How are all you Brits and maybe Aussies celebrating? Bonfires? For people that don't know:

Also, Epic Fail Guy is Guy Fawkes.

Totally forgot about Bonfire Night

I didn't do halloween either because I was at a gig... I'm gonna make one helluva fire this weekend!!
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some of us crash land, some of us eject...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I can think of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

A penny loaf to feed the Pope
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A fagot of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.
Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah hoorah!

HUZZAH!
HAPPY GUY FAWKES DAY!

We picked up a large amount of fireworks from a friend of a friend at a discount rate. They look pretty hardcore, so the plan is to drink beer and throw them at reach other, then head to the pub for more beer.

I'm annoyed with the damn noise already

I have to leave my window open because I'm always warm, if i close it it'll give me a headache from the heat, and it drowns out my TV (can't turn it on too loud because I live with my parents still)

I have to set up an entire proper party, like cooking, making garden look pretty and sh*t


And lemme guess, it's raining too?

There's a fair few fireworks going off. I love the smell of bonfires though. Not many people actually put Guy Fawkes on there bonfires though

I don't get it; do you celebrate him or burn him? Or a bit of both?

Traditionally, you have a bonfire and burn him

I'm sure his intentions were specifically to remind a person he has never even met of an event he didn't even know happened.

Columbus died believing he found a western route to India.


Everyone else knew he just found a new land.


Columbus was an idiot.

Ah normally near me there are a lot of fireworks before/after the 5th so they can be on saturdays and stuff, and so they don't conflict with other ones.

I was gonna go to a big display last saturday but it was pissing it down with rain so I thought screw that!

Ah I enjoy them though

Hehe. I think it's pretty funny we're celebrating a guy failing to overthrow the government.

Well I just watched a program about it and apparently back when it happened parliament or the churches or someone made his failure be celebrated every year so to big themselves up i guess (you can see I wasn't paying much attention!)

But nowadays people are allowed to think more rebelliously against their government; back then you would've been killed!

I think I shall celebrate this quite wonderful day by watching V for Vendetta.
