Now that the 4th is just around the corner I've been reminiscing about my enjoyment of fireworks at a young/stupid age. I used to put a bunch of fireworks into a cardboard box with windows cut in, set up as a chain reaction.... A sparkler would ligt fuses tied to it ect. Usually instead of a neat "mousetrap" style display the whole cardboard box would go in flames part way through leading to some jumping and dodging. The worst display I built was when I broke the sticks off of over 100 bottle rockets and jammed them into a cardboard tube I made wide enough to hold all of them parallel. I did my best job of twisting the fuses together (paper fuses work much better then the green one for this purpose) and put it on a small stand so I could get underneath the pack to light it. Unfortunately I didn't anticipate that they would fall over in the tube once several fired not to mention have no control without the sticks. My whole family was watching next to the porch including my grandmother who was in a wheelchair. Once I lit it in the street turned into WW2. Those suckers were flying EVERYWHERE between our roof and the neighbors across the street, exploding all around us. I'm just glad I didn't give my grandmother a heartattack since she was in the middle of the storm with no way out. Whoops!
Did you guys have any close calls with fireworks?

I guess we'll be reading about how you blew "$body_bart" off later on in the week here! ;)

***Don't try anything you read here! These were mistakes people made and are not meant for repeating.***

Not quite firework related, but as a warning don't put chunks of dry ice in a 2liter bottle filled with water and then pick it up and throw it when it doesn't explode by itself. We found chunks of plastic shrapnal in trees near the impact spot. I probably could have gotten killed by that stupidity.

I haven't messed with fireworks too much yet...just threw a few waterproof firecrackers or wutever into the pond by the little fish...thats funny.

The closest call with a firework is one only went about 10 feet up and blew up...everyone dove for ther ground it was hilarious.

I'm going out to pick up some fireworks tomorrow, since I'm still in my young and stupid age...
As an interesting anecdote, my friend and I were lighting off smoke bombs after the last day of school. The principal saw us and yelled at us, but no call to the 'rents luckily...I turned my back to her, so hopefully I remained unseen and he'll get off the hook as well.
