To be fair, I live near Camp Pendelton, and there are times we hear the booms.
Also occasionally..because So-Cal is home to so much of this kind of thing, we hear a sonic boom and even see a spiral in the sky from a rocket launched, or a boom from a space shuttle (rarely)
Willie Wonka quotes..
What is this Wonka, some kind of funhouse?
Why? Are you having fun?
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams
