Why I love Texas

| October 3, 2009

Paula Ollie, a 27-year-old resident of a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, heard someone trying to break into her house the other night. Her response was both inventive and very direct (emphasis mine):

The 27-year-old mother collected several pool balls and placed them in her son’s bicycle helmet.

“The pool balls just looked like the most aerodynamic, heaviest things I could get a hold of right then,” she said.

Ollie went out through the back door and climbed a tree to get to her roof – all while clenching the bike helmet’s strap in her teeth. Once on the roof, she unleashed her unconventional defense.

I hollered out ‘Death from above!’ I’m not kidding. And no sooner than I said that, I started chucking pool balls at them.
