    That has got to be one of the most idiotic things I have ever seen in my life. What the he__ was that guy thinking? He is lucky he didnt set his entire house on fire!

    Yeah that's pretty unbelievable. I'm willing to bet he had been drinking a lot of those spirits he was throwing on that fire!

    Come'on, hasn't anyone else ever spit a little 151 onto the campfire? Not in the house though.

    When I fist got my wood stove I was a bit skiddih on running it overnight, fearing that for some reason it would start my house on fire. Well, after several months I have grown much more comfortable with my stove and now feel totally comfortable loading it up and going to bed. After watching that video, I realized that people like that are the ones who's houses burn down and make newbie responsible wood burners like myself fear the worst. I just cant believ anyone would be that moronic to do that. You know what the scary part is, I am sure he is'nt the 1st person to do that!

    I read a story of a guy who was in a cabin cleaning wax off his skis with rags and gasoline. After using each rag, he put it in the fire in the fireplace. He then wondered why there was a crowd outside, went out to look, and saw the flames shooting out the chimney. The house burned down.
