My bowels are already pretty loose. No way in hell I'm watching that.

*click*

Great, now I have this morning's french toast, eggs, coffee, and two strips of bacon staring back up at me from my shoes.

Oddly, I feel the need for a cigarette, and I don't even smoke.

That was pretty boring until they all started going off at once. If anything, the misfire improved the show.

I'm sure it was not very safe right next to it, but those were very small fireworks. Just rockets and no mortars as far as I can tell.

I like the dude who emerges out of the mess at the 0:44 second mark - ZERO sense of urgency.

The one guy just stood there with his arms folded? I'm not sure whether to be impressed by his incredible bravery or dazzled by his daftness.

I'm guessing that's Michael Bay who was "vacationing" in Scotland.

It is understood that £2,000 worth of fireworks were involved.

Ugh, rockets...just say NO, they're trouble waiting to happen.

Stick to using the nice, safe mortars.

Neato! I enjoyed the close shave the cameraman got towards the end. I'm still more impressed with the San Diego 2012 misfire that launched three barges of fireworks all at once, five minutes before the show was supposed to being. Good times. Soiled pants.

Oui, Oui.
Upon seeing that dude traipse about in the middle of that simulated carpet bombing,
I could only think of the following words from the great philosophers 'Geto Boys',
and I do quote:

And real gangsta-ass nubians don't run for shiat
'cause real gangsta-ass nubians can't even run fast

The two guys who got my attention were the guy running away on fire and the guy with his giant steel balls watching the thing with fireworks hitting the ground next to him and HIM MOVING TO THAT SPOT AS THOUGH TO SAY "COME ON THEN, DO YOUR WORST!"

I give it 2 out of 5 San Diego 4th of Julys.

At the beginning it was heading for about a 0.2 San Diego 4th of Julys. San Diego set the bar immensely high.

FTA: "A rocket at the Pentland Community Centre display misfired and ricocheted into the remaining fireworks, setting them all off at the same time."

So it basically started as a British firework display - understated and slightly dull - then became American for a brief while.

At least in San Diego we set them off over water, so when they all go off at once things don't catch on fire on the ground around the launch site.

Still, pretty cool to watch

The best part is as he is calming standing there a rocket careens into the fence and explodes in the camera man's face.

That guy in the middle of the video who had shiat exploding all around him was straight up honey badger. A mortor explodes 3 feet to his left and he casualy strolls a couple of feet to the right.

That guy had 0 farks to give.

Given that you obviously have never been to Edinburgh you don't know that huge fireworks displays are the norm - they're done for everything, from the start of the winter festival, Hogmanay, every night of the Tattoo, last night of the International Festival, and any high days and holidays in between. Just look at youtube for Edinburgh fireworks. The news story here is about a small bonfire in a small suburb, the sort of thing that's organised by a local youth group or church or whatever.

Meh, bet it was less dramatic in person than it was on video.

Apparently, someone neglected to foil their quickmatch. And I didn't see many rockets...looked like it was mostly cakes with a finale rack or two.
