Because everyone is outside blowing up beer and drinking fireworks?

Well, most US time zones can't really enjoy fireworks yet. But we can totally get our day drunk on.

I was walking with my girls as they rode in a wagon behind my fathers tractor. The parade went around a park with a total circumference of 3/4 of a mile. It took 97 minutes and 6 bags of candy to get around. The Boyscout troop behind us went through 22 bags of candy.

Im pretty sure this parade is brought to us by the local dentist office.

I blew stuff up and ate BBQ and pie. I would say my faux-Americano duties have been met.

Now I crumple in a pile of OHGODOHGOD FOOD THAT HAS BEEN PROCESSED WITH PRESERVATIVES THAT I OBVIOUSLY CAN'T HANDLE while telling myself video games > sleep is a good idea.

I slept til 1PM and left for work at 3.

I hardly ever do anything special. The closest thing I would have done was color my ME3 multiplayer characters red, white and blue.

Yeah, Brad - that video is why when I lived in Iowa, the public was not permitted anything pyrotechnic besides sparklers and glowworms. :(

@Brad: I dread to think how many of those people didn't walk away from those things intact. Still laughed my ass off though XD (I'm a horrible person)

I just thought "cause & effect: cause - acting recklessly with fireworks, effect - self-harm" :|

Not exactly a barbecue and fireworks, but I spent July 4th at a gig. Specifically the Unsane Big Business double header mentioned in the music thread. A reflection while waiting for the bands; there can be nothing more American than a crafty assclown under a dark, dank, Brummie rail arch in the bucketing rain.
