I just had to add the "Related Articles" part to this news story! It's just too funny. Zul32 (talk) 18:19, 8 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Careless smoking of cigarettes[edit]

What.. careless smoking of cigarettes? The dude cleaned his apartment with GASOLINE. I don't smoke and it really annoys me, but come on. Put blame where blame is due. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs)

Gasoline in and of it self isn't terribly flammable. It is the vapours that come off it while it evaporates that mix with the air and become extremely flammable. So if he hadn't thrown a lit cigarette on the freaking pile of wet, gas soaked clothes, the apartment would have just aired out over a few hours. Everything would have been fine once the volatiles had evaporated away (well, for a given value of fine:P). It's possible that this moron had done his "cleaning" routine many times before with no ill consequences. Gopher65talk 03:56, 10 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FIVE GALLONS!?[edit] 20:11, 15 April 2009 (UTC) Fire.... fire.... fire....Reply[reply]

What? No one's coming? I'll just walk to the police station...

Either he was deliberately trying to burn down his apartment building, or he is intellectually "challenged." Either that, or he's just plain dumb.— 20:11, 15 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
