Game Time: 10 Simple Rules To Safe Fireworking (With Video Of People Being Unsafe!)

For those working today, I hope you all had a very happy and safe 4th of July weekend. For those blessed with a vacation day today, I hope your happy and safe 4th of July weekend continues. This post is actually for you.

I realize that many of you took in the city's fireworks show or depending on (a) how defiant you are of the laws inside Houston city limits or (b) just how far out in the sticks you live, you may have concocted your own symphony of explosives.

However, with the holiday today, some of you may have leftover Roman candles or bottle rockets (along with leftover beer) and feel compelled to keep the party going. You know, really show England who's boss! (That'll be the last time you tax us without representation, assholes!)
