Lawn care is a big downside of home ownership, sucking up your precious weekend hours. You could buy a robot to cut the grass, but that costs thousands of dollars. Why not just set your f**king yard on fire? (You have property insurance, right?)
An Oregon man, sick of pulling weeds around his house, recently sent them back to hell with a propane torch. You'll never guess what happened next, according to a local fireman: "[A]lthough he was also wetting down the area with a garden hose, the fire suddenly spread to vegetation next to the home and then ignited the home's exterior cedar siding."
It took a few dozen firefighters half an hour to tame the inferno, about the same amount of time it took last month when another Oregon dude gardened with fire. C'mon, guys, if you're gonna light up some weed, it shouldn't be the kind growing between your wife's azaleas.
