How do those legs work?

I think these arachnids (harvestmen, not spiders) are amazing - how does they manage to move with such long, thin legs? That brick ia about 65mm high and some its legs are nearly that long. According to Wiki, it's really different from a spider - no venom or silk glands, one pair of eyes that look sideways, a merged main body instead of one in two parts, and legs that continue to twitch after being detached.
