So, here's the bad joke of the day...

Well, okay, the bad joke of two days ago, which is when it popped into my head...


Q. What do you call the restroom at an internet cafe?











A. An IP address...



Yeah, yeah, I was already going to burn in Hell anyway...

"I do sexy, I don't do deadly."
As I watched that video, I kept thinking about 2 things:

1) although I like him, I have always had a problem with Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man, because of all the amount of hands-on engineering and science innovation he’d have to do to get his web shooters to work. (Not to mention, sophisticated sewing skills.) And this girl’s apartment is a perfect illustration of the issue: it’s full of gear and power tools. Parker would have needed at least as much, plus unfettered access to a chem lab, and there’s no evidence in the comics he had either, much less both. A relationship with Tony Stark or other Marvel Comics technocrat- as hinted at in the MCU- makes much more sense.

Isn't that three things?


I wondered if it's her apartment or a separate workshop. She may have addressed that in another video.

Considering her doing some of the work on a balcony and the demo in an exterior walkway- both of which look like they were parts of a residential building- I’m saying it’s an apartment.

Now, it is entirely possible she could have the CN¥ to have a second apartment that’s been converted into a workshop. None of those power tools is cheap, after all.

You've never heard them before? Duuuuude:
I came across them a few years back. For me, somehow I came across the group Battlelore (I forget how) and I liked a) the fact that the music was neat and b) lots of their music was based off the LotR, which was cool. Looked more into similar type of music, came across Nightwish, Lacuna Coil (Heaven's a Lie still one of my favorite songs) and more. Good type of music. Makes Evanescence seem bland to me.

1) The short hand-wavy version from the comics is that Parker did all of his engineering and construction at his high school, which could (however unlikely) theoretically have a good enough machine shop and chemistry lab to make the shooters and webbing, considering the fact that Parker is a genius.
Now, how the hell he did it without a single <expletive deleted=""> person noticing at all</expletive> is another matter.

As far as sewing his costume, it's more a matter of having a decent sewing machine that can do the right kind of stitching rather than needing advanced skills.

2) Umm, yeah... To be honest, I just couldn't watch more than four minutes of the video before I had to turn it off the first time through...

My great grandmother made Mardi Gras costumes and ball gowns, often with hand-sewn beading. She taught my mom how to sew, who, while not as proficient, is good enough to do pro-level work. She in turn taught me.

I’m not a pro by any stretch of the imagination, and I’ve done some serious fabrication.

Let me assure you, given the kind of materials for the suit and mask; the number, size and shape of the pieces needed for any incarnation of he suit...you need pro level skills, and “a sewing machine” isn’t going to be sufficient. You’re going to need to carefully plot out and cut that fabric with precision. You’re going to need to get those eye-coverings- whatever they’re made of- into that mask. You need venting for the web-shooters that conceals but does not obstruct their nozzles.

Some of that final assembly is going to involve hand stitching.

people are amazed by Parker making web shooters and a costume worthy of any Cos-play show.....

I was impressed he gained powers...….

I think when she got hurt was one of the better parts. I agree she should have left it in. Some of these projects can be dangerous. If you're too careless you could lose a finger, arm, or implant.

I've watched several DIY videos and wondered if it really went that smoothly.

Grandparents are the only people that can give themselves a nickname and they screw it up everytime.
Like my father.... I am grandpa Whiskers.

My son-in-law refers to me (as a grandfather) as Poop-Pah. I hope that is celtic and not the father of poop.....

The group I mentioned last week seems to have lost their dwarf but picked up either a barbarian or mountain man ranger and a hag.

"Hag?" Your female player may be a bit old and ugly but to call her a hag....
At least she's not an anus hag. Just a reminder, this a group of people that had a camper and stayed the night in the Walmart parking lot last weekend. The one I call the Amazon is cute. I would like to get to know her.

I saw the group last night. Then animal control rolled the parking lot. I started saying "hide the pig", "hide the pig" I don't think animal control was looking for the pig.
