I don't think I'll ever understand why people continue shoot bottle rockets out of their asses. I mean, they've seen the videos and the damage it can do. Either way, I'm glad they do it because it's always fun to laugh at idiots with a charred butt. 

The video above features people doing the dumbest things with fireworks or just accidents that were meant to happen because those involved weren't thinking clearly.

Last year on the 4th of July, I got a full understanding of what it's like being too close to a mortar when it goes off. I don't really know what happened other than I was obviously too close when I lit it. It was so weird, it was like everything became muffled and I was seeing stars. I'm pretty lucky I still have my hearing today.

Be safe this 4th of July and make sure the sober one is the one lighting off your fireworks.
