Does it shock you that Peter is a pyro? Every experience Peter has had with bottle rockets has ended badly. I could pick any number of stories to back this statement up, but it's getting late so I'll just say this. If you have a bottle rocket, but no bottle. Just forget about lighting it. If you do decide to light it. A pool noodle is not a good substitute for a bottle. Because the force of the firework will make the noodle go haywire and that flaming mother will land in the neighbors yard.
