    Calling to mind any number of Home Improvement episodes, police say a 62-year-old Independence Township man was hospitalized Sunday after strapping a homemade rocket to his back while sledding.

    Fox 2 reports the rocket -- a combination of gunpowder, match heads and gasoline stuffed in a motorcycle muffler -- exploded during a downhill ride at a party he hosted.

    “Apparently, he has this sledding party every year, and he always does outrageous things at it, but he’s never blown himself up before,” Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe told the Detroit Free Press.

    As you might imagine, authorities believe alcohol played a role, but no charges have been filed as the investigation continues.

    The Oakland Press reports the man suffered second-degree burns on 18 percent of his body and is in stable condition at POH Regional Medical Center.

    When I see someone do something that common sense or practical experience would have stopped them from ever doing, or even thinking about doing, my mind goes to work.

    1) Are they a teenager?
    2) Are they a Democrat?
    3) Are they a teenage Democrat? :eek:

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
