    Apparently they have really strong venom/posion, but are unable to pierce human skin so they are harmless to us...

    Probably just another load of bollocks though

    Or if you are strangely into them in a slightly pervo way like this guy :
    http://www.acsu.buffalo.edu/~insrisg/nature/nw02/1007harvestmen.htm

    But if you can't assed to read teh whole thing....

    "harvestmen, despite their eight legs, are not spiders; they are more closely related to ticks and mites. Three of their differences from spiders: their two eyes versus the spiders' six or eight; their waistless body ã head, thorax and abdomen a single unit ã and their lack of poison. An old wives tale has it that the daddy longlegs is extremely poisonous but that we are safe because it has not the power in its jaws to bite through our skin. They are not poisonous.
