conference today; lots of clever people talking science.
fellow presenting about the production of spider silk was asked, in all seriousness, about the physical possibility of spider-man's webslinging as a means of transportation.
damn but i love me some nerds.
to remember: a 4cm diameter thick cord of spider silk is strong enough to hold a 747.
