Those are some HUGE firecrackers.
Firecrackers are illegal where I live, but I heard plenty of them going off in my neighborhood last night (shows you how well these kinds of laws work
).
Great video.

Those fireworks are way bigger than what we we have here in the USA. The biggest firework we COULD buy was an M-80. It was 1.5" long and 9/16" in diameter. You can buy novelty M-80s now, but they have .05 grams of explosive vs the 3 grams in the old ones.

). THose ones Joerg is throwing look like small sticks of dynamite.

They look big an dangerous, but there is really only a little bit of black powder in them, right in the middle of the stick. The rest is filled with some red dust like material, which is non flammable.

Very good video. I really like that backpack slingshot. If I wasn't so inept at making things I'd try to make one.
