How Did I Miss This Film?

Killer shrews

The plot, according to IMDB:

A disparate group are trapped on a remote island by a hurricane. On the island, a doctor works to make humans twice as small as we already are. This, apparently, will help prevent over population. Unfortunately, his experiments have also created some giant shrews. As the shrews run out of smaller animals to eat, they move in on the people in the house.

Here is a look at one of those killer shrews.

This looks like such a classic film. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it until now!

According to Wikipedia,

Nattō (なっとう or 納豆) is a traditional Japanese food made from soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis. It is popular especially as a breakfast food. Nattō may be an acquired taste because of its powerful smell, strong flavor, and slimy texture.

According to my son, natto is like someone ate a lot of beans without chewing, and then sneezed. Somehow, I could not finish this breakfast meal. My youngest children refused to even try. Said one: “I thought you were against the idea of eating bugs and other gross things.”natto

How To Open A Can Without A Can Opener–A Crazy Russian Life Hack

“Safety is our number one priority.”

So, we tried it. At first we failed, because we used an American can, which is no doubt much sturdier than the crappy tin used in the video. After finding a Russian can of tuna, we had better results. The can exploded sending tuna everywhere, and we spent hours in the emergency room afterwards getting a couple of fingers stitched back on, but we were successful, and our cat is now happy that he will survive the zombie apocalypse.

(Disclaimer: You don’t really think we would be stupid enough to try this, do you?)
