenery is overrated.

    It's so fucking ridiculous.

    How much does it cost to get a snake wrangler to milk a snake? Then make that stuff into antivenom.

    You know it isn't anywhere approaching that bullshit number.
