  1. This is actually a common cultural practice among Saudis and Jordanians for celebrating weddings. I personally find it quite mad.

  2. This is how it sounds at midnight on New Year’s Day in Akron, Ohio. I hope no one was injured nearby where the bullets landed. Any idea what made these guys so happy?

    • Here in St. Pete, it’s New Year’s, the Fourth of July, Christmas Eve, and random other nights. We’ve had a couple KIA (killed in assininity) and many wounded by ‘stray bullets’ that somehow slipped their leashes.

      The part I like, from where I live, is the swank condo buildings on the expensive waterfront, from which idiot wealthy white males loose everything from .38s to .308s, with a smattering of 9mm, .223, and 7.62 rounds, many fired “full auto” in 30-round bursts.

      Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!

  3. These guys will run like chickens if someone was shooting back at them.

  4. It’s just 4th of July in some other country. Look at what Americans spend on fireworks every year, and remember that the lusty, dangerous fireworks of today are a faint approximation of what one could buy fifty years ago. Being different may be surprising but that doesn’t make it necessarily evil. The cultural mismatch is in the eye of the beholder. “Parochial” works both directions.

    • JamesL, what goes up must come down. This cultural practice causes hot lead to rain from the sky. I know that celebratory vertical gunfire has killed people in the US, and the laws of physics do not differ in Saudi Arabia.

      • Mary OG, the issue is not the infallibility of gravity, but video media being used to imply that selected other humans are so different from “us”, and therefore crazy, mad, stupid–certainly not OUR equal. There are plenty of You Tube movie examples of vast stupidity attached to a title of humorous southern redneck endearment, or “only in Russia”, or ‘those crazy Norwegians’, or inept military performances, both domestic and foreign, not to mention American extreme sport adrenalin junkies performing another roulette attempt. Separating the stupid act from the social background is what did not happen in this video, which in fact has its impact because it conflates the social background with the stupid act. Obviously the real experiences of expensively kitted and trained US troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Japan, and many many other locations show that the supposedly inept ‘enemy’ our troops expected to fight never showed up and the enemy was instead found to be tough and often tougher and equally inventive, and did not in fact run like chickens. “Never underestimate the enemy” really means never overestimate yourself, which is a strong, and perhaps even intended side effect of this video.

  5. shouldn’t surprises anyone why every powerful nations would want to compete or go to war over controlling these “Retards” and their oil rich lands….

  6. this is the only thing these people can do, the more week inside, the more show off

  7. What a bunch of idiots. Some of them were shooting straight up. Do they not understand gravity?

  8. Invocation for the 2016 Republican Party National Convention ??

  9. Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
    A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
    Then one day he was shootin at some food,
    And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

    Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

    Well the first thing you know ol Jed’s a millionaire,
    Kinfolk said “Jed move away from there”
    Said “Californy is the place you ought to be”
    So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

    Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

    Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
    And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
    You’re all invited back a gain to this locality
    To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

    Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

    Y’all come back now, y’hear?
