    "Friday" Evening Discussion

    Since most of us will be busy tomorrow, I'm doing this tonight as the 4th of July edition. What are your favorite types of fireworks? For me, it's Roman candles because of the drunken Roman candle wars we used to have in my younger days. Good times.

    I'm sure I'll be called unamerican, but I don't like fireworks. Like, at all. Once you've seen one, you've seen them all.

    I must watch them differently then you, when I watch I have my arm around my girl and a beer in my hand.

    I don't dislike them...but being colorblind, I'm rarely 'wowed' by them.

    You need fireworks to accomplish that?

    Re: "Friday" Evening Discussion

    My buddies and I used to go out into the country on a gravel road and launch some off. We used to hold bottle rockets from our hands and let them fly off. I'll never forget how scared my cousin was the first time he did it, he held on too tightly and it went off right in his hand as he screamed and jumped. And then of course we also thought every car coming was a cop too so we'd pack everything up and run.

    Re: "Friday" Evening Discussion

    which ones are the ones that look like weeping willows? I like those best.

    also, carlhungus, I think this Friday evening thing should become a thing.


    new signature ideas needed; inquire within

    This sums up firing off fireworks for me.

    It was even better if we just hid in the brush and all instead of driving so a car passing by would slow down and just creep hardcore on this random truck parked in the middle of nowhere with no owners nearby (as if the fireworks magically lit themselves).

    I've done it a few times. I'll try to make it a regular thing, but some Friday nights I like to relive my college days and go out so no promises it will be every Friday

    It's usually easier when Friday is Thursday.

    I like whistling bottle rockets.

    Anyone else go to Prairie Meadows tonight? Their fireworks are always top notch.
