I think there's a Dog Soldiers reference in the latest Dresden Files book.

Evidence:

She pressed the edges of the wound together, letting out a breathy curse in a language I didn't know. "Did you know", she said, "that this kind of glue was originally developed as an emergency battlefield suture?"

"Did you know that you're about to find out what I had for breakfast this morning?" I countered.

"I don't know if it's true", she continued. "I saw it in a movie. With - dammit - with werewolves." She exhaled and drew her hands slowly from the wound. Another two or three inches of puckered flesh were now closed together. Gard looked awful, her face grey and lined with pain.


I'm not misremembering, right?

Not only that, but Gard is (somewhat) correct about it.

I suspect I knew this because you told me at some point. If my brain was organized in folders, I'd have one labeled "Weird crap I know from living with Nute."

1. Superglue has medical uses.
2. You can make tear gas in your kitchen.
3. How to tape broken ribs.
4. How to treat someone with a concussion.
5. How to treat severe sunburn.
6. How to treat alcohol poisoning.

... I sense a theme here.

7. How to tie ANYTHING to anything else.
8. MRE's are full of delicious peanut butter.

I knew that one already. It's like removing splinters.

More so. He'd gotten a bottle of hot sauce for Christmas, and that plus some chopped onion in a pan and ... I forget what else. It was more then just onion (which actually I have to get well into the second onion before I start tearing up. Isn't that odd?)

Close. Capsicum-infused oil on an unseasoned wok. So when the onions were added, the water that sweated out of the onions picked up the pepper particles and suspended them in the steam, and then the other vegetables were frozen when they were added, creating a larger cloud of steam-and-hot-pepper, which basically meant "Evacuate noooooow!"

... you know, really, someone (Remy, maybe) should do that to someone in a kitchen. It'd have to be one of the spice nuts who also knows how to hurt people and has a decent kitchen. So really, Remy, Cain, Pete, maybe Doug or Amanda... maybe Dani in a pinch. (The aftermath logs for that would be very goddamn funny. Forge: you.. made tear gas. Dani: I did? I just figured that hot oil in steam would hurt their eyes. Forge: That's what tear gas IS.
