Addicted to Fun and Learning

Some firecrackers in India exceed 145db. I count myself lucky to have any hearing left.Two of my best friends when teenagers were playing with firecrackers. They were standing beside each other lighting and throwing cherry bombs. One guy lit his firecracker, raised it up to throw but it exploded just as he had raised it between their heads.
Ever since that accident, one guy has had bad tinnitus and some hearing loss in his right ear, the other guy the same issues for his left ear.
The number of fireworks/firecracker accidents must be staggering.
