"Lenox Mall '08 or '09... can't remember, but fireworks went off too low and set bushes on fire on Lenox Road causing stampede. Insane"

- Deen Brown on Facebook.com/clatl

"My senior year of high school I ruptured an eardrum at a party. My friend shot a bottle rocket towards me and a guy I was trying to make out with. It exploded about a foot away from my head. We were really drunk."

- "Kat Debevoise" on clatl.com

"Rednecks having a bottle rocket duel at three in the morning in a field in Alabama as Lynyrd Skynyrd played the headline slot at a Pop festival/Motorcross rally. They were twenty feet apart, aiming at each other and missing because of the moonshine."

- "oydave" on clatl.com

"I was at my friend's lake house and we were all laying on a blanket outside the lake at night. They decided to light sparklers above my face and embers fell into my eyes.

- William at Victory Sandwich Bar in Inman Park
