You never know when you need this type of knowledge

Starts off with: How to torch a car

Highlights include: light the car from the inside out and a burning newspaper is enough to start the fire. No need for major tools, then.

Currently being of much use to the French.

FYI: the article gives an example of efficient car-burning in Ohio (they burnt American flags. I'm shocked)

The barrier between the engine and the interior is called afirewall because it's intended to contain an engine fire and prevert the passenger compartment from ingiting in a crash.

So there's a *good reason* that lighting the engine doesn't work as well as ligthing the interior. I'm not impressed with the author's research efforts, I have to say.

And I'm suprised they're still bothering to protest things in Ohio.

Heh. I wonder if actually torching cars counts as research.
Ah...Ohio. That bastion of anarchy :-)

That's right, mock the Midwest. It's all fun and games until somebody loses a spleen, is all I'm saying.
