Panic Room

Last weekend, Jeani and I saw The Panic Room. I won’t give away any details here – unless you really want me to do so – but I will say it was worth the price of admission (we got in for free.)

The idea of a panic room is interesting, though. It acts as a safe harbor (castle keep): if someone breaks into your house, you can go into the panic room, call the cops, and be safe due to a myriad supplies. The panic room in the film included eight monitors attached to cameras throughout the house, its own ventilation system, a solid steel door, concrete around the entire room, a toilet with sink, medical supplies, and some basic supplies (water).

It got me to wondering, though: what would you need in your panic room? -pm

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
