    Essentially bottle rockets and the kind of things you see at professional fireworks shows. They were everywhere last night.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sounds pretty sick to me.

    Ever heard of an ignition source?

    My kid's don't handle the fireworks around here - nor is it legal for them to purchase them.

    It would be a safer world if that was true everywhere for everyone.

    God damn boring one, if you ask me. Last night I enjoyed a neighborhood's firework show. Everyone spent a lot of money for community entertainment, set them off in their yards. The kids did it, parents did it, everyone did it. They all clean up after themselves, and they do 360 degrees of fireworks every single year. It rivaled the neighboring city's symphony and firework show at the capital building, but I would say the only thing that neighborhood was missing was the symphony and it would beat the city show easily.

    Yes, we should ban fireworks.
    And cars, motorcycles, football, baseball, swimming, swimming pools, knives, rocks, ball bats, spikes, hammers, gasoline, lighters, forks, axes, mowers, tractors, air planes, helicopters, mountain climbing, diving etc etc etc and on and on and on.
    We should stayed cowered in our homes, never leaving and let the government provide everything we need.

    Sounds like a good way to start a lot of fires and blow some fingers off.

    Just to be clear here, if you want to shave with a chainsaw, get after it.

    Or have a good time and rarely see an accident. Perhaps you don't believe there can be safe home firework launches?
