That is cool. What kind of spiders are those?

I wonder if they'll all die now that they're no longer clumped together against the cold.

Look like daddy longlegs, but I've never seen them act anything like that.

Arachnids are cold-blooded, I don't think huddling helps them keep warm.

For a second, I thought it might be my ex-wife's pubic hair.

Then he poked it with the stick, and I was certain it was.

The real nightmare comes when people google Nightmare Fuel and start reading TVTropes.

Poor little buggers. They're harmless to us, and eat our enemies. Leave them alone.
Apparently they cluster together in the Fall. I couldn't find out why.

right, I never thought about whether they're cold or warm blooded.  I did a little digging and as it turns out that while daddy longlegs are arachnids, they're not spiders.  According to wikipedia, they clump together "likely as a strategy against climatic odds, but also against predators, combining the effect of scent secretions, and reducing the probability of any particular individual of being eaten."

/the more you know, and all that
