Tens of thousands of dollars of fireworks meant for San Diego’s 18-minute-long “Big Bay Boom” fireworks show went up last night in a breathtaking display of light and sound — all in about 15 seconds, effectively ruining the whole thing.
Four different barges parked in San Diego Bay all sent up their explosives at the same time, causing a spectacular scene that left onlookers stunned and wondering what happened. The company responsible for the show, Garden State Fireworks, was blamed by San Diego event coordinators for a technical glitch that caused all the fireworks to explode at once, approximately 5 minutes before the display was supposed to start.
Oh baby, was it good for you too? Helluva show, Dago!

This is reported to be a computer malfunction. I don't care how fast your finger is, once the glitch occurred there's no one fast enough to expect "Esc" or "Back" to undo it. Heh.
