Schenectady police believe the shot was fired carelessly by someone celebrating the Fourth of July
I'll say. Target acquisition people. Hit what you aim at damnit! It's between the eyes you morons.

I know of some people who need a piece of lead in their head.

Ah, the mighty .22 strikes again. And no-one noticed...

Yep. What goes up must come down, unless it's powered by a sub-galactic magnetic-resistance drive unit. That's the problem with low IQ rednecks + booze + guns + holidays - someone is bound to get hurt.

That's sorta like that one story about the lady who was in her car and her buscits exploded and hit her in the back of the head.. she reached back and felt her 'brains' falling out and thought she was dying. You think she'd realize her brains weren't falling out when she didn't see blood.. but if your cought up in the moment... guess you don't think about it huh?
anyways , it's pretty funny that someone would be celebrating the 4th with a gun.. Maybe they were experimenting with new ways to shoot off the rockets.. hrm.

No, Siiimmz, it's atually pretty common in a lot of redneck areas to celebrate random events by firing guns up into the air. Ah, alcohol and guns. <sigh> And I can't even claim it's just Americans, because I lived in a place in Canada where this would happen every new year's. We'd usually get one or two serious injuries from falling bullets each year.

well, i live in a pretty redneck area... i don't 'reckon' i heard any gun shooting going on. but im sure there was. In all reality it happens a lot more than I'd like to imagine.

Go Rednecks with alcohol and guns, yay!

Every New Years I notice all the local news stations remind people not to shoot their guns in the air. God bless Texas.

> her buscits exploded

Siiimmz: I'm trying to picture this. What exploded? Do you mean biscuits, and, if so, why would biscuits explode? Help me out here.

Firing guns into the sky isn't just for white folks. Some members of the latino community here in LA think it's fun to do at midnight on New Year's Eve. Arriba!

If this is the Schenectady that I know it isn't redneck at all...nore of a blue-collar type of place with GE bing the center of business. However, gawdamn, that is definitely celebrating the 4th. Problem some shiznit from NYC on a drug run having a laugh...

"Schenectady police believe the shot was fired carelessly by someone celebrating the Fourth of July."

This can only happen in the US... or maybe in Afghanistan..

You know those canned buiscuts that you by in the store. Those things are scary as hell. You have to peel them just a bit to open them then *BA BAM!* you have doughy bread.

Biscuits, people...BISCUITS!!!
2001-07-09 09:06:50 PM  
The biscuit story is another fine urban legend. It is listed on the Snopes site, if I am not mistaken.
