    A North Carolina man is dead after police say he accidentally drank from a jar of gasoline and then smoked a cigarette. Havelock police received a 911 call about 9:55 p.m. Monday after 43-year-old Gary Allen Banning set himself on fire. Banning was transported to UNC Burn Center in Chapel Hill, where he died early Tuesday morning.

    And if you do drink gasoline, for whatever purpose, accidental or not. How do you decide that smoking a cigarette (I'm assuming relatively soon after drinking the gas) is a good idea?

    Oh c'mon who hasn't drunk gas before, after downing a fifth of bourbon or two?

    I guess one can drink from a jar that had held gasoline at one point without realizing that one had actually drunk gasoline. I think one could still be classified as an idiot for doing such a thing, but I guess I could see how it would happen. <shrug>

    The boots i exchanged at Gander Mountain arrived at my house the night before we got the biggest snowstorm of the year (which still wasn't much my MN standards). And i dominated a bunch of preshcool thru 4th graders in a snowball fight.

    Jeez do I have to do ALL the work for you guys, like reading the F-ing article? Guy was at a buddy's house and saw a glass of what he thought was moonshine (I'm assuming the part about the moonshine) in the sink. He drank it, spit it out immediately and got the gas on his clothes in the process. A while later he went outside to smoke because, well, that's what rednecks do. The cig ignited his clothes.

    Because my first post was what we call in the message board business a "tease". It's meant to entice the poster to OPEN THE FUUUCKING LINK

    Honestly, it's been about 8 months since I really have pursued that. I think back to when I was in elementary school and I wanted to be a writer, and I think that's what suits me best. Ideally I'd like to be able to do sports writing and screenwriting. So far I'm accomplishing one of those goals, and the results of this season have given me a lot of confidence that I'm headed in the right direction.

    Well, if you had better enticing skills........maybe the lesson here is your enticing skills are sorely lacking and need work.
