    Basically, during the morning into the early afternoon, my parents and I went to the beach. I usually like to catch crabs and stuff, so along the beach area with rocks I managed to catch a few, some of them rather aggressive. However, little did I realize that I forgot to put the SPF 30 on my feet. I suffered with a very strong burn since then. Even at the beach it was so hot it felt like a forest.

    At least there was an upside, well, a big upside, as there were some people walking past me wearing nothing but a :eek: and :D.

    Then we spent the rest of the day indoors and I managed to squeeze in some time on the forums. :cool:

    I nearly nuked my neighbor's house when a rather large bottle rocket when horizontal, not vertical. :D :D

    kept a low profile in ca

    we had that nut in the la airport who opened fire at the airport

    and in no cal near san jose, the hell's angels were possibly at a motorcycle rally with their enemies...outlaws, mongols, banditos, etc. and there was a huge police presence to prevent violonce between the rival gangs

    a man is in a standoff with the california highway patrol in the east bay

    an airplane plowed into some people on the ground in southern california

    not a good day for california

    the rest of the weekend will be less nerve wracking

    I nearly blew up my neighbor's house, :D, but mostly my friends and I blew up plastic gallon containers filled with water. We built our own bottle rocket bazooka out of a black PVC pipe. Fun Stuff! :D

    A-ha! Yeah, I did a small mod on my potato gun (or as i like to call it my starch rapid deployment facilitator) to let it fire multiple bottle rockets. PVC is the best.

    Macrumors needs... a pyro board. :D

    Brilliant. Simply brilliant. :)

    I drank heavily, barbecued by the pool with friends, and passed out in a drunken stupor. God bless America! :D

    I went out on the lake (Yeah, I live in Michigan. THERE ARE JUST TONS OF LAKES! Inland and the Greatlakes but the Greatlakes are a little to big for my 27ft Baja) and it was fun. We shot a lot of fireworks off (ya know the explosive airborn ones :D ) and thats about it.

    I went to a clearing and shot off about 100 single, double, and triple breaks from mortars as well as rockets, mini-helipcopters. All in all about 1500 dollars worth (friends worked at those temporary fireworks stores). Also barbequed and had a few cases of booze as well as Captain and Tequila.

    Only 2 people were hit by fireworks and the seats I took out of my minivan have a big hole in them, but all in all an interesting night that ended with us passed out in the minivans.
