I hate firecrackers

I’ve always thought fireworks were a huge waste of time and money. I guess the Indian government agrees that it’s out of control, at least in India. It’s odd to me that a court can make a ruling that acts like a law in a parliamentary democracy, but either way I think this could be a staged event + land clear to make legal changes. Observe the magic numbers 11 and 1+8=9.

An Indian high court on Tuesday banned the use of high-decibel firecrackers between sunset and sunrise after a fireworks display at a Hindu temple in Kerala state ignited a series of explosions and killed 110 people.

Eighteen people were taken into custody, including employees of a fireworks manufacturer who was given the contract for running the show at the Puttingal Devi temple in the Kollam district.

At least 150 houses in the area of the temple were also said to have been badly damaged by the blast.
