The running of the bulls in Pamplona always makes the news as the craziest and most dangerous festival in the world. However, the Yenshui Firework Festival in Taiwan has to run it close.

The crowd simply protects themselves with hats and thick coats while being hit at point blank range for several minutes by a non-stop barrage of fireworks.
I am still a little deaf.
