~ Does Whatever a Spider Can ~

Got another thing to add to the gotta get me one o' these list:

Spiderman does it, so does James Bond. Now a gadget has been developed to allow US marines to zip up the sides of buildings or ships with virtually no effort.

All you do is fire a rope to the top of the structure using a harpoon gun or grappling hook, and then fit the rope into the device, called PowerQuick, which attaches to your climbing harness. Then just sit back and squeeze a lever.

Of course, since the military developed it, each one probably costs more than ten grand. But I can dream, can't I?

Isn't that more of a Batman thing?
