More times than not, scientists waste their time with meaningless reaserch that also wastes government grants, this study DEFINITLY doesn't fall into that catagory.
Researchers at the Medical  College of Georgia have found that the venom of a spider native to Cental and South America  could be mother nature's answer to Viagra.  This gives a whole new meaning to spidey sense.

Researchers found that venom from a phoneutria nigriventer, sometimes called Brazilian wandering spiders or banana spiders, could give a person a four hour erection and could possibly cure some of the worst cases of impotence – cases not even Viagra could adequately treat.

So what if the little spider's venom will also incapacitate a person’s muscle control, cause severe pain and trigger breathing problems. In some cases – if left untreated – it could lead to death.  Those are all worth while side effects, right?

They should also put on the warnings that if erection lasts longer that four hours call Spider Man.
