Happy 4th of July to those in the US, but to also those who may be celebrating it elsewhere.
I have wondered, for the longest time now, whether there were any ways to light fireworks independently without exposing yourself to any unnecessary risk of it exploding prematurely.
In case there weren't, I've come up with something that could work in theory, but whether it would work in practice I know not. Anyhow, I was thinking that there could be a device out there that is like those used for firing cannons. You would connect some wires to the fuse, stand back a short distance, press a button, which would send a spark of electricity to the fuse and ignite it.
If you have successfully lit fireworks by yourself, what was your experience like? What strategies did you use to keep yourself safe?
