I swear before God and all humanity that I was just an innocent bystander to the pyro-hijinks of a 12 year old boy. While playing kick ball in an open field we found a huge toad that had wandered up out of the creek bottom. Nick took out an M80, stuck it in the frogs mouth and BOOM!!! All that was left of the poor thing was it's jaws still holding the burnt remnants of it's demise. I had nightmares of it for a week!

I rode my bike to my friends house one time. When I pulled up he was trying to put out a field fire with a blanket. He was playing with fire . The whole field goes up his sister had no choice but to call the fire department. That was one of those situations Im glad it wasn't me. His old man laid a whoopens on him. So i got to experience a cool fire without the pain

I have worked for Europeans in the past. Punkin-chunkin' cannons absolutely baffle them. Then there are those two good-old-boys in TX who are trying to throw a Buick a mile with a trebuchet. We keep them guessing. No wonder the world is afraid of us crazies.

Ah, my America!

God only knows how many Chemical Engineers cooked their own explosives. I know one who blew several fingers off. And if I didn't wear glasses I would have been blinded at age 12.

Yep - plus some of us learn to switch - heat shields and stuff in the 60's and 70's.

I understand we landed on Mars - using old time religion - shields, chutes and retrorockets.

Makes one warm and smarmy all over - I think I'll go outside and yell - Psssst Wellesley!

heh heh heh - Sanity is overrated. .
