So when I was six I had gone out with my mom and dad to go see Spider-man in theatres and I thought that it was the coolest movie ever considering I was raised on Marvel and one of my all time favorite heroes had come to life. I was royally obsessed with the movie and thought I myself could be like Spiderman and swing around...yeah I quickly found out I couldn't exactly do that. I had attempted to use the cord that moved my blinds as my "web" and jumped off my sill and heard snap as I landed square on my floor with an organizing bin stand landing on me. The moral of the story is, never believe everything you see on screen, now-a-days I laugh at this story cause I was so gullible at that age but who wasn't.
