Dar-Wednesday

It’s time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.
(4 December 1996, Indiana) A Jay County man using a cigarette lighter to check the barrel of a muzzleloader was killed Monday night when the weapon discharged in his face, sheriff's investigators said.
Gregory, 19, died in his parents' rural Dunkirk home about 11:30 p.m. Investigators said Pryor was cleaning a .54-caliber muzzleloader that had not been firing properly. He was using the lighter to look into the barrel when the gunpowder ignited.

Dumb and ass are not mutually exclusive...

apparently since he was using a muzzleloader he was forgetting that safer lighting alternatives such as flashlights had been invented? what a dope.

Oh, oh -- they invented this thing ... it's called a flashlight.

Lime said that. Oh well, next time I'll read all the comments first.
