    This is a video of a group of friends playing Mario Kart battle mode in real life by running around shooting Roman candles and trying to pop each other's balloons. I am into this. Shooting fireworks at friends is one of life's simple pleasures and if the next president tries ... / Continue →

    This is a video of inventor Colin Furze demonstrating the firework rocket launcher he built. You just jam a giant firework rocket down the pipe, and a trigger connected to a gas tank ignites the rocket and sends it on its way. I love fireworks so much. If I could marry firew... / Continue →

    This is the giant rocket firework wheel Colin Furze built to celebrate his 2,000,000th Youtube subscriber. Congratulations. I had a Youtube channel once but it got banned for copyright violations, despite the fact I filmed all those videos off MY television. I PAID FOR THAT ... / Continue →

    This is the Roman candle minigun made by two dudes in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin (previously: some other guy's dual Roman candle miniguns). It shoots 1,001 rounds in about 45 seconds and consists of seven 'Cyber Cannon' Roman candles taped around a piece of 3-inch PVC pipe wit... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy who made himself dual Roman candle machine guns. They look glorious. I would love to be there with a metal trashcan lid trying to deflect shots back at him. Throw a keg of beer and some hot dogs in the mix and that's pretty much exactly what I want t... / Continue →

    This is Sky Ladder, a pyrotechnic display created by Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang to celebrate his grandmother's 100th birthday. It was achieved by igniting a gunpowder-covered wire ladder danging some 500-meters (~1,640-feet) from a weather balloon. The result is spectacular,... / Continue →

    This is a 'Bad Dog' firework that produces a monster turd out of its flaming ass after the fuse is lit. It's basically just a black snake firework with some bonus crackles at the end. Still, the flaming ass: I think we've all been there. Being doubled over on the toilet in p... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber bra1Nphuk (I see what you did there) launching an overturned wheelbarrow almost fifty feet with the help of a Cobra 6 firecracker, which packs 48.5-grams of explosive powder (versus 2-3 grams for an M-80). The landing is most spectacular. If I were... / Continue →

    This is a video of a quadrocopter with roman candles attached chasing after two dudes in the snow (previously: this version). The screencap above was taken right before red shorts takes a direct hit to the back. Obviously, they encourage you to not try this at home. Obviousl... / Continue →

    This is a video from Slow Mo Lab of a firecracker exploding in the middle of a rubber band ball, filmed at 25,000 frames per second. For reference, that's 25,000 times faster than one frame per second, which is about how long the exposure took the last time I used a pinhole c... / Continue →

    This is a video of a quadrocopter with two Roman candles attached shooting at some guy wearing a crash helmet. He gets hit several times. He also screams like a sissy. Seriously? They're just Roman candles -- how many times have you ever heard of somebody getting hurt by a R... / Continue →

    This is a video from Thailand of a giant circular rocket taking to the skies as part of a rocket festival. For scale, you can see a couple people to the lower left of the rocket. My God I wish I could have been a part of that festival. You think the rocket's powerful enough ... / Continue →

    It's not actually a billion, it's just a lot. I'm not really good with numbers over a thousand. Or letters past N. That tail end of the alphabet can be tricky. Any letters hanging around Q, V and Z aren't to be trusted in my book. Keep going for the video, but skip to 1:20... / Continue →

    This is a video from an Italian fireworks display in which an 'accident' made the entire display go off simultaneously. Obviously, this isn't the first time this has happened and there are always a couple Fourth of July displays here in the US that suffer the same fate. Of co... / Continue →

    This is a video of the new Guinness World Record for largest firework (previously: these ones). The behemoth at 3:25 in the video measures 4-feet in diameter and weighs 465kg (~1,024-lbs). That's over half a ton, and definitely powerful enough to support the weight of a grown... / Continue →

    This is a video of Colin Furze (of homemade Pyro flamethrowers, Wolverine claws and Magneto boots fame) hydroforming himself a steel safety suit then using it to stand in the middle of a fireworks display. Basically exactly what I wish I did all day instead of working. Still,... / Continue →

    This is the video resulting from Jos Stiglingh flying a drone with a GoPro attached through a West Palm Beach fireworks display. It's inspired me to rent a hot air balloon and watch the local fireworks display from the sky next year. "They will never let you do that." I don'... / Continue →

    This is a video showing the making of and display of 'Yonshakudama' fireworks. Each 4-foot shell weighs 420kg (~930-pounds) and costs $1,500. I am going to buy one, and I have every intention of riding it into the night sky. "You will die." I WILL TRAVEL TO NEVER NEVERLAND.... / Continue →

    This is a video of one of Vat19's 5-pound Gummi Bears producing a fireworks extravaganza in hot potassium chlorate. I remember my high school chemistry teacher was going to perform this same experiment. The only problem is he was going to use Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, and I... / Continue →

    This is a slow-motion video of a Phantom camera attached to a drone flying through a fireworks display. I kept waiting (read: hoping/praying) for it to get hit by a mortar, but it never did. My favorite shots were the ones that looked like you just pushed the warp drive butto... / Continue →
