Seven Idiotic Ways Not to Use Fireworks This 4th of July (With Video Evidence)
Everyone likes to burn stuff and watch it explode, right? Okay, well, some people do, which is why fireworks are so popular. They combine the fun of burning things with the excitement of blowing things up. It's like peanut butter and chocolate.

This Fourth of July, there are lots of dumb things you could do with your fireworks like blowing up mailboxes or firing rockets into a dry patch of drought-ravaged forest.
