When I was 14 I thought Cherry Bombs and M 80'S were the greatest thing ever. I did so much stupid stuff its miracle I didnt blow one of my arms off. So I get the kids liking this, I just cant relate with adults thinking this is fun. Im sure Oliver Anderson will have several drunk middle aged nitwits in the ER tonight, who forgot to duck. Maybe they will have learned something, but probably not.
I dont care if people stay up all night in the back yard and play music and get drunk as hell. Others might, but I can block that out. Its not easy to block out commercial grade fireworks when two 75 lbs dogs are jumping in your lap.
One of my relatives was one of those that had to outdo the neighbor, every neighbor on this day. I think the fascination finally wore off, I hope so anyway.
