A couple of weeks ago, three brothers in Bolivia were sent to the hospital after they each were bitten by a venomous black widow spider.

And you might be thinking, "That's quite the coincidental accident.  Three brothers, EACH, getting bit by a black widow."  Well, it wasn't coincidental, and it wasn't an accident.  No, the brothers allowed the spider to bite them, because they thought it would help them turn into Spider-Man.

While most humans won't die from a black widow bite, the venom can be especially lethal to small children, the elderly, and the sick.  And black widows usually only bite in self-defense, according to NatGeo.
