Idiot Watch: Smoking Men Huffing Lighter Fluid And Heating Frozen Pipes With Kerosene Go Kaboom
MEN and flammable things presents a double-header of stupidity.
One of the two men huffing lighter gas in a car parked in Ajman in the United Arab Emirates should not have lit that cigarette.
Lt-Col Khalid Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Chief of the Nuaimiya Police Station says: “The car burst into flames after one of the two men lit a cigarette. The car caught fire, following which the two men managed to escape. They sustained minor burn injuries and were shifted to Khalifa Hospital for treatment and medical care. They are in a stable condition now.”
At least the drugs are better in hospital.
The second story features Leonard Szulczewski, who used a hairdryer and keroswne heater to loosen the frozen pipes under his home in Marion Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvania. He fells asleep. He was woken a popping sounds. And an explosion.
