A Most unScientific Study – Fireworks

An informal survey of nine families revealed the following data about how families spend the Fourth of July holiday.

  • 8 of the 9 families plan to view fireworks between July 2 and July 4.
  • 3 of the 9 famlies plan to view fireworks between July 5 and July 10 (2 of the families will be viewing fireworks a second time)
  • 4 of the 9 famlies plan to launch “fireworks” of their own at some point in July.
  • 5 of the 9 famlies live in states where the law permits the launching of fireworks.
  • 0 of the 9 famlies had ever been inovled in a “fireworks-related accident”.
  • 3 of the 9 families said concerns about potential fireworks-related accidents weighed on their minds at this time of year.
  • 6 of the 9 famliies said firework displays were made less special by how prevalent they are on other occasions.

Not too many surprises in this week’s unScientific study. It’s good to know people are keeping fireworks safety in their minds, and that all the families plan to celebrate in some way.

What were your plans and experiences this holiday weekend? Please share them below.
