    Fireworks on Christmas Eve??

    It's midnight in my neighborhood, and people are setting off fireworks? Aside from being highly illegal within the Houston city limits, why on Christmas Eve? I always thought it was a time for spending time with family and friends, not making noise and disturbing your neighbors in the middle of the night. Help me understand this seemingly ignorant behaviour? Am I missing something?,,,,BD

    it's not seemingly ignorant behavior. It is ignorant behavior. Listen, this country is getting stupider by the day and any chance we get to blow **** up, we take. It doesn't matter if it makes sense or not.

    Case in point. There is now a show about 2 guys that destroy stuff with their bare hands. You ever seen Idiocracy? Yeah, welcome to the future...

    I see the bright side fireworks are more expensive then ***** cartridges which is good for the economy and said fireworks do not come back out of the sky as high-speed steel jacketed slugs. Lots of countries celebrate all sorts of things with loud noises. In which line what is the immigrant content of your neighborhood? Or O Tempora, O Mores. or customs change with the times.

    They spotted a flying sleigh and eight tiny reindeer so they started shooting at it.
