Independence Day is almost upon us, and for most Americans that means fireworks.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission is marking July 4
with a safety video
that mostly involves blowing up watermelons or showing what would happen if a mannequin tried to stare down an M-80 rocket.
Don't get us wrong, the fact that this video is so scary is undoubtedly a good thing; messing around with fireworks is a very stupid and dangerous thing to do.
