    "Watermelon sacrificed for July 4th safety"

    Even the title made me LOL. The NYSP bomb squad blew up a watermelon to demonstrate the dangers of fireworks. [video at link]

    Hell, I've been doing that since I was a little kid. Also dropped Cherry Bombs into those old Tin Garbage Cans (most of you don't remember them). Toilets gave you the most "bang for your buck." Yeah, fireworks can be dangerous, but us kids were braver than those today. We also had more sense as what would hurt us. We survived to make this Nation great without umteenmillion Govt Agencies telling us what to do. Ride a bike without a helmet? You bet. Didn't know what they were. Be Careful out there when you pop those wimp fireworks you get today.

    I would argue NYPD demonstrated how to enjoy fireworks safely. They also show how much fun it is to blow stuff up!
