    Lol, now now, let`s not be to harsh on the boy, I mean, I think we all remember a day when we would pore gasoline on ourselves and have our friend light it. Ahhh, good times. Nothing like imitating something you see on "Jackass" cept without the emergency staff and safety equipment. Lol, oh, and as for the ad placement, I say it was right where it belongs, I mean, who ISN`T going to read that story and think of BBQ? Yup, it all works out :-)

    I don`t think most of you got the joke. It wasn`t that the boy caught himself on fire...the joke is the Target ad in the middle with the picture of the guy bbq`ing. that is why it is an "Unfortunate Ad Placement".

    Where did this link originally come from? I get the barbeque joke, but I`m guessing the whole thing is fake. I`d like to think that published articles wouldn`t be written by "journalists" who can`t manage to form a proper sentence or grasp basic grammar principles. Then again, it IS the internet...

    kids have become insane, they do things like this but I have also heard about a game called blackout, where someone chokes the other person with a towel etc untill they ..blackout. I dont understand how these little kids see this kind of stuff fun? this reminds me kind of ,of the book farhnhiet 451 ( not the movie , the old 80`s book that alot of Canadians read in highschool)

    A few years ago when a friend and I were playing with fire and gas, another friend showed up unexpectadly and kicked the gas can into the fire.

    It blew up. Luckily I avoided all. My friends wern`t so lucky. My one friend who lived at the home ran inside on fire. His older brother squirted him with the kitchen sink hose and put hime out. Leaving third degree burns on his arm.

    Darren, the ass that kicked the can was left burning, completley on fire in the back yard and he died.

    We still didn`t learn. Mike and I built a hot air balloon from a pie tin, some string, and a garbage bag. The thing lifted off nicely, but not nicely enough to clear the garage roof.

    The pie tin filled with gas spilled over the roof, the garage and all it`s contents burned to the ground.
