And as WTWizard said,
"My idea is to contribute the light and decoration show. I am looking at the possibility of transitioning from serious amateur to professional--if only Osama Obama and his DUMP-o-CRAPs would take their damn regulations and tax traps the fxxx out of my way. That way, I could make some serious money--some of the best professionals can make more than $100,000 in just three months' time.
At least I can light up my apartment common area and practice rigging up the lights the ways the pros do it. It makes everyone else feel better (which is more than can be said about field circus), and takes about the same amount of time as attending the boasting sessions would have (if that). And now I am seeing a few other tenants making attempts to decorate their own common areas--until the one day some dingbat Jehovah's Witlesses move in and make a stink to the apartment manager, nothing will be done to stop it.
