Things I am learning about Barrow, Alaska from watching 30 Days of Night

1. The people who live there are really careless with their cellphones.

2. The airport shuts down for a month in the dead of winter, and alcohol is banned.

3. The police response to finding the local IT guy’s head stuck on a pole is to drive around warning people to “stay in your homes and load your guns,” but not explain why.

Bonus factoid: Marijuana grow lamps are effective against vampires. This is due not only to the ultraviolet rays, but to the magical way the lamps’ wattage increases when they are aimed at the undead.

    4. When you are hiding from vampires in a setting where it’s ALWAYS DARK outside, it’s a great idea to always light your hiding place and to never douse or cover that light, even when pulling back curtains to peer outside. Don’t worry, they won’t see the telltale shaft of light.

    5. Being up north and COMPLETELY DARK it’s really damned cold and pretty windy a lot of the time. But not so cold and windy that you can’t walk around without a hood or a hat or even a coat without fear of frostbite.

      I also loved how the same cold that kept planes from landing didn’t seem to affect car engines or generators.
