    A major inhalant addict and what an idiot but bursting into flames from a taser make sense because of the fuel he was carrying and/or the vapors inside his body which are flammable.

    Not sure but in Syphon Filter the tasers cause combustion to people after a few seconds.

    Urban Chaos: Riot Response also lets you set fire to people with the tazer if you hold it too long.

    Yes but a lot of things in that game could set someone on fire. Burnouts, for example.

    What a stupid idiot, attacking someone who was trying to put out the fire. Poor guy, but he clearly got what he deserved.

    I've yet to see something like this happen. My friend saw a squirrel get electrocuted running on a telephone wire, and another who whipped a pinecone at the head of a seagull and killed it.

    I miss too many interesting things in my life.

    Also when I'm in the gas station, sometimes I get a tendancy to sniff the gasoline, just cause. I really can't help it.

    Well, in the case that me and your sister aren't pyromaniacs, I'd say we're in the clear. [​IMG]

    lol Nah, she's no pyromaniac, she just loves the smell of petrol. She's like you, she doesn't know why either. I just think it stinks of nasty chemicals. [​IMG]

    The real question is if you enjoy the smell of a burning fire. [​IMG]

    Damn, my friend once lit a lighter up to my arm, and it actually smelled kind of fragrant. Lucky I didn't put on any cologne.

    And yes, he charred the hairs on my arm...

    Yeah, that's the same as my sister. She's never huffed petrol or anything like that, but when she gets out of her car to fill the tank she takes nice deep breaths. lol

    Hmm....do not taser anyone holding a container of gasoline. Good safety tip.
