Fireworks...

Roman candles are a type of fireworks, with long, thick paper tubes that emits balls of fire and a shower of sparks. Roman candles are banned in for example Finland due to them being considered prone to accidents.

A firecracker is a small explosive device primarily designed to produce a large amount of noise, especially in the form of a loud bang; any visual effect is incidental to this goal. Note that firecrackers are virtually all scientifically classed as "low explosives" which burn through
deflagration.

I wonder what happens if both of these play together...

Some stupid kids in my Highschool got a bit drunk or high or both and used roman candles to play tag... I think one guy got a bit burned.

Before you set it off, be sure to shout "Hey, watch this." There's no finer epitaph. :p

Like the U2 song (Promenade): .."And I, like a firework, explode
Roman candle lightning lights up the sky"...
