Why would this Whatcom company mount a flamethrower on a skid steer? Because it could.
Just for the record, yes, the fire department has been called a time or two when Leib's neighbors saw him testing the flamethrower.

A 10-year-old named Clark Kent beat a record that Michael Phelps held for 23 years

Over the weekend, Clark, who swims for the Monterey County Aquatic Team, competed at the Far West International Championship in California, where he won the 100-meter butterfly in 1:09:38.
That's more than a second better than the 100-meter butterfly record that Phelps set at the championship in 1995.
That is a huge, HUGE margin.

Patrick Stewart’s Picard to return in new Star Trek series

The Enterprise captain will return as part of the expanded CBS All Access Trek universe

After an announcement earlier this summer that four new Star Trek series were in the works for CBS’ streaming service All Access, word leaked that the network was actively courting Star Trek: The Next Generation star Sir Patrick Stewart back to the Federation cloth for another voyage of boldly going where no one has gone before. At the time, sources told Polygon that the casting decision might come down to a paycheck. Now, confirmed at this year’s Star Trek convention, we know CBS bosses said: “Make it so.”

Surprising William Shatner’s big panel, Stewart took the STLV stage to announce the official return of Captain Jean-Luc Picard to the franchise. He’ll next be seen in an untitled new Trek series set to debut on CBS All Access. According to an official tweet by the Star Trek account, the series “tells the story of the next chapter in Picard’s life.” One other minor tease was... logical: the show will be set 20 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis.

“I look forward to working with our brilliant creative as we endeavor to bring a fresh, unexpected and pertinent story to life,” Stewart wrote in a simultaneous announcement on Twitter.

At the panel, Stewart admitted to, at first, declining the chance to jump back into the Star Trek universe. But after a rewatch of The Next Generation, he felt compelled to sign on.

“He may not be a Captain anymore. He may be someone who has been changed by his experiences,” Stewart said at the convention. “We have no scripts as yet. We’re just talking talking talking storylines. It will be something very different but it will come to you with the same passion.”
