Burmese Taunggyi Fire Balloon Festival – Stupidity!.
So whats the best way to launch fireworks? Well it certainly isn’t to do it from a hot air balloon. The reason, well for a start a Hot Air balloon rises due to the difference in temperature between its contents and the surrounding air. If you raise the surrounding air temperature by setting off a load of super heated fireworks. The balloon falls!!! and then this happens….
What gets me is the fact that people just stand around and watch rather than running for the hills.
