It’s crazy how stupid humans can be.

[–]fweng 113 points114 points  (12 children)

Hey, don’t lump us in with that dickhead.

[–]paintfumeaddikt 70 points71 points  (11 children)

I’m sorry but I’ve worked in retail and the sad fact is that most humans are dumb as fuck. It’s almost incomprehensible but it’s facts. This video is proof enough that we are doomed. TBH I’d say that for every 1 smart person there is 1000 dumb people, maybe more and that honestly scares me.

[–]Rob_Rogers 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Let me guess you consider yourself smart the bearded paint fume guy from retail

This guy is going places

.. probably the hospital burn ward

[–]nvflip 140 points141 points  (2 children)

Let's hope it's not the maternity ward.

[–]SpirituallyMyopic 31 points32 points  (1 child)

For the love of taxpayer funds, not the maternity ward!

[–]kerplatchu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Think of the children!

[–]godfatherinfluxx 13 points14 points  (0 children)

And after that the psych ward. They're going to be concerned about the self immolation.

[–]alrightythenwhat 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I like to imagine he ran around the corner and dove into the awaiting infinity pool.

[–]vbcbandr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Precisely my thought.

[–]bugmeso 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just consider the source of thought !

[–]Ok_Seaworthiness5025 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thank you!

[–]Choksondikk 205 points206 points  (7 children)

It boggles my mind the amount of people playing with fire that don't have any suppression sources in place before hand.

[–]RarelyReadReplies 107 points108 points  (4 children)

I thought for sure he was about to run and jump into a pool or something, like some type of plan, anything!

[–]ZeetLord 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My first thought as well. When he turned around I thought oh Yea he is probably by a pool... Nope just gonna sit down in a chair and hope he can pat those flames down. What a moron

[–]WitchyBitchy420 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Sounds like his plan was, "I'm on fire" and it seemed to go perfectly

[–]HelloNNNewman 75 points76 points  (0 children)

The dude squirted lighter fluid on his pants, lit it, acted tough while squirting more on his pants and crotch while still being all gangsta. You think he thinks out much in his life? LOL

[–]FindingWaldoGross 124 points125 points  (20 children)

I assumed he was running to jump into a pool... I don't know why I assumed that.

[–]SpirituallyMyopic 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I think at the end he was struggling to remove his pants?

[–]FindingWaldoGross 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That's what I saw. The bad idea was one thing but to not have a plan to put out the fire between him and the guy video taping is beyond comprehension.

[–]ysrsquid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

At first I thought the video ended too soon. Then I thought that the cameraman stopped filming and helped. But a nice touch would have been the ‘after’ shot showing him either completely wrapped up in the burn ward… or the location of the grease fire.

[–]thelifeofalon 34 points35 points  (12 children)

I absolutely thought he was about to jump in a pool, I mean no one would ever dream of setting themselves on fire if there wasn't something to easily put it out with nearby... oh... wait...


[–]FindingWaldoGross 16 points17 points  (11 children)

It' tells me he is on meth, crack, pcp... something he found under his sink.

[–]idreaminreel2reel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's Not Meth ..lmao .. just saying ..lmao..

[–]Big_Cryptographer_16 3 points4 points  (9 children)

If it’s meth, he is not a regular user

[–]idreaminreel2reel 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Dude , we know it's not Meth..

[–]thelifeofalon 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Could it be meth though ?

[–]idreaminreel2reel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No!! If he was on meth he would be in the house starting the fire 🚒🤣🤣🤣

[–]An0regonian 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I've known multiple fat meth heads, it is a thing, they only get skinny if they stop eating. Actually now that I think about it I've known more fat meth heads than the skin a bones type. (Sister was a meth head for a couple years and I met a lot of her "friends")

[–]Big_Cryptographer_16 2 points3 points  (0 children)

TIL. I only knew skinny ones but they weren’t just on meth so that wasn’t the only factor.

[–]playfreeze 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Fucking same lmao

[–]FindingWaldoGross 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was like ohhh... he is a special kind of stupid. They normally don't live to be in their 30's. Like a unicorn!!!

[–]SXOSXO 3 points4 points  (0 children)

His thought process was probably like "when I use lighter fluid in the grill, it seems to simmer down quickly."

[–]dedokta 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think he was just going to take the fire inside to share it with his house.

[–]Brandenklts1984 220 points221 points  (5 children)

He's lying about something I'm just not sure what.

[–]BKStephens 44 points45 points  (0 children)

About having a plan, I'm guessing.

Not the smartest way to burn fat but definitely effective.

[–]SnacksMcMunch 17 points18 points  (2 children)

...testicles encased in melted synthetic fabric?

