Honestly did not look at your links just went by what the locals told me.

So they used phone booths in Abu Ghraib?
Yes indeed. Will Ferrell was a prisoner there

Did you know that Abu Ghraib is German for a Whale's Vagina.

Citation please. There is no proper translation of what it means in arabic to the Iraquis so any German translation is more than suspect.

In Arabic it means "Father of Little Crows"

Honestly, to me it was just a photo of a so-so comedian in blue,in a silly phone booth pose. Just another photo for the phone booth silliness. I am not a Ferrel follower and have no knowledge of his characters so was making no joke about his Burgundy schtick.

On topic.... Can someone really thrust a small knife through the bone of the eye socket, penetrate far enough to off the zombie and still be able to pull the knife out for another strike?

Local intel is always great! I've travelled many other places but never the Middle East.

Yes, I think that I would have run somewhere else rather than take shelter in a phone booth. As Stercutus alluded to ("What is a phone booth?"), phone booths are no longer a staple of the American landscape.

Agreed. But, for the sake of the situation, adapt.

For instance, NYC phone booths are being restored now to serve as wi-fi access points. So, it's not so strange to believe that it might be a possibility.

If you are searching for something more common, think about an abandoned car. No gas, but you can get inside. How do you adapt to that? Different situation, same concept.

Good points. It can be many forms of shelter with only one door: bathroom, trailer, closet and so on.

The point is to think "outside the box" (pun very intended). Adaptation is the only way to survive in a post-apocalyptic situation.

I wanted to thank you for bringing up an interesting story! I found a couple of good articles with the background story.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/18/nyreg ... .html?_r=0
http://www.forbes.com/sites/amitchowdhr ... free-wifi/

In essence they will eliminate the old school physical payphone booth and use the wired infrastructure to enable WiFi kiosks in the same physical location.

I guess we could ask them to install a ladder where you could sit on top of the kiosk and shoot Zombies from above. :clap:
