    But did the spider survive??? And was PETA called to investigate? And what about a class-action lawsuit against the spray can and lighter manufacturers for not posting a warning about potential fires while trying to kill a spider? This could be big!

    This guy is a complete moron. This proves that you cannot save people from themselves. I would enjoy reading the claims report from his Insurance company.

        Thanks Destro. You’re a toy. I had you, but then turned 12 and gave up all things GI Joe.

    You really need to read the full article. It is priceless.
    It contains a picture of a spider with the following caption:

    “The spider, a similar one pictured, is believed to be dead after the blaze consumed the entire wall.”

      The article says it was a rental. So much for getting his security deposit back. No worries about those pictures Mom insisted on hanging.

      “There are safer, more effective ways to kill a spider than using fire,” Moore said. “Fire is not the method to use to kill a spider.”

    Would this qualify as an occurrence, though? By definition it wouln’t qualify as an accident would it?

    While it may not have been the intent to burn the house down, it was an intentional act, wasn’t it?

      No. It was an intentional act to try to kill the spider, but not to burn down the house. Similar to corporal punishment being an intentional act, but not the causing of injury.

      Are you saying he should have shot the spider instead of trying to set it on fire?

        News flash. We don’t need guns. Liberal penises are plenty big without them.

        Liberals don’t need guns. They buy their food or grow it. They don’t get spooked out after watching Red Dawn, Rocky IV or any other Russian themed film. They go to gyms and work out and don’t rely on guns for defense, they can fight for themselves. Even yoga or zumba instructor can defend themselves or doesn’t look for trouble. Even a republican that works out at Curves or Planet Fitness should be able to take car of business. This is the same argument made 6000 years ago with “spear control” only we “tend” to be more civilized now.

    A broom mash, a shoe stomp, maybe even spraying the spider directly with the paint…would have sufficed? I’m just saying. And if someone starts a class action suit for their own ignorance and makes $…WOW how screwed up are we?

        Hipsters are more on the Libertarian side of the political equation. A Branch Davidian off shoot of the Republican Party. Only they were “neato” glasses, ride old fashion bikes, and have a lot of tats.

        The fact that he tried to kill it with fire might be an indicator of his age. He was 24. Slightly older than you, huh Destro?
