This is just a friendly reminder that the SparkFun offices will be closed today, July 4th, for the Independence Day. You can still order as usual, but orders will not ship until tomorrow (July 5th). "According to Pete" will also post tomorrow!

Nothing says "patriot" like an American flag/cat window cling.

We hope you all have a great holiday (or a great regular ol' Monday)! If you are somewhere besides the US, you can use the 4th of July as an excuse to eat copious amounts of grilled meat, drink beer soda, and set off fireworks. Cheers!

  • I think it’s hilarious how SFE always makes remarks about wanting beer, when there are some pretty young kids coming on here. Whatevs…

  • Hmm… “beer soda” sounds good to me.

    • If you squint, it also looks a little like “bear soda,” which would be all kinds of crazy.

    • Up here, in the frozen tundra of Canada, we celebrated Canada Day this past Friday with something we call “barley pop”. We don’t have soda up here.

      • Pop is something you suck on like Lollipop or Popsicle. The fizzy stuff in the can or bottle is definitely soda.

  • Anyone built a novel use of microcontrollers to launch those fireworks?

  • Amend that to Oat Soda :)

  • Dear SparkFun,I Wish you all best and great 4th of July. I know I am a bit late:) So on 5th of July it will happen pretty a lot at SF? At least I will have “one more gray hair day”

  • Are those window clings legal?

  • I think every Hyundai should have a sticker on it saying “Made in Korea (made by America)” Nothing is more patriotic than buying a product from a product of America.

    • They actually make cars in the US: http://www.hmmausa.com/
      I don’t know about that particular model, though. And I’m pretty certain all the engineering is done in Korea…

  • and set off fireworks.
    Except fireworks are illegal here in Maine :-(

  • What a patriotic car! or as the Koreans would say: 애국 자동차와 고양이

  • I thought Emcee’s avatar was a bin laden puppet from team america world police….for about three seconds then I realized it’s a dark beer..Oh Yeah!

  • On a non-american car? Think of the Kittez!

  • I’m going to be very patriotic by listening to the awesome Israeli trance band (EDIT: Trance 2 people) Astral Projection!
    * Allah Acbar
    * Techno Terror
    * Tone Deaf
    * Galactica

  • I was so excited to watch According to Pete today. Oh well, Happy 4th of July!
