it's interesting that Daddy Longlegs aren't spiders, even though they both look the same.

...i wonder what would happen if i cut all the legs of a daddy longlegs???

...Nothing is impossible, even the word says I'M POSSIBLE...

http://spiders.ucr.edu/daddylonglegs.html Explains pretty much everything... Crane Flies aren't even Daddy Long Legs by any description apart from in the UK. They are winged insects, not even 8 legged! Plus daddy long legs donít look like spiders unless you are speciest! :D I have an irrational fear of spiders, im not scared by any other creepy crawlies except scorpions! Has to have eight legs and a segmented body for me to jump up on a chair ;) If big hairy spiders could fly I would be screwed!

I remember in primary school we would gather up all the crane flies from the playing field and release them all under some outside steps, a massive cloud of them would stay there for hours just bumping in to each other :)

wOw the world spins?

IVE JUST GOT TO KNOW IS IT GUINESS OR MURPHYS ?
THERE ARE A COUPLE OF VILLAGES IN CHILE THAT DONT HAVE ONE, BUT THAT COULD BE DUE TO THE SPARSE POPULATION,LARGE TOWNS AND CITIES HAVE A GREAT NUMBER OF THEM, SO YES POPULATION DENSITY COULD BE THE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR, OR THE LACK OF BIKES. ;)

RE-HAB IS FOR QUITTERS.
