All this liquid sunshine

with the thunder and lightning accompaniment, puts me to mind of an incident from a few years ago.

At the Resaca reenactment one year, it blew up a bad thunderstorm Saturday afternoon. Everybody that could took refuge in their cars or in a tent. This one idiot (who is a friend of mine, thus he shall remain nameless) had just bought himself a repop 1833 artillery short sword.

This idiot proceeded to run outside the tent and stand in the rain holding that sword up in the air hollering "BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL!"

Lightning hit a tree about a hundred yards away.

The sword was left laying in the mud as he knocked about three people down diving back into the tent.

That boy ain't right.
