    I always say $20, but somehow $60 is missing when I walk away. Kind of pisses me off. I don't even get to play with fire. The nieces and gf light everything. I'm not as manly as you with the sparklers either.

    I haven't bought fireworks since a faulty one hit my mother in the eye, but if others have them I'll mooch like Used.

    Every year, my dad spends around $10,000 on fireworks. Ok, ok, he's actually the mayor of my hometown and the city puts on a large fireworks show for free for the public. Lots of fun. We usually spend between $20 and $50 on a small batch of fireworks for us to blow up for fun though.

    Me and my friends would get a bunch of sparklers and then fight with them. Full on throwing sparklers at each other.

    That said, I have no idea what I'm doing for 4th of July. Summer school starts two days before, and all my family are going to be out of town.

    I've never actually bought my own fireworks. I used to always go to the large public displays with my family though.

    It's weird in Ireland. Fireworks are a Halloween thing so I won't be seeing any for a while.

    I don't get why Canadians celebrate an Independence Day. I mean, they still have the Queen on their money, and she is still the figurehead for their entire government. Shouldn't it be called Semi-Independence Day? Or Less Dependence Day?

    Fun fact, we don't call it Independence Day.

    We call it The-world-doesn't-know-anything-about-us-but-it's-still-better-than-them-hating-us.

    Usually my buddy and I would've jumped in the car, driven 4 hours to Parumph, Nevada, buy a bunch of "GOOD" fireworks, then drive 4 hours back. We didn't do it this year.

    There are a couple stands around town, but they all sell bullcrap out here. No lady fingers, cat smackers, whisker rattler, whiskerdos, or whiskerdon'ts....

    The Second Sun:

    50-100 sparklers
    a large pot
    dirt

    Fill pot with dirt, stick sparklers in evenly but not too tight. Light as many as possible around the edge and run.

    I like fire crackers, but they're illegal in PA.

    Firecrackers or all fireworks?

    Are fireworks illegal in some parts of the US or was that just an inside joke on The Simpsons that I didn't get?

    Currently embattled in a civil war with one of its colonies... Although I do give props to the awesome boat ride that happened recently...

    Which is just as bad as spending trillions on a war on foreign soil.
