It can do stuff with venom, its just that most human skin is too thick/tough for their fangs to bite through. Soft flesh like the tongue can be bitten I believe.

Moral of the story, don't eat spiders.

Makes sense, I guess it might be able to bite other organisms, since I don't think spiders are above us on the food chain (I hope)

we also emphasize things differently and use a play on words differently, the trick is to decipher what a person actually means from what they said, using specific context usually prevents confusion, for example: you say "spiders are the ****" and posted a picture of a platter with a few baked tarantulas(spiders) on it people will assume you mean to eat, when you post a pic of a person showing an expression it makes it look like you were saying they were awesome or cool or neat, saying "spiders are the ****" can also mean that the **** is in fact made of spiders, which explains my joke, i was using a tricky play on words, i followed it up with a gif explaining what i meant and both of us got confused.

You all seem fairly interested in the spiders that we get around the house here in Australia, so I'll post a few pictures of the types of spiders I have encountered. I'll start with the mouse spider (about the size of the palm of your hand).

This is the last one that I'll post, it's a bird eating spider. They're quite common where I live and like to stay up in the trees or in the shrubbery mainly, but they come inside and bother people sometimes. My mate had one in his shirt the other day when he put it on in the morning and got a nasty bite. (About the size of your hand, can grow bigger)

Real interesting stuff man. I worked at my Zoo's Insecatarium as a volunteer and then employee for about 4 years now, so I obviously love bugs and arachnids.

We used to have some Golden Orb Spider at our Insectarium until last Spring, and I always thought they were real cool.

This one is a redback spider and is a very well known icon for Australia. They are related to the black widow as some of you will probably notice, except that they have that distinctive red mark on their back. They are very venomous and are a constant worry for parents as they love living in places that aussie kids like to put their fingers, like under flower pot rims and in garden shed doors.

Funnel web spiders are an iconic spider for Australians, and are named after the big funnels of webs they make in the ground as a trap for nearby prey. They come indoors sometimes and are a pest due to their extremely venomous stings. Luckily I have only ever had one indoors once, and it was near a door where I could sweep it out.

The Huntsman spider. These little buggers are extremely common, and some households are literally infested with them! But they're okay in moderation, you'd go crazy trying to get them all out of your house in spider season so a lot of us just leave them be becuase they're non-venomous and eat all of the bugs that come inside :). (Note, this isn't the best picture but I thought a lot of you would recognise it from the viral video that this is a screenshot from).

This is a Golden orb spider, we get thousands of them living in giant colonys with webs that span vast distances of rainforest (like the spiders in the harry potter movie). I am pretty sure we only get them where I live (far north Queensland) up in the rainforest. There's a baby one living in my kitchen at the moment on a flower pot. I'll just leave him there until he gets too big, then I'll relocate him.

They are lying in wait, gathering in number and waiting, just waiting for you to let your guard down. Then when you least expect it, millions of spiders will pour out of your walls consuming all in their path. You? you will most likely be wrapped in layers upon layers of spider silk where they will slowly feast on your liquefied innards for days. Have a good day.
