Re: The OFFICIAL 2020 Self-Quarantine Thread

I cut my own hair for the first time in my life last week. I bought some $40 clippers at the grocery store (I had researched them on Amazon first), and they actually worked pretty well. I made a mess of the bathroom, but actually did a decent job with the cut.

Re: Movies

I watched Train To Busan last night with my son and really liked it. It was one of the best zombie movies I've seen, right there with 28 Days Later. And it passed Snowpiercer to become my favorite Korean train-based apocalypse movie. If like zombies or good action flicks, give it a shot.
