When turkey day rolled around, I learned that my super-neat baster had somehow been crushed in the gadget drawer, so I made an emergency trip for a new one.

While in temporary housing, we found ourselves TV-less. Now wanting to miss the big game, we quickly chose a small, 32-inch television (LED, 720p) from Best Buy and brought it "home."

There's something about staring mortality in the face, whether personally or as a species, that humans find fascinating. That's probably why the apocalypse in all its forms is a scifi staple.Read more
