seriously though, last summer my place was infested with funnel web spiders, good times!
well not quite infested but i caught about 10 of the nasty looking buggers
You must be a southerner,up here in Qld we have the redback spider,you just don't go picking up old bit's of tin and alike,anything really dry,give you a nasty bite,you don't hear of many people dying from it though,they tend to get quite sick.
You can have the funnel web at least we can spot a redback easily.

There have been NO recorded deaths due to redback bites. Those fuckers don't leave any witnesses!

On top of the flora and fauna killing you. Our local electricity is between 220 and 240 ish volts.
(it's meant to be 240 volts)
Not a measly 110 volts!
It'll kill ya in a much more fun way!
It's twice the voltage (Which will do fuck all to you) at half the amperage (Which will do fuck nothing to you) at 50Hz... but essentially mains will kill you everywhere, one will char you (Higher amperage) the other might smoke you.

You haven't lived if you did not receive a 380V 3 phase shock yet.
Best try it with dry hands, with the tips of your fingers only. Make sure that you get the full experience by touching the bus across two of the three phases, and not take the wimpy back door of only 220V by using neutral...
Seriously... DO NOT try this ANYWHERE!
If you survive, you will feel seriously kicked up and weak for about two days
If you want to die, guaranteed, use 300V DC. If you survive the jolt, you can die from suffocation in two to three days, when your current batch of red blood cells naturally expires.
Main power kill Not because of the voltage or the current, but because of the Power. Power (P) = Voltage (V) x Current (A). So if you have any of the two in abundance, you might find yourself being cooked. Higher voltages do have a way to get into your body a bit easier though...
