Pray for Power

Modern-day Spidey, Hibiki Kono of Cambridge.

Yep, all is well until the power goes off…

“Hibiki Kono of Cambridge, England, is sucking up lots of media attention because of a wall-climbing device he invented that uses two 15-pound vacuum cleaners. You don’t have to ask this kid who his favorite superhero is. Not surprisingly, it’s Spider-Man.”

    Lest’ you think that Hibiki was the first person to think of this (he wasn’t). Watch as Jem, from the BBC’s “Bang Goes the Theory” scales the BBC’s White City building in West London.

    Can Jem make it to the top at the BBC, with just suction gloves built from ordinary vacuum cleaners?

About The Author

54-years old and determined to sail through life with a smile (but sometimes brash as hell). LOL. Born and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico but having lived more than half of my life in Texas. Raised with a strong faith in God but describe myself more as simply a faithful person rather than a Christian. (Too many people rely on their religious 'beliefs' as an excuse to maintain a closed mind rather than emulate the loving nature I believe Jesus Christ did represent.) Registered as a Democrat but fiscally I'm probably more likely to identify with the Republicans. Am equally disgusted with both parties at the moment and tired of the status quo in Washington, D.C. I'm a spiritualist who believes you should reach for your dreams and believes you can attain them, for the only thing that really stands between you and your goals ... is yourself. Favorite quote of recent is "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, the present is a 'present' (a gift)..." —Author unknown
