    Man gets burned while using lighter to siphon gas

    MUKWONAGO, Wis. - Police said a man was arrested after he used a cigarette lighter while trying to siphon gasoline from a van. The man, who was visiting friends, went to drive home early Saturday but realized that he didn't have enough gas in his SUV.

    Police said the man tried to siphon the gas with help from another woman, but he couldn't see how much gas was in the container, so he used the lighter to check.

    A blast of fire burned his hands and caused nearby residents to call police..........

    I knew someone, well knew of them, that tried to steal gas by placing a bucket under a gas tank of a truck and drilling a whole through the gas tank with a metal bit. Well, metal on metal=BOOM and he ended up in the hospital. I don't think that's as dumb as the guy on here, pretty close though.
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................
