I keep forgetting it's the 4th of July this week and then someone reminds me and I'm like "fuck."
I don't like the 4th of July. In fact, I hate it. Yes, it celebrates our independence, but when did fucking goddamn fireworks come into play for the ENTIRE FUCKING HOLIDAY?!
Fireworks used to be illegal to sell here in parts of AZ because of, you know, the whole, it's a goddamn desert and it's 115 degrees outside with 4% humidity, so hey, let's not make it any easier to set the entire state on fire.
Alas, the goddamn "true 'mericans" bitched and moaned and now they're legal. NO. Our climate and terrain didn't magically change, it's actually drier, people just really like to set shit on fire and watch it explode in the sky for all of like 2 seconds.
It's just another holiday that America has made all about food and fire. Because, why not?
