What's more American than senseless destruction caused by gunpowder?

Independence Day is often celebrated with fireworks shows because it's just plain fun to watch things blow up. That's partly why we had a revolution to begin with. Blowing stuff up is just part of our American heritage.

In the spirit of American pride, we present this collection of awesome destruction caught on camera and shared on YouTube.

Remember, if you're buying fireworks for your own backyard celebration, pick up some M-1000's to blow up a gourd or melon or just some junk out of your garage.
