Do you like fireworks?

Postby SoGone » 08 Jul 2011, 16:02

I get the appeal, in a way, but I'm not fanatic about them the way some people seem to be. They're certainly annoying when they're going off because of a sports team, and you're just trying to get some sleep.

Well I like them on November 5th here but only because it is a big british tradition to have them because of Guy Fawkes - and only professional displays - I don't really agree with them being home bought... allowing the masses to get their grubby little hands on explosives is not a good idea methinks!!!!... :P

Who the fuck is Guy Fawkes?


And yeah, it's bad enough that firearms and SUV's are available to the public. Letting them have explosives is akin to giving a pit bull cocaine*.



*If you think it's easy to make up clever, insightful, relevant comparisons, let's see you conjure up a better analogy.

Thrilling. Very educational, and relevant as well. Fortified with my newfound knowledge of who Guy Fawkes is, I now feel equipped to deal with the tribulations I will inevitably face in the coming days.

lol!!! :evil: :( At least you know why we have fireworks up and down the country on November 5th!!!! We should celebrate the fact that Guy Fawkes tried to blow up parliament and kill those corrupt bastards, not celebrate his death!!!!...

It's very rare that a person, with what they write, can literally make me chuckle out loud, but you just did it. Congrats.



But yeah, fireworks. What a terrible idea.
