    Fireworks are stupid.

    July 4th fireworks are stupid for sure. But my dog becomes a nervous wreck all night every night for the last’s month and change because people just need to hear loud booms every 5 minutes. Fireworks are pointless. They aren’t cool or fun and I hate them

    Love watching fire works shows. We usually go up to the family camp for the 4th, have a fire, sit around the lake, drink, relax.
    Probably a 10 years ago I would complain, but as I've gotten older, I've grown to enjoy them again.

    Our humble municipal fireworks event, now cancelled due to COVID, is always a magical evening with the kids, that they really get amped for. Great for social cohesion, with all the neighborhood out on the street in lawn chairs. Lots of BBQing and cold ones.

    Dogs/kids. I can't stand them. There's nothing worse than kids waking up all night long because childless assholes think it's funny to set off mortars at 4am.

    That's different. It's an event with a hard out. I'm pretty sure we're talking about civilians doing it on their own, which is obnoxious, because it lasts all night/week and is random. It's just noise.

    Oh. Understood. Yeah, I could see why that would be enraging.

    I'm fine with the events. They're timed. We know exactly when they'll begin and when they'll end. It's easy to schedule around it. I used to give my dog a relaxer pill an hour or so before they started and he'd be OK. Kids can probably be kept up, or allowed to sleep next to a relative for a few hours (to comfort them if they wake up).

    Miller Time Timothy has no business setting off fucking mortars in his backyard. I hope he blows his hands off. Both of them, so I never have to hear sticks of dynamite going off outside my kids window again.

    I guess I can’t say I hate July 4th because it’s when I met my fiance but I just never got the appeal. People filing fireworks? Like why?

    I met my wife on a golf trip, and now I'm not allowed to golf. Life is fun.

    The viral video trend of flipping pucks and twirling sticks is dumb.

    The vast majority of Police Officers in our country aren’t racist at all.

    I might disagree and it still works for the unpopular opinion thread

    for me, it's not that individually they are all racist. it's that they participate in a discriminatory criminal justice system. And that in police departments as a whole, there is a culture of not ratting on eachother. similar to gangs who don't snitch. so those cops that you would say are good, or aren't racist, don't speak up against the bad.

    Yup. First-degree versus third-degree.

    We are all racist to different degrees. People want to stick with their own
