    Worst Fourth Of July

    Post by Extertionist on Wed Jul 04, 2012 12:33 pm

    So as some of you may be aware, Colorado, the state in which I live, has a tremendous wildfire and because of that there are no fireworks today, not for me anyway. So, so very bummed.

    You can make ghetto fireworks! Just get a bunch of flammable stuff and chuck it into the fire, see how good they burn/explode!

    There is a very strict fire ban colorado, basically the only flame that's allowed is a lighter or a cooking appliance.

    meh, salt + fire = blue flames. lighter fluid + fire = big flames.

    salt + lighter fluid + fire + launching system = firework?

    I'm usually not about government regulating the fun of the people but in this case I think that I side with the authorities. Seeing what's been going on in your state - from afar, admittedly - is scary. Best not to chance it.

    See Dan gets it. On a side note how come it's always the fellow forest hunters that back me?

    There was a topic about how forest hunters stay sane, it was concluded that we dont. I think that covers it.

    there are also some other household products you can use to make cool coloured flames if I remember correctly (metal powders are good I think..) its the propulsion and ignition systems I see an issue with. gota be careful homebrewing fireworks...

    Exactly, it's insanely dry here and a cinder even could lite up my house. Oh, and one more thing, I live about 50 miles away from the fire and there is a smokey fog outside of my house right now, people with lung problems are advised to stay inside and there are only 4 places in Colordao that are actually doing fireworks.

    I laugh at this, because 2 summers ago one of the yearly California wildfires was a mile from my house. THAT is when you start freaking out about fire.

    Though the ash is a massive problem, so do stay in shelter.

    Whoa man, that sucks. On a different note I heard that since Colorado Springs was evacuated some kids started looting houses and tearing up furniture, so very despicable.

    Yeah, evacuating sucked BIG cajones. Luckily the worst we had to deal with was some coyotes deciding to use our yard as a peacock buffet. So many feathers :shock:

    I love rainy weather, except we have to sacrifice a virgin each year to get it and this year we couldn't find a legal one.

    Colorado used to be peaceful, until the Fire Nation attacked.
