Rocket Bomb

I came across this story today about an event that happened last Sunday, in Michigan. I just wish that I could have seen this act of human stupidity in person. I would have laughed.

Looking for a power boost to his sled riding experience, a 62 year old sledder got it when the homemade rocket strapped to his back exploded, burning him over nearly 20 percent of his body. Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said the man, whose identity hasn't been released, was hospitalized in stable condition Monday.

Quick! Somebody break out the marshmallows and I'll go grab a couple sticks! The fire is still burning pretty good!

The crazy ol' man was hosting a Sunday night sledding party when he filled an automobile muffler with gasoline and gunpowder, strapped it to his back and had it lit, seeking what McCabe called "a rocket-launch effect."

Instead, I believe, he got the "Holy-shit-my-goddamn-back-is-half-gone-and-I'm-on-fire-effect."

The device blew up as the man headed downhill, causing second-degree burns to his face and right side of his body and possible eye damage.

This story kinda reminds me of when Chevy Chase oiled up the bottom of his metal sled in the movie, "Christmas Vacation." One of my faves. Zooom! Pow! Only this guy was more of an imbecile because he basically strapped a freaking bomb to his back. HA HA HA.

No charges have been filed against the man, whom McCabe said is known for doing "outrageous things" at his sledding parties.No shit. I bet he'd be fun for entertaining at kid's parties... or adult parties, for that matter -as long as he's far, far away from the house, car and the rest of the property. If he damages or sets himself on fire, that's cool, though. Maybe next time he could wrestle a polar bear, while naked.

Well... in a world full of idiots, innovation in stupidity is bound to happen. This fella up'd the bar for the rest of them.

I feel no sympathy for people who do such things.

Stupidity gone too far. All I could do was laugh on reading your post even though, I fully understood how serious the situation was. I am sorry! ha ha he he hee... cough

Anyways, I guess he would be a great entertainment at a party. "Old Man and the Fire show"

Great post. Have a nice day!!!

What are people thinking?!! Sometimes I wonder.

Of course I've done my share of dumb things, but I've tried to stay away from lighting myself on fire.

I would have laughed too. This definitely falls into Letterman's segment, "Stupid Human Tricks".

DarkSlander- Yeah, he did up the bar, huh? But stupid people who do obviously stupid things are entertaining. I feel it is my duty as a "concerned" human being to, well, laugh at them and kick them when they're down.

Mr. Stupid- Glad ya had a good laugh at the story. Yeah (snicker) you sound like you're sorry. You have a nice day, too, friend.

The Guy's Perspective- But have you ever tried to light one of your farts? My cousin demonstrated this oh-so-amazing feat for the delight of us all. We were drunk around a big pit fire when he did this... so actually... it was entertaining. Anyway, he farted and the methane gas within the fart combusted, causing his pants to catch on fire.

My first reaction was to kick him into the fire pit. So I did. Tee hee.
