This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
From LiveLeak.com: This guy has the misfortune of having to catch one very big, fast, and ugly spider. The Huntsman spider happens to be one of the largest species of spider in the world, with a leg-span of up to 12 inches. That said, we found the determination of both man and spider in this video to be as compelling as a Spielberg film.
INSIDER'S Note: Some language contained in this video is NSFW! As you might imagine, in his attempt to capture this massive spider, the man in the video uses some words that are not safe for work or young ears. Parental caution advised.
