A daddy long legs spider just lowered itself right in front of my face a few minutes ago and I got the **** scared out of me. Now, I know daddy long legs spiders can't possible harm humans, but just the fact that it was hanging an inch away from my face was scary enough. D:

    Fun fact: If it were big enough and its mouth could bite you, that could kill you. They have enough poison in their fangs to bring down an adult male human with no problems.

    Not a fun fact: Ewwww, a spider! D=

    Seriously, all you gotta do is grab one of its legs and throw it out the window. I hate bugs and I can still do that.

    Good job! I would have done the same thing. There was no way I was going to touch it with my hands with a paper towel. Ewww...I have to make sure it is dead first then I can grab it with a paper towel.

    "Here, the myth is incorrect at least in making claims that have no basis in known facts. There is no reference to any pholcid spider biting a human and causing any detrimental reaction. If these spiders were indeed deadly poisonous but couldn't bite humans, then the only way we would know that they are poisonous is by milking them and injecting the venom into humans. For a variety of reasons including Amnesty International and a humanitarian code of ethics, this research has never been done. Furthermore, there are no toxicological studies testing the lethality of pholcid venom on any mammalian system (this is usually done with mice). Therefore, no information is available on the likely toxic effects of their venom in humans, so the part of the myth about their being especially poisonous is just that: a myth. There is no scientific basis for the supposition that they are deadly poisonous and there is no reason to assume that it is true."

    I already countered that (less effectively but more impressively) on SL's own blog. At least check your facts before passing them off as such.
