I might have beaten paul's windowless drive tonight, if not it's a close 2nd. When I got back out to my car the latch was once again frozen open so the door would not stay closed. I gave up on slamming the door shut after the people who's house I was parked in front of came to the window to see what all the noise was.

I now have very little feeling in my left arm after driving back to Stillwater pulling the door closed the whole way. Best of all, I still managed to give my favorite hand gesture to 3 of those people with the god-given right to drive in the left lane as slow as they'd like regardless of anyone who might wish to pass them on the left rather then on the right.

Karma. If I had walked down Bryant instead of Aldrich you could have used the bungee I had in my coat pocket.

I have found Bungees even more useful then towels.

:o If THIS is the situation you've just found yourself in, you're probably past the "aw just slap a bungee on it" stage. Bungee or towel.

But you could make a tourniquet to stop the bleeding with a bungee.

Heck, you could make a tourniquet to stop the bleeding with the Spoonapult. Which would work on elephants.

Or you could carry a Combat Applied Turnaquet(CAT) on you at all times. What!? Jude had a full sized wire cutter on him last night(So incredibly cool) , both equally important, one could probable necessitate the use of the other

Oh, the CAT works for all sorts of things as well, i.e. keeping car door closed.

Nick. The pair of clean socks I carry around works well cleaning up the blood.

Does nobody else find it disturbing that Nick drives a car that bleeds?
