Default Daddy Longlegs or Granddaddy Longlegs

Just realized tonight that there are cultural differences in the name of this thing. Weird.

Three fun facts too:
1. The fact that they're the most poisonous spider but their teeth are too small to bite you is a MYTH. They don't even have vemon sacs.
2. They AREN'T spiders. They are arachnids, which is the Class of insect spiders are in. But after that they split off.
3. Nickname before (grand) daddy longlegs? Harvestmen. Which is a SUPER BADA** name for a bug. I'm definitely calling them that from now on.

There are actually 3 bugs that people call "daddy long-logs". One is an insect, another is an arachnid and the third one (the one I grew up with) actually is a spider.
