Firework Safety Tips

Jul 04, 2014

The Three Stooges aren’t a very careful trio. In celebration of the 4th of July holiday, Larry, Moe and Curly will give you some firework safety guidelines to prevent you from getting injured.  Tips will include: Use fireworks outdoors only and buy only legal fireworks.

USE FIREWORKS OUTDOORS ONLY

Lighting fireworks at home is not legal in many locations so make sure to check that you’re not violating any laws before you make a purchase.   Should it be allowed in your area, make sure to not set off any indoors as they are highly dangerous and are highly flammable.  For extra precaution, have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher.

STEER CLEAR OF OTHERS

Fireworks have been known to backfire and shoot off in the wrong direction.  Never throw or point fireworks at anyone, including pets, even as a joke.

BUY ONLY LEGAL FIREWORKS

When making your purchase for fireworks, make sure to check the label for the manufacturer’s name and directions as illegal fireworks are unlabeled.  Illegal fireworks have been banned since the 1960s and are highly dangerous.  It also goes without saying that you should never try to make your own fireworks., even if they come in a kit.

DON’T RELIGHT A DUD

If a firework does not seem to work, douse it with water or hose it down.  Don’t make an attempt to relight it.

HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION AT ALL TIMES

 Never let children operate fireworks on their own, even sparklers.  Sparklers can reach 1800* F and can still be dangerous.  Make sure an adult is always present.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

PerksBeingABookworm
Dear Dish-It:  I recently became friends with an upperclassman guy, Tom*, from my high school. We started hanging out about a month or so ago. To be honest, I thought the relationship was platonic: we've never flirted although we've bantered, I don't use flirty emojis with him and although I spend a lot of time with him, he has always said how much I remind him of my brother (who is the same age as me), and he's never stolen glances at me or given me the impression that he was into me that way. I rationalized that he saw me as a little sister the same way as I viewed him as an older brother, since he constantly made references to my brother and never attempted to flirt nor gave off any of the typical visual signals of attraction. I also don't see myself as someone who'd be attractive or crush-worthy from the perspective of a high school junior, since I'm a freshman in high school and definitely not modelesque, and we pretty much stuck to group outings. So when he asked me out 2 weeks ago, needless to say it came as a surprise. We decided to remain friends, but I'm having trouble establishing boundaries, especially since my sister informed me that one of his friends told her that Tom "wasn't going to give up on me" and that Tom was going to adhere to the "Three Strikes Rule": apparently, he can wait and ask me out 2 more times before giving up on pursuing me.  Dish-It, how do I remain friends with this guy without this becoming awkward? What do I do? Just this past weekend he wanted to s**pe call me and kept s.n.a.p.ch*tting me. I literally feigned accidentally sleeping in yesterday to avoid meeting up with him (he invited my siblings and I to go play tennis at our high school), and I haven't talked to him since Saturday (we do track together so it was kind of unavoidable). I need space, and I want to remain friends, but he's really making me feel uncomfortable.  Thanks, -Perks. P.S.: This is the second junior who has asked me out this year (and the second guy I've rejected). Maybe I'm just really naive and oblivious, but I genuinely don't see myself as attractive to guys...how do I stop accidentally leading them on? Because I'm not trying to, really-I'm not flirty or anything. I have no idea why they like me, I don't think I'm being overly nice and I'm not answering texts right away or anything. This guy didn't get my phone information from me, he got it from another person on our coed sports team and he originally texted me 2 months ago to tell me that he was worried about my brother so I didn't think he was making a move on me. *Names have been changed for privacy reasons. (Also: the chat filter keeps unnecessarily censoring my writing).

Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
