Bury the lede much? That's one of the worst news articles I've ever read.

Does anyone more than a mile from this care?  How about we dedicate the thread to the much more interesting article linked to in TFA for the bikini motorcycle wash:

That was an awful lot of words to say, "It was just fireworks."

And not nearly enough to explain why the hell someone was setting off a homemade gas bomb whose after effects could be seen from miles away.

My first thought seeing that smoke ring, a gasoline type explosion in a circular open topped container created to make a big greasy smoke ring.

When I think "firework", I'm not thinking petroleum products.

the linked video from the article... Start at 1:50 to avoid the tard-witness's and all the speculation from tard reporter stretching the story.

Because it was a family celebration.

449 words to say what they know it wasn't, followed by 1 word to finally say what it was? That's a padding.

Funny. My first thought was "bees". Then I decided, nah, it's probably a UFO.

My first thought was "Darwin's having a group awards ceremony!"

Canton, that's what you call a Florida Seminole American Indian. They've sort of been there a long time.

As someone who has been to parties in rural Florida where acetylene filled ballons were launched and blown up I agree that it is some pretty fun shiat. Totally some "hey yall watch this" moments involved.

The big difference is that these parties were in the country. Whoever these assholes were appear to have fired off whatever their bomb was in the middle of a neighborhood. Police should look into it.

Some are idiots.

I made the same thing as a kid by throwing a entire brick of those little ladyfinger firecrackers in a garbage can and lighting it. Not quite as big though.

Sorry, it was me, wicked backfire on the Harley. I was at a bikini bike wash, and this chic was grinding up against the throttle so hard she must have flooded it. Wasn't really paying attention when I fired it up.

It's a red-necked moron. They're indigenous to that area.

That's the paranoid froth that the majority of "average" intelligence people live with daily. I'm amazed humanity made it this far.

Do Seminole people never get dementia? I mean, that's a cool tidbit, but... I'm not getting the relevance, unless you're implying that she's been there a long time.

/Also, she's a "what?"

To be fair, it looks like a pretty slow news day - the next story on the teaser bar is "Teen Wakes Up" which is unusual, but not really newsworthy unless you're The Onion.
