What happened to the post on building a campfire?

After re-reading the post, I found an erroneousness bit of information in the last paragraph so I deleted the post… Folks never put a flammable liquid, on a burning fire… Thanks.

  1. It was such an entertaining post too. I took it as tongue firmly in cheek, but it was probably a good idea to pull it

  2. Good grief, I guess you think people are as stupid as D Finestein thinks they are. It makes me sick that even a blog such as yours has to assume the masses are so stupid you have to edit out such a silly thing. Wow…

  3. I understand…I guess my criticism and frankly sorrow is directed more towards those who do ruin things for the rest of us.

    It’s a crying shame that some people are so naive or so stupid that comedy, shtick, and sarcasm is taken literally. And we wonder how people confuse reality with fantasy? I know someone would have to try it. My own father, a retired nuclear engineer, former Army Officer, and life long gardener and DIY’r, at age 87 decided to start his burn barrel with gasoline since he was out of lighter fluid. Thank heaven he was standing far enough back that when the fumes blew up, it knocked him to the ground lightly burning and removing all the hair from his head, face, and arm.

    Wise decision.

  12. This is exactly the reason to “Save page as” onto my hard drive whenever I love a joke or picture or entire website even. I have a bunch of stuff crybabies have made be taken down due to their own implied stupidity applied to anyone else.

  13. 30 years ago, before popular, TALLADEGA race field, watching Alabama fans build a fire…….that was entertaining.
