Part of my 4th of July was spent in a hospital emergency room.

Why?

Fingers-Lighter-Lit Flare Sparkler.

My family is having the traditional late dinner barbecue. Neighbors are freely welcome to come over and join in the festivity, which includes firecrackers. We light pretty fountains, flash flares, snakes, smoke bombs, various other flares, and sparklers after we've run out of everything else. It's a time for people to mingle and catch up on summer fun.

Once we run at of good firecrackers, we finish off the barbecue with sparkler play.
I go on light detail for the sparklers using a normal BIC lighter. Some of the neighbors have brought their own sparkles to be lit. This includes our neighbor Tara and her daughter, Ann. Tara gives Ann a sparkler for me to light. She neglects to tell me they are not ordinary sparklers. Tara's sparklers are of the flare variety. Right after being lit, they flare up a trail of colored fire before sparking. No one informed me of this fact. I had to find out for myself.

I lit the flare sparkler and the flare sparkler decided to return the favor for my fingers. :D Thanks, Tara.

Cue me going to the hospital with burns on my hand.

Many others had ended up in the emergency room in various 4th accidents. Most of them involved alcohol.

Diagnosis-
Me: Minor second degree burns on two of my fingers.
Ann: Not hurt, but shaken up. :/
Tara: Apologetic, but still an idiot. WTF? Ann could have been the one with burnt fingers.
Eric: Hauled his drunken ass home. Probably to have a fight with Jess again.

I have Veoh TV player. It lets you watch high quality videos which are longer in length than 30 minutes. This by itself is a sucky business practice by Veoh, but not part of why it is currently pissing me off.

I tried to log-in today only to have an error message come up. 'Invalid username/password. Register to create free account.'

So I retype my username/pass, try again. Same error. I try it twice more. VeohTV refuses to recognize my username/password. Fine, crazy bug.

So I'll just register a new account under a different e-mail. Get through the joy of doing that run around, and open VeohTV.

I enter my sparkling new username/pass combo. The same error comes up.

WTF?

I go to the forums, try all the 'solutions' there. None of them work, of course. Although, I'd like to thank the helpful USERS who posted them.

I search around, only to learn that the Veoh Staff won't be getting this looked at until Monday. WOW. That is some superb staffing right there. No techs or programmers on the weekends
