It's neat how they bunch up so much they actually drip from the ceiling and walls.

But daddy long-legs aren't spiders. -1 star.
The only time I've ever seen real spiders like this is right when they hatch, and they're so tiny you barely notice them unless they start parachuting down onto your monitor from the ceiling.

I've updated tags in deference to your technically correct comment.

I've heard that before, but they ARE arachnids, right? Doesn't that make them spiders? I mean, tarantulas don't make webs either, but they're still spiders.. is the inability to produce silk enough? I'm just curious. I sucked at biology.

Scorpions are also classified as arachnids. Would you say they're the same as spiders? If you're just going by "has 8 legs", you'd also put ticks in the same group (and you'd be wrong). Whip scorpions and camel spiders each belong to their own arachnid orders, separate from their namesakes.

Also, despite social and morphological similarities, termites are the only colonial insects that don't belong to the same order as all other colonial insects (Hymenoptera, go ahead and giggle), like ants and bees, and instead have their own unique order (Isoptera).

Getting back to the subject at hand, "Daddy longlegs" typically refers to the the distinct arachnid order Opiliones, BUT it can also refer to a certain family of actual spiders based on similar body types.

Phylum Arthropoda is as nightmarish in its organization as in its contents.

Oops, quick fact check: ticks and mites are in fact part of class Arachnida, specifically subclass Acari. My bad, it's late and I've been out of biology class for years myself.

Technically correct is the best kind of correct.
