Holloween Safety

Filed under This~n~That

It is worthwhile to remember a few simple rules to help keep yourself healthy, happy and safe (in
other words, not dead).

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to
see if it’s really dead.

2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.

4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they
should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in
the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so
be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else’s voice.

5. When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off or go alone. Hit the
first person that says, “Let’s split up.”

6. As a general rule, don’t solve puzzles that open portals to Hell. It’s just
not that fun.

7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to
any other house of the dead as well.

8. If you’re searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out
that it’s just the cat, GET OUT OF THERE ANYWAY!

9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short
circuits; just get out.

10. Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.

11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there’s probably a good reason
for it. Don’t stop and look around.

12. Don’t fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you’re sure you know
what you’re doing.

13. If you’re running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least
twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are
running and the monster is merely shambling along, it’s still moving fast
enough to catch up with you.

14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior
such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness,
and so on, kill them immediately.

15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed
here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you’re in trouble if you
recognize this one), anywhere in Texas where chain saws are sold, the Bermuda
Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the
nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is
strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot
yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.

17. Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chain saws, staple guns,
hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawn mowers, butane
torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased

18. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to
move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous
inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible
fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices.

19. Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old
house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a
candle. Make that two flashlights!

20. Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare
suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard.

21. Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.

Wilma, update

Filed under This~n~That

I am thankful to share that we were virtually untouched by Wilma,and our prayers go out to those who were again devastated by the force of nature, and the acts of God.

With wind gusts of up to 125 miles per hour, Hurricane Wilma plowed into the southwestern coast of Florida at daybreak Monday morning. The storm traveled across the state in about seven hours, resulting in six confirmed deaths, leaving six million people without electricity and causing anywhere from $2-10 billion in estimated property damages. Prior to landfall in the United States, the hurricane pounded the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, causing extensive damage to homes and community structures.

At this point, little has been reported from Naples and points south, the areas thought to be hit hardest by Hurricane Wilma.