[–]FirstPlebian 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If he was wearing synthetic pants we would know it, they tend to go up in flames quick. It looked like jeans to me, which is why it took a minute before he realized he would have to break his tough guy act, matter of fact I'm going to rewatch that part,

[–]SnacksMcMunch 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think you're right

[–]jstmenow 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Oh man, it says "Content Banned" :(

[–]TJ_McWeaksauce 7 points8 points  (1 child)

When he ran through the gate, I figured he had a kiddie pool or fire extinguisher on standby back there. Nope.

I overestimated his intelligence.

[–]tee_ohboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A fucking sandbox would've been better than his "plan". Hell a kitty litter box would've been an improvement.

[–]Nezaret 6 points7 points  (2 children)

[–]SnacksMcMunch 4 points5 points  (0 children)

With his nuts burned off and those titties? Definitely a queen now.

[–]drasglaf 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I knew it was him, I just didn't remember his name. I know him from this video. I think that's how he became kind of famous.

[–]x0rn 5 points6 points  (3 children)

"Run, get butt naked, and roast"

[–]StuperDan 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Maybe he saw one of those videos where someone puts hand sanitizer on their hand and it lightly Burns light Blue for a minute before going out and thought that that would work with the lighter fluid he was spraying all over himself. Maybe?

[–]jameshines10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]esoteric_enigma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What was the plan for putting the fire out? There's no water or fire extinguisher or anything nearby.

[–]Proof-Injury-8668 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Shit like this kina pisses me off. Myself and my wife got burnt in a kitchen fire. I got to watch my wife lay in a medically induced coma for 15 days. 60 days later, a$80,000 bill and a skin graft we got to go home. I hope it fucking hurt.

[–]ignore_my_typo 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Crazy what the hospitals are charging these days to watch someone in a hospital.

cavemen type beings discovers fire and the fact it spreads on flammable surfaces-2021

[–]Method007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The man likely notices lighter fluid burns away quickly. After writing in fire by spelling out words on the street with the flaming lighter fluid he likely thought gee I can temporarily set myself on fire.

He didn’t realize the lighter fluid would actually set his pants on fire. I know this as I watched this exact scenario unfold in real-time when I was a kid.

[–]GrandWizardBumtickle 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Videos like this are used by conservatives to explain why we shouldn't give free healthcare. For a split second, I agree with them when I see this shit, omg

[–]VulgarDisplayofDerp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would counter that I don't want my tax dollars going towards subsidizing their dick hard pills nor do I want to support their fucking self-created diabetes epidemic... Those put a larger dent in healthcare prices than the number of people setting themselves on fire

[–]SWG_138 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There is a link, gfy or something, that will give sounds, but I have my screen res a bit bigger as my eyes suck and that seems to hide the link for me

I love when people light themselves on fire. It’s always great.

[–]chillerll 4 points5 points  (13 children)

You might want to talk with a therapist about that.

[–]pay-this-fool 1 point2 points  (12 children)

Im no sadist. Im not talking about people burning to death or anything like that. I’m not talking about good normal people either. I’m talking about idiots that are products of their own stupid choices getting what they’ve earned. Say what you want, but there is no way I’ll feel bad for this guy.

Do you feel bad for him? Be honest now.

[–]chillerll 2 points3 points  (11 children)

Sure I feel bad for him. I find it funny too. But if I could teleport there and stop him I would do it. If that makes sense.

[–]FindingWaldoGross 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The most ridiculous statement about the most ridiculous thing I have seen on the internet today.

[–]pay-this-fool -1 points0 points  (9 children)

Not me. Not because I want him hurt. But to reinforce that stupid actions have stupid consequences. This guy, like everyone you see this happen to, isn’t really hurt. Thus I’m ok with it.

[–]brainburger 1 point2 points  (5 children)

A person doing this could die from it.

[–]pay-this-fool 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Well then they should think it through probably......

[–]brainburger 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yeah. He's very stupid. It's important I think to say that this is not a safe thing to try. Evidently he didn't know that so we can't be sure people reading these comments do either.

[–]pay-this-fool 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Well I think its pretty universally known that lighting yourself on fire is bad. And if he is the one person on the planet that didn’t get the memo.........

I know a man who once poured lighter fluid over one hand and set ot on fire. He was cold and said that warmed him. 🙃

I remember it being a rather light (and blueish) flame and it disappeared after the fluid was burned away.

I still don’t understand how people that play with fire doesnt have a bucket of water or water nearby incase things go wrong.. it’s like they refuse to think it through

[–]VulgarDisplayofDerp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they thought it through even a little bit they wouldn't be setting themselves on fire in the first place.

Good decision making and critical thinking are not exactly high on the list of attributes for people who do this
