Yes... great idea to be lighting your fireworks 10' feet away from your cache of fireworks that is resting under a car's gas tank - what could go wrong?

In 15 seconds this scene became...

Looks like the actual gas tank did not burst, that fireball would have been bigger!

btw, this is what my neighborhood sounded like...

y'know how every neighborhood has that one house that takes fireworks VERY serious and has a wide range of mostly illegal fireworks that they start blowing up as dusk and finish around 1am?

I've got a dozen of those houses in this neighborhood. Literally, huge explosions happening at least one/second for hours. My poor cat...

I remember about two years ago, some guys set up some professional pyro stuff in a residential cul de sac.

They went to jail, on the spot, no cite and release.

Fairly quiet in my neighborhood for the last few years.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Ah growing up:

My brothers and I were known in the neighborhood for our pyrotechnics. Bottle rocket wars were our speciality. Used PVC pipes to make launchers--drill a hole for the fuse to stick out. Battle the next door neighbors. The stories I could tell of us and the neighborhood kids when things did not go well.

When public fireworks were cancelled due to the COVID shutdowns, several families gathered for a monster display in the parking lot across the street. It was a mighty fine display which started just before sundown and ran until about midnight with additional firings for an hour or more after that.

Fortunately, the dog we had at the time was deaf and slept through it.

This year the parking lot display lasted about 15 minutes, but we could hear loud booms from throughout the city until well after midnight. Our new resident had to have been hoarse the next day from all the barking. A Pug doesn't make much noise when barking, so that was not a problem, but that the was so upset (if that is the word) was troubling to us.
