Post me a .GIF - Tell me a story!

I know I have posted this before but I still laugh and it was pages, and pages ago.

*firework backfire*

Spoiler:

The cringe is strong with that one. It has been awhile since I wasted my hard earned money on fireworks, but I seem to remember the fuze being on the top end of most roman candle like ones.

So we're really sharing gifs of fireworks exploding in peoples' hands? Do we really need a NSFL image topic? Is that who we are?

Huh? That's a roman candle, not a stick of dynamite. At most he'll need a new pair of pants, it only looks like it exploded because those flares are designed to be visible for hundreds of feet and he just fired one into his foot about 5 feet away from the camera.

Here's what I see: I see a guy lighting a firework, I don't care what kind of firework, there are such things as defective fireworks. It is a big ass tube full of highly combustible material. Then I see a ball of flame. Where my mind goes is not "ha ha that guy pointed a sparkler at his foot," it is "that guy just lit himself on fire."

There is no context for the gif. It ends before we can see if the guy is only singed.

*mod*

Borderline, so I spoilered it.

Well... okay sure it's theoretically *possible* that the tube was defective and exploded. But more likely what happened is exactly what is shown in the video, he shot himself in the foot because he's holding it upside down. The two scenarios are indistinguishable because the camera seems to be about 5 feet away and is completely blinded by the light. If you were standing further back it would probably look more like this:

(more idiots using fireworks incorrectly)

Spoiler:

Did he get hurt? Probably. Was it anything permanent or did he burst into flame? I doubt it, consumer grade fireworks are about as dangerous as a spud gun, more people die each year just from slipping on wet bathroom floors. You'd have to do something really stupid in order to get seriously hurt by one, way stupider than just holding it upside down. Best case scenario is needing a new pair of jeans, worst case scenario he'll need a new pair of eyebrows too.

EDIT: Nevermind. Doesn't work with the video tag.

I dunno, seems like they're just running in circles.

"Why do you always carry a dive knife?" is the scuba equivalent of "I don't have to outrun the bear..."
