A 21-year-old Australian man who will, understandably, only give his first name, Jordan, has been bitten by a spider on his penis ... twice. Both times, the tradesman was using a portable toilet at a building site when he was attacked by spiders hiding under the rim; the most recent incident happened in Sydney on Tuesday, five months after the first time. "I'm the most unlucky guy in the country at the moment," he tells the BBC, noting that when he felt that familiar sting, "I was like, 'I can't believe it's happened again.'" He admits he "didn't really want" to use a portable toilet again after the first bite, but on Tuesday, the toilets had just been cleaned, he checked under both seats, and he "thought it was my opportunity." He was wrong. He's since been released from the hospital. (More strange stuff stories.)
