where exactly is the line for the wet tshirt contest?

This is what is wrong with religion in this country...no religious holidays dedicated to a national waterfight.
glatt Tuesday Aug 9 03:24 PM
I love it. This is awesome. I want to be there.
Trilby Tuesday Aug 9 04:02 PM
Any excuse for a party! I like it! Nice that it happens in the summer, though, 'cause a winter water-fight would kinda suck.

You gotta love a country that has a national holiday that involves water pistols. Wata we have? Fireworks. *yawn*
lookout123 Tuesday Aug 9 05:37 PM
water pistols? who cares? how cool can it be if you can't permanently disfigure you and your loved ones with it?
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Aug 9 06:05 PM
Use a crossbow and icicles for that.

Lucky for some, and certainly lucky for some countries. Us folks back here in Sydney are still on water restrictions and probably will be for the rest of our lives. It is a real waste of water thought (sorry to be practical)
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Aug 9 07:13 PM
So Leah, that means you shower with a friend.
Leah Tuesday Aug 9 07:15 PM
I try to, but no takers at the moment.
busterb Tuesday Aug 9 08:29 PM
Lady I may be old, but I can promise you all the water you could ever want. Anything else, sorry, might be out for lunch.

Maybe it's just me... but too much unsharp mask?

The little boy in the next to last image looks like the typical Maoist poster child image, all he needs is a little red book!

I have just looked at Leah's picture in her profile, and I find it nearly impossible to believe that she cannot find a shower partner.

This is only one Prefecture. The April festival of Songkran Thai New Year in Thailand looks very similar except it is 3 days and nationwide. Traffic police have their radios and guns covered in cling film/saran wrap. Youths drive around in pickup trucks with buckets/pails, which they refill from an on-board water barrel, dousing "unsuspecting' passers-by at 40kph. Every bar in the kingdom is full of Super Soakers and it is impossible to stay dry. The “Not Amused” crowd usually book those 3 days at secluded resorts. Small children in rural areas have hand pumps, which resemble an old fashion bicycle pump, these when used in conjunction with a garbage can full of water are very effective.

the guy on the balcony redefines "supersoaker" with that 2800 PSI pressure washer.
