Fact of the Day: Spider Spin

The word spider is derived from the Old English spinnan which is realted to the modern word spin


  1. I kinda like spiders. When I find one in my apartment, I take him outside.

  2. Ah, that is interesting! In German a spider is called "Spinne"!


  3. Interesting - here in Australia we have deadly spiders so spider
    catching is very dangerous. Some species can kill within 1/2 hour.
    So if any reader comes here - avoid spiders just like sharks, feral pigs,
    feral water buffaloes, crocodiles and our lovely venomous snakes!

  4. A good name for them since they are great spinners.

  5. they're so fast in spinning their webs, it takes them literally nanoseconds to web it

  6. I admire spiders and appreciate that they eat many of the bugs that would torment me. But I don't want them on me or interacting with me.
