    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 →
