would have been funny when he went to the hospital with his parents and the doc came to them and said, "I don't know how to say this. Your son is retarded."

Heh. Here, it's like annual event on certain time of the year although there were few cases that been reported by the media in recent years.

It shows that creativity and idiocy are dangerous mix. And, holding/improvising your own fireworks is not a cool way to impress your peer(s)/girl(s) /and your community. One thing for sure, you will be famous overnight via losing/maim any part of your body through fireworks.

Is it just me or is every generation getting worse at playing with fire and explosives.

"The instructions! They do nothing!"

He should count himself lucky. I knew a guy who died from inadvertently setting off home made explosives few years back. Literally nothing left to bury. Though, it was a wee bit stronger than fireworks. I think they said it was the equivalent of something like 10 kg dynamite on the news, and he was leaning over it as it went off. So let his story be a lesson.

I've heard and watched a lot of news about kids who lost their hands or any other exposed part of their body before, with fire works. Mostly whenever New Year comes.
Oh well.. Poor kid.

Meh, things happened. It's pretty common, you know. Especially during Eid celebration here. They know it's dangerous but they still play them. I guess it's their loss.

exactly.

Heres a story.
One kid (10 years old?) was playing some fireworks. and it was rumored that he was playing with a mix of Diesel and the Firecrackers. i dont know the details much, but he was absent due to being in the hospital. His face was burned so i hear.

Lovely story. Next time, think my little foolish kiddies.

but a limb being blown off was never heard of here (i think)

It seems there are still geniuses out there that wish to live life without regrets.

Good for him. I hoped he died though.

Is he dead yet? What's taking him so long?

I won't say I don't feel even the slightest amount of pity for me, but someone to do something like this without even thinking of what could happen was probably asking for it.

Mayhaps if he's lucky enough to salvage what's left of his hand, he won't think to try something like this again.
