4th of July Plans?

Postby Wilgrove » Fri Jun 26, 2009 9:13 pm

So next week is Independence Day in the USA, or 4th of July, what are your plans?

I may go see a Firework show, but that's pretty much it for me. I'm sure my mom side of the family will have a cookout, and I'm also sure I will avoid it.

Drunken debauchery as my exam results come out the day before. Going to get slightly pished for a third (shan't get one, with all luck), fairly pished for a 2:2 (eh possible, sad, though), hammered for a 2:1 (probable) and in hospital for a first (unlikely).
End the Modigarchy now.

Stay at home, be at the computer. That's pretty much it.

Trying to avoid having anything ELSE go wrong on this end of things. Other than that, I honestly have no idea. Usually we'd be going out to fireworks with family, but we took our vacation early and short this year, much good it did us. :blush:

Probably not much. My budget is stretched now, and I'm living in Canada. I may go to see some Canada Day fireworks if I can though (July First, for those who don't know).

That'll probably have to do for both days. Though to be honest, I'm rather celebrate July Fourth. I have no inherent loyalty to any country over any other, but America's independence probably has more historical significance, and I respect many of the ideals that independence gave voice to.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - President Abraham Lincoln.

The Rainbow Gathering in Cuba, New Mexico.
It's a massive hippiefest in a national forest. Yes, I know it sounds like a gay pride parade. No. Hippies. Unfortunately, I won't get to blow shit up... unless I find fireworks there :twisted: I can't wait to see how some random dude on shrooms responds to it.

I've also been making flags to "Sell" there (They have a barter economy. Why not just stick to the good ol' Sammich?)

Obligatory fireworks display at my friend's farm along with bonfire and smores. Also, stargazing and firefly catching and stuff.

I'd rather stay home, but it's important to the kids. :roll:

I think you can chip your kids now, the same way you can chip your pets. Hell I saw an advertisement of some kid running away from his mom, so she pulled out a tracking device and found him.

Cookout, massive quantities of both alcohol and explosives, hopefully I'll still have all my fingers on July 5th.

to remain in my bunker. maybe watch the skybursts out my window, but that's about it.
and play on my computer like any other day of leasure. unless there's something else going on that i get precommited to between now and then, which seems somewhat unlikely on the face of it.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.

As of yet, I'm honestly not sure. Last year I went out to Lake Caddo in a cabin for a week and shot off a shit load of fireworks.

Grill as much meat as possible, for as long as possible. Eat some delicious cheeseburgers and bratwurst, then watch Equilibrium, King of the Hill, and The Big O.

Then I'll post about it on NSG; that's the most important part.

Whilst the simple colonials are looking at pretty bangs and colours in the sky, I will be masterminding the invasion that will catch them unawares and drag them back to the empire, where they belong.

Yeah, you might want to pick another day other than the one where everybody is already outside, liquored up, and with access to explosives. It'll be like the Battle of New Orleans all over again.

Lets see: The British empire is long gone along with Great Britians preeminent position in the world. Lo and behold, who is now the top dog in the world? The simple colonials. Bring it on. :twisted:
