Just Wait Until the Radiation Sickness Kicks In

JackpukeI can sort of understand this one. If you’ve just been released from a Chinese prison a few hours ago and immediately handed over to another enemy, tortured with sharp objects, chomped into an Arabic lackey’s neck and pierced his jugular vein, then were forced to shoot your vengeful colleague to save the life of a terrorist mastermind, you might feel kind of sick to your stomach. But Jack Bauer should’ve held his puke because only seconds after killing Curtis a nuclear bomb goes off  in the near distance (waah, it’s just L.A.). Maybe that’s more of a crap in your pants moment.

I couldn't capture the puking moment because pausing the TV made it too blurry, but in the photo you can see the aftermath all over Jack's hand.

As an aside, I love how 24 can make any ethnicity Arabic. Kumar/Van Wilder’s Taj is playing sleeper cell Muslim, new CTU agent Nadia Yassir is actually Mexican. Season four’s Habib Marwan and Navi Araz were played by South African and Hispanic actors, respectively. Pretty much if you have brown hair you can be Middle Eastern.

    Actually wasn’t (or isn’t) there some concern, or thinly veiled conspiracy theory, that terrorists are coming in through S. America/Mexico? I read a while back that the thought was that they were establishing residency in Mexico and South America, learning Spanish/Portuguese, then coming across passing as Hispanics or Latinos (apologies if I have the terms wrong). Sort of a reverse- engineering of current Hollywood practices.

  2. Peter: Really? You think it’s scar tissue? It does kind of look like that now that I scrutinize the images. I honestly thought it was rivulets of vomit, but that might’ve been wishful thinking on my part.

  3. I simply want to mention I am just beginner to blogging and site-building and certainly loved your blog. Probably I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You really come with fantastic articles. Many thanks for sharing with us your web site.
