GERMAN MAN’S REAL LIFE SPIDER-MAN WEB-SHOOTER IS A WRIST-MOUNTED LASER-GUIDED HARPOON GUN
One of the coolest things about Spider-Man is unquestionably his web-shooters, the devices that allow him to swing around the city to fight crime without having to worry about all the questionable anatomy that would be brought up if he produced webs the same way as actual spiders. They’re one of his trademarks, to the point where the new The Amazing Spider-Man series of films has reverted back to the idea of mechanical ones, replacing the previous movies’ “organic” web-shooters, and they’re the kind of thing that it would be really cool to own in real life.
And if you happen to be Patrick Priebe, you actually do. In honor of the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Priebe has constructed a homemade version of Spidey’s webshooter that can launch fishing line out of a wrist-mounted coil and retract it, triggered by the same motion that Spidey uses in the comics. Also, there is a brass-tipped harpoon pointed directly at his palm that is launched out with a surprising amount of force. That seems like a good idea, right?
Why does everyone say “house-wife” or “house-husband” when “House-spouse” is not only gender neutral, but also RHYMES?
the prof asks the important questions.
Wait, spouse rhymes with house? I always pronounced it ‘spooze’ in my head /o\ WHY IS YOUR LANGUAGE SO WEIRD!!!
Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.
Anonymous asked: Why Frank Langella? Sure hes good but has it not been thoroughly proven that Michael McDonald truely has the voice of an angel? And as a followup: Is there any credence to the rumors that Vladimir Putin was in fact, originally engineered in a secret KGB-run super soldier program started in order to create a Soviet (& thereby "evil" or "Anti-") Phil Collins?
Man you can’t spell LANGELLA without ANGEL, because he is one come from heaven. Duh. Michael McDonald’s voice is too smooth, or “sinister” to be considered angelic by my religious standard. The Putin thing, that’s 100% true, he was developed using a state-seized Anthony Yerkovich’s slush fund that was considered fuck around money by a KGB sub-set that was never reported to their higher ups. Yerkovich believed that the free world was doomed to fail, and kept all his money from television in the Soviet black market waiting for the eventual fall of capitalism (kind of like reverse war profiteering). Yerkovich, fewer people know, was always a RAND corporation cover identity that was inhabited by an agent who never broke cover, and once his Miami Vice money had funded the Anti-Collins initiative (as well as the less successful Peter Gabriel cloning trials), they took him out. Collins has coyly made reference to these events in the song “I Don’t Care Anymore”.
When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.
The saga continues:
This made me actually sputter with frustration. Saliva exited my mouth. Why do you think your opinion SHOULD matter on this subject? Why should your opinion be given the same weight over people who are actually living these experiences? Especially when my original point was about how minorities rarely get to tell their own stories. I’ve been really patient with him but he’s taken up way too much of my time and he’s still missing the point like he’s trying to actively avoid it.
I JUST WANT TO SMOOSH HIS FACE
