Ladies and Gentlemen I regret to inform you all that I will not be doing a Poll Position post this week. I had a very rough weekend at work and as a result I am in so much pain I can barely think straight. As some of you may know I have a number of permanent injuries which I have suffered over the years most prominent of those being my back and both my knees. I have a very physical job which was very busy this weekend and combined with working outside in the rain has aggravated those injuries and has left me a little indisposed. I will have the results of my caption contest up either
tomorrow Wednesday or Thursday and the next round of FNF will be up on Friday.

The Secret Lair
Sorry to hear that you are feeling bad. I understand what it is like living with back pain. Two auto accidents and a work related injury leaves me feeling like I can’t stand up sometimes. Since you aren’t posting an official poll I thought that I might share a question that I asked on facebook.
How about a little pop quiz to hold us over until the Walking Dead returns in Oct.
Zombies invade your house while you are reading this post. You have 30 seconds to find a weapon to defend yourself. Look around the room that you are in and share with us what you would use to fight the zombie hoard.
This was the comment that I left to start the thread.
Looking around my room, I have a stainless steel tonfa that I made out of 1 inch round stainless steel tubing. I also know that I have several fantasy swords as well as my walking stick not too far away in the next room. Most of the swords are decorative and wouldn’t hold up long in an actual fight, but one is a full tang stainless steel ninja-to style blade that should come in pretty handy.
I know that those are close range weapons, but if I can make it to my garage, I have archery suplies out there.
I would have a problem of having too much of a choice! I am a sword collector, looking around my room I have 14 swords hanging on my wall or sitting on my book shelves. I also have a heavy mace, and a pistol crossbow. I think I would grab one of two my Katanas as they are the only swords that have a razor sharp edge.
Good luck with the pain control. I’m having trouble with the skeleton this spring, too.
The good news is, if I’m at home, all the windows are just high enough to mean any blunt will do. And my wife will be in a secure building. My wife can do the same if she’s home with our little ones. If I’m at work, the building is not secure but over-equipped.
Get better soon Kaldath. We’ll try to make do without the Poll until then.
I have a sword hidden in a cane nearby. It’s pretty sharp too. Although I figure I’d be Walker bait, given that I’m stumbling on a sprained ankle today. Seems I took a slide down some stairs at the local comic convention.
Um, I can use the decorative letter opener I got from my aunt.
