So, here’s something else you shouldn’t try if you have brains. It’s called a barrel ride. Take a 55-gallon drum and put 4 gallons of methanol in it. Drop a match in and sit on it. In theory, it should cause the drum to slide across the parking lot like a rocket…but if the drum is sealed, it blows up, and you get flown to the burn unit with severe burns. That’s what happened to a couple of unnamed men in SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Washington.
I love how the men were described as responsive when paramedics arrived. I’m sure their responses consisted of “ow ow ow ow ow ow shit I’m in a lot of pain…”
