We had two near mishaps tonight with the fireworks.

First one wasn't our fault. We got a product like this one that shoots flaming balls into the air ... supposedly. The first shot went DOWN instead of up, blowing out the bottom of the unit and tipping it on its side, where it proceeded to shoot flaming balls at homes, cars, and people. We got it upright before it hurt anyone or anything.

The other mishap was user error. Dude got some huge mortars and put the first one in the tube upside down. We all looked up, and saw nothing, then BOOM. It blew the fiberglass tube to hell, and luckily no one was closer to it than about 20 feet, but even 30 feet away you could feel the shockwave. Again, no damage to property or persons.
