Rule #435 (Beginning of Living Like John McClane Week)

Those of you who know me know that I love Die Hard and its titular main character, John McClane. Since I've shown you how to live like a supervillain, I thought this week I'd show you how to live like a foul-mouthed, anti-hero who isn't afraid to get a little blood on his hands. Shall we?

Living Like John McClane Rule #1:

Shoot first and ask questions later (assuming you left anyone alive [although, for John McClane's interrogation techniques*, this isn't technically necessary]).
