I have nothing against fireworks. I won't set them off personally, but I will watch them. I do, however, wish my neighbors wouldn't use them. Scares one of my poor dogs half to death.

I did that too. Remember when letting your kids have fun was allowed? Now it would probably be considered child abuse. Young kids today are huge wimps.

That would be a show worth paying for.

Who needs fireworks when you can set off plastic explosives.

With bottles of water taped on the front.

With food colouring in the water.

I'll admit it didn't work the way we thought.

We fired a mortar on the 4th. It didn't launch, and the fuse was still running down. It finally shot into the air and detonated–less than five feet off the ground! I hit the dirt, my brother froze and one of the giant "sparks" or whatever you want to call them came within centimeters of his face (!), and my mother and her friend, sitting fifteen, twenty feet away on a bench had to dive for cover.

Then on the 5th, we fired one of those ones that shoot silver fireballs up into the air, and the wind blew it over. The thing was spinning around on the ground, shooting fireballs all over everywhere, and we're lucky a fire wasn't started because one went under a van that leaked fuel! Then the same day, just a few minutes later, the neighbors fired something (don't remember what) that flew over into our yard and started a fire! My dad ran over and stamped it out, but...man it was bad this year!

And then you get older, get married and have kids.

Unless of course you are all of that. Then, I have no idea.
