Why does everyone get so excited by them?
i don't think anyone gets crazy excited other than children. and they like them because they're pretty lights in the sky.
you should appreciate the simple beauty of them. It'd do you good, for sure.
and the danger element
(the danger element is gunpowder)
setting them off yourself is the way to go
we should decide as a country to have either fireworks or pets, not both.
I vote for pets
Particularly as he get scared when I sneeze.
Some displays are crazy.
But,unless its' really spectacular, it's just something you've seen a million times before. Certainly home firework kits are a bit crap, as are most local firework displays.
This is brilliant though
What a guy.
a week later not so much
This is like asking what the appeal of fancy dress parties or shiny things is.
More maiming weapons freely available to minors for a fortnight each year
All the people bemoaning them are joyless cry babies.
I'll go out and light some now and see how I feel.
I fuckin' love a good chinese lantern.
I'm also into those firecracker sticks of dynamite things and crumbly walls.
I've never seen the point the oooh aaaaah-ing puddles that people become when colourful expensive things spark in the sky.
you're a monster
I'm the indiscriminate firestarter, the drifting firestarter...
Chinese lanterns drift off to the countryside and land in fields and kill sheep wren they try to eat them because sheep are stupid.
I ate a trio of lamb this week.
Sheep are expensive.
Apart from I'm not. I'm not sorry at all. Fuck you.
Well I'm gonna tell you.
People fucking moaning about their sodding pets. You know what? Your pets are probably terrified by tons of stuff you do every day, like hoovering. But when you turn on the hoover and they shit themselves, you laugh and say "oh Foofoo, you're sooooo cute when you get scared of the hoover....look at Foofoo! He's scared of the hoover! ahaha" Whilst thrusting the hoover in his direction.
Basically, shut the fuck up.
on the internet's worst ever challenge.
You will be emailed a coupon with which you can redeem 2 nappies.
your mum usually leaks after i ruin her
being dead will probably make you a bit leaky.
I just don't like something. That's allowed.
1) watching a display yesterday evening with my sister and my little 15 month old niece, pink ear defenders on, gazing wide-eyed in awe.
2) massive rocket getting stuck in a tube last year at my friend's house, going off and almost scarring us all horribly, all of us laughing madly after the stunned silence.
I'm willing to revise it to MOST fireworks are pretty shit really.
Most fireworks - 4/10.
A couple of the sparkly ones - 7/10
The big fuck-off expensive box that shoots several rockets into the sky - 9/10
Being one of 3 men in their early 30s hiding from the park wardens after they spotted the big fuck-off expensive box and came to investigate gets a 10 though.
you're over-thinking fireworks.
Then I saw a 50 second YouTube video of a fireworks show where they accidentally all went off at once. I was getting a bit bored by the 25 second mark.
i mean, you're obviously not, you're a good guy and normally fairly correct, but fireworks are fucking magical and wonderful and one of the best things in life
