   Damn I had all these toys in my arsenal as a kid.  I could have led a full scale invasion of South Beach at the young age of 5.
I despise the song Love is in the Air, you should too.

When I was in the Army, I remember a class one day, besides covering other things, going over the use of Silly String to find trip wires. I think we were taught that in Basic training.

  Naw that was Jimmy Carter and the Mariel boatlift...  I did my invasion on South Beach around 1990, at 11th and Collins avenue to be exact!

   Something must of been wrong with every can of Silly String I ever owned, for some reason it always got in my mother's hair. ;D

When I was younger, my friends and I used to have silly string wars around the apartment building that I lived at during the night.

In the morning when the sun came out, you wouldn't believe the amount of flourescent colored carnage that was draped over everything. We got in so much trouble.
