woman who went to China's Changsha Central Hospital complaining of itching in the left side of her head was told by doctors that the source of irritation was a spider that had been living inside her ear canal for five days.

So spiders eat insects, flies and such.

Let me ask you. If I simplify the past decade in my mind it seems the whole of the financial collapse developed as the 'too-big-to-fail' banks engaged in the gambling cover with the derivitives debaucle came to life as the AIG derivitives were called upon to actualize from notional values as counterparties made claims on the derivitive agreements. AIG could not perform on their agreements and the dominoes fell, only stopping with the injection of 600 billion to Goldman, AIG, and heaven knows who else.
Anyway, I hope the CLL is in remission or better cured. Good luck to you.
At least it'll keep the cockroaches out of her ear.
