A common urban legend passed around via email is that that average person will swallow 8 Spiders while sleeping during their lifetime.

This is true. It isa "statistic" made up for the sole purpose of being passed around on the internet to gross people out. Although it is disgusting many need spiders to survive.

See the related links section for the Snopes article about it.
