2001 At-Risk Survivor
Unconfirmed by Darwin

(October 2001, Florida) A dozen Burger King marketing department employees found out first-hand why meat cooks... when they burned their feet on hot coals during a fire-walking ritual. It's the heat!

One woman was hospitalized and the others were treated by a doctor summoned to the scene. The company-sponsored event was intended to promote teamwork. Next time you complain about your company's inane team-building exercises, remember this story and count yourself lucky.
