I think we should map out all the fallout shelters for the impending zombie apocalypse.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I was at a convention in Minneapolis last weekend, and I made it into a couple of pictures. Here's one... I'm on the far left, standing:



Part of what's fun about this convention is that it's in a different city every year, so we get to visit a lot of places. And because it's not a large con (about 300 people), I've made a lot of friends from all over North America. In that photo are people from Atlanta, Boston, Raleigh, and Minneapolis, and I also got to see friends from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Jersey, Washington, Blacksburg, Winnipeg, and other places that are escaping my mind right now.

The only other picture I'm in (that's been posted so far), I'm in profile. Therefore, this is the photo that has finally convinced me that I need to lose 30 or 40 pounds...



I know there's at least one other photo that I was in, but I haven't seen a copy yet.

After getting back, I had dinner one night this week with an old friend who had moved to Vancouver roughly 20 years ago, and I hadn't seen him since then. We went to a brew pub near where I used to live - they make some mighty fine beers there. My friend is on the left, and his brother (whom I met that night) is on the right:



Edit: I just realized the coincidence in my posting these photos. The con had an apocalyptic theme, hence the pink radioactivity symbol in the con's logo, pictured on my friend's T-shirt in that second photo. Goes nicely with the fallout shelter photo above.

Attended my nieces birthday party this weekend, it was held at an apple farm. The boys got to go on a hay ride, do some apple picking and eat some birthday cake.

Thanks, I think so too. Only wish I framed the shot a little better.

Gaseous, always love your aircraft pictures. Being ex-Air Force makes my day every time I see some of your shots.

Sweet aircraft pics! I always love seeing vintage jets actually flying rather than just on static display.

I think so. My other lower had three roots!

Impressive! I actually had to have a lot of my baby teeth pulled because of hooked roots so I'm no stranger to having teeth pulled by the dentist. I never got Vicodin though.
I got it done Saturday afternoon, and it's now early Monday and I'm still needing the Vicodin. I've never had one this bad, and I definitely have a high pain tolerance (as confirmed by my dentist). With the other three I just took Ibuprofen for a couple days and was done. Have to say, it's making the workday interesting so far. My boss is sweetly concerned about me, meaning for the next couple days I'll likely enjoy a very light workload and being really high at the office!

When I had my 3 wisdom teeth removed sometime in high school, they knocked me out completely. Can't imagine trying to endure that while awake!
More than once I've had people tell me I am "stoic" during medical procedures. I think it comes from having so many done starting at such an early age. This one was bad, though! Especially before he realized I wasn't numb! But at least the music was good, giving me something else to focus on, and I have an awesomely fucked up tooth to show off!

For some reason I imagine you sitting at your work computer, eyes sort of glazed over and happy smile on your face. Just sort of sitting there and staring into space.

Ugh! I feel for ya, tsq. One of my wisdom teeth was hooked liked that, and it was a bitch to get out.

Seeker- those old fallout shelter signs are still everywhere. There's one on my church. If there's ever a nuclear war, those signs are going to be all that's left of us. Well, and cockroaches.
So where are the actual shelters? Or did they consider the church the shelter?

^The signs are on all kinds of old buildings -- churches, libraries, and all of the schools around New York that I taught in.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

So the building itself was the shelter? Not pointing to some underground lead lined bunker?
