Stanford Engineers to Colbert, Yes Spider-Man is plausible

This is more Cambridge University versus Stanford than Stanford versus Colbert. The short version…

Cambridge University announced in a study that humans were too big to actually be Spider-Man, it just wouldn’t work. The CBS The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, like so many of us, was devastated by the news (I decided to settle for just flying like Superman instead, that’s still realistic). And enter Stanford, who have said not so fast Cambridge. In a video Stanford has responded with technology they invented in 2014 that makes being Spider-Man possible, to the joy of everyone. Even better, they do it to a capella version of the 1967 TV show The Amazing Spider-Man theme sung by The Stanford Mendicants.

The even shorter version… still dream on being Spider-Man.
