    Thai Spiderman Saves Autistic Boy

    Ain't this great (though why the hell did he have a spiderman costume in his locker?):

    Thai 'Spider-Man' to the rescue



    An unusual disguise has helped a Bangkok fireman rescue an eight-year-old boy who had climbed on to a third-floor window ledge, Thai police say.

    The firefighter dressed up as the comic book superhero Spider-Man in order to coax the boy, who is autistic, from his dangerous perch.
    Police said teachers had alerted the fire station after the boy began crying and climbed out of a classroom window.

    It was reportedly his first day at the special needs school.
    Efforts by the teachers to convince the pupil back inside had failed.

    But a remark by his mother about his passion for comic superheroes prompted fireman Somchai Yoosabai to rush back to the station, where he kept a Spider-Man costume in his locker.

    The sight of Mr Yoosabai dressed as Spider-Man and holding a glass of juice for him, brought a big smile to the boy's face, and he promptly threw himself into the arms of his "superhero", police said.

    Mr Yoosabai normally uses the costume to liven up fire drills in schools.

                    A Venom rashguard would be a little less nerdy looking IMO.

                        i was wondering if they were going to say why he had a spiderman costume in his locker. I think one of the reporters on the scene should've just run back to their office and got their Superman costume.

                          Wow. LARPing for the win?
                          I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
                          Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

                            Also, I love novelty rashguards.

                            That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

                              At a dive shop in San Diego, the guys that ran the place had custom wetsuits- one Spiderman and one Captain America, I believe.
