    Haven't been able to buy fireworks in years, damn things are expensive. A few years ago I bought $400 worth of mortar shells, what a fantastic night. I woke up the next day reeking of gunpowder.

    4th of July is better as a Friday.

    Unfortunately, fireworks are basically banned around here because of the area's similarity to a tinderbox.

    4th of July? Oh, the day before I switch my mobile phone operator. Maybe I should make a cake since I'm so happy to get rid of DNA.

    it was about 2k worth. next year we are building a custom rack. and going to fuse about 100 excalibur shells for the finale. we fused some stuff but we got slow burning fuse because it was our first time using fuse. anyway here are some more video's. they are kinda blurry, it was done on a cell and it was getting kinda humid out. skip to 0:40 for the start of the 1st video.

    Getting an early night and going to bed.

    But, have fun with your BBQ and fireworks etc all you American folk.

    I have to agree though, that IS a lot to spend on fireworks!

    Making this thread was unfortunately an invitation to get flamed. This site is very anti-American.

    This thread has fared better than the others.

    Everytime someone from another country that isnt USA posts a "Its [something] day on my country!" it has 3 pages of people saying "NOBODY CARES. WHY POST THIS HERE?"

    And god forbid if they dont write in "good" english.

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Also this. It may amaze you but we aren't the center of the earth. (Though we're kinda a big deal.) :nerd:

    Not really. Some people take critiques of Americans are anti-Americanism.

    Notice how this thread has maybe one troll and one or two good natured ribbings?

    It is the internet. This forum is owned by a dutch man and has a much more international audience than many sites, so yes, you'll get people more critical than you might on other sites. Speaking as an American, I have seen very little true anti-Americanism, and those people have pretty much been banned by now.

    Not that one. It's a day when people are going home (to reserve) from their military service. :) Damn, it's been 4 years when I left (had one refresher training [a bit under two weeks] or whatever it was about a year ago).

    I'm not impressed with holidays, don't really care. Like Billy Bob said in Bad Santa when asked what he does when Xmas is over "well nothing till March, then I'm the ****ing Easter Bunny" lol

    Just got back from my mini vacation two days ago. Still tired.
    I just bought a roll of 500 firecrackers and a case of beer. That's it for today ;/
