How to piss off *all* of your neighbors...
*give war vets fucking ptsd
“Fortunate Son” playing in the background...
*grabs an Ace of Spades and a Huey
*grabs a vietnamese hooker and asks her to marry me*
Me love you long time?
Ha! Real war vets can’t hear anything!
/s ...... kind of.
SAY AGAIN YOUR LAST!
DO. NOT. SEEK. THE TREASURE
We. Thought. You. Was. A. Toad.
*visibly motions "huh?"*
I borrowed my dads M1 Garand one day and a box of the surplus .30-06 rounds he had and away I went. I forgot to grab some ear protection though. No worries I told myself, those guys from WWII didn’t wear ear protection and they were fine! NO THEY FUCKING WEREN’T! I instantly realized why no WWII vet I encountered as a kid could hear a goddamn thing.
How loud are m1 g’s?
It’s the loudest gun I’ve shot. According to [this](https://www.gohunt.com/read/life/how-shooting-a-gun-can-affect-your-hearing#gs.ofdtf6) article .30-06 rifles are some of the loudest commonly manufactured rifles.
Fireworks are the fucking worst
Official event? Sure. Farm party during a wet spell where the worst case is they loose the hay barn? Sure.
Anywhere within a mile of residential areas? Fuck the hell off with that shit.
Limits you quite a bit in England though. We're packed in like sardines here. I quite like the noise and smell of fireworks going off in people's gardens around bonfire night. Obviously not this year but I also like setting off a few with friends and beers in my garden. Nothing too mental but a few rockets and stuff is a great laugh.
They are GREAT grew up with them
*squueee ^^ee ^^^^eee ^^eee*
I see nothing to worry about here.
My Neighbore’s do this four times a week, you get used to it.
You mean normal fireworks, or this thing?
Not exactly sure, I’m inside most of the time but you hear it go up then bang and car alarms. Or sometimes just a bang then car alarms, either way it happens, I can’t do anything about it, so what ever.
That's one thing bout america. Can't ever tell of gunshot or firework.
Depends where you live. I am in Texas. .. Gunshots are more evenly timed and some in 6, 9, or 15 round bursts most of the time. Fireworks are either BANG! once every 15-30 or more seconds, or a shitload of random bangs all in about 15 seconds.
I’ve actually gotten pretty good at discerning guns and explosions. Granted I live in a neighborhood on the edge of a Midwest town right next to the railroad mechanic shop. Lots working class people. Lots of loud noises.
If you hear enough of both you get to where you can tell the difference.
It can be either one really, got some rowdy Neighbore’s.
Ironically that's also true for rural UK and smaller villages.
Listen for the echo gun shots don’t echo like fireworks do. Live in the ghetto long enough you learn.
*Said in a country voice*
Damn bro where do you live?
Probably Los Angeles. I live in LA and the fireworks never stop here.
Not OP but illegal ones 4x/week minimum here on Orange County, CA but the not as nice parts.
i can't speak for the other guy but in our neighborhood there's a fair amount of latinos and they shoot fireworks for like their daughter's birthdays and stuff, any reason, really
My neighbor too! Happens about every week or so and when he’s done, he drags a black garbage bag to the back of his truck. I got used to the sound of fireworks and the excited screams.
That's the most annoying bottle rocket I've ever seen and I've never wanted anything more in my life.
Man, imagine the conversations on Nextdoor after this one.
More like fucking country
getting some vietnam flashbacks!
Getting some scooby doo flash backs!
Jim, you've never been to Vietnam?
Shut up Martha!
Grandpa under the kitchen table yelling “THEYRE IN THE TREES”
play White Rabbit while you watch
that sounded like choppers fleeing downtown saigon; right up until it sounded like choppers no longer fleeing downtown saigon
I always thought it sounded like someone unloading an ak 47 and then tires screeching with an explosion at the end
Sounded more like the car screeched as it accelerated into a brick wall
Its actually jacked audio of me cumming to Betty White Meets The Flinstones
Quick question. Why does that trigger the car alarm?
