Today, my neighbor and I learned why fireworks are illegal in city limits. This lesson was learned shortly after a roman candle came crashing through my second story window. FML

this FML reminds me of a movie where a girls aunt was setting off illegal fireworks with her family. the little girl ran straight toward them yelling "BRIGHT LIGHTS!!!" :D

haha this one remind me of the time my drunk uncle shot himself in thr nuts with a roman candle! hahhaha

Get him to pay for the window and any other damage, if he doesn't just sue (:

Ever been hit by one? It will make you never want to play Harry Potter again.

cause of idiots like you, they need to make fireworks illegal.

op didn't set it off, the neighbor did. learn to read before criticizing.

If mods can delete comments, surely they can fix this one...

smurf people like u should be kicked out of society. youd be more usefull that way.

Are we getting into fantasy now? Little blue people should be shunned from society? Who are you talking to anyways? No specific subject of your sentence and horrible grammar makes you a lower life-form than most others living on this planet.

u people are assuming he wasn't shooting the fireworks. no exact way to tell so no néed for the pointless bashing.

he said "came crashing through" not "went crashing through" meaning it was coming to him, not from him. It's pretty simple to figure it out if you think about it for a second.

btw it's " no specific subject "in" your sentence".

actually, it makes sense either way. so 20 isn't completely wrong. :)

yeah maybe I'm dumb but I think it can go either way...

um... it's pretty easy to see by 'roman candle came crashing through my second story window' that op was in the room at the time. if it said something like I watched as a roman candle crashed through my second story window you could assume op lit it.

Why would the neighbor also learn the lesson if the OP shot it into his or her own window? And also, OP said that it "came" into his or her window. If OP was outside watching it, he or she would have said it "went" into his or her window.

Haha. I can see this happening to me.

AVADA KEDAVRA! :) Voldemort threw the candle--I mean wand through the window.

who'd you piss off? Cause that, sir, was not an accident. People tend to aim their roman candles at targets and seeing as you're on the second can understand from there.

Thanks for saying it twice; didn't get it the first time.

I think he was quoting the song, genius.

It's a reference to a song, you freaking 12 year old.

first time sparks flew in ur house ;)

so there I was, in the kitchen making a sandwhich, minding my own business. . .

So, you're saying they're illegal because government knows that a lot of people are too stupid to handle them safely?

it's like a seatbelt law. or helmet law. protecting your citizens from themselves without infringing on human rights is the duty of government. the ban could also be in effect only during specific conditions (such as dry weather, which would be a no-brainer).

No, it's nothing like those laws at all. If you don't wear a helmet or your seatbelt, the only person you risk injuring is you. If you fire off illegal fireworks, you risk injuring yourself and other people, setting things on fire, etc. Steven, they are illegal because they are dangerous. And they are dangerous because people are too stupid to use them safely.

^ so it's a law to protect citizens from themselves? I ask. Why can we not simply expel those who are so stupid that they endanger those around them instead of making an object illegal. Or have a training course so that they can make fireworks illegal. Really if you aren't some drunken idiot fireworks are not dangerous.

No, as I said before it's a law to protect other people and their shit from idiots, as well as themselves. I have to say I like the idea of expelling idiots, but it isn't practical. That would only leave about 40 people here, and then who would refill the soda machines?

53 is right, if it wasn't for people like OP's number who would do all the small jobs that make this country function?

Roman candles don't "crash" through anything unless some idiot throws it. It's a fountain type, not a rocket.

That's what I was thinking. They don't shoot off enough debris for it to crash through a window.

Candles from Rome can be quite heavy, and could easily break a window.

OllieRobs i seriously hope you're joking.
