A new depth for stupidity

AP reports:

A 47-year-old American man’s friends set his prosthetic leg on fire after he lost a drinking bet, causing him to suffer severe burns to his buttocks and lower back.

New Mexico sheriff’s deputies found the man naked on the side of US Route 70 with his prosthetic leg in flames.

Deputies learned that the man and his friends were drinkingย and bet that whoever drank the least would be set on fire.

The man told investigators that at six beers, he drank the least, and agreed to let his friends set him on fire.

He said his friends ignited his prosthetic leg, and the flames spread to his body.

What is surprising is that after only six beers, he would agree to being set on fire. Normally you need at least a dozen beers before being set on fire seems like a good idea.
