Sweet tools for the impending Zombie Apocalypse

I'm behind in catching up with my RSS feeds, so I just saw this thing from CoolTools:


For all the firefighters out there that read my blog, this is nothing new. Just your standard multipurpose tool for prying. And chopping. And slicing. And wedging. And busting various things open.

I guess if you have to have the very best to kill zombies, spring for the titanium version at $550. Your children's children will thank you for it.

We watched the Watchmen

My wife and I had some time to ourselves the other day so we figured we would catch Slumdog Millionaire at the Alamo Drafthouse.

It was a great plan, except everyone else had the same idea. It was sold out almost an hour before showtime. Oh well. How about Gran Torino? Sold out. There was only one alternative.


I thought it was great. I loved the intro credits, the fighting, the gore, and the story. My wife thought it was good, but long. Favorite character? Rorschach (no surprise) hands down.

Why Alamo Drafthouse? Fried pickles - they really know how to make them there. I also tried the Drafthouse Amber beer. Pretty good! I can't remember what the entree was called, but we shared the fish and chips special, and it was fantastic.

Sudden hailstorm

After assuring my wife it was too warm to hail (what do you mean hail comes from the atmosphere...which is colder...), we had a freak hailstorm for about five minutes last night. It was coming down pretty hard, and the largest segment dumped pieces sized between a quarter and a golf ball.

Luckily there seems to be no major damage except for some window pane gasket things, but I'm sure we'll have someone out to inspect our roof.

After it stopped the accumulated hailstones looked more like snow.
