A Global Collection of New Years 2015 Fireworks

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m not one to do “resolutions,” per se — I haven’t quite figured out yet how not to disappoint myself on day two of the year, so I skirt the activity altogether!  Since I went to bed around 11pm last night, I wanted to see some of the fireworks from last night.  Below is a collection of New Years 2015 fireworks from cities like Dubai (which was AWESOME), NYC, London, San Francisco, Chicago, Brazil…  oh America, we don’t party like the rest of the world parties.  Let’s all at least resolve to loosen the hell up in 2015, America.  We look like jackasses across the globe for the BS we see in our news.

Check these out, this is some awesome stuff!

How Fireworks Happen – A Great Infographic!

Sweet, have you seen this?  I saw it at Neatorama first – it is WAY too cool not to share!

Check it out!  Original link here:

15,000 Fireworks, at the Same Time. Awesome.

So, the question that has been posed here is:

What happens when you ignite 15,000 fireworks at the same time?

204 Bottle Rockets. Enough said.

I know that July 4th is over, but I had no internet! I am just now catching up on some excellent stuff!

Check out this video, I found it on Make. This guy 200k 204 bottle rockets and fired them off at the same time. This is the kind of stuff I would do if I had 204 bottle rockets. This is also why I don’t have 204 bottle rockets.
