When you set an incidental pyro fire and, instead of putting it out right away, you see ways it can do more good than harm.

"I've been meaning to clear the brush out of that ditch for quite a while!!"

You smoke blackpowder when everyone else smokes pot... or you mix pot into fireworks...

 

Flower pot has nothing to do with flowers

 

Instead of pots for your plants, you use fireworks mortars because "just in case"...

Heh!  You "know you're a pyro" when you spend 10 hours a day EVERY day of the week just on pyro projects, or site planning for other companies, or designing formulae for other companies, or building tools for them, or doing vendor research for them. or, or, or... !

 

Yeah... I'm a pyro.  <grin>

When you sit around a bonfire and people throw a log on it, causing sparks to fly everywhere. And immediately, you're awake and scanning your surroundings.

I noticed this with myself the other day  :D


Blowing shit up is not a goal in itself. Seeing your device working the way you intended, is the greatest satisfaction of all.

Similarly, when you actually watch (and analyze) all those videos you take of fireworks.

You know you are a pyro when

...almost going mad when you hear fireworks display, but can't see anything

...your clothes smell better than any expensive perfume

...you imagine that you could buy 2 cars from money which you burned up

...you convert almost every money you make to kilograms of chinese clay and cardboard...

...you can't stop thinking about it

 

!! :D

OK  you folks need to lighten up :D Hey Noobs.. this is a classic thread. Grab a beverage and don’t spit anything on the keyboard. :D


I like smoke! On food or in the air equally well.

When you are 70 years old and during the cold winter days you still frequently go outside light a piece of Visco, get downwind and sniff. :blink: .

There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.
