On this 4th of July the biggest risk you will be taking is getting behind the wheel of a motorized vehicle. The data says this is true, but I bet you will be thinking about different risks this weekend.
Yesterday I only avoided a head-on collision with an elderly couple because I am a defensive driver prepared to slam on the breaks at the slightest indication of stupidity/distraction/inebriation/being old. I also gave the old man a good 3 second blast of my horn. Despite that, he almost pulled out in front of ANOTHER DRIVER.
Stay safe out there and do what you can to mitigate your risk. For me that means sheltering in place with Legos and enough fireworks to keep the kids entertained.
We are staying here on the ranch for the 4th. Shooting guns and lighting fireworks.
Happy 4th to all you murderers, rapists, beheaders, here in this oppressive capitalist country.
Swede My most permanent memory of combat was fear, gripping fear ,blood, pieces of flesh, then more fear. Now, futility. Eisenhower said it better than me, no need to repeat it. I believe in the good parts of capitalism just not the bad parts. I consider myself a patriot. U.S.A. is the greatest country on earth Happy 4th
Happy 4th everyone…
…and B-Swede, please enjoy/exercise your 2nd Amendment Right…speaking strictly for me, I find putting a well placed group on a target very relaxing…not as good as when I qualified Expert back in the day but…dammed relaxing.
Enjoy the 4th All!
expert on the m-60 machine gun was the most fun. M-14 on big A comes in second. happy fourth to you
