Fireworks Boxing

Hey, it’s almost July 4th! Why not get ready with a round of fireworks boxing? Yes, apparently  in 1937, two men in London donned asbestos suits attached to firework bodies as part of a pyrotechnic display. Although this image was prominently displayed in an issue of Popular Science, it seems that fireworks boxing never caught on, which is a real shame if you think about it.

Thanks to io9 for this discovery.
