Be careful with (Belgian) fireworks tonight

Do you guys actually have lots of fireworks for tonight?

They expect fog with sight less than 10 meters here tonight during the fireworks.

Last year, the sight was less than two meters, and it took me 90 minutes to complete 14 kilometers, never saw anything like that.

By the way, it sounds like some warzone here. Continuous explosions of (illegal) fireworks.

here is also a warzone outside... well, they've been firing crackers for few weeks now and today it only got worse... every year there are accidents but still illegal pyrotechnic sale is on the rise...
beside fireworks that are organized i don't see any sense in firing crackers and all other sorts of hand-throwing things at all...

btw... i wish you a happy new year in China just watched celebration on CCTV

I thought that this is only a Balkanian bad habit ... Here one day before NY cities start to look like Beirut in the 80-ies or Sarajevo in the 90-ies ...

i don't know for Zagreb, but here it is calm. each year we have a separated part in city centre where people may throw crackers and they are mostly firing it there, not outside of that. ok, there could be seen kids throwing crackers around, but really not much, they are keeping under those rules mostly. i remember 1990es, it was horrible, weapons were widely spread between people from the war and they've been firing with it. i had some crazy neighbour who's been throuwing grenades in the fields and sky was full of lightning bullets. but it's past now thank god.

Happy new year to all!!

two years back i've been to my gf in Novi Sad on a new year... i'm not sure but i think it's their national custom to fire from guns and other weapons...
i remember the sky was full of lightning bullets and it sounded like Baghdad on its worst days... on seconds you couldn't hear anyone but shots... really scary...

Yeah, lots of people loose fingers or sometimes their hands due to fireworks every year in NL. A while ago, some illegal "mortar fireworks" blowed some guy to pieces, they had to search the entire neighborhood for the remains of him.

you guys in Netherlands yhould know what milk-can is. and if you know what CaC2 is (we call it "karabit", in english it might be carabite d:, so, calcium-carbide), then you can make quite a noise like this. of course, light (but also loud) version is with colour-can, but extreme is to use oil barrel of 500 litres, then you make real detonation, i saw it too
