    Bobby, in years past I've gone to shows at The Gorge only to unknowingly park next to some jamokes in the campground with midwest (or southern as they've easily co-oped the game) roots, which means waking up to the sound of beanbags pounding plywood and cracking beers.

    At 8 am.

    We're all neighbors.

    there’s this thing now where jamokes bring 2 tiny trampolines and a ball which they bounce back and forth with a swatting motion. doesn’t seem to be a winner drinking or loser watching his buddy hurl, like when we used to play a real game like quarters.

    I've seen this shit. No joke. On both the "Ocho" when the tmzSPN does that every year and also on the large green down below my office tower by, what I'm guessing, are freelance graphic designers of some sort.

    It doesn't look conducive to holding a drink. And it doesn't look as pleasant as hackey sack was in high school. Bit aggro if anything for a millenial hippie sport. Fuck em, I'll launch a jart from the balcony if things get out of control.

    ok jarts are legit, especially cuz they’ll take an eye out at best and using the KQ definition, they are without a doubt deadly.

    I had ground wasps in my back yard a few years ago. They stung my wife when she walked through the yard and then got me several times after I mowed over their secret lair. Having young kids I knew they had to go. I searched the internet for humane and restrained approaches to eliminate the wasps.

    Once I figured out where the entrance was I placed a glass bowl over it, as the interwebz claimed this would end them within 48 hours. The next day I went outside to discover they had dug a new exit within a foot of the original entrance. They did not seem a bit bothered by having to dig a new means of egress. So, I covered entrance 2 with another clear glass bowl. The following day a third entrance had been dug. They were hard working wasps. Do not waste your time with clear bowls.

    Next I tried to flood them out. Despite running a hose full bore into the uppermost entrance for 15 minutes the little bastards appeared nonplussed by their forced bath. Our sandy soil likely drained the water before it could build up and drown the nasty buggers.

    Finally, tired of their resilience and refusal to vacate, I went pyro. A couple of hours after sunset I poured about a half gallon of gasoline, which was likely 7/16s of a gallon too much, into the upper opening, waited about 10 seconds and threw a few matches at the entrance.

    What followed was like a scene from the movie backdraft. With an audible WHOOSH, fired shot out of not one or two but all three entrances. The flames burned and burned for 10 minutes unabated as though 3 bunsen burners were buried in my yard. When I noticed my relatively new neighbors peering out of their windows I became a bit more aware that I had gone WAY overboard.

    Since a 3 foot circle of my lawn was totally blackened and the subterranean inferno still raged, I figured I would grab a shovel and "dig the fire out". It made sense in the moment but was ludicrous. The gas had perneated the above mentioned sandy soil and burned like a raging gas grill as I opened up a two foot deep hole.

    Finally realizing the gas was headed towards the ground water I dug like heck and poured each scoop of sandy soil back into the flames before setting it aside. Each scoop of sand would light up as though I was pouring fresh gasoline on the fire. Pouring the sand slowly into the flames from shoulder height created a cascade of flames roughly ten feet high, which eventually drew my new neighbors out onto their deck with beers (one for me) to watch the pre 4th of July festivities.

    I kept digging and "cleansing the soil by fire" for about and hour, with my neighbor giving me a hand, before the fuel source was eliminated.

    While it was clearly not my finest moment, my neighbor loves telling the story, and the ground wasp problem was no more.

    So, a cup of gasoline is likely more than enough to do the job.

    1 - Do the killing and night or early morning while the little bastards are in the nest.

    2- Pour half a pint of gasoline in the hole

    3- light it.

    4- Check back during the day to kill stragglers/survivors with bee/wasp spray

    Before going overboard with the potential of exploading your yard in a caddy shack flash back. Why donít you try squirting a can of wasp killer down the hole? I have had success doing that in the past. Then, if that doesnít work, move on to more complicated solutions.

    Tape all your cuffs. Wear ski goggles. Make sure the powder skirt is nice and tight.
