There can only be one correct answer to this question, and that's to proceed to tell the story of the Alice's Restaurant Massacree, with full orchestration and five part harmony and stuff like that.

Welcome. Good luck with your move, MiMi.

The network admin guy for my building freaked out today saying we were being attacked/hacked through cellar.org. WTF? i seriously doubt that was true, but any ideas what he was seeing?

Cloud 03-26-2008 10:18 PM

The Cellar ATTACKS! LOL!

Clodfobble 03-26-2008 10:34 PM

Were you in chat, versus on the main board?

lookout123 03-27-2008 12:19 AM

actually i had both chat and the cellar up.

Undertoad 03-27-2008 12:26 AM

Chat creates traffic unlike other HTTP traffic because it refreshes its page a lot, but only a network admin with no experience in security would find it to be an attack. My guess therefore is that your network admin has no experience in security.

lumberjim 03-27-2008 09:10 AM

my guess is that he's a snot nosed pickle kisser

2. is it a shark or a dolphin?
Both. A shark on wheels and a bacon-shooting dolphin.
Cool answer!

Flint 03-27-2008 10:02 AM

Is lookout's office being attacked by the shark on wheels or the bacon-shooting dolphin?

And, exactly how "experienced in security" does one have to be, in order to deal with such zoological abominations?

Unfortunately, the Blob is not affected by the electricity. The Fire Chief notes to Dave that the ploy did not work. Jane’s mother begins to spaz, calling on them to do something. The Chief then points out to Dave that the electrical discharge has caused the diner to catch on fire. Dave wonders if they can put it out, but the Chief says that there is not enough oxygen in the place to keep a fire going for more than ten minutes. In the diner’s cellar, the group notices that there is something burning. Steve then sees that the Blob is beginning to drip down the stairs towards them all. With no other way out, things seem pretty bleak. Jane comforts Danny by telling him to lay down and go to sleep. I suppose she’s gonna snap his neck before the Blob can get to him? She and Steve share a look, a smile and then an embrace, knowing that their proverbial goose is cooked. Outside, the Martins, the teens and the authorities can only watch, powerless to do anything.

Within the diner’s cellar, the cook is using a hand-held fire extinguisher to put out some of the flames. Steve notices that the Blob retreats when the spray hits it. He grabs the extinguisher from the cook and sprays it directly at the nearest chunk of Blob, which promptly backs away. He realizes that the creature cannot stand the cold and this was the reason it did not follow he and Jane into the freezer at his dad’s store. He sprays the beast some more, but the extinguisher is running low. He yells up the stairs to the open phone, informing Dave or anyone else on the other end that CO2 fire extinguishers are the weapon of choice.

Out in the police cruiser, Richie hears his voice and hands off the phone to Dave. After hearing Steve’s message, Dave quickly calls for every extinguisher that can be found…but only the kind with Carbon Dioxide. He has the Fire Chief round up the ones owned by the Fire Department and orders them to start hitting the Blob where it is covering the cellar windows. Mr. Martin approaches and says that he knows where there are twenty extinguishers of that type: at the high school. He just needs help in retrieving them. This is where Tony and the other teens offer their help. They pile into their cars and race away.

In the cellar, Steve’s weapon is about empty, but he continues to call up the stairs to Dave. At the high school, the fleet of cars arrives and everyone runs for the door, but it is locked. Mr. Martin checks for the key but does not have it. With a slight bit of reluctance, he picks up a rock and uses it to smash the glass encased in the door. Oddly enough, the rock that he grabs seems to be the only one on the entire lawn area, almost as if it was conveniently placed there. Mr. Martin then reaches through and unlocks the door. They all rush in and seconds later emerge with the extinguishers.

Back at the diner, the Fire Department dudes arrive with their extinguishers and begin putting them to use. Richie informs Dave that he has gotten through to Washington D.C. and help should be on the way. The kids return at this point and join the Firefighters in spraying the Blob with the CO2 extinguishers. The creature withdraws from the cold, gradually uncovering parts of the diner. As the crowd works to freeze the monster, Dave speaks with some military bigwig on the phone. He outlines their plan to freeze it, but reiterates that they need help moving the frozen monster as the sun will be coming up in a few hours. Whoever he is talking to has the bright idea of blowing it up, but Dave says that will just spread the creature across the countryside. He suggests getting a big transport plane and taking the thing to the arctic where it will never thaw out.

At this point, the creature has withdrawn enough to uncover some of [bthe cellar[/b] windows. Steve, Jane, Danny and the others come crawling out (good thing Jane didn’t snap Danny’s neck after all). Mr. and Mrs. Martin rush over to hug their kids while Dave comes up to congratulate Steve on some “nice work.” Steve thanks Dave for getting them out of there. He admits that he thought their number was a up, a sentiment Dave shared for a moment or two. Steve asks what they are going to do with the monster. Dave informs him that the Air Force is flying in a Globemaster to transport it to the arctic. Steve notes that it is not dead, just frozen. Dave thinks the thing cannot really be killed, but at least they have it stopped. “Yeah, as long as the arctic stays cold,” (AL GORE MOMENT) Steve adds.

You're all wondering why this boulder is sitting in the middle of this field, aren't you? It's called a glacial erratic. It was moved here by the enormous forces of a retreating glacier. Compared to the glacier, this boulder doesn't seem so big. But minus that context, it appears huge and out of place.

But don't worry. That's only because it is huge and out of place.


ps: Looks like your edit window has closed (the glacier retreated). It's here to stay.
