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 ;)

I was a freshman in college and very worried about my grades because my parents were paying my tuition and told me if I didn't do well I would have to pay the tuition myself. I really wanted them to know I took this expensive education seriouly.
I had a really cool english teacher who was pretty casual about things. He was getting ready to test us on grammer principles and things relating to that. He went over the review and kept telling the class we didn't need to study because the information was so basic that 1st grades could wing it.
When I got home I went over the materials and burst into tears because it looked so difficult to me. I thought about what an idiot I was that 1st grade material look extremely hard. I was so scared about looking completely stupid in clas,s so I studied for 3 days, staying up until the wee hours memorizing the info. My friends all talked about how relieved they were to have one less thing to study for thanks to our wonderful english teacher. I didn't say a thing.
Well, testing day arrived and I felt confident I had finally mastered first grade grammer that somehow I missed way back in first grade. I wizzed through the test and was so relieved that no one would find out what a dumb blonde I really was.
The following day the results were in! Much to my shock I was the ONLY person to even pass the test! I got 100% while eveyone else failed. The teacher thought I was brillant. He couldn' understand why no one else passed. Maybe because he told us not to study? Anyway, I learned it never hurts to study even basic things in life.

This would not be a big deal, but the math teacher used to hate and
refused to allow any jackets in the room, even though it was kind of
cold in there once and a while.

She was going along teaching, when she basically tripped a little and
picked it up..

The jacket obviously was mine and had my name on it.

Kevin and Dave Clingan just laughed and laughed.

We used to do other things in that class like always would call on
each other. If you answer a question right, you picked the next
person to answer.

Kev would always reply "CLINGAN!!!" in such a funny manner.

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..
