You only need a good seal if your going to act like you're at a rave.

Light the thing and immediately throw it at something hard. Anything else is just Darwin-a-go-go.

None of this will make the national news because no brown people.  Uganda outlaws gays, that's today's top story on Google.

The Ukraine? You know what the Ukraine is, it's a sitting duck. A road apple, Newman. The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble. I think it's time to put the hurt on the Ukraine...

It's been on the news quite a bit - every night for the past ?? days.

The top news story for me on Google right now is about Mexico not extraditing El Chapo,  Then again, if I bring it up again the top story is about Arizona.

It almost looks like Chicago in 1968 at the police riot.

I'm amazed that the Internet stayed on in that area during the fighting.

The revolution was not televised, it was youtubed.

Actually, you are not supposed to stick the rag in the bottle at all.  You tie or tape the rag around the neck of the bottle, light it and throw the damned thing.  When the bottle breaks and spreads the fuel you get a hellish mess.  Anyone who actually sticks a flaming rag into a bottle of alcohol is a Darwinian poster child.

I've seen the other videos that show the protestors advancing with their little metal shields and getting picked off one by one, which leads me to ask:

Why are you advancing on an enemy that's shooting you while you are wielding sticks?

You can hear gunshots and see your fellow countryman falling by your side dying yet you continue to advance and cringe/hide underneath your 1/4" aluminum shields??

Maybe the wrong side won here.

Exactly. It's not a glowstick. It's a flaming bottle of gasoline. Get rid of the damned thing as quickly as possible.

Although there was an interesting agreement between an Asian government and its protestors. The government agreed not to fire rubber bullets directly at protestors--bounce them in or over their heads instead--as long as the protestors didn't use volatile fuels in their molotovs and didn't throw them into the police. Well, some young hot heads had to come along and break the long-standing agreement. They filled their molotovs with gasoline and hurled them right into the cops. After that, it was real bullets shot flat. Not very pretty. Things got very bad very quickly.

It was interesting to see a peaceful non-peaceful, violent non-violent protest. It was not so nice to see it breakdown.

You seem well-acquainted with the dark ways of Molotov.  I trust you use your powers for good.

Many in Ukraine are demanding their own version of our 2nd amendment.  One time facing an armed and tyrannical government without the proper means of revolution was enough for them.  Fortunately we do not have such a problem.
