"You can say so," she replied, "The little girls like it because of the pageant, and people overall have a good time." 

"Ya don’t say." He shut his notebook and slipped it back into his pocket. Looking back up at her, he continued, "That does like a good time. Though I’m surprised that y’all would hold one so late in the season. By the time yer festival rolls ‘round, we’ll be done pickin’ fer the year down here."

During a zombie outbreak, you can expect large power outages very soon and before long, there will be no electricity at all. When night falls, you find yourself in a lot of trouble if you’re unable to see. One of the most important things that you should carry in your zombie survival kit is a flashlight. I’m sure that you all know this, but I wanted to talk to you guys about WHICH flashlight you should bring.
First things first, make sure it’s WATERPROOF. Anything less will only one day be the cause of your death. After you purchase your flashlight, turn it on and leave it COMPLETELY SUBMERGED underwater for at least 30 min. If you sense ANY kinds of trouble or leakage, return it immediately. Waterproof = survival!
"SHAKE" FLASHLIGHTS vs BATTERY POWERED Emergency shake flashlights are not bad as a secondary flashlight. Most are inexpensive, completely waterproof, and even FLOAT in water which makes it very easy to recover if you ever lose it in water. They require just a few shakes before you’re able to use it. I don’t suggest you carry one as a main flashlight because they take time to generate enough energy to shine a bright light for a long time. On top of that, they’re noisy, too. Bad idea if you need to move through the dark while remaining silent. As I said before, they make great back-up flashlights, but don’t bet your life on them.

BATTERY POWERED LED FLASHLIGHTSI suggest you carry a battery powered LED flashlights for many reasons.1. Most use AA or AAA batteries which are easy to pack and carry. They can be easy to find in urban areas2. LED bulbs last far longer than standard bulbs and shine much brighter3. LED bulbs require less energy than standard bulbs which means your batteries will last longer4. They come in various colors
Why do you need colored LED bulbs?Having different colored bulbs utilizes your flashlight in brand new ways and can be the difference between life and death.
WHITE - Shines brightly - Good for seeing long distances away - Can be used to blind people if conditions are right.
BLUE - Medium range light - Blue light is the only light that will cut through fog. The blue light is not visible to night vision systems and, though not operating in the Ultra Violet spectrum, at 455nM it is very effective in revealing the presence of body fluids on carpets, upholstery, clothing etc which is why it’s used by search and rescue personnel searching for an injured person.
RED - Designed for low-light use and preferred by some for night vision because it often provides for a greater contrast. Good for reserving night vision where you’re in the dark and need light for a brief moment, but don’t want to succumb to “light blindness” like you would when looking into the flash when you have your picture taken.
GREEN - It does not attract insects the way a white light can. Green is often used in military operations because, unless viewed straight on, it is difficult to pick up with the human eye. Green is also useful in smoke-filled environments because it does not “wash out” the field of vision like white light does.
Many flashlights come equipped with 3 and sometimes all 4 colors. I have the Coleman Multi-Colored LED Flashlight which I picked up at Wal-Mart for $25. It also came with a lanyard which is great for keeping up with it and not losing it.
Okay… So, who learned something here today?

Not funny different, as in Will and Pig boy different. But different as in on the kinky edge of things.

*holds his hands up in defense, because that’s what she’s gonna get*

Alright listen here, darlin’ - first off, I did NOT steal those underwear. There ain’t no reason WHATSOEVER fer me to do so. Second, I would never steal. Ever. And third, whatever kinky thing you’re implyin’ I’m into does NOT revolve ‘round me stealin’ women’s underwear. Or wearin’ them.

Don't tell any of the other states this, but I'm gonna need to buy a huge stock of peaches for some Peach Festival in the Commonwealth. I've quite failed at my attempt... and yours taste much better. No wonder you're the Peach State.

*smiles* That I am. And don’t worry, Ms. Virginia, when it comes to peaches I’m yer man. Just tell me how much ya need and when ya need ‘em by.
