Flaming fun.

Since the Fourth of July is rapidly approaching, I thought I would include this little cautionary tale. Originally I found this clip over at College Humor. (The site itself is NSFW, you never know what you’re going to have displayed).

Get this video and more at MySpace.com

This is why States like Illinois have laws banning fireworks. Idiots like these help support the governments belief that people can’t think for themselves and need to be told what to do. I mean seriously people; in what world would anyone think this is a good idea? You know that if the kid getting shot got hurt, his parents would be petitioning the lawmakers to make a law banning fireworks or making it a felony to shoot them at someone. Then they would name the law after the boy, the “Farking idiot that doesn’t have the common sense to not let his friend shoot him with Roman candle” Law. Then all the responsible, firework-loving citizens of the state would suffer. As the fireworks would get banned or you need a special license to buy them, people would go out of state to procure their fiery fun. Then they would make another law, the “People are buying fireworks out of state, bringing them back and lighting them, so we need to ban the setting off of fireworks” law.

Then the cops will be able to confiscate all the ill-gotten fireworks. And issue tickets to help bolster the local economy. Trust me, I have experience with this.

Now that was just stupid...

Funny, but stoopid.

This is why you have artillery as a living historian. Who needs to buy stupid roman candles and sparklers when all you need is the toys from rendezvous.

And I have done stupid things with my friends, but, to let someone actually shoot you with 25 Roman Candles is ranks right up there with castration and a full frontal labotomy. Actually, I think the letting someone shoot you with 25 Roman candles follows the full frontal labotomy.

Idiots. I sure hope alcohol was involved. I'd hate to think they are that stupid all the time.
