The Bad Boys Home!

I grew up about as far as you can get from you and still be in the US and I dreaded the Bad Boys Home!
I was a good boy. Really. I was.

Except for that.
Remember "Big Boom" cannons? They came with this supply of calcium carbide...
It was a science experiment. Nothing more.

All things considered, I'm lucky to have both eyeballs.

I won't mention the formula, but half was castor sugar. The other half I think was sold as a gardening type powder. Awesome stuff. Set it off with small firecrackers.

Those were the days in the old school yard indeed.

I'm from the opposite side. When I say cornfields, I mean my high school mascot was an ear of corn!


Coles County (Mattoon) Illinios for me. Though I have been to the quad cities, I don't ever plan on going back.

No. Really?
I mean, why not a prairie dog or a woodchuck. How can a seed pod be a mascot?

Did you know that blowing up a mailbox is only a Federal offense if it has mail in it? Yeah, lucky me. No mail!

I know of Mattoon. Never been there, but knew some who frolicked that universe! LOL!! They would bring back, well things, every now and then.......
Yah we moved from The QC's over a year ago. I miss it sometimes, but not too much usually! It did have more to do than where I am now though. The cops there however were very corrupt. I knew some from before they went on the force, then after they joined would ask me about things and I was like, Umm, I don't think so!!! I left all those ways back there. Easier now really this way...... But......

I've tried to find a pic through Google for you of the mascot. Quick searching however yields no results.

My freshman year, the football team was on a four year losing streak, (like hadn't won a game in four years, seriously). I mean could you blame them? Our "rival team" was the Trojans. How can an ear of corn compete with that?!

I just read the whole thread too.
I didn't give it a flag, even though it's way past 7 now.

When I read the reply from Phage (where he wrote 'kitteh') I spewed my coffee all over my keyboard!
Almost felt like I woke up in a parallel universe or something.


Thanks for the Sunday morning giggles, everyone!
