tonight in the uk is bonfire night, quite possibly one of the best nights of the year. I go to Brockham Bonfire wich is 2mins from where i live. They have the largest firework display in the UK and possibly the largest bonfire. 20,000 people go. I love bonfire night. The fireworks were so good!
Die Guy Fawkes Die!!!!!

Take a pic for me of the streets tomorrow then, full of animals that suffered from heart attacks.

Sorry but bonfire night is on the 5 november just to clear it up. Smile

I'm not terribly in favor of it. I think Thomas Bates, Robert Wintour, Christopher Wright, John Wright, Thomas Percy, Guy Fawkes, Robert Catesby and Thomas Wintour might have had the right idea. Wink

You guys are lucky. Here in New Zealand, we have crappy fireworks, and all the good ones were banned.

I went to a display last night - I am more interested in how they make the fireworks do what they do than what they look like. I was bored after about 5 minutes - good job I took my hip flask.

Sadly, no chavs got hit by any of the rockets.

I am really amused. You are upset by a group who tried to overthrow one monarchy while using an avatar and name of someone who overthrew another.

Personally, I'd prefer Nicholas II to James I. But, that's just me. Wink

The show in Cambridge is weak...

I had planned to blow up a mini-parliament to commemorate the day, but got too busy and didn't have a chance to do it this year...next year for sure!

I have mixed feelings about bonfire night. I remember being a kid and enjoying the displays in my back garden. Animals do suffer at this time of year though through fright and being cought and tortured by yobs. I think there should be more restrictions on the sale of fireworks but it is a time for kids to look in the sky in awe and its all about the kids isn't it. I find it quite scarey to stand at my window in the evening while all the fireworks are going off. I'm sure the sounds are not disimilar to that of a war zone. Our boys in Iraq will be experiencing the same sounds 24-7 but of course the bangs will be coming from 70MM mortar rounds instead of a supermarket family firework budget pack.

In conclusion firework sale should not be banned but the sales should be more regulated. Refusing to sell fireworks to someone clutching a can of special brew would be a good start. Confused

good idea mate, i prefer proper displays rather then the ones you buy cos they are always crap.

After seeing how stupidly some people can be with their computers...even when sober, Selling fireworks to the average yutz seems a really stupid thing to do.

Now this is really dangerous territory Shocked

Mentioning King James could be both, too political and /or too religious Read

Now, what's the punishment for this again... Umm... ..being burnt at the stake or having one's head chopped off?
