Awww, wookit the nightmare fuel! Who's a demon from hell? Whoooooo's a demon from hell?
That's a male brown recluse if my 6th grade science class education still serves me. We can tell sex by the large palps--the large 'boxing gloves' next to the fangs and mouth.

Most disturbing is that it's crawling on a pair of jeans and a shoe... JUST LIKE IT WILL BEFORE BITING YOU AND GIVING YOU A GIANT NECROTIC HOLE IN YOUR FOOT.
And I love the detail that it's crawling on the inside surface of that denim. Is that the butt-seam he's walking over? Why it just might be!

aww, now I feel bad. Funny thing is, I've even taken a class in Medical Entomology, and I completely forgot that as you say, they generally avoid biting people. That's why a lot of people get bitten on their feet or whatnot when the spiders get trapped and not just randomly.
No need for feeling bad. Next time you see one, just give him a little hug.
In the span of time between my first response and this one, I totally crushed a Hobo spider in my kitchen. Then I watched this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gVEAhFBeHs
I'm your boat now.
Immediately I thought of this one installment of "Hark, A Vagrant" imagining Peter Parker as "Brown Recluse Spider-man"
It's possible to live in a place INFESTED with brown recluses and not know it. The "recluse" in their name ain't for shits. Now, the Hobo Spider (aka Aggressive Brown Spider) is a different story.
somewhat interesting, from wiki: ...This laboratory study has led to the proposal that in some parts of the U.S. nearly all bites attributed to the brown recluse spider are in reality the hobo spider's bite.
