    Those of you in the UK: almost time to celebrate the 237th anniversary of being free of us.

    Fellow Yanks: some of you will remember what our Founding Fathers did and stood for. Some of you will think they were all Southern Baptists. And the rest of you will drink and blow **** up anyway.

    And passing along what my friend who is an ER nurse puts as her FB status every year: "If you're going to behave like a ****ing idiot with the fireworks, please put your severed fingers on ice before bringing them to me."

    [srs part of this post] I'm taking my kids to one of the smaller area parades in the morning, we do this every year. At the end of the parade, the firefighters bring the trucks out, turn on the hoses and everyone runs around in the spray in their swimsuits and has a good time. Then we head over to Cold Stone for ice cream.

    I don't know about you guys but I will still be celebrating the Freedom of the Egyptian people thanks to their long-standing military establishment.

    IMO, I wish folks would just celebrate the 4th...on the 4th...and reduce the number of times I get woken up in the middle of the night by their wannabe firecrackers.

    This very much this. Idiots with fireworks is why I've been joyful when it pours down rain in recent 4ths.

    Congratulations on your ill-conceived notion to cede from the Empire so many years ago. As a result, your use of the language has deteriorated to the level of a child; and you play ridiculous sports.

    Send her victorious, happy and glorious, long to reign over us; God save The Queen.

    Just the other day I found a book on kindle (for free! Thank you Amazon!) that's a historical fiction novel set from the perspective of a Loyalist family in Philadelphia and their struggles during the Revolution. I'll be reading that tomorrow. [face_flag]

    Juliet. You like wrestling. You have the single worst taste in music in history, ever. You are in no position to judge.

    Plus, have you seen the US Top Gear? Mind numbing drek.

    Watched a few minutes of the US one and for the third time ever, I actually agree with you on it being mind numbing and dreadful. It was also cancelled recently.

    Good. Any regional variant of Top Gear is awful. Though part of me wants to see how Top Gear Russia works. Given how Russian drive, which is why they lost the cold war. [face_flag]

    July 4th is great. We declare independence from Britain, and we crush Vicksburg and Southerners on that day. Perfect holiday for a Yankee American like me.

    It'll be interesting to see what kind of Darwinian firework fails the idiots that do them post on YouTube over the next week.

    The only "fail" is the sentence structure of your post.
