My brother is doing the Lion Dance in the parade for the Independence Day in Rowland Heights East LA County.

I was asked to do the drum beating.

I have a bad cold. I excused myself.

I will be doing a little bit Ba Gua Zhang in Laguna beach later today.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Unless your country is rich with oil, then the above unalienable Rights are void and you can expect to be bombed, invaded and forced to think the way we do.

Yeah, and if you go a few generations back, you're all mostly French, Spanish, English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, German, Norse, Czeckoslovakian, Russian, Polish and a good few other nations to boot.

Now could you please all stay in the country y'all so proud of? :D

chief fox, i think you're good people, but that really wasn't necessary on this thread. i don't do politics here and whether or not i agree with you isn't the point. it's still not cool to call a girl fat on her birthday even if its true.

You're right man. Sorry about that. But the 4th of July is all about the Declaration of Independence and it is very interesting to go back and read those words and compare them to the actions of our country today.

I love this country, not because of our actions today but because of the principles that it was founded on.

Sorry about getting all political. Happy birthday USA!

I had a sixer of Lowenbrau, a sixer of Blue Moon, a cup of jack and coke, and a mudslide....All before seeing a 30min city-funded fireworks display over the Mississippi from a 14th floor balcony.

I really did her up....Made Jack Daniel's glazed stake with corn on the cob and a baked potatoe. I soaked some mesquite and applewood in Lowenbrau and tossed them on the charcoals for flavor.

For everyone out that that celebrates their independence on the day of July 4th, I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more"
~ John Adams


He was a couple days off on when the tradition would take hold, but to this day we hold true to the traditional celebrations.

Everyone has problems, but darn its good to be American !

Have fun and be safe, and blow some shiat up!

I read an article.

They have the statue of bruce lee shipped from china a couple years back.

since LA chinatown is kind of crowded.

some local chinese proposed to place the statue in alpine recreation center, a park nearby.

the city of LA already approved.

waiting for a public hearing on july 30th.

the statue is left to right or opposite repilca of the statue in hongkong.

anyhoo

it will be a tourist attraction in the future.

happy 4th day.

Happy Independence Day to those of you in the USA.

And to those in the UK, you can celebrate, too--you are well rid of us.

I'm working, but it's OK--should be a quiet day. No firework displays here (wouldn't be able to see them--no darkness). We do fireworks in November when it's so cold people have to stay in their cars to watch! I won't see a real star in the sky for a couple of months but I looked up at the blue field of stars on our gaudy and unlovely flag and tried to remember what it was about: representative government, no privilege without merit.

We'd better keep fighting.

England should be part of the US, Europe sucks.

europe united as a common market or union

one market, one economy, one monetary system

so as to counter balance against US economy

however, some poorer countries have problems such as greece, dragging everyone else down.

british still using pounds and no euro's.

china is forming economic free trade zone with south east asia and eventually with russia and middle asia

talking about globalization, these days.

yes. China went above Japan in the category of GDP in the first quarter of this year

meaning China is now number 2 only behind US.

china needs to boost domestic consumption by raising salary

and reduce reliance on exporting goods

china is holding more euro's and reducing holding of US green back and US national debts

US somehow has to rein in federal budget deficit

im not really a july 4th person. whilst i do understand the 'independence day' and what that entails, i think its a little old at this point. the people alive today in no way feel the way the people who actually fought for that independence do. im not going to dog on the holiday, i just dont think it really applies anymore. people just use it for the federal holiday now, but few people really deeply in their hearts care about our independence from the kingdom of great britainon that day. (hell most of our citizens probably dont even know the history behind the holiday, we're a self imposed ignorant bunch) they just want to blow stuff up, drink, and get the day off. which is fine, thats very american.

what you should do is get a few packs of those metal sparklers about 70 individual sparklers would work. put them all together like a bundle of sticks, evenly except leave one sparkler sticking out of the center of the bundle about half way. then duct tape the bundle securely all the way around, capping both ends but leaving the extendes sparkler out as a fuse. then light the extended sparkler and run away.

