    Anyone this dumb will surely win the Darwin award one day.

    "the 17-year-old spilled gas on his pants while siphoning. He then used a lighter to try to determine how wet his pants were and set himself on fire"

    Kind of like South Park's late late abortion @ 8 years old. :rofl:

    So many things are ironic about this story.

    It was a firefighter's car ! :biggrin:

    The fire got him in the legs, but (presumably) missed his umm.. legumes. That would've been a blessing, would have taken his swimmers right out of the gene pool. :grumpy:

    An he would have gotten the award.

    I'm sure I'll win one for something that involves using a blasting cap to ignite a hybrid rocket, turning it into a pipe bomb in my face. Maybe sunday.
