  • On July 2, 1994, at the ripe age of 13, me and 1 friend stepped into the street with the crackling roman candles to have a roman candle war. We were about 20 ft away from each other. Fireballs started flying. The next thing i see is a green plasma-ball coming at my face faster than i could react. I must've mean yelling something or screaming, because the next thing i know is that this thing has went in my mouth and was INHALED....yes read it again.

  • "Beer isn't enough for kids these days"

    My parents told me about how they used to do this when they were younger. This is nothing new.

  • Blah blah irresponsible...whatever. We did this with bottle rockets when I was a teen and we had Daisy BB Gun fights in the woods too.

    Stupid, but part of being a kid. Man I miss those days.

    • @Alrightythen I hear you. Unfortunately (as an adult) I and some drunken buddies did this once with bottle rockets, a couple of them were bigger and uncle Don took one to the eye (luckily the pointed plastic tip had came loose and fallen off earlier). Broke his glasses and we had to go to emergency room, lucky no permanent damage. Worst part was hearing all the women yelling that we were a bad influence for the kids. Oh well, impossible to be a good influence all the time. Felt bad for uncle More..

    • @dontlikethiscall800crybby - Let's be clear..doing this as a teen is excusable because your dumb and have not learned ramifications for actions. Doing it as an adult?...Well then I have to say you should know better.

    • @Alrightythen You did notice that I started off with the word "unfortunately", which points out the obvious, we knew better but did it anyway. Thank you for pointing out the obvious in case anyone else missed it though.

  • Kids "these days?"

    We did this when I was a kid (And stupid, like most kids) We would have both Roman candle wars and bottle rocket wars (those cheap small bottle rockets you could buy in like 50 packs for a few bucks).

    I took one of those roman candle bulbs to the middle of the face once, I smelt the gunpowder/burning smell for about 4 solid days, no amount of washing and scrubbing got rid of it.

    Kids will do stupid things, it's part of growing up.

  • I remember the time he was challenged by old Thad to a duel. Your daddy bein' the challenged body, he had the choice of weapons, and it being the fourth of july, says bass, calm as you please, "I choose Roman Candles!" Well, sir, they stepped off the ten paces, lit the roman candles with their cigars, and they started popping. Old Thad, dark as thunder, Bass laughing and yelling, those blue and red balls of fire bouncing off him. Him laughing so hard he was missing Thad by six feet. F More..

  • Back in the 80's this super hot chick wanted me to have a roman candle duel with her at the beach one summer night. We battled it out and I set her hair on fire. In the 80's they used a lot of hair spray. I put the fire out and she thought the whole thing was funny. We ended up together that night and became friends to this day. Just wear eye protection and wet your hair.

  • *Duel

    Not to be rude, but even the tag is spelled incorrectly. The word "dual" is synonymous with "double" or "two-fold" and not "fight". And yes, it is bitchy, but I also wish people would stop spelling the opposite of win as "loose", which is the opposite of tight.

    The original intent of the Internet was not to dumb-down the population..., or was it?

    I apologize if your mis-spelling is intentional and therefore, of being a douchebag. I More..

  • As kids, we discovered that you can throw bottle-rockets; and if the timing is right, you can get them to fly more or less where you want, more or less parallel to the ground.

    Basically you hold it by the end of the stick, let the fuse get well started, then toss it outward underhand.

    A friend and I bought a few gross each of these wonderful toys, stationed ourselves atop a pair of small knolls about 50 yards apart; and began a firefight.

    The perfect shot is where your rocket explodes More..
