It seems a 62 year old man decided to strap a rocket to his back while sledding. He reportedly filled a used automotive muffler with gasoline and gunpowder - never a good combination - and headed down the hill. The device exploded halfway down the hill, burning 18 percent of the man's body. The guy is said to be in stable condition. Here's the quote of the day. Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe remarked, "Apparently he has this sledding party every year and he always does outrageous things at it, but he's never blown himself up before." Wile E. Coyote couldn't have done it better.
