One Independence Day I had National Park Service "beaver dam busters" in my possession. During a fierce battle with the neighbors across the street, in which the exchange of pop bottle rockets was fierce, I threw one of those onto their yard. Couldn't believe the boom, or the brightness of the center of the burst! The grass was dry, so it set their yard on fire. They put it out with beer.
In my neighborhood back in the U.S. we would have bottle rocket fights until one year, a guy about 18 or so, had about 10 of them in his pocket, and, you guessed it, got hit by another one. Not pretty. He was ok, but did spend the night in the hospital. Not too smart on our end.
