Geeks Tie Fireworks to Kites, Not as Explosive as You Might Think

As a kid, any time we could buy fireworks was a great time of year. I once lobbied to move to Florida where you could buy fireworks year round, but my parents never agreed. I used to tie bottle rockets to just about anything that would sit still long enough. I never was able to launch my bike into orbit, but I did once melt my hair in a few spots.

Recently, a few geeks took some kites, fireworks, and hit the beach at night to set about making a flying pyrotechnic display. I honestly expected more mayhem in the video than we got. They obviously aren’t experts at blowing things up. Regardles,, the video is cool enough to look at.

I would have strapped a couple of big bottle-rockets to the kite’s wing tips, an artillery shell to the center, and by god everyone on the beach would have known it was a holiday… and ran for their lives. I guess it’s a good thing we only get fireworks twice a year in my area.
