With Fourth of July comes fireworks, with fireworks come idiots who don't know how to handle them and with that comes countless injuries.
It's an American tradition at this point and lucky for us, with all those injuries also comes hilarious stories of how those happened.
While we feel pretty bad this guy in Anderson Township, Ohio blew his hand to patriotic smithereens, this story does have an (if not funny) interesting twist.
When Nicolas Steinker, 33, blew his hand apart, the shrapnel of pieces of his hand struck his pal Juan Vargas and caused lacerations on his face and neck!
So, there are multiple lessons to be learned here: first, don't use fireworks or you may blow your hand off. Second, hand bits can cause mad lacerations.
