How did they chop their firefood? Are you telling me a fucking frontier cabin doesn't have a fucking axe!? OB had a huge knife on his belt.
Last time I counted the already had two and screamed for a third one.
Why wouldn't they? They also just could've nailed one board to the ground and use a broom like pic related.
They also could've improvised something like this.
Am I the only one who wasn't impressed by the blizzard? They made out like you'd be dead if you were out for 10 minutes. I know people who would've done the shit they did barefoot and in shorts.
You're thinking about this all wrong. Sure they could of done any of those things but they didn't because they didn't give a shit about the fucking door. They were there to kill everyone and rescue that dumb bitch. Doing any of the shit you suggest would require more time and effort. Hammering some nails in a board was a quick and easy fix.
It would've taken them less time total to just craft a wedge once than hammering the door shut five times. OB for that matter seemed like a practical guy, consider when he suggested the should set a line to the shitter, and it seems out of character for him to not find a more practical solution. They were staying there for multiple days.
