200 meter long spider web found in Texas

200 meter long spider web found in Texas

This is a cool story that Steve posted on Digg so I had to post here too. I like spiders for killing flies and squeeters and also for giving Peter Parker his powers and all that but this story has me more than a little creeped out.
Steve added “yeah, social spiders. what if they get really organised…”

This is just too much like the movie Arachnobia… I wonder if social spiders have subversive sub cultures or if younger spiders rebel and web-grafitti by up or doing tight donuts circle instead of across the patterns like the other spiders.