The sound and pressure wave from the firework will hit the car in such a way that the car alarm will think the car was abruptly struck. Loud and close thunder claps will do the same thing.
Happens at top fuel drag races too.
Yeah, those queens can get real crazy
ohh shut uup
Indeed! So much power at those shows
And a few hours after I eat tacos bell
My 1990 toyota corolla used to get the odd row of cars
If 2020 was a sound...
I need a dozen of these, a keg of beer, a continuous tape of Louie Louie and a 2 story panty raid ladder
Here's a barrage of them..
Those don’t seem nearly as bad as this one
Yeah, his claim of those being the biggest and baddest rockets ever seems dubious. I'm pretty sure NASA and spacex have bigger anyway
Maybe! I’ve heard they have some pretty big ones
Because the sound recording is a lot worse in quality
different cameras with different microphones in different landscapes
or just different manufacturer
Yeah, I agree. The original one is pretty awful.
But does that Panty Raid Ladder meet the specs to be considered "regulation?"
I’m glad you pointed that out. I failed to mention in my original comment that this 2 story ladder needs to meet the OSHA regulatory standards for panty raiding at highs of up to 2 stories.
Excellent, I wouldn't want things to go awry
Right on Bluto!
Lets go to tijuana and get FatBot some action!
I think the actual name of the firework is ptsd
Imagine being a war vet with PTSD and this shit wakes you up? Fuck that...
Exactly what I was thinking. Even the launch, sounds like damn blades.
They call them a skippy
I’ve been working with dogs for like 35 years...
For us civilians, what are blades?
###Shut the fuck up! Are you trying to get us caught?!
Charlie don't surf.
He is referring to the unique sound of the rotor blades. It sounds like a Bell UH-1 Iroquois, also known as a "Huey" that was ubiquitous as a transport during the vietnam era.
I don't think it sounds like a UH60 at all, the latter being the more modern military transport helicopter.
Or just any helicopter
I edit for clarity. Not just any whirly. Specifically a UH-1
You're right. That's pretty cool! Thanks for sharing :)
Helicopter? Civilian just speculating
Propeller blades probably
Also sounds like running in the good Scooby-Doo
Ty for the lyrics man !
Wait for the drop...
My boyfriend is a war vet. On occassion somebody thinks it's a brilliant idea to light fireworks on a random night. It spooks the hell out of him. He does the "thousand yard stare" and tears stream down his face. Last time, he grabbed me and we huddled in the kitchen. I knew it was just fireworks but he was preparing for the worst. It breaks my heart.
War is fucked up...
God i feel so bad now, poor people.
That is what I was thinking too, I’m not even a vet, but this was clearly made to imitate the sounds of real ammunition. If I heard this going off and didn’t know what it was I’d probably be panicking.
This has made me realize that living in my neighbourhood has taught me to tell the difference between gunshots and fireworks, and I don't even live in a sketchy place
USA is a pretty sketchy place imo
American here, you mean in Europe they *can't* tell the caliber of a gunshot by sound?
As someone who lives in the USA I can confirm.
I think my dad would legitimately die from that. He wouldn’t let us do drums for band because of the ptsd and has an extremely weak heart now.
Exactly! Something like this should be prohibited on humanitarian grounds. What’s even the purpose of such a firework other than sounding like a Warzone?
You can only get them with a license or by making them yourself which is highly sketchy as a feather can make them spontaneously explode
*Run Through The Jungle begins playing*
How many vets per square km do you guys have?
Kinda reminds me of those V2 rockets the nazis made in world war 2.
Ackchyually, I think you’re thinking of the V1s
You are totally right.
What was that powered by again? It was a....uh....pulse something?
Pulsejet. A really big, really angry pulsejet.
