    Hardware/Serttings in beginning, game at 19:30.

    Didn't expect I'd ever get this one, plugged it in determined to try my hardest-pretty sure I can get the 900k on it now, soon as I get that beer helmet I was talking about.
    :)
    Blew the game because frankly I didn't expect to go on this long, had no idea what the scores were I was trying to "beat", except 30k for the patch(and even there I wasn't sure if it was 35k...).
    Patches in batches, woo!!!
    Tried an impromptu Tarantula appearance at the end, she wasn't cooperating, seemed a little ornery so I let her be...wanted to reinforce that I'm a spider lover, not a Spider Fighter, but you know, if something is trying to shoot you, you gotta try to shoot it back...
    :)
    Thanks Everyone!!!

    Here's the T I was trying to show off-is a G. pulchra, "Brazilian Black". Gets huge, dinner-plate sized, is solid deep black, and is purported to be the pussycat of all the Tarantulas, a super friendly, gentle species.
    :)
    And ignorantly expensive, but I got mine as a tiny, tiny baby for cheap.



    Name is "23"-that's not a generic "number name", was my Grandpas cb radio handle in the 80's, lol, and is a long story.

    Haha!

    There is very much something scientific behind what you said-They(G. pulchra)are known to grow very slowly, and don't fully "black out" until mature.
    Again, a "prize" spider, but when I first got it, it was thumbnail size, and looked like a B. albo(cheap spider, but one of the BEST), tawny brown, "ugly", I thought I had gotten ripped off, but it's slowly but surely becoming all black.

    I RARELY handle them, but you can tell from the vid how inordinantly cooperative this one is.

    And...
    As I was reading my previous reply, I got the joke.
    It flew right over my head there for a sec.
    Patches...
    :P
