So if you were bitten by a genetically engineered spider and started having weird dreams -- or weirder symptoms -- what would you do?
Search the internet, of course.
If you did search the internet, and happened to be Peter Parker in a big summer blockbuster, you might come across a link to Spider Bite Symptoms on About.com First Aid. You might even scroll through some of the spider bite pictures available here on About.com First Aid.
Indeed, that's what Peter Parker did in The Amazing Spider-Man.
In the real world there's no evidence of spider bites imbuing the victim with spider-like abilities (although at least one guy was convinced that a spider bite cured his paralysis). You're more likely to have a red bump and a little pain.
Heck, those skin boils are probably not spider bites at all.
I have to admit my interest in this latest installment/reboot of the classic comic had more to do with its connection to the World Wide Web than the Webslinger, but I absolutely loved this movie! Internet connections aside, I think this was the best of the Spider-Man movies by far.
If Stan Lee created it, he appears in the movie. And this cameo was his best yet. Go see it; you won't regret it.
