Silk was often used as an under-liner beneath armor because projectiles like bullets did not pierce the silk, it pulled the silk into the wound - keeping it 'hygienic'. Read More

That's really neat. My first thought is talk about a way to blow through your disk space!

at least for average amounts of infinity

Sure... :)

Yes - spider silk is being used for improved armor and in parachutes; it can be used in automobiles because it can be given 'memory' so that the energy of the accident will be taken up by the product and released as it resumes its original shape.

In Canada, some goats were modified to produce 'spider silk' in their milk. The spidergoats are the product of a company called BioSteel.
