I am actually a bit embarrassed about this section, which is 'where it all
began'.  I  sunk too deep in frames when I started working on it  back  in
September/October 2002.

*LOL*  Nice  story nontheless. The mischievous things we all do as  young-
sters... even at the age of 18, my friends and I was were tempted to throw
some small cones at the Burger King's glass shielding and see the response
from  people around the scene. It can be pretty fun when you overlook  the
branch  from  100  feet above, next to a very steep slope that  makes  you
merely invisible.
