I say cooking bacon without a shirt on is more dangerous then the pyrotechnics the admins allow on their field.
On a side note, I have a damaged ear drum due to a mishap with firecrackers.
Believe me from experience, a blast next to your ear with a well made BB grenade won't be as harmful as if the actual firecracker was next to your ear. I'm not saying you won't hear bells ringing, but at least your ears won't be bleeding.
Always run, never think twice, live to fight another day and remember this simple saying: "You are not Superman, and you don't shit ammo out of your ass Monkey Boy!"
Only idiots throw rocks at authority. The smart ones are those that are behind authority, ready to stab it in the back.
