The 4th of July is a day Americans do what we do best: blow stuff up. This generally takes the form of the spectacular light show you’re probably seeing murky versions of across your Instagram timeline today, but every now and then, something amazing happens. Like a few years ago, when San Diego accidentally lit off their entire fireworks display at once. Or just this year, when young Wade Bright filmed his pals goofing around with the bottle flip challenge, and captured a once-in-a-lifetime miracle.

America heads into its 243rd year with plenty of issues to work on, no doubt, but still undefeated in terms of firework gags.
