Safety is an extremely important part of pyrotechnics. If you are not careful, you can easily get hurt or killed. Not only is it not fun to get blown up or blow you house or something, it screws over other pyros also. For example: Little Timmy blows off his fingers playing with an M-80. Timmy's mom now thinks that all fireworks are very dangerous now (even though m80s are not classified as fireworks, they are too powerful) and goes to Bubba the Mayor. She gets a big group of other paranoid people to lobby to get fireworks banned. No more fireworks! That sucks! Not only does it restrict legal fireworks, but also people pay more attention to other explosives. This kind of thing happens all the time. Don't give them any anti pyro "ammo", be safe!
