Fun fact: Daddy Long Legs can bite you.

Fun fact #2: They're also deadlt, but they can't pierc your skin. In other words, they can't bite you. lol

It has been proven though testing that they can bite you and it can pierce your skin. The idea that they can't is a false myth.

They are able to bite you, but most of the time they simply don't. Their venom may not be poisonous at all either. There has been no research (aside from a test by Mythbusters which busted the myth) that suggests that they are "the most poisonous spider".

It's also a myth that's been around for a while and is quite widespread.

Here's an interesting fact: one spider's venom that may be deadly to a human would actually be extremely mild to another animal such as a dog. Conversely, an arachnid that is relatively harmless to people could kill dogs. :o

But it depends on the particular spider of course.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Different immune systems make this less interesting...

That's the problem with determining which venom is the most "lethal". It depends on the spider, the venom itself (potency) and the animals it affects. Most studies are specific to one animal.
