Happy 4th of July 2014!

Every year, both professionals and amateurs alike “celebrate” this country’s “independence” day by blowing up fireworks (made in China).

We’ve been real lucky in these parts – as no major disasters or accidents have occurred.

But for those of you who might dabble in the pyrotechnics this year – here’s a few video reminders of what can go wrong…

And here’s a cool fireworks “experiment” some kids filmed with 500 roman candles bound together. NOT recommended for Hoboken – because if this was attempted here, an entire city block would burn down.

Enjoy your long-weekend regardless!
