ISLIP TERRACE, N.Y. Police say a man lighting fireworks has blown off his arm at a party on New York's Long Island.

Suffolk County police say 36-year-old Eric Smith was using a 3-foot long metal tube to shoot mortars from the street near his Islip (EYE'-slip) Terrace home around 5:45 p.m. Saturday.

Police believe he leaned over the device to ignite it and didn't get out of the way before an explosive shot out of the launcher. His left arm was severed at the shoulder

Yeah, stupid smarts every now and then.

Just not as much nor as often as it should.

Muzzle control FAIL. Gonna be a bitch showing up at your next interview for a pyro job with one arm.

Problems happen when people fail to remember that the only difference between fireworks and artillery is intent.
