The first line of defense
This is the kind of thing we get up to 'round these parts. When the sun becomes distant and weak, and the temperature begins to drop past the point that will support human life, we build honking great air canons that fire pumpkins with enough velocity to destroy derelict automobiles. We are simple folk. With access to air compressors and orange squash.
This video comes from the Statesman Journal, the paper for which my wife works. It was produced by Chris Hagan. I dare you to watch it and not smile.
I wanted to embed the video here, but the Statesman's embed code is broken beyond my ability to fix it. Instead I will direct you to the video on their site and drive up their hit count.
