    Harmless and gormless little feckers.the noise bugs me ( pun intended ) but i just catch them and chuck them out the window.

    They're probably the least scariest insects ever. Its ages since ive seen one, i think ill call this one Al and see how he ends up after bashin himself off my sitting room wall for 10 hours :rolleyes:

    I heard they're Satan's favourite insects. Fact.

    My daddy has long legs as well. He's an excellent 100m hurdler. He won gold in the Olympics and in my heart.

    I hate them!

    I don't care if there's a spider on my desk, wall or whatever. A fly i can live with, but this amalgamation of the two just really gets to me. I absolutely hate them. They scare the shit out of me, too. Nothing worse than typing away and getting this uncoordinated mess of an insect belting into your face, monitor and keyboard before trying to escape and further hitting into things. Why don't they just do themselves a favor and stay still in the corner like a normal insect.

    They annoy me when they start all like flying around me touching off me 'nd stuff.
    Then it's an epic battle to the death using the nearest shoe I can find.

    Along came a Spider out on the lash

    When I shower daddy Long legs watch me. It is most disconcerting.

    Plus picking up a daddy long legs makes me shudder.

    I'm sure this is not down to where i'm from BUT we used to pull their legs off and watch them wiggle on thier own :o

    Its the wiggly fúckers like maggots that freak me out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,111 ✭✭✭Jesus Juice


    Apparently they have really poisonus venom but have no way of using it!lol!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,117 ✭✭✭ironictoaster


    I hate the little bastards. Last Summer I left the window all day only to see 15 crane flys in my room. I got the oul hoover out, great fun :)

    That was on myth busters, but what americans call daddy long legs and what we call daddy long legs are different. Their version is a spider where ours is a love child between a spider and a fly who spent his childhood as a tequila maggot


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,478 ✭✭✭magick


    oh just wait till Auguest when all those lovely hobo spiders come into yer houses! :eek:

    Yeah but that crap about them being really being the most poisonous but just not being able to use it is a load of crap.

    I hate it when somebody says that and actually believes it. Makes me want to slap them on the side of the head.

    I'm surprised it took until the second page for this to be written. This is a myth, there is no evidence that they are venomous to humans.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,073 ✭✭✭sam34


    i hate the little bastards. the noise they make drives me mad. death to them all, i say!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,750 ✭✭✭liah


    Weird. When I hear "daddy long legs" I don't think crane fly, I think of this. Interesting. Must be different over here. What do you call those yokes, then? Just regular spiders...? Do you even get them in Ireland or are they a north american thing?

    I didn't know it was an actual myth.
    I thought it was from that joke Ricky Gervais told at one of his shows...:confused:
