Here are a few of my favorite things: Nintendo, Penny Arcade, The Legend of Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, Harvest Moon, Fallout, Dungeons and Dragons, books, dice, Professor Layton, Shadow of the Colossus, Minecraft, and so much more. I'm going to talk a lot about video games, I sincerely hope you don't mind.

Would you like to be more like Spider-man?

Ever dreamed of swinging from the rooftops and casting spiderweb-type lines to catch yourself when falling off a tall building? Really? Me too! Fortunately for us, maybe that day is coming a little bit closer.

Will it be sticky enough to hold our weight so we can scale buildings?
I hope so!

They have a lot of nobel goals, such as replacing toughened plastics, stronger stitches and other medical purposes.

The rest of the world just wants to be Spider-man.
