We all know that fireworks can be fun, but they are dangerous and in some States they are (perhaps rightfully) banned.
So, I've been thinking. How can Americans have fun on the Fourth without getting their fingers burnt?
Well, in England when I was growing up we had "indoor fireworks" and it appears that they still sell them.
So forget your dangerous displays if you football team wins.
Just stay indoors and live life to the full.

Oh, wait... I just realized, the needles are dangerous.
darn, it is just so much fun, too.
Ian, your childhood must have been dreadful. No fireworks indeed. To never know the joy, the excitement of putting the match to fuse. The anticipation as the fuse burns down toward it's intended destination and then the inevitable explosion, the fire, the sparkles the THRILL. Dreadful, positively dreadful. Oh well, pip pip, stiff upper lip and all that rot.

What used to keep us kids in line back then was if I mis-behaved, I was told I would be sent to a reform school. That sounded pretty scary back then to me. I did have lots of fun though.
I am definitely not a pro plumber, but I am a pro crastinator
We used to fish with cherry bombs. take your whole hand off.
Those snakes are for outside use only! It probably says it on the packaging, it is not good to breathe in and you could set your house on fire.
My mum threatened to phone the police. Once she pretended to.I was told I would be sent to a reform school. That sounded pretty scary back then to me.
Mom's, mum's, mother's are not supposed to be anything but kind. The mother-child bond is a very important one.
