    What’s funny is my cat will get on the roof of the greenhouse and watch lightning, but she doesn’t like the sound of fireworks.

    I remember a trick question:Is there a Fourth of July in England?
    Of course there is.
    (It’s just not a holiday … or a different one)

    Usually I tell that one like this:
    A: Do they have Fourth of July in England?
    B: No, of course not, it is a US holiday
    C: Then how do they get from July 3rd to July 5th?? :)

    I was ten. It was raining on the 4th. Tried launching a rocket up the fireplace chimney. Forgot about the damper thingy. That was exciting. Local fire department decided I was insane and needed parental guidance.

    Fireplaces seem to be a coastal thing, we didn’t have them in Illinois. Or fireworks for that matter. Only sparklers and snakes. Of course, every year someone picked up the wrong end of a burning sparkler.

    got to love this nation of ours. we celebrate our independence from england by blowing up a chunk of it every year, even if we still have a special relationship with england(so much so, that we follow their royal family).

    It was suggested that the 4th be celebrated by music and fanfare (fireworks and such) to celebrate our declaration of independence and winning our freedom becoming a new nation.
    It was nothing personal against Britain. It was just the colonists were being treated as inferiors with no rights or justice considering most were from England or living under English blessings.
    The idea was No Taxation without Representation. Colonists had no voice in Parliament so that was a driving force behind the rebellion. It was expected to be a diplomatic solution.

    “Here, hold my beer. I’m gonna try somethin’.”
    Does that translate?

    4th of July in England is known as The Revolt of the Colonies.

    When a teenager, I tryed to throw a firecracker out a moving car window at a teachers house. The window was closed. What a mess.

    When I was young and stupid, a few of us drove out into the country, stopped by a field where cows were grazing and slingshotted a cherry bomb over the cows. When it went off the area was lit up and the look on the cows’ faces was classic. Remember, I said I was stupid, OK?

    Of course we had fireplaces in Illinois. Came in very useful when the winter snow-storms or March ice-storms pulled down the power lines.
