Daddy Long Legs

You may have heard that these are the most poisonous spiders ever, but they are unable to bite humans, so no one's died from their poison.

This is totally false and is an urban myth. A daddy long legs, of the Opiliones order, isn't poisonous at all. It's not even a spider since spiders are in the order Araneae.
