    Fun.

    About an hour ago my office was shook by a long series of explosions,
    rockets launched from about 1/4 mile away in San Francisco. I went on
    the roof and it was wild. Rockets went straight up maybe 300 feet and exploded big-time. This went on for about 1/2 hour. Dozens of car
    alarms went off from the shock.

    Like everything else, you seen the prices lately? In the Northeast just
    a few shoebox fulls probably costs $3-500. They sound like dedicated celebrators

    But the MA law definitely tends to fall under "Can't Enforce" territory
    as there are dozens of shops just across the state line into NH "Live
    Free Or Die"* *some restrictions may apply, consult the fine print

    But MA laws on other stuff (like marijuana) are much more relaxed, so
    going across the border northbound there are signs for ye olde gun and
    firework shoppes, and southbound they say something like "Have you tried cannabis today?"

    Yep, the state line fireworks stores bilk 'em good, too, the prices are
    nuts now:

    <https://www.boston25news.com/news/local/hillsborough-county/fireworks-harder-find-more-expensive-nh-still-illegal-ma/ESPIU4LYFNGNNPYFZGEP2EXKGQ/>

    The punishment for possession in MA is pretty mild though, like a $100
    flat fine & seizure of items per offense (note: all flat-fine
    punishment statues mean it's meant to apply to the poor only, God bless America, land of the free*) *Freedom may entail extra charges, check
    your local listings for details

    IDK if it's the same now but in Maryland I believe it was, there was a
    $200 fine for transporting cigarettes in from Virginia without paying MD
    taxes on it.

    $200..per carton! Sucked for my friend's father who one day somehow got
    nabbed carrying 40 cartons. That's how you know the state is really
    ripshit at you for "stealing" from them.

    Boston takes First Night celebrations very seriously, though usually the

    I haven't made it to 12 PM at the local operation for a long time. The
    last one I can really remember was in 1999. A few people were in the
    office and I was on call but when the band played Auld Lang Syne and the
    lights didn't go out I concluded I could go home and go to bed.

    I suppose it's time for the fireworks to commence. A few years ago some
    amateur chemist upstaged the 4th on the 2nd of July. Rumor had it he was attempting to make hash oil or some other derivative that required
    butane as a solvent. When I heard the explosion I knew it wasn't an M-80.

    The ice sculptures don't melt... One freaky First Night in Missoula it
    was in the '40s and raining. That sucked even more than the one with a
    minor blizzard going on.

    I'd thought about going the the one in Phoenix but the security sounded
    like a real PITA. This was the year of 9/11; maybe it's toned down now.

    The crowd is a big part of the experience. The park is a sizeable piece of real estate -- imagine the Commons stripped of trees and flattened. Then, enlarged by a factor of 5 or 6.

    Place the Hatch shell there. With an unobstructed view of the lake -- just
    a large, empty BLACK space over which the fireworks are displayed.

    Instead of being seated at the *real* Hatch shell and looking across the Charles at the institute on the far (close!) shore, you see nothing save
    the barges from which the fireworks are launched.

    And, the fact that they are a few "sound seconds" away makes the large flashes all the more exciting -- the flash tells you to brace for the delayed sound. "Oh, this is gonna be a BIG one!"

    I also went to Boston's First Night in the early '80s. The version here ain't quite the same either.

    2022 with a grammatical error:

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164790428800

    Then, at 05:55:56 UTC, 16 minutes and 36 seconds later, Troll Doe
    responds to its own post with a correction, but stupidly forgets that it
    sets a Followup-To: header to the "alt.test.group", resulting in its
    correction article posting only to "alt.test.group":

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164790440700

    Troll Doe, mister "always.look@message.header", is so stupid it does not
    even remember it sets a Followup-To: header in its own vacuous insults.

    Special thanks to corvid <bl@ckb.ird> for pointing out the stupidity of
    Troll Doe:

    http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=165594737000

    The Troll Doe stated the following in message-id
    <sdhn7c$pkp$4@dont-email.me>:

    The troll doesn't even know how to format a USENET post...

    And yet, the clueless Troll Doe has continued to post incorrectly
    formatted USENET articles that are devoid of content (latest example on
    Tue, 05 Jul 2022 03:52:52 GMT in message-id <oAOwK.270218$Aqw9.265146@usenetxs.com>).

    NOBODY likes the John Doe troll's contentless spam.

    This posting is a public service announcement for any google groups
    readers who happen by to point out that John Dope does not even follow
    the rules it uses to troll other posters.

    This is a strange firework, I thought it was a signal flare at first but
    flares don't usually burst AFAIK. Looks like it's designed to look like
    some kind of two-stage missile:

    There are a variety of state and local regulations regarding
    fireworks, here.

    E.g., I can buy them in the city -- but not USE them, here!
    Anything that "leaves the ground" is banned in the state. Of
    course, that doesn't actually prevent their use!

    One of the country clubs nearby has "traditional" (ground and
    aerial) firework displays *every* saturday night. We just pull
    the curtains back on the living room window and watch from the
    comfort of the air-conditioned interior. So, there's not much
    "special" about them.

    By contrast, the lakefront in Chicago had a great off-shore
    display accompanied by a well-attended concert, in the park.
    Similar to the Pops at the Hatch shell.

    The best display I've ever seen was in Boston. Handel's 'Music for
    the Royal Fireworks' and 'Water Music' were simulcast on one of
    the FM stations. That's a hard act to follow.

    I also went to Boston's First Night in the early '80s. The version
    here ain't quite the same either.


    Cincinnati Toyota Pepsi sponsored on ten barges out in the Ohio
    River, all triggered to music perfectly and it was a dual display
    five barges each had identical displays separated by nearly half a
    mile of river front and over 250 people lining the river banks on
    both sides.

    That was twenty years ago. I don't know if they still do it or who
    does it or sponsors it. It is a labor day thing.

    I saw the Statue of Liberty Refurb unveiling fireworks display from
    the Hudson River shoreline way back when... July 4 1986.

    I was working in Infra-Red thermometry at the time. Long before
    imaging devices were commonplace. Ours had a liquid nitrgen bath to
    even work and was a mere 4 frames per second on a 640 x 480 screen.
    1986.

    Compared to other regulars, Bozo contributes practically nothing
    except insults to this group.

    Yet, since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) Troll Doe's post ratio
    to USENET (**) has been 67.5% of its posts contributing "nothing except insults" to USENET.

    ** Since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) Troll Doe has posted at
    least 2592 articles to USENET. Of which 176 have been pure insults and
    1574 have been Troll Doe "troll format" postings.

    The Troll Doe stated the following in message-id
    <sdhn7c$pkp$4@dont-email.me>:

    The troll doesn't even know how to format a USENET post...

    And the Troll Doe stated the following in message-id <sg3kr7$qt5$1@dont-email.me>:

    The reason Bozo cannot figure out how to get Google to keep from
    breaking its lines in inappropriate places is because Bozo is
    CLUELESS...

    And yet, the clueless Troll Doe has continued to post incorrectly
    formatted USENET articles that are devoid of content (latest example on
