And here I thought yelling "INCOMING" was reserved only for the Russians.

Reminds me of when my dad and one of his buddies used to send up explosive balloons on the 4th.  One balloon got helium, one got acetylene, tie the balloons together and tape a lit cigarette to the acetylene balloon.  "Don't you kids try this!  This his farkin' dangerous!"  "Yeah, no shiat.  We don't even want to be on the same block.  And how are we supposed to get home when you're in the hospital?"  Somehow, they managed to not blow themselves up.  The minor "whoomph" didn't seem worth the risk of burning all the hair off their bodies.

Thanks. I'd only seen the last few seconds of that clip, and without the lead-up it didn't make any sense.

I was in Bulgaria, in a city with a castle on the hill above town, and they often had fireworks displays on the castle ground, which were gorgeous from town. We were watching from the bridge between the town and the castle, and sure enough, the dry ravine next to us caught on fire - it was August. From our perch on the bridge we could see the firetrucks attempting to approach in what could only be described as a Three Stooges fashion. Locals not giving a shiat and not letting them through, wrong turns and back ups, etc. It was fantastic.

Fortunately, they got there eventually, somehow managed to put the fire out, and all was well.

No fatalities? Their fireworks suuuuuuck.

The town was Velinko Tarnovo, and if you're in Bulgaria, check it out. Absolutely beautiful. But watch out for fires.

In the video, the fireworks castle appears sentient. That part separates, rises above the rest, pauses, focuses in on the person with the camera, and then attacks him/her.

This is no ordinary fireworks castle.

Farther.

That thing was using Three Stooges physics (straight trajectory unfitting of its relatively slow speed).  Only thing missing was the comical WHOOSH sound like in the 3D shorts.

Birthday parties in central America were a big wake up call.

Oreamnos: Farther.


Sorry guys, I speak British English. Farther and further are comparative adverbs or adjectives. They are the irregular comparative forms of far. We use them to talk about distance. There is no difference in meaning between them. Further is more common. The only time further is used but not farther is when further means "more", "another" or as a followup.

To be fair that could be from anywhere that fireworks are used like the Netherlands, the UK or the US

My reference, since you couldn't see the forrester for the pedantry

Having never seen that film I would never have gotten the reference.
