Have a Safe and Insane 4th

Don’t put accelerants on bonfires? Says who? You’re not my real dad. You’re not my supervisor. Who died and put you in charge? Yeah, well, you and whose army is going to stop me?

Enjoy the fireworks, to whatever extent your local government allows. Raise a glass to the spirit of freedom, as long as you don’t get on the wrong side of the law for public intoxication. Celebrate the freest country in the world, while being careful not to say anything that might attract the attention of the NSA, FBI, IRS, CIA, or other surveillance agency whose existence is currently being kept secret.Create some joyful booms and bangs of your own, subject of course to those 20,000+ federal, state, and local laws (which surely you’ve memorized), and the completely scrupulously fair and understandable regulations of the ATF.

    Yeah! and I can add that tossing the used turkey fryer oil on a bonfire can have surprisingly robust effects….

    Enjoy this celebration of liberty by setting off the fireworks your government allows (assuming you live in a place where the government allows you set off any fireworks at all).

    Our local law enforcement “winks” at out of state (illegal) fireworks, unless something goes wrong. The beauty of living in a small town.

    Jeez, stupid hippies, any fool knows you use diesel not gasoline.

    Nope.
    Diesel lacks the “crack” of the low ignition point of gasoline, especially if you enhance it with a box of mothball crystals.

    Some years ago in my high school years, we used to drive outside of our small town and hang out at a concrete low water bridge. We almost always built a fire, drank a few beers, sometimes fished and generally had good harmless fun. On one of our trips to the bridge we found that someone had dumped ~50 small pine trees near our hangout. Probably remnants of someone’s unsold Christmas tree lot. Of course it did not take us long to decide we needed to burn all these trees at once. We drug them all down to the concrete bridge and stacked them as high as possible before dropping a match at the base. That pile damn near exploded. For a moment we thought the whole world was on fire. No accelerant required.

    Mothballs??? Heheh. I am not too old to try that!

    Way back in the old daze I heard tell that a person could take a length of speaker wire, skin 2″ off the end and wrap it around the center wire on the coil of a car that had hood springs (to hold it open) and then fish the wire back through the cross members and such to the gas cap behind the license plate. There, you skin about 6″ off the wire, twist it, then send it down the gas pipe a couple feet. Then you drop a couple handfuls of mothball crystals down the pipe. An average coil generates about 30,000 volts instantly and the crystals will turn 93 octane gas into 200+ octane.
