A bird? A plane? No! It's a Slushie!

License plates are wonderful things.

300 yards south of 129th St, southbound on Highway 99 in Vancouver, Wa.
Southbound maroon Geo Metro, with a green hood, teenage driver and passengers, license plate number 928-SFO.
Poorly aimed 40 mph red slushie. (they missed, Ha!)
911 recieved the information immediately, and a report has also been emailed to the local police.

I guess they don't like Kickbikes!
This car is in the Salmon Creek area on a regular basis. The green hood makes it distinctive. I'll keep an eye open for it; and if anyone here comes up with anything, let me know! I'm a lighthearted guy, not the sort to take vengeance on anyone, and just concerned that these kids might make a habit of this sort of thing and hurt someone. Any info will be passed along for whatever the police might have in mind.

Good for you. I think you're doing the kids a favor. One of these days they're going to pull something on someone who will pound them into dust. Whatever the police do will be mild in comparison.

Still, what little snots.

Yes, but at 50 miles per hour, it's a deadly weapon. Ewwww, death by slushie!

More like a cup of wet, flavored snow.

You could actually get throught by calling 911?

You are helping those kids by reporting them. In east LA some cyclists would shoot back.

As I said in another thread earlier today....one bright side to schools cutting athletic program budgets. Little snots have worse aim.

A great, non-dangerous, way of getting vengeance would be to get a slushie and find the car when it's parked (or stopped at an intersection maybe, although in that case they'd see you do it) and just dump the slushie upside down on the hood or roof (make sure to leave the cup, make it as obvious as possible).

'A' slushie? Try 10!

Let's get the facts straight on this one:

A Slushie (tm) is like stated above, wet, flavoured snow. Basically it's crushed ice dumped in a cup then covered with a syrupy flavouring usually in bright vivid colours.

A SLURPEE (or other brand) is fine crushed ice combined with syrup (often Pepsi or Coke syrup) then poured into a cup.

Yey for 7-Eleven SLURPEES

Don't kid yourselves. The call probably went into the old bit bucket.

Similar thing happened to a friend of mine. A call to his father in-law yielded an address. The location was in a rough section of town. That did not stop him. A brick through the wind shield was the pay back.
