My Shoes Are Melting!!
2019 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(19 April 2019, California) A Modesto man, gas tank empty, fills a random plastic jug with gas despite specific warnings against this posted on most every gas pump. Naturally he cannot pour the gas into the tank because there is a pesky valve in the way, designed for SAFETY and environmental protection. What to do?

Of course! Melt the neck of the bottle so it can be shaped into a funnel. Well that went as well as one would expect. Badly burned and standing in melted shoes, Burning Man now stands for your consideration as an Honorable Mention. Although our friend missed a Darwin Award, such vaporous thinking will soon set him up FTW!

Develop some sense, anonymous man in your 30's. Your injuries are a warning shot across the bow. Next time will your luck hold?
