    It's a typical lazy afternoon at home. The rest of your family is gone for the weekend and you have the place all to yourself. It seems that no matter what you try to occupy yourself with, it doesn't satisfy you. You turn on the tv and flip through the channels. Nothing on. You look through your DVD collection. You've seen them all at least twice. You make call after call, desperate to find someone to do something with. Nobody answers. You try to think of something - anything - to do, but nothing comes to mind. You pace around the house, trying to find something to cure your boredom. You pass by the partially open basement door and see a faint light flickering from down the stairs. You don't remember leaving any lights on and you're sure nobody else is home. You want to find out what it is but you're terrified of the basement. You open the door a fraction more but and you are already shaking. You...

    A) Call the Ghostbusters
    B) Call your girlfriend
    C) Try to ignore it
    D) Venture into the darkness

    Well choices A and B are invalid because your phone is obviously not working if you're making call after call and no one answers.

    EF2, you make sense about B, but you can only call the Ghostbusters in an emergency.
    And this is an emergency.

    Use the 'pass' card and jump ahead to the part where Chuck Norris and I fight an entire alien armarda set on the destruction of earth and my cheese grilled sandwhich.

    You can always dress up like a gorilla with a downed ass flap, run into the basement and start screaming "I AM THE EGG MAN!"... Worked for me that one time.

    Except that my place doesn't have an internal door leading to the basement. Nor does it have a basement.

    So I already have a mystery door that wasn't there yesterday with a light coming from within. Ghostbusters it is.

    You peek through the barely open door. The light has mysteriously vanished and only darkness remains. You figure you'll never be able to stay calm knowing something might be down there. You search the nearby closet for a flashlight. You can only find a small one. "Better than nothing." you think to yourself. You turn back to the basement door and feel yourself shaking even more. You turn on the flashlight and take a few steps down the stairs. Nothing has gone wrong so far so you decide to continue down into the abyss. As you reach the bottom you notice the light is coming from the laundry room to your left. It's so dim that it must be a candle. As you creep closer, a shadow appears. "It's coming from the laundry room! I never should have come down here." you whimper. You are terrified but you are also only a step away from the entrance. You take the final step and...

    A) I should have called the Ghostbusters!
    B) It was just a candle flickering
    C) A strange man in a cloak
    D) You see nothing...

    A. Not only have they managed to create a room that didn't exist and seamlessly install it into my hallway without me hearing anything, but they installed plumbing.

    Whatever did this is not something I want to mess with.
     
  18. C- I then proceed to yell "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY HOUSE!" as i beat the man to pulp with my puny flashlight. Not only was he causing a fire hazard with that candle, but he also did a BnE and was probably wasting my water.

    For me, the small torches lying around the house are the bright LED ones, while the larger ones filament bulbs. So the small ones put out much better light.

    *And since the care isn't mine, it won't be there. So that torch is out of the scenario.
