WASP Knife-For slashing zombies, then exploding them with compressed air

July 24, 2008

Yeah, if you’re like me, you love killing zombies, but you wish you didn’t have to use a gun to do it. It just doesn’t seem sporting, what with the high-powered scopes and all. Well, has exactly what you need. It offers the intimacy of a close kill, combined with the exploding power of a bullet.  A more elegant weapon from a more civilized era….

Watch this demonstration on a watermelon.

The creators of knife are apparently divers and claim their product can be used to fend off predators in the water. Look at the science below.

As divers, we all know what the effects of compressed gas are underwater. Our training teaches us that our lungs would burst from over-inflation if we held our breath and rose to the surface. This principle is key to the effectiveness of the WASP Injection System.

This weapon injects a freezing cold ball of compressed gas, approximately the size of a basketball, at 800psi nearly instantly. The effects of this injection will drop many of the world’s largest land predators. The effects of the compressed gas not only cause over-inflation during ascent when used underwater, but also freezes all tissues and organs surrounding the point of injection on land or at sea. When used underwater, the injected gas carries the predator to the surface BEFORE blood is released into the water. Thus giving the diver added protection by diverting other potential predators to the surface.

This discussion brings to mind a scenario you never want to face in the water: a simultaneous zombie and shark attack. If you’re lucky, they’ll just fight one another, and then you can finish off the other. But, say the shark is turned into a zombie: would a zombie shark really be that bad? They’d just roam around all day looking for someone to feast on…which is pretty much what they do now.

Funny interview with the original TV Batman, Adam West

June 26, 2008

A small excerpt from a recent interview with Adam West, the original TV Batman.

Most men have fallen for the wrong type of woman at least once – did you have some sympathy for your character for his love of Catwoman?

Oh yes. He was just a poor soul. He was so torn, Martin…it was heartbreaking! [laughs] He had these curious stirrings in his utility belt, and yet he knew she had to be put away in the slammer.

Do you ever regret turning Cubby Broccoli down for James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever?

Not really. No, wait a minute. Yes.

And a scene from “The Batman Movie” made in 1966. Holy sardine!
