    I'd have driven the 47 miles to do a cut out with pturley. I wonder if they weree honey bees or something else.

    classic example of cheaper is better. No wonder some states have a minimum age to buy lighters. Oh and hold my beer and watch this

    the more I deal with the public the more of this I see, I scratch my head and wonder as a race how we have survived this long with soooo many stupid people on this planet:roll: Im a firm believer that if a person proves without a shadow of a doubt to be that stupid they should be prevented from breading:lol:

    Zookeep, did you drive home from Sonnys after a few jumbo bud lites? We all do stupid things at times, when others are looking at what we did.

    How many hundreds of people have done the same thing successfully? Most times, it's only in hindsight that it seems to be stupid.

    I bet you can still look back over your lifetime and see things you did that you now feel were totally stupid. I know I could write a book on mine.

    That story is sad but funny. Just another reason to call a keep to remove them. He could have paid the keep a couple hundred dollars and used the rest to buy a good used truck or something.

    In retrospect, we have all done things that in hindsight which is always 50/50 and wondered how we managed to live to be the adults we have become. In this particular incident, there are clear reasons NOT to have done what was done, the possibilities were too bad to consider the actions done. So to save a couple hundred dollars, they will now spend thousands..worse the results were quite predictable and one would thing that adulthood wouild teach the commonsense about it--apparently not--but then thats why those in the construction trade still have a few jobs.

    Barry,

    I know a young Texas contractor that would have tried this. I let him work on my house once, in about 2007, then determined that I'd do less damage just doing it myself.

    The construction trades may be better in other states.

    did anyone happen to scroll to the comments .....

    "I guess the good news is it wasn't so confined a space that when he lit it the resulting fireball set his unbrilliant self on fire. Other sites say a passerby motorist called it in, so where was this self-professed Einstein........"

    "Well, did he get rid of the bees at least?"
    :shock:
    the next guy....
    "LOL?

    i am guessing 'einstein' ran his self out of there after the resulting explosion, and after burning/singing any hair or skin on his head (empty of brain cells), or that of the exposed arm he used to light the the roof under the porch up with, he was treated in the local emergency room....to add to his $8,ooo loss......i wonder how he explained that? :lol:
