After yesterdays blog that the world should turn to Lite Beer...I'm concerned that America is getting soft in its own country... Sure they are pretty keen in trying out Arms in other peoples deserts...But in the USA its all Waivers and Lawyers and Suing and generally being girlie over everything..
But i am hoping they can come back at me with a genuine limb threatening festival in the USA, other than the suggestion that I could take a walk in Compton LA or attend a Chilli Cook Off..:)
Spain has its Bulls running in Pamplona....and the Tomatina ; tomato throwing festival, Danjiri and Onbishiri in Japan, The Beehive Rocket festival in China even good old UK makes the Top Ten Dangerous Festivals with its Shin Kicking and Cheese Rolling....and if that is not enough you can try going to any Soccer match in the Island any weekend. :))
A new contender for the Top Ten is this doozy from El Salvador to celebrate a Volcano Eruption in 1922. ( what more reason do you need.)
Youths soak balls of rags in gasoline and light them and have what could be the opposite of a snowball fight..
If you want to see it... take a look at this Youtube footage.
So come on America give me some thrills...something i could possibly Die doing while drunk, with out any training or ticket......with hundreds of other people... and all in the name of FUN!!!!!
Sir Dayvd ( In the blue wardrobe of heaven are many unused clothes, too tight-fitting yet too beautiful to throw away. And in that wardrobe we hang our likenesses, yellow diaries yellowed with yesterday, thumb smeared with tomorrow. But the now, the present, like the hollow screech of ancient flamingos in search of shrimps, is still vibrantly shocking pink. ) of Oxfordshire
