Durian, King of Fruits

Durian is an Asian fruit that is covered in spikes, smells really badly, and could be used as a weapon in a fix.  I hadn't heard of the fruit until just before going to this low-key party with this guy:

The durian we had wasn't fresh (so it didn't smell as bad) but I was ok with that.  

Look at those spikes

Here I am taking a bite of this strange fruit

Here is Chausa, our host and durian provider, pulling open the fruit.

Knives are fun.

Taking his little bite

Keith didn't really think it was all that bad. But it still wasn't fresh.

More touching of the dangerous outer shell

Yes, the night ended with karaoke and shoot around, but I don't have gifs of that.

And here are some pictures of snow in flashlight beams.
