A couple of days ago, I asked [livejournal.com profile] 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!)
