A mixture of things, people getting injured, law suits, fires etc.



The councils can put on fireworks and things, you just can't buy them for personal use anymore!

To he honest I think that is good and I wish they would do it here. People are far too irresponsible with them. My High School was 6 storey high and as everyone was heading to class 2 boys let off fireworks up the stairs :? Luckily I was on another stair case at the time in a different part of the School.

They definitely have the potential for a lot of damage!

I think because its hot all year round and there's a high risk of bushfire from sparks.

Do you get panadol and neurofen in America?
What Tylenol? Does it have paracetamol in it?

According to Wiki, both are what we call Tylenol and Advil here.



AKA Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen

They've been banned for 30 years I think. A family friend of ours passed away after getting one in his neck. You have to remember too, Australia's drinking culture is full on, alcohol and fireworks are a bad mix

I think it was because of accidents, like I mentioned.
I remember the final firework night where everyone used them up!
I think you can buy them in canberra, you can buy firecrackers illegally in Chinese grocers

I think nurofen is ibuprofen?
Panadol is paracetamol. Most Aussies use panadol first.
Then there's panadeine, paracetamol and codeine.

Wow that's terrible :/



Yes the UK has a terrible drinking culture, think we are the worst in Europe. They send out "drunk ambulances" at the weekend into city centres in some parts of England to deal with the drunks so the real ambulances aren't used up with this nonsense, it's disgusting.

Do they have toilet attendants in England still? Like the little old lady that sits there and you put money in her plate?

Oh no not at all! These ambulances are sent into city centres for the adults coming out of clubs. It doesn't matter what "status" either, it can be the jobless idiot or the high end proffessional. There is a binge drinking culture across the board here, everyone thinks it's acceptable to use just about anything as an excuse to get so drunk they have absolutely no memory of the night before. I love to go out for the evening while in other parts of Europe where peopoe actually socialise sober, here you can't go anywhere but everyone is falling about drunk. Where do you think the youths here get it from :?
