Aww...my pet rabid wolverine LIVES in my car. Where do I put him now? (oh..they said PANTS. That's fine, then.)


ETA: My parents live to far away...anyone care to come over and eat my matches for me, before I burn my house down? I promise I'll stay to the right of the hall so I won't bump into you match-eating nerds.

Now, if we're talking about Wolverine from the X-Men, that's different.

Hugh Jackson=Yum.

I remember these "Safety First!" programs (book covers, maybe some other swag/stuff) in elementary school, but I didn't understand it, or what the big deal was...

No. Really.

All they left out was the 'duck and cover' in honor of possible nuclear attack.

Duck And Cover (http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=duck+and+cover&hl=en&emb=0#), you say?

Duck And Cover (http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=duck+and+cover&hl=en&emb=0#), you say?
"We must obey the Civil Defense worker."

But now that I think about it, what's the shelf life of duct tape? Is it still good after five years? (http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/02/11/emergency.supplies/)

Oh, so is that the secret to your longevity, Ferret?

The duck and cover looks like something from the 50s.

I remember duck and cover in school though. It was at the start of the cold war and during the Cuban Missile crisis, but me, naive soul that I am, always thought we were just doing tornado drills.

The 55-gallon drums of potable water in the basement halls never really tipped me off either.

We had "Air Raid Drills" back when I was in elementary school in the mid 70's. The siren would go off, we'd all file out single-file into the hall, stop, duck and cover...sort of like the Blitzkrieg Bop.