If you hold fireworks in your hands and light em up, you are mentally deficient on every level.

One day, you will lose a finger, maybe two, maybe the whole hand when you get a bad packed rocket and boom goes your hand.

Kids, bring a bucket of sand and for the safety of others, shoot them upwards.

I'm just waiting for some kid to hurt himself with one of those printed firearms.


Personally, I find fireworks to be boring. I'm more of an explosion kinda guy. But I have built many rockets, solid state, liquid and gas. I detonate all of them remotely. Not only that but I hardwire to a reasonable distance then hook up the power source and then ignite remotely from even more distance. The second half is more of a "just because I can" kinda thing. I'm mos def a safety first kinda person, but that hasn't stopped me from blowing **** up! :)

No. Firearms are designed to be held.
Fireworks say right on them, printed for all who can read to see "Stand away when igniting and do not hold in your hand"

A firearm is metal, not cardboard and is designed to contain the explosion within the firing chamber. Chances are much better that you will blow off a finger with a firework than you will with any firearm.

I don't think that will happen. Mainly because I don't think kids can afford the printer required or even a cartridge of the composite. For pete's sake, kids can't even score weed for the most part but desperately wish they were bad ass an such...anyway. lol That's kids for you. Always want to be 10 years older than they are.

I know a police department printed one up and it failed in Alberta. Surprise.
Meanwhile, others have been printed and haven't failed. I personally think the Calgary police print and fail shoot was a bogus display in the hopes of diminishing the truth. Canada isn't good at dealing with such things as personal freedoms, firearms etc.

UofT Grad student printed one and removed the firing pin.
It's an exercise in freedom I think.

Still waiting to see what happens with the UofT unit.

For pete's sake, kids can't even score weed for the most part but desperately wish they were bad ass an such...anyway. lol That's kids for you. Always want to be 10 years older than they are.

I know a police department printed one up and it failed in Alberta. Surprise.
Meanwhile, others have been printed and haven't failed. I personally think the Calgary police print and fail shoot was a bogus display in the hopes of diminishing the truth. Canada isn't good at dealing with such things as personal freedoms, firearms etc.

UofT Grad student printed one and removed the firing pin.
It's an exercise in freedom I think.

Still waiting to see what happens with the UofT unit.

Contrary to popular belief, the process is more than just downloading a cad file and hitting print on your piece of **** 3D cube from staples.

As far as kids not being able to afford the printers... all they need is a parent who has one. They aren't in every home YET. But in 5 years these things will be 300 bucks and the only expensive part will be the ABS.

the printer required to make the gun is a whole lot more than a 1300 printer form staples, you are correct.

you're looking at about a 30 to 40 grand touch just for the printer to get a quality piece out of ot. The composite used is a whole other thing too.

still, I'm going to print all sorts of cool and interesting things when we get one in the shop...:D

I've seen them printed w/ the makerbot. Modified for better edges, of course. But that doesn't cost money, you just need a rudimentary understanding of the process and be able to hack commercial electronics. Nothing fancy, you just basically take all the non essential guts from the inside and attach them to the outside. More heat inside = better edges. The cool thing about the makerbot is that is made for hackers and makers. It doesn't even come assembled. But then that's half the fun :D

Replicator 2, roughly $2300. And 2 colors to boot...

The printer that the original liberator was printed on was about 8 grand.

Give it a few years and they will be more reasonable. But then by then the gun will be much better. That's just a given. If it can be done, it will be done. And it can be done. Thankfully you have to have some tech skills to do it well. So that weeds out a good 2/3 of the population right off the bat. :)

You will love it. Whether you're into building, art, whatever... it's pretty cool to fab that kinda thing locally. CNC's are sweet. So many apps. Pretty soon they will be building our homes. I imagine those are more like a PnP tho. But still....
