We probably all know people whose main reason for using email is to forward jokes and such. Usually I delete them without looking or reading what they have to say, however one arrived yesterday that has me simultaneously intrigued and perplexed. It contains a four photograph sequence showing a guy placing a rather large bottle rocket between his butt cheeks, another guy lighting it, the look of surprise when he tilts his upper body back therefore blocking any liftoff after ignition and the “end” result as it is sprayed with water.(I would guess some third degree burns) The whole idea is beyond me. Then I thought if one person would try it others probably have. Sure enough, Google turned up other instances, once of which made it as a video on to the Internet. Same basic results. The tightening of butt cheeks around any nearby object during periods of stress must be a natural reflex. However, if you hold onto the stick end of a bottle rocket, guess what? It stays put after it ignites.

On an unrelated note, do all Target stores have their corporate logo painted on the roof? Flying to Syracuse from Charlotte thru Atlanta I noticed this several times. I guess Target isn’t worried about pilots who mentally “snap” in flight and start looking for something to crash into. Let’s see, what should I aim for? Oh, there’s a large red bulls eye!

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
