Although the Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared," they didn't exactly seem prepared for thousands of small rockets raining down on a large crowd after reaching their zenith. Luckily, they are only made of out plastic—but we hope no eyes were poked out. Nonetheless, everyone seemed please, including one anonymous scout who commented, "that was awesome." Yes, yes it was, young man. Now someone give this kid an fuckin' merit badge.

I don't understand these kinds of world records. WR should be there for feats of human strength/endurance, but when all you have to do is set up a bunch of rockets and push a button all that really takes is money and time.
