I tested a Superior rocket (Absolute) in a very small space, was just testing one before the show with me as the only spectator but the rocket got stuck in the tube with me about 10 foot away! Was interesting lol. Could see it wasn't taking off so lay flat on the floor and was ok thankfully lol. After that i always use rockets at the correct safety distance.

Rocket tube once fell after being lit, the rocket hit a wall and came heading straight for me. Luckily ran inside just in time but door was covered in burn marks

Got two to share:

1 - When I was little my dad didn't have a launch tube with the rocket so he used a milk bottle so the rocket instead of going up when around and around the garden until it blown a hole in the fence.

2 - Happened last year where I had a mine which usually they go have a bit of a fountain and go into the air the exploded but this mine once lit just exploded in the bucket and then there was burning firework everywhere standing a good 50ft wide and bits of a large flower pot everywhere two with a lot of dirt. I never found all the pieces so I think most of it is in the neighbours garden lmao

The cat somehow got out of the house, and went and hid in a bush at the back of the garden. Then a roman candle fell over and shot the cat, he ran faster than I've ever seen before.
