The San Francisco Baseball Giants beat the Detroit Baseball Tigers last night to win the World Sports Cup, or whatever. To celebrate, thousands of elated San Franciscans poured into the streets to show team spirit by torching piles of garbage and vandalizing city transit vehicles.
While I was initially confused by this odd approach to revelry, it was quickly brought to my attention that few actions convey human joy quite like arson.

Well, alright then.
On an unrelated note, I can't decide how to celebrate my birthday next year. My initial thought was to take a trip, but now I'm leaning toward having a small group of friends over to burn down my apartment.
