Does /diy/ know how to make sky lanterns?
Remember that thread about the anon who wanted to make a 100% biodegradable paper lantern and sell it for a profit? The one who though people would actually buy something 200x more expensive than cheap Chinese ones.
Pretty sure I made one one time... You use either dry cleaner clothes protector plastic or tissue paper glued together with a cotton ball dipped in running alcohol suspended with thin wire. Remember they need to be LIGHT. The physics is the same as a hot air balloon.
>plus fireworks have been cancelled in Belgium because of the refugees
If you only knew what they are doing over here
>All the more reason to make them
>actively going out of your way to harm living creatures for no reason
Have you considered offing yourself?
No I'm not shitposting. You're actually an arse.
>But these things should be forbidden, a friends house burned down because one of these things crashed onto their roof
These are in fact against the law in many states and municipalities in the us.
When my brother was getting married his wife wanted to light these off. I told her in no uncertain terms, no, they're unsafe. She told me I wasn't helping to plan the party any more and that I could leave.
The reception was at her families farm. The neighbors barn and stable were burned to the ground killing ten show horses a couple work horses and a dozen cows. Destroyed a couple pieces of harvesting equipment. All worth lots of money too.
It was a seven figure settlement that bankrupted their farm.
>how do I make something made of 2 cents worth of paper and string
There another one.
The worst I have seen was during some winter fetivities where they were letting these up in a city. The fucking things kept crashing into buildings etc but they just kept on launching. In the end the firemen had to stop them because it was becoming ridiculous.
I hate them with a passion
P.s. did the girl say anything to you afterwards?
No. We're the ones who saw the fire and my dad called the fire department.
Fire marshal found one of the lanterns and declared that as the cause. At the courts during the suut for damages my sister in law tried to say they didnt knownit was dangerous or against the law. I told the judge i specifically warned them they were dangerous and illegal. "YOURE A FUCKING LIAR!!!"
Told the judge to put a bible under my brother's hand and ask him if they knew.
>judge looking at my brother: do I have to get a bible"
She tried to villify me on facebook all i could say is "im not the one who burned those cows and horses alive"
This sounds fake
Also, why would they need a bible under his hand?
Lying in court is perjury, regardless if you have a bible.
What kind of cocksucker brother are you to throw your sister under a bus, lose them family farm, and then it all ends with a spat on facebook?
We get it, you set a tree on fire with one once and hate them
>Also, why would they need a bible under his hand?
>Lying in court is perjury, regardless if you have a bible.
Farm means country, which means religious.
Some people are more afraid of blasphemy than perjury.
