More than 20–You’re a Hollywood special effects technician with a business card that says “I blow shit up for a living.” You burned down your high school.

15-20–For reasons only you can explain you double majored in film studies and chemistry and still have most of your fingers. You burned down your parents’ garage.

10-14–You like movies and always find the best parking spot for your local Fourth Of July celebration. You’re in charge of the fire when camping.

5-9–You watch your local Fourth Of July celebration on the morning news on the fifth of July. You burn yourself on the stove every time you cook.

1-4–Soup commercials make you cry and you once burned yourself with a glow stick.

All fireworks are currently commercially available and trademarked by their respective manufacturers.

    I got most of them, but A Gnome Named Gnorm stumped me! I couldn’t tell if it was fireworks, a buddy film, or a horror movie about a garden gnome that comes to life and terrifies its owners!

      I’m pretty sure A Gnome Named Gnorm is terrible, but I want to see it anyway. And if it were a brand of fireworks I’d want to buy a dozen and blow them up. Actually if I ever get around to watching A Gnome Named Gnorm I’ll probably want to blow it up too.

    I should just keep a mirror by my computer. Yes, I know there are other ways, but my way is faster (and easier for me).

      Keeping a mirror handy actually sounds like a pretty good solution, especially if you’re using a laptop or tablet.

    I was amazed at how many I got correctly. I didn’t keep count. I was just impressed that I got so many. This was amazing and fun! I hope you do this again with other topics! Happy 4th of July, my friend! Mona

    People have been setting off all ten of those nearby for weeks, Chris, and we’re all saying, “Donkey balls!” Thanks for another illuminating post.

      I think “Donkey balls!” is everyone’s new favorite expression.
