English: Sparklers with a slow shutter speed of 4 seconds. Taken new years eve 2008 in a public park in Dover Heights, New South Wales. I got my young cousin to stand as still as possible whilst rotating both sparklers in a circular motion (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is one of those “don’t try at home” items. What happens when you cram 10,000 sparklers into a bucket and then light them?

Honestly, I love fireworks of all types.  As long as I know they are going to go “bang”, they don’t trip off my PTSD.  One could debate whether one would need to be a pyro to attempt such a stunt.  However, I think most of us would want to, at a safe distance, witness 10,000 Sparklers all burning at once.  I confess that I sure want to see it. However, being aware of the fire risk, I doubt I would foster the courage to actually attempt the stunt on my own.  Lest not forget the fact that a huge plume of sparks and fire would certainly lead to fire, police and arrest in my urban neighborhood.

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.12.27

I hope you all had a great holiday. I will be rather sparse between now and the first of the year. Enjoy the last link list of 2015!

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – This week’s was a no-brainer. A shoplifer is thwarted by exploding cookie dough.
  • Useful – I found this post abouthow to clean a computer keyboard. I think most of us could benefit from this.
  • Music – Want to lay down some beats? Check out the The HTML-909 Rhythm Composer! (Kudos to Never Enough Notes for sharing it on Facebook.)
  • Photo – You will likely need to zoom in a bit to see it but check out this red sprite captured by NASA from the ISS.
  • Yours (Something from the web’s social networks) – This week I went with a tweet from @ScienceChannel, they call it the doorway to Hell which has currently been open for 40 years!
  • Science – Light is the fastest thing in the universe. It travels about 100 times faster than electricity and can circle the globe in 0.1 seconds. I would be wonderful if electronics could use light. Scientist have developed a CMOS chip that can process both light and electricity.
