Meanwhile in Sweden, they're shooting fireworks under the ice...

Can any New Advent readers tell us how the fuse stays lit under there?


  1. Firework's fuses are made to continue burning under water. I have heard, possibly apocryphal, stories about cherry bombs being flushed down toilets and exploding pipes. There was a scene like that in either Problem Child or Problem Child II.

  2. If you flush a cherry bomb it makes a big mess, sometimes breaks the toilet, maybe more. Saw it in junior high school before kids were searched going into school.
    I'd be careful on ice, though.
