Either that or he was looking for his pet potato.

Jesus Burnt My Hotdog: Bigman397: Some pretty boring ass fireworks.

Ass fireworks are never boring......

Tillmaster: So it basically started as a British firework display - understated and slightly dull - then became American for a brief while.


Premature, dangerous and loud?

farker99: At least in San Diego we set them off over water, so when they all go off at once things don't catch on fire on the ground around the launch site.

Still, pretty cool to watch
/from a distance


There's a difference between an electrical issue that screws up the timing of the launches but still puts everything into the sky (San Diego) and a low-level explosion that ignites all the paper in the mortars (this show).
And there's absolutely no excuse for this kind of a fark-up though. It would have only taken a few minutes to unroll some aluminum foil over the row of mortars to prevent this exact thing from happening. Any cakes should be far enough away from the mortars to minimize the same risk.

My neighbor over yonder has better (read: bigger) fireworks in his backyard.

thisisyourbrainonFark: Watched it like a boss.


Oh how I detest the saying like a boss. Does that mean this other person was qualified through education or experience to watch this in a way you were not? Is it an assumption that most people who have bosses but no employees make that this person is stupid or dangerously unqualified and somehow managed to be in a higher paying position with more responsibility for no reason?

It's a meme originating from SNL, I believe. But you're right, I should've went with explosions. Loud. Good.

is it wrong that I'm slightly annoyed that I had to click a link in the article to see the video of the event in the video section of FARK?

I understand that the video probably needed explanation, hence the article, but some how I would feel a little better if the video of the event was imbedded in the article that was linked. It just seems to me that this particular link would best just posted on the main page, and not cross linked between the main and video tab as the article is formatted out.

but, that's just me I guess..

sorry If I wasted y'alls time.

The video is embedded in the article - the picture under the headline is the video.

I have no picture under the headline in the article that comes up when I click the headline link. at all..
what I get is a headline, the first paragraph of the article, then a link to see the video on you tube, then the rest of the article.

perhaps it's all sucked up by Adblock on my firefox?

And for that matter... why am I not getting any email updates of commented articles or alerts of people mentioning me? everything checks out on "my fark" to get them...

Your internet is haunted. Have you built anything on an ancient burial ground lately?

oukewldave: blankwhiteboard: Neato! I enjoyed the close shave the cameraman got towards the end. I'm still more impressed with the San Diego 2012 misfire that launched three barges of fireworks all at once, five minutes before the show was supposed to being. Good times. Soiled pants.

/turn down the sound before clicking on that link - the video is LOUD

I prefer this version


heh heh heh, I liked it

This.

I'd have probably been in the next county after the initial explosion.
