    Link: The Dangers of Fireworks - Authorities might be trying to prove how fireworks could kill you, but they`re only proving to me how awesome they are.

    Thanks to idiots who dont know how to use fireworks, they`re banned in Illinois too. Luckily, I live near the Indiana border where they sell them for close to nothing. Whooohooooo!

    Maybe someone should check the statistics of hotdog related deaths during the 4th of July and compare them to the couple of people that died from Fireworks, see which one comes out on top. Perhaps we can get Hotdogs banned across the nation instead of our precious precious fireworks!

    I love the fact that she says not to use "Professional" grade fireworks, which tend to include clear warnings about the use of them.

    I live in Oregon, which has a lot of crap banned, but no one seems to give a poo about upholding the law about bringing fireworks in from Washington.

    The way to keep people from using fireworks is to put this woman`s voice on a loudspeaker everywhere...holy crap, is she drunk? stupid? or both? Very annoying!

    I miss the days when we used to buy bucket loads of fireworks from the VFW stand and the whole neighborhood would block off the street and combine their goodies. A couple of the dads would do the setting off the fireworks honors and ALL the kids got sparklers all night long to play with and torture each other. Our mom`s were too drunk by dark to care if we hurt each other...and guess what? Nobody ever died!! Amazing.

    astounding production budget.

    that woman`s voice pissed me off. if we restrict fireworks usage, how will we weed out the morons, seeing as those astonishing TWO deaths were obviously well-deserved. what were they trying to prove by pointing a roman candle at the mannequin in the lawnchair anyway? "you must move away faster than this?" btw, did anyone else hear her laughing at the end? even she thinks these are cool.

    That doesn`t tell me how fireworks are dangerous, it just tells me how people act stupid and ruin it for the rest of us.

    Seriously, who stands directly over or sits 3 feet away from a professional-grade firework when something like that is clearly going to burn your skin off at the least? If you are stupid enough to expose yourself to that type of danger willingly then you deserve whatever fiery shrapnel gets exploded into your face.

    Of course it`s those douchebags from up here in Washington. Well guess what you dumb bitch, that`s why you don`t stand over fireworks that blast up or you don`t sit in front of fireworks that shoot at you. It`s illegal to use fireworls here in this part of Washington, but me and my friends do anyway.
