HST's Dead Carcass: Aside from that little brat, no other injuries at all, I always put on a great display with about 600 Mortars (I take the time to actually make them mesh when they explode and try to time them... fuses make it tricky to be 'professional'), and everyone enjoys the display.
Alonjar: The firework only had about one-quarter inch of fuse left and exploded in Jenkins' hand.The amount of people who think this is a good idea never ceases to amaze me.
The water was cold: I think this goes beyond "FAIL", and deserves the "DUMBASS" tag./At least he didn't try to imitate the Jackass stunt// Come to think of it, maybe he should haveim disappointed. he didn't try to fire it out of his ass.
bunner: You know how, like, when you go to a huge fireworks display, there's some cats in overalls with safety goggles and they have this huge, elevated platform and all the mortar launchers are wired with LoVo driven pyro matches and they have permits and key operated trigger consoles and redundant wiring and sensors and sh*t? There a reason for that. True fact.
Alonjar: Do you use HDPE for your tubes? I've been having trouble finding it on short notice :/
HST's Dead Carcass: In his defense, the kid is a firebug, almost to the point of Trashcan Man from The Stand.
jmr61: You people know WAY too much about fireworks.I quit thinking about them when I was about 14.
HST's Dead Carcass: This is why I am in charge of the Brother In law's fireworks show. I'm one of the few sober people there. No one is allowed to light off ANYTHING without my say so and supervision. We draw chalk lines on the driveway for the kids to queue up, then we have a 'launch box' for the kids where they are to light whatever fireworks they bring to the box.A few years back one of the kids snuck off with a bunch of Black Cats after I continually warned him not to light them off until it was his turn and I could watch. No more than an hour goes by and he's running to his mom crying his eyes out because one went off in his hand. Not only did he get singed fingers, but his mom chewed him out for doing it. In his defense, the kid is a firebug, almost to the point of Trashcan Man from The Stand.Aside from that little brat, no other injuries at all, I always put on a great display with about 600 Mortars (I take the time to actually make them mesh when they explode and try to time them... fuses make it tricky to be 'professional'), and everyone enjoys the display.
Molavian: Police also cited Jenkins for illegal possession of fireworks, a violation that carries a $250 base fine.lol
