  • Darwin honourable mention nomination?

    Man injured in fuel drum explosion

    A 17-year-old man has been injured in a fuel drum explosion in far north Queensland.
    Police say the man was using an electric grinder to open the drum when sparks ignited the fuel and it exploded in his face.
    The accident happened at Bingil Bay, south of Innisfail, and he was flown to Cairns Hospital with serious burns to his head and upper body.

    I hope the blokes alright, but WTF?

    Pfft, 17 isn't a man.

        I've heard of this happening before.
        People assume that because the drum is empty and dry, it won't ignite.

            Because at 17 you shouldn't know that fuel + ignition source = dumb?

                  i think its classed as an 'honourable mention'
                  As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

                  'Soul' - Italian word for unreliability.

                            you don't have to die for a darwin, you just have to ensure your genes aren't passed on.

                              By the wording it doesn't sound like it was even empty...
