This is a couch burning. I do not entirely agree with doing this, but I did have a good time over all that night. I'm not sure if you've ever seen a couch burning but I would advise getting back away from it at least 40-50 feet. It goes up real quick and is toxic. I would say by at the time this picture (the one thats engulfed)was taken when it was burning for maybe a minute.
This got me thinking. In fact a lot of things in your home or apartment burn really well. Like carpet, mattresses, curtains and of course anything wood(Which is almost everything we make or build is made out of). It's not a relief to me that most things in our homes burn so easily. We need to come up with a better material that doesn't burn that fast in our homes. The regulations are not good enough? I'm sure you know all this, but it's a good reminder to be careful if you smoke ciggarettes or when your cooking. It's just one more thing that is going through my mind that I'm concerned about.

I can't stop these thoughts from going through my mind!
Whatever comes to me. Theres more than this to life.
Why are we so obsessed with money? The more some of us have, the more we like to hoard it.
DVD's and CD's are not as great as people think they are. One scratch and it could be the end of it. They say that they have better quality as far as picture or sound, which may be true. But all the VCR tapes and cassette tapes of mine still work. I cannot say the same about my CD's or DVD's. Sure they now have some sort of plastic cover to protect them, but I believe that they should of thought of that before they sold billions of them. Now it appears to me to just be another way of charging us. Shouldn't they be handing the protective covers out? I despise Widescreen movies when there is no option to see it formatted for the screen. When it gives me the hand or a circle with a slash through it basically saying that I can't do something. That really urks me. The worst is when you have no choice but they show you little tid bits of the movie your about to watch. If I wanted to know about the movie, I would simply watch the previews that they force upon me every time I turn on the T.V. Seriously, commercials are enough to make me consider never watching T.V. again.
Did you ever notice commercials are slightly louder?(just pumping it into your brain)
Another problem is too many paid televison infomercials on late at night. Thats when I watch a lot of T.V. I don't think we should have to pay for that or any other channels that are useless.
I'm starting to think Dish Network is worthless too. Everytime a storm passes through it goes out. It also goes out too often to reboot or whatever it does entirely to often. Comcast is not that great either.
All we care about is ourselves. People are rarely nice. Unless, they want something. When was the last time you went out of your way for someone? This is a generalization of course because don't get me wrong, I'm far from being a saint.
I just do not understand the way we are towards each other. A lot of us do not care about the planet, as we are destroying it everyday. We continue to make cars that are bad for the atmosphere. Continue to use gasoline,oil and burn coal. It is not news, that eventually we will run out of these things and then what? When our pockets are full of cash but are unable to breath without a special mask or body suit to protect us from the harm we have done to the planet. Maybe sunblock 3,000 will do the trick to protect us from the sun.I hope I'm not around to say I told you so.
(Under 18 does not apply.)
It's hard to trust anyone you do not know and when exactly do you begin to trust? Most use their own judgement. I try to trust untill they break that trust. A lot of people would say that is a very foollish way to go about it. But I don't really care too much now that I'm older. I cannot go around being paranoid about everyone and everything. I've known too many people that are paranoid about everything. They need to relax because their driving me crazy.
The fact that you have to wear your seatbelt is a little crazy to me. Police will pull you over for it. Shouldn't they be more worried about theft,murder, or anything else illegal? It should be my right or my freedom to wear, or not wear a seatbelt.
Same thing with wearing a helmet. If you are dumb enough not to wear one shouldn't that be your own problem. I assume it's just another way to get money out of us. I may be a little extreme, but it's just my opinion.
Why does it seem the people that work the hardest get paid the least, and the ones that do very little at all get paid more? It depends on the job of course but it's a never ending mystery to me.
Some bosses need to calm down. There's too many that think they are high and almighty. That really irritates me! What makes them so much better. Usually nothing at all.
All right, All right I'm done complaining...Now for some fun.
