Hindu is the cricket of religions. You can observe it for years, you can have enthusiasts try to explain it to you, and it's still baffling. - Warren

If I were in the mood to be pedantic, I'd point out that the "daddy longlegs" isn't a spider, it's a different kind of arachnid also known as a harvestman. (Although thanks to some confusion, some people refer to "cellar spiders" as "daddy longlegs", and some arachnologists are attempting to accommodate while clarifying by referring to the cellar spiders as "daddy longlegs spiders", but not "daddy longlegs".)

Also, Daddy Longlegs is a common name, not one created by scientists. If we were being pedantic.

True, although in some groups scientists do standardize the common names, and do end up creating and assigning common names, if we were being pedantic.

So I'd heard the "daddy longlegs aren't really spiders" thing before but not that there was also an actual spider people called that, and I just looked at pictures, and I've definitely only ever used the term to refer to cellar spiders, not harvestmen (-mans?). I mean, "definitely," who knows, but like, I'm pretty sure I've never seen a harvestman.

Also kind of ready for death after looking at so many arachnid pics.

Spiders have two body regions, harvestmen only have one (no head distinguishable from the rest of the body).

I'm guilty of calling both daddy longlegs for as long as I can remember.

no, it's just laziness.

like, i could show someone how not to fuck this up in maybe 45 minutes. with a few days of playing around you'd have compression free dad/white people jokes.