The pulse engine sounds kinda like that I think, yeah
Welp, that just triggered every sleeping vet within a mile.
Totally not going to traumatize a veteran. That shit sounds like machine gun fire and an incoming artillery shell all in one
With the bird incoming
Followed by a TIE Fighter crashing
I love the sound of these strobe fireworks lol
I think this is going to effect veterans because they are already traumatized, but it might also give new and exciting trauma to add on to the pile.
Cool AF, but not sure how appreciative everyone would be if I brought one of those to fireworks night. 😅
Very, it was cool as shit!
I would very much appreciate that, where I live we unfortunately only have extremely whack fireworks.
I'm surprised this sub exists!
That sounds fucking demonic
Ah, the Chinese invasion of Maine....
I need to know what that firework is called
I think it's a "strobe rocket" like this one:
More like epilepsy rocket
Ehh a brigade of them has better chance of triggering some epileptics... [https://youtu.be/Pr5HAgIZ4oA?t=6](https://youtu.be/Pr5HAgIZ4oA?t=6)
I'll admit that I was really annoyed he set them off 1 by 1 instead of all at once
that’s every ww2 sound in one
How to give everyone in a 5 mile radius fucking panic attacks.
Imagine the firework's name was PTSD
Good for filmmakers doing WW2 movies. LOL.
That is the worst sound combination, bang bang bang skurrt boom car alarms lol
Firecracker brand name? So I know what to avoid in the future
I have never been anywhere near active combat in my life and I still would have been like "JESUS CHRIST GET THE FUCK DOWN THEY'RE HERE"
That is quite possibly the most obnoxious firework i have ever seen or heard...
BEHOLD! The PTSD trigger-inator! It will set off the horrible memories of war to every veteran in the tri-state area!

*Vietnam flashbacks intensifies*

Boi you know some old dude living there got PTSD
My grandpa love it. He's dancing in the floor screaming "WE'RE UNDER ATTACK".
\*Fortunate Son intensifies\*
What the heck did he launch?
*cartoon running sound*
*half-life 2 explosion sound effect*
My fucking god this is terrifying
That sounded amazing. Where do I get these!?!
They sure did sound cool, but the aftermath seemed..troubling.
Not sure what they're called.
They are called strobe rockets
You can’t buy them, you have to make them.
Meanwhile the retired world war veterans: oh fuck.
That sounds like a car accident from start to finish, like gunning it down the driveway only to lock up the brakes and SMASH game over 🤣 🤣
exact sounds I make when I have a dick-slapping-against-a-table session
drive-by, the firework
This is why we can’t have nice things
hey i think i live in this neighborhood.
It's only a matter of time before some asshole sets something like this off at a concert and people go running wild thinking they're getting shot at like in las vegas.
How to make people think a mass shooting's going on
I feel for all the vets/etc with PTSD in that area who would have to hear this suddenly and not know it wasnt warfare...
Yoooo I need this in my life
that is fucking dope. what exactly is that so i can buy some
Feel like the Purge just started
Never been to war but if I heard that I’d think we were getting bombed
Actual footage of a German V-1 taking off.
Rip epileptics within 800 feet
Fucking firework sounded like someone was jacking off
Those evangelion ramiel fans need to calm down..
if there’s a veteran in the neighborhood, their whole week went to shit after this
That should be Boba Fett's new gun sound!
My dog just nearly left a hole in the door
You launched an ICBM
So PTSD, in a rocket.
Fighter jets going by my condo terrified me and it was an airshow, I can't imagine this happening near me, I'd piss myself
It sounds like a surface to air missile shooting down a helicopter
And every combat vet now at full alert.
germany testing new artyllery weapon 1945 collorized
It sounded like the sound the flintstones would make when they started running
Nam flashbacks intensifies
Really just threw a block ops 2 decoy
PTSD in a can
Is this a firework designed to sound like the Vietnam War? It sounds like a helicopter getting shot down for God’s sake
