That makes me so very, very sad. There had to have been at least 10-15 people there, and none of them thought 'hey, all that flammable liquid is gonna stick to his skin, causing him to flame up more than Richard Simmons in his shortest of shorts'.
And as Mufasa said, a friggin' water hose? Honestly, that's the best you could do when playing with a fucking 20' length of fire that some jackass is going to slide through?
I may not have fully lost faith in humanity, but this--along with the obesity chart thread--has left me dumbfounded.
