Though I'd rather have a Brown Recluse bite me than a Black Widow. While it's true that healthy adults usually don't die from Black Widow venom, it really really fucking sucks for what seems like eternity. Better to get the bite cut out and pack that bitch with some gauze. Never again will I vomit fire. Never again.
No-one is saying those pictures are fake, however, that does not make their venom the equal of rattle snake and black widow combined...which is what you stated. You also stated that they (brown recluse) are not aggressive, which is true in the case that they will not actively seek you out to bite you. While they will not hunt you, they will bite and run if you get anywhere near them, then you can add your own pics to those already abundant on the web. Pun intended.
There more likely to even run first instead of bite. Theres tons of them down at this wood warehouse i used to go to. I've been bit plenty of times, and there really isn't much to worry about it you get them taken care of. Then again i was told once that the venom does effect people differently, kind of like bee stings. Some people have different reactions to the venom.
They truly do not bite often. The only times they ever bite is when someone physically touches them (usually accidentally) they try to stay far away from humans. Now banana spiders those little bastards are aggressive and very deadly. I learned that through animal planet.. Not the Internet
I don't blame you. Spiders are terrifying.
