Why do you all have fireworks this time of year?

We have fireworks because of this chappy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Fawkes  ;)

And also because people like to scare dogs with explosions and flashy lights, plus there is the ulitmate challenge to have the biggest firework known to the backyard man  ;)

Squaddie injures backside launching firework
By Michael Horsnell of The Times
 
 
 
The blue touchpaper was lit and everyone retired immediately, just as the trusted Firework Code recommends.

 
 
That is, except for the squaddie recently returned home from a tour of duty in Iraq who thought Bonfire Night needed enlivening.

The soldier was on all fours with his trousers down and a certain part of his anatomy pointing at the stars with a black cat thunderbolt rocket firmly in place.

The stunt, which mimicked a scene in the controversial film Jackass: The Movie, went off with a bang at the end of the display in Sunderland but it backfired on the the intrepid squaddie.
