The Beast. This is one of many times I almost lost my beast of a car. For those who never seen my car let me describe it for you. It was a 1984 Buick LeSabre. Literally a box on wheel. Fit 3 people in the front and 4 or 5 people in the back. Comfortably. And I?m sure like 5 bodies in the trunk. ? not that I tried or anything?.hehehe..Well In the winter it became my 1000 lbs sled as I attempted to stay on the road.
Well on this particular day we wanted to go sledding so we drove down to the lake were the best hill in the area was. Of course, rather then park a safe distance away I parked right on the hill and slid down into a snow bank. Being the bright guy that I was, I figure if I floored it I could get out. Well it turns out when you floor a rear wheel drive car on ice it just fish tails all over the place. This not only took me out of the snow bank, but brought me inches from the edge of a cliff which was just over the lake. I thought I was done for. My . . . Read More..

Every kid goes through a pyro phase right? And you know that if it involves something that you shouldn't o as a kid...me and Sean were all in. About the time that we found the anarchist's cookbook online ( I was in 7th grade and Sean in 5th) we had a lot of tricks up our sleeve.

We found this one entry about a liquid that burned hotter and longer than gasoline, it is called naepalm ( I botched the spelling there). So we added styrofoam to gasoline until it stopped dissolving and we had naepalm in an old can in the back of my dad's house.

we started by lighting small amounts and watching it burn until we accidentilly spilled the can of flammabile liquid all over the sidewalk.

This was no joke, next thing I knew there were flames on the sidewalk 10 feet tall! One of ran and grabbed the hose after the laughter dies down and we realized this was deep crap and the could catch on fire any minute. The water from the hose just seemed to spread the giant flames that were quickly out of . . . Read More..

Derek Bannasch and I used to do student announcements over the PA in the morning.  We were very eccentric and dramatic with our announcements.  We aspired to achieve the fame of last year's announcing team of Jim Territo and Brandon Williams.

Once, at the closing of the announcements, they signed off by saying "These announcements have been brought to you by Rudy's Meat Market: nobody beats our meat".  Unfortunately for them, they were no longer allowed to give the announcements.

So one morning we closed our announcements by saying "These announcements have been brought to you by Rudy's Meat Market" and that was it.  When I turned around I saw that one of the staff was frowning and they scolded us.

Just to prove that I am the dorkiest user on the site, I have scanned official documents to back up my story ;)

It was the end of my senior year of high school, I was 18 -years-old. A little background: I moved to Springfield in October of my senior year because my dad got transferred from his job. I was pretty fine with the move because for one thing, I had moved alot in my life, I didn't care for the small town of Kirksville, Missouri we moved from, and I loved meeting new people.
I was sitting at home bored one Friday afternoon and thought I would call my girlfriend Julie and see what she was up to. At this point I had never met Jeff, but he answered Julie's phone with "Hi, you have reached Boston Market, Julie speaking." I was really puzzled and told him I had the wrong number. Jeff laughed and told me he would get Julie on the phone for me. When Julie answered she told me that her friend Jeff was over and he was joking around. Julie told me she was going to the movies with her boyfriend Jake, and their friend, Jeff, and she invited me to join them.

I?m going to leave out all the names in this one but it kind of funny. Something only 4 teenagers that are bored would do. Well to set the mood it was winter in Michigan. About 6 inches or more snow on the ground and the roads were covered in ice. A few of us wanted to get together and have a fest. A fest is a video game get together were we just played 4 player battle games for hours on end after school. Well one friend, who will remain nameless, wanted to stay home and make a snowman. Well we weren?t going to have any of that. So later that day we went over to his house and beat down his snowman with a bat.
The next day we went to school and bragged about how we demolished his snowman. He said that he built it back up already. This just pissed us off. So after school we rushed over to his house only to see his snowman standing there but it was turned to ice. He actually covered it with water. And it froze.
Rather than destroy it again we needed to really send him a . . . Read More..
