  1. This bear was caught trying to escape, enjoy:
  2. Go for it! Live vicariously through your children! 😋 My grandfather had a saying: "The hound would have got the fox if he didn't stop to take a *****." I am not quite sure what that truly means... But I have an idea and I think it sorta fits here. Stop wondering the woulda, coulda, shoulda's of life when the everyday necessities of the world dictate what you do and when you do it. (I) hope I interjected a little (albeit coarse) wisdom on this wonderful morning. If not, hold your poo in and carry on. 😒
  3. Say say say I remember when we used to rock in a project yard in Jersey And little Georgie would make the firelight As stolen cars passed through the night And then we'd hit the corner store for roots, paper, and brew My drink's my only remedy For pain of losing family, but while I'm gone shorty Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright Fugees come to the dance tonight, everything's gonna be alright Everything's gonna be alright Everything's gonna be alright The gun man's in the house tonight But everything's gonna be alright No woman, no cry, no woman no cry Hey little sister don't shed no tears No woman no cry say say say

  5. I buy booze in Illinois and they tell me I can't walk down an Illinois street with an open container! WTF gives! Tyranny!
  6. Who in science uses imperial/SAE measurements? What were those MotoHeads building? A 1966 souped up Dodge Dart? /smh
  7. To me. The term "fireworks" means to fly and have a report (ie: go boom) . But, I guess that is subjective. Place on the ground and watch pretty colors, sure "fireworks." Sparklers that heat up to 1200° Fahrenheit... Sure "fireworks." But when most people say fireworks are "legal They mean the flying ones that end in a boom. Who looks at the ground for fireworks. Now, no doubt there are probably sellers in these states selling certain devices under the table. I guess you probably have to ask the right questions so they don't think you're a cop. Growing up, in UpState New York... We always had a few connections to get the real stuff. People that would make runs to places like Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc... "...The following states permit the sale of ALL or most types of consumer fireworks to residents: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia..." Now. Here is Illinois on Indiana line, they advertise fireworks in Illinois for the Indiana stores. Billboards every where. And I think when you walk into store, you have to pay to join the fireworks lobby. They have a thing for "God" in Indiana. So on Sunday, I get my hard liquor/booze (like Everclear) @ the gas station in IllInois and then make a run across the border to pick up my guns and fireworks in Indiana. Then we pack up the family pick-up and head out to the picnic, but not before saying our prayers first @ church.
  8. Are they selling aerial and exploding types or "novelties?" This doesn't include the up in the air and glorious explosions you make on a daily basis here. From my "go to source" Wiki that @BringBackFergy just simply adores: "Two states — Illinois and Vermont — permits the sale and use of only wire or wood stick sparklers and other novelties. The following states allow the sale and use of non-aerial and non-explosive fireworks (also called "safe and sane") like novelties, fountains and sparklers, etc.: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia... ...New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill on November 21, 2014 allowing sparklers, party poppers, cone fountains and other novelty items to be sold, possessed, and used in the state of New York outside of New York City. Local governments must approve the sale and use of fireworks before people can legally use them. Although the use of fireworks is allowed year-round, the sale of fireworks, by registered businesses, is limited to a period of June 1 through July 5 and December 26 through January 2 each year..." "...Three states — Hawaii, Nevada, and Wyoming — allow each county to establish its own regulations..."
  9. Notice the states that permit exploding and aerial fireworks are FOR THE MOST PART "Red States": The following states permit the sale of all or most types of consumer fireworks to residents: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia. What New York sells are non-exploding, non-aerial novelties: "The following states allow the sale and use of non-aerial and non-explosive fireworks (also called "safe and sane") like novelties, fountains and sparklers, etc.: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia."
  10. The whole "eacape room" thing passed me by. As usual. The wife organized a program @ the library just recently: something about mobile escape rooms. Still don't know what they are. Maybe I should be in the "simple things that confuse thread?"
  11. You know, you're polluting my good friend Cripple Creek's thread! [THIS should get me back into CC's good graces] Stop it or I will report you. LoL... Oh, BTW, Does a bear poop in the woods?
  12. You Sir are a true champion! The Mets organization is taking notice how you bring your A-game! 😁 Ithaca is still in my sphere of influence (but barely). I will try to peer review @BringBackFergy when I am not as busy:
  13. Where does the school come up with the $$$ for this scholarship? What kind of revenue and importance does "track and field" bring in for the school? Pull it out of the hoarded endowment? Where does the money come from? Some can throw well and it warrants a free ride? While somebody gets straight As and is in top tier of their class(and is say a male, gasp I even go there) they get boopkiss? Or, a few crumbs thrown their way. Like everything, if this was 1936 it wouldn't have been a problem. Too many free rides vs. not enough people paying leads to astronomical college costs for few that gotta pay. How is this NOT any different than showing up at the E.R. with no health insurance and the common cold? Then the ones that show up with health insurance get gouged. The dumbing down of society in a jock driven world. I don't get the logic. Maybe it's good (for the rest) that nobody at family level and HS have a clue. ???
