WOOPSIE: San Diego Shoots Off Its Entire Fireworks Show In 15-Seconds (And What A Show It Was!)

July 5, 2012


So apparently "technical errors" caused San Diego's 'Big Bay Boom' fireworks display last night to be set off in 15-seconds instead of over the course of 15-minutes. I'm not sure if somebody accidentally typed "15" into the seconds window instead of the minutes one on the control computer, but let's just assume that's what happened. Something else that happened: my dog Chloe freaking the f*** out all night because she hates the sound of fireworks (and thunder). I seriously got next to no sleep, and the few times I did manage to nod off WITHOUT FAIL she'd pee during the few minutes I was out. Plus one time shat.

Hit the jump for the fireworks extravaganza!

Thanks to T.J. and Matthew, one of which compared the malfunction to his sex life (it was Matthew, T.J. can go all night if he wants).

    Did you hear those people? They loved it! It's not a fail, just an inverted win.
