I dunno.. I think the prize for ‘biggest fireworks’ goes to the ‘oopsie’ over in San Diego:

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Well, that’s partly why they have them on barges in the middle of the river.

Also, that was a controlled oops. It was caused by a computer malfunction, but every one of the launchers dutifully perfomed exactly as it was supposed to. They just happened to perfectly function all at the same time.

But yes.. firework explosions are… scary. Very. There’s a couple videos out there that emphasize that rather well.
