    Don't be embarrassed.

    I almost killed my brother in 1988 by throwing an M-80 at his head when he went down I knew I was at minimum going to get a tree switch ass whipping. he woke up couldn't hear for awhile but then we continued to throw m80's and launch bottle rockets at each other.

    I also clearly remember blowing up hundreds of dollars of GI JOE, and COBRA men and material in my backyard. I almost blew up our garage with an M250 I bought from a store up the street where you could get any type of illegal firecracker you wanted amongst other illegal accoutremau like AK's mac 10's, Weed, and ghetto candy.

    But through all the neighborhood fireworks wars none of us ever lost any fingers. so what's your story? also any eyes shot out with BB guns count too.

    I'd imagine life without fingers on an internet forum is tough.

    Pffft, I wish you could buy fireworks today that were capable of blowing off digits. Shit is so weak you can't even blow up a frog or something like that.
    Back in the day my buddy's Dad was always getting these things, he called em quarter sticks and half sticks of dynamite, but where really just a cardboard tube filled with powder and hot glued on each end. Things were fuckin amazing. Pretty sure his Dad made them himself and just didn't want to get in trouble, so refused to say where they came from.

    Not me. But I know a guy who blew three fingers off of his left hand with a dynamite blasting cap while at work. He only has a thumb and forefinger on that hand now but is still able to use it pretty well.

    never blew any fingers off. I did almost cause my brother to die from a heart attack when he was about 9 because I took a string of black cats and lit them in my moms stew pot, setting it on his bed while he was sleeping. still one of my most awesome and vivid memories.

    Still have all my fingers, but one time I had the brilliant idea to light a firecracker with a sparkler. When I pulled the firecracker away from the sparkler, I could just see the lit fuse disappear. The next moment I had a ring in my ear, a numb hand and residue in my eyes.

    Surprisingly I don't know anyone who did. Maybe because fireworks were illegal in my state so getting them was a pain in the ass as a kid. We did set a lot of shit on fire though.

    Went to grade school with a kid that almost lost his penis after his sister dropped a string of lady fingers down his pants. He ended up in the ER with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his upper legs and groin area.

    The guy has 3 kids now, so I would assume everything works, but my GF knows a girl that dated him as an adult that said she refused to give him head because his D looked like a science experiment :icon_sad:

    Not exactly fire crackers, but this Burmese kid offered to stick his arm in a spud gun and let us fire it, it skinned his arm and threw his shoulder out, funny thing is he never hung around us much after that

    a buddy of mine growing up figured out how to get the silver powder out of bottle rockets separate from the black powder. him, another friend of mine, and myself used to work on bricks of those until we gathered enough to make magnum sized sticks. they were pretty ghetto with rubber bands, tape, and those fuses for hobby model rockets, but effective and impressive nonetheless.

    we never got into any trouble, but we did blow the neighborhood narc lady's mailbox inside out and across the street with one. blew apart the wooden post too. if i live to be 100 i will never forget how loud the report was when that thing went off, or how hard we were all laughing while running down the street on our way back home.

    the original guy eventually tried to talk my other friend and i into helping him try to make something out of ping-pong balls, drano, and gasoline cans...but we wouldn't bite. i stopped hanging out with him not long after that, so i don't know what ever happened to him. he most likely ended up in juvie.

    god how could i have forgotten those? i think we used to use wd-40 cans. we were such delinquent heathens.

    this is why video games and the internet aren't a bad thing imo... helps to keep all the kids today occupied in the house, so they aren't outside doing all of that destructive shit.
