Spider-Man - Qualified Perceptions
A couple of days ago, I asked mjperson how he cleans the telescope at his observatory. I had images of window washers rappeling down from the top of the dome, with huge sponges. He said well, there isn't actually glass at the front of the telescope, it's all mirrors at the back. So they turn the telescope so that it's pointed down, and then they shoot web-fluid at it with their Spider-Man web fluid wrist shooters.

I said "What?"

He said no, really. They have genuine Spider-Man web shooters, and one is filled with isopropyl alcohol and one is filled with distilled water, and they point their wrists at the mirror and say "ksssss!" and shoot it.

I said "You're making that up! Really? That's so cool! Why haven't I ever heard that before, why don't you just tell everyone that as a story?"

He said he didn't think it was that interesting. But then he sent me pictures, just to prove he wasn't making it up.

(Phooey! I mis-spelled anecdote, but I can't change that since the poll exists now!)
Poll #969562 Anecdoe

(pick one)

This isn't interesting. Why did you bother to tell me?
Wow! Spider-Man! Who knew? Tell me more stories like this!

...but really, mjperson should tell his own stories like this. :)

They should both tell us more stories like this! ^_^

I think the relevant question is "surely there must be a better water pistol than spider-man brand web shooters?"

But would they be nearly as cool?

He said they used to use Super Soakers, but the web-shooters gave you more fine control. (And, apparently, are cooler).

Ah... Super Soakers is what I would've thought of first too. Good tip that the web shooters give more fine control. Thanks ;-)
