Heh damn. Ok I was in highschool back then. My gf's parents hated my ass, so on saturday mornings when her parents went to the supermarket she stayed home alone so I'd go there while they were out. I lived about 10minutes away from her on foot. So i always walked there. And this time, we were there you know all nice and cozy when suddenly her parents get home and they honk the horn. I was scared ****LESS! So I went out the side door and there was this huge fence with spikes on top. I was in some surfing shorts, so I try to jump over the fence at the same time the car is getting IN the driveway, so they wont see me. Me being so nervous I rip my shorts off with a spike, fell to the floor, picked up some pieces of my shorts and just ran like hell. Had to go home running, almost naked through a public avenue to reach the neighborhood where I lived in.
And then my mom caught me running thru the ave. and asked all worried what was up. I told her a dog had attacked me and she believed it

Just remembered. My friend was a paperboy back in highschool. And i always helped him at it. This day his brother was giving us a ride in his car so we wouldnt have to walk everywhere. So the next car to throw the paper at was at the end of the street so my friend jumps in the car's hood. The car starts to leave and I run and jump at it too, while moving. I didnt get a good grip. So he goes faster, and I was loosing my grip and was yelling him to stop but he couldn't hear. At about 45mph I couldnt grip anymore so I flew off the hood

I left quite a nice portion of my body's left side skin on the pavement. And the friction had left me naked, my pants were on my ankles and my briefs were on my knees, damn

It wasn't as fun back then when i was bleeding but oh well, you actually DO LEARN

ps. some things anyway

Have a Nice Day?

Ok, when you are a kid on the 4th of july and Dad takes the pliers and breaks down the base of a Piccalo Pete so that when it does it's thing it blows up at the end of the whistle, nice little pop.

Well expand on that: Take entire flat of 24 Piccalo Petes (which were about the only thing you could get at stands due to strict fireworks laws) and painstaikingly strip all of the cardboard off of the "whistle propellant" and mortar-and-pestle then whole mess into a fine powder. Wrap in a paper towel, and wrap almost a full roll of duct-tape around it, as tight as possible. Make a damn-long fuse from 24 Piccalo Pete fuses and stick into 2-lb silver explosive. Hmmm... maybe that's not enough Place said explosive in center of 3-lb coffee can, pack Black Cat firecrackers and Bottle Rockets into space around it. There, that will do fine!

We took our "creation" to a friends house and set it under a street lamp in front of his house. Light Fuse and Get Away. We had long enought to go sit on his porch and gather everyone from in the house to watch.

T H U U M P

The fireball, well, mushroom cloud engulfed the streetlight (there are still black-marks to this day), then all the firecrackers went off, then all the bottle rockets went off.

I remember the neighbor coming out of his house and saying "I don't know what the hell that was, but it sure as hell was not legal!"

We spent the rest of the evening bouncing well-aimed bottle rockets off of his front room picture window...


That was the *best* of the explosives we built, but by far not the only one. Model Rokets. Cannons. Model Rocket Cannons. Etc.

My first car was a Geo Metro as you can imagine I didn't really care much about the car so whenever it snowed my brother and I would always go driving, all thing being said that little metro actually handled pretty well in the snow....anyway on one small road we went too slow and got stuck in some really deep snow so we had to get out and push (my brother and I) well stupid us we should have just got it turned around instead of trying to push it UP a hill. We get to the top only to have the car slide right past us while we were resting and go all the way back down the hill off the road into a field and finally into an old frozen creek (ice didnt' break thank god) we had to wait about 2 weeks for the snow to melt so we could get a tow truck to the field to get it out.

Second.....my older brother and I (different brother this time) were outside at about 3 in the morning just staying up late for fun, anyway we had found a bug metal barrel out in the wood earlier that day (lid included!) and came up with the bright idea of filling it with gas and throwing a lit match inside, this was a pretty big barrel mind you. So we get the gas in there light a match and throw it in. Now when by bro threw the match in I was initially about 5 feet away from thr barrel and somehow ended up about 10 feet from the barrel. The noise the exploding barrel made was enough to shatter a couple windows in the neighborhood, and throw my brother back a good ten feet....needless to say all the neighbors came out people called the police and we got in a lot of trouble. I wouldn't recommend doing this

Sean, a strobe light set at 14Hz (10Hz in some areas, also) will do the job beautifully! Trust me, I designed a unit that creates this falsh pattern for an emergency lighting company that I used to work for.

Yeah, the frequency depends on the strobe. It was years ago so I can't remember the exact pattern, but it was like morse code where dashes are slow and dots are fast. Like, --..--..-.--..--..-. etc. So, a solid strobe set at 10Hz or 14Hz didn't do it.

I don't think the statute of limitations has run out on my crimes, so I'll have to keep my mouth shut..but as you can probably guess, they involve guns, bombs, and fire...and lots of stolen things.

oh man..remind not to upset any of you people.

well since everyone likes a good fire story. heres one about three teenage boys (my little brother, my cousin and me). We were camping out at my cousins one night and had a fire going. Well it just rained so we had alot of trouble getting the fire going. So my cousin decides to get some gas (bad idea 1). The best part is what he puts the gas in...remember those plastic little hug containers???(bad idea 2). So we pour all the gas on a fire and a neighbor girl goes to light the fire with her lighter...fortunaetly I stop her and throw a match from two feet away and woosh a nice 4 foot flame shoots up (bad idea no. 3) Well since the wood is wet the fire won't go for much more than a few minutes. So my cousin keeps putting on more gas from a safe distance (if there is such one). He has to run up to the house to grab something and the fire goes dead. So my little brother thinking away grabs one of the hugs and start pouring it on the fire from about 3-6 inches away..can you gues what happened...yes the container caught on fire...cuz where he threw it?? A nice big pile of leaves....cuz he stepped on it to put it out....guess who was wearing shorts??? guess what spread up my leg...a nice bon fire.

I know not as good as some of the other..but still funny now that I look back.

Sean, BZZZZZZZ, wrong answer. We sold them to police stations all over the country and they worked. It is a steady 14Hz pulse. I think the reason it worked is because one of the pulse combinations was at 14Hz. They are quite picky as well, +/- .1Hz would not work.

Ohhh Geez....
Ok....@ 14 I "borrowed" my father's rare Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce Nikki Lauda Special Edition and cruised around buying beer @ the local Gulf gas station...(who sold it to us)...
I and my friends did that all summer until "the big bust" when my mother's boss saw me cruising around town with the top down and shades on...(GOD I thought I was the *****)
He told her and she came home and hid her truck behind the house so I didn't see...then she searched my room while I was still gone...found the 6 pack of Coors Extra Gold (remember that stuff?) and quart of Busch that was iced down in a cooler waiting for the party that night which I would sneek out for...also found my fireworks, butterfly knife, and bb pistol...all that was not allowed...?!
When I pulled into the garage I saw her truck...BOY did that suck...I went in through the front door...she was waiting there fuming...MAN there's nothin' like an Italian mother pissed off...that was 13 years ago and I still hear about it now and then...LOL
Of course I was grounded forever...then the following weekend I was gonna go to a party so I snuck out...then got busted as I was sneeking off...ugh?! My buddies got caught also...obviously via the phone...
Even though I got busted it was all worth it...
P.S. the above car is what I learned how to drive...whoo hoo!

Exclamation

Subu Wex, considering that I spent the better part of 3 weeks in front of a stoplight, trying to get it to change, I think I would know the limitations. It is very precise. Think of the wavelength of that light, travelling at 30 mph would be a very small percentage of change! We're not talking about sound here.
