Default Fireworks suck.

I hate the 4th of July. It's supposed to be a special holiday for American's to remind us of when we gained our independence from Britain, and more importantly, founded our nation.

But I have to work tommorrow and every redneck jackass in my neighborhood is setting off fireworks (illegally) while I need to be asleep.

WTF is so exciting about something making a loud noise, or colors in the sky?

Christ, somebody hand them all some LCD so I can sleep.

Couldn't we have started a QUIET tradition?

I just saw some great fireworks. The actual official displays are really cool. The kids buying em and setting em off are a little annoying however.

HA! One bad night you say! The NBA Finals didn't even start until 9p.m. here! That was 4 days of my life that everyone hated me the next morning.

I'm usually ok to get up for work, but about 4 pm after I get home from work, I'm about ready to crash for a nap, and then I can't sleep that night either.

EDIT: Just when you think the bastards are done, they start up again. And the heat isn't helping. Need a/c.

And DON rain is the wettest kind of rain. All other types of rain are dry as sand compared to DON rain.

Everyone needs a little LCD to keep them from popping fireworks
