Gothamist – An unidentified man was critically injured yesterday afternoon after a flash fire in a Midwood, Brooklyn basement set his clothes ablaze. An FDNY spokesman says first responders rushed to the scene, at 910 McDonald Avenue, shortly after 1:30 yesterday and transported the man in critical condition to Maimonides Medical Center. Security camera footage of the incident shows the burning man wandering along the sidewalk in a daze. Sources tell the Daily News the man was drying tobacco leaves for his upcoming “hookah binge,” and a neighbor says he may have been using acetone when fumes from the chemicals ignited the pilot light in the basement’s water heater. ABC 7 reports:
The man’s clothing was literally burned off his body, and firefighters were on the scene in minutes. But it was the work of two men — a truck driver and a businessman — who sprung into action, got him on the ground and put out the flames.“I hung up the phone and I started chasing him,” passerby Alex Mayer said. “And I’m like, ‘Drop and roll! Drop and roll!’ I caught up with a half block up, when he finally dropped.”
“He dropped on his side to roll, but he was still on fire,” the truck driver, Claude, said. “And I took the fire extinguisher out of the truck and I sprayed him…It put the fire out.”
“One guy came out of the truck with his fire extinguisher and sprayed his sneakers,” Mayer said. “And another guy literally grabbed the shirt of his back.”
“I don’t know if he was bald or not but he definitely didn’t have any hair left now,” Mayer tells the Post. “His lips were white. A lot of his clothing melted.”
I wonder if Taylor Swift thought about including this in her Welcome To New York song? Welcome To New York! Its been waiting for you! Welcome to New York! There are tobacco bootleggers walking around the streets set ablaze by a chemical fire!
I can’t imagine a hookah binge is worth losing your skin, lips and hair. If we’re being honest I dont even really know what a hookah binge is. I think hookah is quite literally the dumbest thing anyone can spend time doing. Its a complete waste of time and money. There was always kids in high school who loved that shit. Go to a fucking hookah bar in the city and smoke fruit flavored tobacco and shit. Uhh no thanks dude. I’m good with my Mikes Hard Lemonade and my shitty weed. To each their own though, I guess. Everyone has their own vice. But I’m gonna go out on a limb and say 3rd degree burns over 90% of your body probably wasn’t worth it. No hookah binge is worth living almost burning alive.

Did it move for you too? It took me from 6-to-midnight and lit me a cigarette once it was done. $10,000 has never looked so fucking sexy. Do I start at the top (007: Goldeneye) and go through the entire alphabet? Or do I just dabble with the old favorites like Kart and Donkey Kong Country? Maybe I’ll mix in some Wrestlemania 2000? You’re right, there are more questions than answers right now.
Two more things:
1. My Mount Rushmore 64 is Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, and Ocarina of Time. I don’t think anyone can rationally argue against that fearsome foursome.
2. This video will always stand the test of time, mostly because of the slow motion ending. That kid looks like a young Jonathan Papelbon. Actually if you told me that was Paps, I would believe you.

They say pimpin aint easy and now you know why. You’re tryin to slang that pussy and you got guys on the subway in Flatbush who wanna holler at her for free. Thats not how it works, bruh. 50 dollas and then you talkin. You don’t just walk up to the guys on the corner selling fruit and vegetables off their table and swipe an apple and eat it for free, do you? Of course not. So why on earth would you walk up to THIS guy:
and assume his big booty hoe in a leopard print dress is available for free? Its hard out there for a pimp and its because of clowns like this who don’t respect the game.
PS – There are two types of people in this world. These people:
Who decide they are gonna be Gotham’s Hero and jump in on a pimp fight to break the whole thing up like an asshole. And these people:
Who sit back and watch a pimp, a hooker, and two scumbags beat the shit out of each other with a smile and a bowl of pupcorn.
CNN - Just how easy would it be for the leader of the free world to steal your girl? Oh, please—Barack Obama could be multitasking and still make her forget all about you. Casting his early vote for November’s midterm election in Chicago this morning, Obama was standing next to a young woman named Aia Cooper when her fiancé, Mike Jones, walked past the pair and voiced his insecurity. “Mr. President, don’t touch my girlfriend,” he said. Unruffled, Obama used the opportunity to chat up Cooper, poking fun at Jones’ behavior and ultimately planting a kiss on her cheek. “Now he’s really jealous,” the president quipped.
All I’ll say is this guy is lucky he did this to Obama and not Slick Willie. I mean yea, Obama is Commander In Chief. You still gotta be cocky to drop that on POTUS. And yea, he smooth and slick enough to flip it on this guy and crack some jokes and lay a kiss on his girl. But if this was Clinton he probably would have fucked her on the spot. Probably would have flipped her upside down and did a standing 69 right there at that voting booth. And then when he was finished he’d just give that Bill Clinton chuckle and be like “I didn’t touch your girl, fella. She touched me” or something with a thumbs up and a smile. Not only will he touch her, but Bill Clinton will give her a Secret Service codename before you know what hit you.
PS – That girl is laughing now but shes gonna be PISSED when they go home
