A man in Texas, in an attempt to get rid his home of a bug infestation, doused himself himself with automotive brake cleaning fluid on Tuesday. The man then vacuumed himself off, which ignited the brake cleaner fumes, causing a pretty big explosion. The amateur exterminator was taken to the hospital in critical condition with second and third degree burns and the explosion was so big that it actually took out a wall of his mobile home!
Seriously, folks. If you have a bug problem, call a freakin' exterminator. They're not that expensive and chances are you won't explode as a result of their bug-ridding practices.
