Comments: Not Exactly Weapons of Mass Destruction

After realizing what a spoil-sport you were to these fine boys, I'm compelled to build a marshmallow trebuchet and launch flaming puffed treats at innocent passer's by. I guess it's lucky that I have a job and can't spare the time to build one. OH the wonderful mayhem (and think of the You-Tube Videos!) that I'm missing out on. :^)

Oh, now I KNOW you need Backyard Ballistics. You are morally obligated, now that you are a den mom. Cincinnati fire kites are in your future ...

It's the male factor.

There is a civil war park near my house. It's claim to fame are the flaming pinecone battles the troops had with each other because they were bored. They would light the pinecones and then catapult them at each other.

Arrow of Light, Marshmallow of Fire - does not seem like much of a stretch to me. I actually had a marshmallow of fire incident when I was a Scout leader. There were many scouts sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows. Some people like to catch theirs on fire, and it seems that the most accepted way to put these out before consumption is to wave them around. Well one scout atempted to put his flaming marshmallow out this way and it flew off of his stick and landed right on the side of a nylon tent, which in turn, burned to the ground. Luckily there were no occupants. This is what you have to look forward to, good luck.

Well that was surprising. No, not the flaming marshmallows -- when I read the title of this post, I thought for sure it was going to be a new flatulance tale! :)

Just wait until they try to light THOSE.

My brothers and I once discovered that if you dip cattails in kerosene and light them on fire, it is a lot of fun. Also discovered that you can spray a can of ether into the wood stove. Things we never told my parents ...

Ah... is THAT where my son gets his penchant for lighting things on fire... Red headed boy of Irish extraction that he is... *grin*
