Except not. First off, not spiders. Second off, they CAN bite through skin. Finally, not at all poisonous. Source: Mythbusters. Look it up, kids.

While many consider The Blair Witch Project to be the first (or, at least, the most influential) found-footage film, this 1980 release, Cannibal Holocaust, precedes it by 19 years. This film concerns a group of film-makers who seen are brutally slain while attempting to film a documentary about cannibal tribes in the Amazon rainforest. The film is so realistic that the director was brought to court for the deaths of local Columbian actors who died on-screen. It wasn't until the actors appeared in court that the director was acquitted of first-degree murder.

While Broadway ticket prices have risen to astronomical levels in the past few years, if you're savvy, theater-going can certainly be affordable. How? Well, many theaters have adopted Student and General rush policies. All you have to do is go to the box office on the day of shows (Check the show's/theatre's website to see what time it opens so that you can get there early and increase your chances) and ask for rush tickets. Now, not all shows will have them: some shows are already sold out, some do "lottery", still others simply do not offer them. However, chances are that, if you're there early enough, you can get tickets for (mostly) any show (barring the REALLY popular ones - Wicked, Book of Mormon, Pippin. However, for those, you can always try the "lottery"! Not as likely, but definitely worth a shot. I had friends win BoM tickets first try.) For more info, check out the above website. It will outline whether a show has rush tickets, and how much they cost. Happy hunting!
