Happy Father’s Day, you’re goin’ fission!
Blog Guy, I need some suggestions for a Father’s Day gift for my dad. He loves to fish, but he seems to have all the equipment he needs.
Wait. You mean DESTINATION, right?
Nope, I’m talking about a place where he can leave his complicated hooks and reels behind, and fish with explosives, the way things were meant to be.
Have a look at this fisherman showing off his rustic fuse and matchbox blasting cap. This guy is in for a relaxing afternoon, assuming he can swim away at about 80 miles an hour.
I guess maybe Dad would enjoy that…
Wait a minute! I’m not sending Dad to something that dangerous! What possible benefit is there to catching fish with explosives? And where does the “gourmet” part come in?
Simple. This method kills them, cleans them and pan-blackens them in the same process.
Oh, that’s different. Okay, sign him up.
