Freedom in the United States of America doesn’t just mean expressing your freedom of speech or your right to petition the government. Sometimes, it’s about the freedom to fail … and fail we do … especially, it seems, when beer and explosives are involved.

I don’t know any Portuguese curse words, but I’d venture a guess that this video from São Paulo contains some choice epithets. Never, ever, ever hold the fireworks in your hand. Just don’t.

The San Diego Fourth of July Fireworks Fail of 2012. Computer or human failure, you be the judge, and every single firework detonated at the beginning of the "show," which lasted about 15 seconds. A giant flickering lightbulb and that was it.

The magnesium video is a fake. Look at the guys shirt before and after the explosion. They're different.

I recall the Bicentennial fireworks display at San Francisco.
The fog rolled in before the show, and all we could see was shades of pink, blue, and green.

I recall there was a series of very funny firework safety video put out by, I think, Denmark, a while back featuring a group of incompetent terrorists that were trying to use unlicensed fireworks are the ammunition for their jihad.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find them again. Anyone remember those video?

"A Little Too Much Magnesium" Was my favorite. What a Maroon! I laugh harder the more I watch it!

What's even funnier are the vids on people deep frying turkeys for Thanksgiving.
