I'll be waiting

Fantastic to launch right next to a ripe to harvest Wheat or Barley field. The light effect will be seen for miles, possibly even by Chinese. You could even say it would light up the heavens, like a beacon tothe gods.

That would be irresponsible wouldn't it?

PC brigade here,ban them!

If they're not the biodegradable type, the cows eat them and the wire doesn't do them any good, then the farmers who keep getting subsidies galore moan.

I'm not sure if my sarcasm went straight over your head or your sarcasm is lacking.

Or perhaps you don't understand sarcasm?

Are these the ones that could spill molten wax on your face like this one did....

As well as the fire hazard and animal endangerment. I don't trust them to say the least.

Molten wax? I've heard of molten lava, but never molten wax. Do you mean melted wax?

English not your strong point poppoppop?

molten [ˈməʊltən]
adj
1. liquefied; melted
2. made by having been melted

Now I'm no fan of littering the countryside, and I'm pretty bored of the idiots mistaking these for flying saucers, but in that story how did a molten burner full of wax fall from 40ft, without spilling or spattering, to land in a single mass on a child's face? I'm not sure that account rings true. Oh right it isn't apparently bbc.co.uk/new…337 The lantern was only "just below the roof" Maybe there was quite a bit of "confusion" at that party?

As an animal lover I'm firmly on the these-should-be-banned side of the fence. I don't give a monkey's about the farmers, I'm more concerned about an animal dieing a hideous, painful death because someone wanted five minutes of a flying flame. (_;)

And before anyone says, "But I bet you eat meat", I don't, I'm Vegan. Meat is murder and all that.

So that's just cruelty to Botany instead: naturalnews.com/028…tml

Most of our meat is cruely slaughtered anyway and this won't change until it becomes a requirement to warn consumers if Halal methods were used.

At least if these land in the right place, you might end up with some well done steaks....
