An All-American 4th of July disaster (video)

Wisdom Quarterly, Independence Day Special (Take that, United Kingdom!)

While UFOs were being summoned by Robert Bingham over MacArthur Park in the Miracle Mile district of Los Angeles, the rest of the country was doing its best to send streaming rockets to repel them with bedazzling fire shows. Here are just a few fantastical fireworks' shows by do-it-yourselfers who reject the words "safe and sane" or "leave it to the professionals." In the biggest blunder, farther south, next to the Mexican border, there was a major malfunction. It is being called the "Big Bay Boom" that went bust. San Diego planned on a spectacular show, but a "computer glitch" resulted in a spectacle as all the fireworks went off at once creating a mushroom cloud of American excess. It sort of looked like Fukushima.
