Can a spider crawl up the toilet?

So i usually just kill spiders and flush them down the toilet to make sure they are gone but today was a different story... There was this huge fat spider that was crazy fast. I freaked out! It was impossible to try and kill it so i just grabbed the nearest cup(luckily i had my glass of water that i had just finished next to me) and i trapped it. I threw it in the toilet but it was going all crazy and fast so i hurried and flushed twice to make sure because it was still alive. Its like he was indestructible. Is there any chance it can crawl back up the toilet? Im freaked out and scared to even pee. Yes this is a serious question.

I second the bkeach^ but I highly doubt it. Dude's dead now. I don't know of any spiders that can hold their breath very long.

I don't think so flush it a few more times just in case.

Well, if they can crawl up a water spout why not a toilet?

Actually, some spiders can "hold their breath" for a very long time.  See, they breathe through their skin on the underside of their abdomen, and some species have a bunch of hair all over.  The hair traps air against their skin and allows them to breathe underwater.
