Speaking of unexpected booms, there is nothing in the world that will spike your blood pressure quite like this-

Squatting in the desert, looking at a bit of mangled 80 yr old military ordnance, trying to determine if it is still live, trying NOT to kneel on a rattlesnake- when a young pilot driving an F-16 whips up from behind you, at Mach 1.2, 500 feet off the deck, and you suddenly recieve an unexpected BA-BOOM sonic boom.

Funny. Yeah, hilarious. Well, will not need my cardiac stress test THIS year......

Holy crap! With all that swamp gas, all they need is a weather balloon and some static to get that party started.

......swamp gas offers more than a simple explaination....it's a religion.
