It's almost July 4th, around which there is a two week period when moronic Americans put on an incendiary display of their idiocy using fireworks. I, for one, won't have any feelings of sympathy when I read the usual reports of people blowing off fingers, ears, or being blinded by their own stupid fireworks. This is evolution in action. But in case there are any morons out there with any capacity for reason, consider that fireworks are a nightmare for veterans with PTSD, a nightmare for wild animals, and a nightmare for domestic animals. If you don't care about any of those three groups, then please go ahead and blow your thumbs off, burn an eyeball out of your face, or cause your house to burn to the ground. Your absence in next years Idiot Festival will not be missed.
The Incendiary Idiocy is About to Begin
