Fireworks safety demonstration showed what a firework could do to this watermelon. Eric Reed for Patch.

You can't just say there are a record number of injuries and leave it that. In reality the amountRead More of fireworks sold increases each year. The number of injuries per 100,000 pounds of fireworks sold is down dramatically since 1980. http://i.imgur.com/5vDu6Bl.png

The only thing I know of that is legal in Maryland are illegal aliens

The article above seems misleading. I have always been led to believe that only ground based itemsRead More are allowed in Baltimore County. No exploding types. Now I'm confused.

I pulled a 3 foot shark out of the water a couple days before the attack. It was struggling in theRead More surf. A lifeguard helped me save it and get it safely back into the ocean. I talked to Fish & Wildlife here in Delaware and they said they think it was probably a juvenile sandbar shark, but don't think it was the same shark that attacked the teen because it was probably ill. But, ironic that it was a couple days before the attack. The shark did not try to attack me when I saved it. I pulled it in by its tail in about 5 feet of water. I have a pic I can send in to you if you want it.

Wow, punching the shark didn't make it let go. But sticking the boys thumb in its mouth did. GladRead More he is ok. That is a nice beach and park.

Starter fuel? Good tips... but why not "consider using a chimney instead of starterRead More fuel". Works fast and without lighter fluid.

I use an electric charcoal starter. Requires no fluid and no need for match-light style charcoal.Read More My dad used one of these my entire childhood, so I've always thought they were the norm.

Did you people even bother reading the article? It says exactly what you're saying - beaches in SCRead More and FL are ahead of Ocean City.

Good point Jag, people just like to bitch, they must be depressed.
