What a bar prank may look like...

"Watson, the imbeciles are afoot!"

Felony charge, and they don't search and put the cuffs on him for transport?

This is where being 'tough on crime' got us. Prosecute the fark out of anything even if it doesn't make sense.  The disparity between this stupid prank involving a candle and dousing a place with gas and torching it is rather wide.

wtf are "earwax candles"  do they actually work?

This reminds me of the time Gary's Old Town Tavern burned down Cheers and Coach died in the fire.

Gee and I thought "attempted" had something to do with what someone was attempting to do.

One of my audiology professors should us this video of people using them. You have like a hollow wax stick, you lie down and stick it in your ear and light in on fire to clean you ear by drawing out the ear wax and toxins.

I'd tell you what she thought of them, but I'm guessing you've figured it out by now.

I really do believe that once upon a time systems of justice didn't revolve around always assuming that a person is doing the very, very worst possible thing you might imagine they could be doing.

I mean, I think I've read stories about it, or something.  It wasn't during my lifetime.

Ha ha ha. So then I (stiffles laughter) lit their door on fire. A ha ha ha. They had to rebuild half the place and three people died. Ha ha ha. Oh (catches breath) shiat I got them good that time.

nymersic: It's a good thing police don't have to think to do their jobs.


The thing about this incident is it sounds like the victim is being harassed. The police may have been tired of being called out to this location, because the perp can't take any competition and the police decided to send a message. That message is knock it the fark off or we will bust you.

Pretty much any attempt to set fire to anything (especially if it belongs to someone else) can be considered attempted arson if someone complains to the cops.

I know two people who got into an argument while sitting in a car. During the argument, the guy in the passenger seat used a Bic lighter to make a small burn on the sun visor on the passenger side. It was a dick move, but not particularly threatening or dangerous. Cops later told the guy that he could be charged with attempted arson if the driver of the car decided to press charges. Everybody decided to let it go, and that was that. But something small like that can escalate into serious charges very quickly if someone wants to press the issue.

Maybe I read it wrong, but I thought that the bar that did it is the one that this opposing bar - the one the prank was played on - kept calling the police to try to get them shut down with bogus complaints.

It sounded like the pranker was the one harassed.

Yeah but what you and/or the cops in question might not get is that words mean things, and arson means something else.

People make candles out of ear wax? That's pretty gross.

I have made several candles out of earwax over the years.  I need to find a new scent.

Same here.  "Fire" and "harmless prank" are generally mutually exclusive.

Maybe y'all should consider that the victim of said prank did something heinous to his community, like cut down a tree on his property.

"Not only did I bake the cake, but, I made the candles out my own earwax, to show how much I love you, on your birthday!"

"Wait, where are you going?"

I'm actually wondering if this was some sort of vodou (voodoo) thing, being that it's New Orleans.  It sounds similar to some charms or hexes I've heard coming out of there...
 
2014-01-21 11:46:00 AM
Holistic therapy grudge match: ear wax candler bar vs. aromatherapy & crystals bar.  I don't get the 'prank' aspect either but just lighting a candle on a doorstep seems rather benign.  This definitely needs an elucidating followup.

It would have been easier just to send some guy over for the ole upper-decker.
 
2014-01-21 11:49:18 AM
Don't dick around with fire.  Yeah, it makes for amusing YouTube videos, but that's just dumbass 'Hold my beer; hey y'all watch this' stuff.  When you light a fire and then run away from it, you put other people at risk, even if you only 'meant it' as a prank.

The people who think a burning cone some how cleans their ears need to investigate the head clearing ability of bullets.  I think they would still miss or the sheer amount of bone would deflect most rounds.

This is one of those things I didn't believe when I heard it.  People are stupid, really farking stupid.  If you are one of those that thinks it works I got a simple test for you.  grab a handful of dust.  place it on a table and light your cone.  Now try to suck up that dust.  Yea, works about that well.  just clean your ears the regular ways that don't involve fire.  you are a idiot if you think cleaning your ears should involve fire.

A quick gis seems to indicate that they do pull wax out of your ears. Pretty gross but it seems they do an OK job at cleaning.

No, they don't "work".  They're hollow, so they burn down to a stump which, when you look inside it is filled with wax which people assume came out of their ears. Except it didn't... it came from the goddamn wax candle.

/if you have too much wax in your ears, go to the doctor and get irrigated

Those candles don't go out easy. He had one burning and after he was done with it, he said to hisself, "Hisself, this'd look good on their door over there". Thus, arson.

/anything with fire is arson
//whether of malicious intent or no
///don't eat them, they're malicious

Nice troll. the paper is wax inflused and that's what ya smell during the burn and what ya see after. Sleight-of-hand merchandising in action. As said above, bullets are just as effective, try 'em.

I thought they worked by getting so hot they melted your ear wax and then you tilted your head and it poured out like water

They're paper or cloth dipped in wax and rolled into a cylinder.  So instead of the typical long wax drips that regular candles produce, you get wax mixed with ash in the bottom, which looks a lot like the wax that comes out of your ear.  Really, they don't do anything.
