“I’m no stranger to weird nights drinking at various Grand Rapids establishments and I hear a ton of messed up crap! This is one of those tales. It's another edition of From the Bar Stool."

Holy crap do I hear some F’d up stuff when I’m out drinking! Last weekend we were out slaughtering beers & the subject of Valentines Day came up and one of the guys I was drinking with told me about this guy that went bonkers when his wife left him last year right before Valentines Day. I don’t care how much you love your wife, this is just crazy.

Dude told me last year two days before Valentines Day a 37 year old Florida dude’s wife told him she wanted a divorce. So the guy walks outside, grabs the gas can for his lawn mower, pours the whole thing over his head and lights himself on fire! Like this guy completely burst into flames! Like a giant raging man fire!

Dude, totally on fire, then ran out to the front of his house and started running around in circles on his front lawn. His neighbors ran over to him and tried to put out the flames, but, as the guy was burning, he begged them to not put him out and to let him burn! I guess the guy was pretty heart broken huh? Or he was just mental as balls! I’m going with mental as balls.

Unfortunately for him I guess, neighbors did put him out and he survived. Dude now has severe 3rd degree burns over his entire body and spent 8 months in intensive car at the burn center. And during the time he was in intensive care, his wife divorced him.
