    Actually, hurricane of hammers sounds like something that might make a good bad movie. If Sharknado can do it....

    Good morning Scribble, a very nice topic starter (I know, I'm a bit late to this thread having been offline for ages). While I can not (so far) think of any contributions, I am having lots of fun working out what the real title was of your post and all the respondents.
