Fireworks.....

#1
Gotta be up at a stupid time in the morning, so I thought better have a really early night.
$hit, I forgot it's november the 5th bloody fireworks all night, it's like beruit outside won't be able to sleep.
Then I remembered, it's a 'religious festival' not nov 5th... thats ok then, must not complain eh? :evil:

This is because of Diwali, I assume?
When I lived near Southall it used to look and sound like a war zone. Bangs, flashes & crashes. Sometimes even screams - those were the best because it was some silly c0ck who'd been making his own fireworks :lol:

I could not possibly comment on the particular 'religious festival', suffice it to say: CNUTS :x

Strange thing; fireworks frighten the bejeezus out of my old dog but rifles and shotguns don't worry him in the slightest.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em; GBFO barrage at 0300 lasting for several hours and sounding like the raid on Dresden. If you're good with fireworks etc, you can set them all up then snooze in your chair with your Amplivox on whilst the neighbours wake up thinking there's a war on... :twisted:

Am chuffed to bit that fireworks have begun so early.
It's great to see my OH flinching and looking over his shoulder every five mins all night after a tour to the sandpit.
NOT.

Some imbecile has been selling them to the local turds since August, akin to giving whisky to the indians...

Ah, the random firework season has started. Fan-bloody-tastic! Random explosions from now until New Year. Just ban the fecking things.
Lets not. Either learn to live with it or devise a revenge plan. Sick of "banning" pleas.

Our local shops have had fireworks on display for a couple of weeks, with big signs saying they will not sell any until 1st November. So far it's been quiet on the streets, but we don't have a big community who might celebrate other festivals.

i do agree that there needs to be more control over the feckwits that buy them, as i've just moved back from london i've seen the problem there caused by fireworks being available for atleast a third of the year, and are apparently only available to people under the age of 16, where the fireworks at being thrown and fired at any random person/animal that happens to be within a 20' radius of the nobheads who bought them. what is amazing is that on atleast 2 occasions i've seen a lit firework go back into the off licence that sold it, and still they carry on selling them

In the pub on friday and some young lads walked in asking to use the toilet, when they were told no there for customers only they accepted it and walked out only to come back a minute later and lob 3 airbombs through the door

I suppose you'd be all for it if a squaddie had asked to use the bog, been refused and decided to lob 3 grenades in? :D

it wasnt me its just the pubs policy, they get a lot of tea leafs in trying to stash stuff in the loos for a further date or they put on clothes stolen from shops up the road, cheeky bastards made me spill me pint, not a happy bunny :p
