Fireworks. So much research and money go into them, only to burn in two seconds to create pretty colours in the air above us. Yet it remains a forever long tradition every time a new year rolls around.
Did some orienteering with a few of the guys and gals from work a few weeks back. Took us up the Long Mynd and down again. Hot day by England's standards and was very grateful to find our managing director at the top with a barbecue.
Taking the train back to Shrewsbury we were treated to a boat trip down the River Severn with drinks before a HUGE meal.
This is true. I am 15 years old, and I am using a knife for tricks and to cut food. Also after a couple of days, I will be 16. Dad told me, that he will bring me to a shooting range. I already know that the shooting in Counter-Strike won't get me ready for the shooting with a real Glock. There is recoil, but in your hands. So, in conclusion, live your life. 🔫☺🔪
I understand the proclivity to try/do crazy stuff at that age... or at any age really if you have the inclination to do it (or if your're Colin Furze). At about 16-17 I tried a hydrogen making experiment in a beer bottle and lit it up thinking it will burn with a steady flame. It nearly blew my face off.
My advice is not to back up from these kind of things, but to think beforehand exactly how much risk you're exposing yourself and others to and taking all the necessary measures to minimize those risks. If your gut is telling you this might not end well, then listen to that instinct. And of course, don't do anything so stupid that it ends up hurting not only you, but others (random example: flying a RC plane without any training in an area with people - that's stupid and there are probably legal consequences if someone gets hurt). Today's safety culture is both a blessing and a curse that just dumbs down children's curiosity to understand and be fascinated by the world.
Oh, she's beautiful! I really miss living with cats. Grew up my entire life without them but I lived with a roommate who had three of them one year and it was really nice to have them around.
There's one cat I keep seeing across the street when I'm outside tossing stuff in the dumpsters or handling beer bottle returns at work but I'm always busy and usually have dirty hands so I can't go over and pet them.
