    I remember in my hometown there is this "Pirate Ship" boat tour of the bay you can go on. One time they were out and a pirate pulled out his sword and started waving it , just for the act. A kid got scared and cryed. When the boat got back the dad called the police and filed a lawsuit :( ..pathetic.

    On a side note..the pirates don't carry swords anymore.

    Parents of Girl in Snowball Fight Charged in Shooting

    Posted Feb. 26, 2003 -- A second suspect has been arrested in the shooting that left a 10-year-old girl in critical condition after an innocent snowball fight in Philadelphia last weekend.

    According to the Philadelphia Daily News, police arrested 36-year-old Cynthia Powell Tuesday. Powell is suspected of driving the car the held her common-law husband, Joseph Best, as he allegedly shot into a crowd of children playing in the snow. Best, 32, was arrested Monday.

    Both are charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and other related charges.

    The couple allegedly retaliated after their daughter was hit with a snowball after church on Sunday. Ebony Smith, 10, was shot in the head and is in critical condition after two surgeries. She was not part of the snowball fight, according to reports.

    According to police and published reports, Best's daughter was hit with a snowball as she and her friends walked past a group of girls having a "friendly snowball fight," police Capt. Charles Bloom told reporters.

    A scuffle broke out among a dozen girls, ages 10 to 15, but quickly subsided. Various versions exist of what happened next, but police charge that Best returned at least twice to where the snow battle erupted. The first time he argued with other adults on the scene. He returned again around 5:30 in a car, from which he leaned out the passenger side and fired at least five shots into a group of children playing on the street.

    Police said Ebony was walking home from a store with her mother and sister when she was hit by the random spray of bullets. She had not been involved in any of the previous snowball battles. Friends and neighbors told the Philadelphia Daily News that the girl likes "dressing up" and " screaming, running, playing in the snow." Ebony got As in school this year, her sister said.

    It finally happened.
  18. This is why I play bass. I go onstage and show some people a good time and make myself have the time of my life every time. I love playing, I could play in any band except maybe country.... Once they pull out that honky tonk voice i'm out of the there.

    Seriously though, I think if everyone would just pick up a insturment or do something besides release their anger on other people this world would be a better place.
