A Swedish man’s attempt to impress his girlfriend on Friday night backfired, putting him in the hospital with serious burn injuries and facing allegations of endangering the public.

The woman told police in Västervik in south eastern Sweden that her boyfriend poured gasoline over his arm and set the fuel on fire.

“It obviously didn’t go well. He burned his arm and other parts of his body and was in a state of shock,” said Kalmar police spokesperson Reine Johansson to the TT news agency.

“Don’t ask me what the point of the trick was supposed to be.”

Foreigners!

American teens have been pulling this stunt for decades. What he wanted was lighter fluid. Very, very volatile stuff. Also, very, very thin stuff. You light it and it flash burns for about 2 seconds and then all the fuel is gone (assuming your arm isn't super hairy).

Gasoline, on the other hand, is oily stuff. It's reasonably thick and it clings. Gasoline takes takes a while to burn off but by that time your fat is capable of fueling the fire so it's all good from chemistry perspective. :D
