But on the plus side, he smelled like delicious french fries.

CSB Time: Several years back, I was coming into work, and while walking through one of the local ERs, smelled this delicious smell - almost like a delicious, mouthwatering BBQ would smell like.

I walked up to the secretary and asked them where that delightful smell was coming from. She recoiled in horror and told me that there was a guy who got burned trying to light his grill with gasoline in the resus room.

Why was there a monkey room in the ER?

Why is there room in the ER for resus monkeys?

Could also be potential smoke inhalation, maybe slammed into a wall, the extent would be unknown until a medical professional checked him out.

For whatever reason despite having seen the episode of Beavis and Butthead originally when aired, although there is an obvious connection with the lyrics, I always thought this was from the video for  Pardon Me by Incubus... Thank you for clearing up over fifteen years of apparent confusion I did not know I suffered from.

Two things:

1) Why was school cancelled for everyone else for the rest of the day?   I know it's been decades since I went to school, but WTF?  Do people think they cancel work, when someone gets hurt?

2) As I read what passes for an article from ABC, I wonder:  Does anyone know anything?  We don't know if the student made any threats or statements before starting himself on fire; we don't know what  injuries he sustained; we don't know how the student set the fire; we don't know if students were in class when the fire was reported.  What the heck do we know?   A cook cut herself trying to put the boy out.

That had to have been awkward. "Gosh that BBQ'd human flesh sure smells tasty!"

See? The government is right. Blazing will put you in the hospital. It could even kill you.

1. Seriously? So if your coworker tries to kill himself in your office by setting himself on fire, you figure business as normal ASAP?
2. The article says no one knows anything. Very sorry.

Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman Lynn Setzer says Standley Lake High has been closed for the day and students were sent home. She said she didn't know if students were in class when the fire was reported.

Maybe they need someone else to be the voice of that county's schools because this one doesn't know what's going on.

It happened at 7:12am, before classes started and when most kids were just arriving for school. The school was shut so they could do a security sweep of the entire building, likely SOP. Link

Don't be rash, let's give him a break. If I strain really hard I can sense a tingling numbness like a concussion wave of minor pain.

I shiate you not, this verbal diarrhea is giving my hands cramps like they're constipated with bad ideas. Don't needle me with questions; this ain't for the faint of heart.  You should operate on the notion that sore points need to be nursed.

Now, it's late. I bid good bedriddence to you all!

People don't burn very well. You only have to be on fire for mere seconds to die slowly, painfully. My guess is that the guy's dead.

1) Yup.  That's my job.  Deal with the crisis, provide post trauma counseling to those who need it, and get everything back to normal ASAP. Last time someone died on my job, we didn't send people home.
2) Typically, articles are made of facts.  Not this one, I guess.

I don't know where you work, but I teach in a high school. Two things:

1) The purpose of a school is to learn
2) If some kid lit himself on fire in the cafeteria before school started, no learning will take place the rest of the day.

Just thinking here, are you actually trained in post-trauma counseling? Or is this some sort of GED thing you picked up online?

The poor guy might have burns, but at least he's not a total asshole who wastes his pathetic life on Fark making asshole comments.  I hereby put an ancient Bohemian curse on all you dipshiats who make mean-spirited comments:  may you all go through life as total losers with personality disorders.  See, it's working already.

And -1,000,000,000 karma points for being jerks.

And  I hereby shake off the dust from this pathetic, time-wasting site and go on to have a productive life instead...

The man he stepped up to the microphone and he gave it a kiss.
It was a big wet, slippery kiss.
And he had sweat dripping off of his nose onto the windscreen.
As he looked out over the audience he said,
God bless you, God bless you one and all.
Then he took a can of Ronson lighter fluid
And he squirted it over the top of his head.
And proceeded to light himself on fire
As he stood there glowing and said,
Remember this day.
