I am not the most patriotic of people, but I do love me some fireworks. But what I really hate is going down to the park (or any other good viewing spot) and being elbow to armpit with the rest of the citizens of my fair city to watch them.

But the last few years, someone has done a live feed of them from the internet. So I can watch them in real time without ever leaving the comfort of my couch.

It's a great time to be alive, in that respect.

America is a shithole country! Down with capitalism! The workers will rise and take over the means of production! Hang the idiots who keep me up half the night with fireworks!
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Fierce, cunning, tenacious, fearless.

And yet, they have BEAKS! Not to mention a lack of opposable thumbs.

Stupid fuckers. One well aimed 12 gauge round and bang! Dinner for the cats. :)

Never shot one but a falconer friend had a permit to keep a red tailed hawk. He wore leather welding gloves. Opposable thumbs? Really? This bird saw a rabbit fully a quarter mile away. Who knew that rabbits could scream?

Damnit Fid, I said thumbs, not fucking claws!

Screaming while being torn apart isn't uncommon. Except for you and AA perhaps. You guys just jiz in your pants. :)
