    I almost hope one of them gets killed/nuetered because of this. I think it would make an excellent darwin award.

    What do you have to be thinking? "I'll just put this potentially explosive volatile fuel in this thin glass tube, and then light it! What could go wrong? Duur!!!!" #-o

    Why weren't these two on life support before this misadventure? I'd think folks this cerebrally-challenged couldn't breathe without assistance.

    Actually a force was with them. Unfortunately for them, the force was the bonding energy between oxygen and carbon atoms during the combustion of hydrocarbons. [-X

    I just wonder if either of them said just before light their sabers "I have a bad feeling about this."?

    They probably got tired of doing this, especially after all their friends were dead.

    According to other news reports (I don't have the URL at hand at the moment), they also used soap with the gasoline to keep it from burning too fast.

    . . .napalm, in other words. . .they filled fragile glass tubes with napalm. . .



    In their defense, the effect of mixing a detergent with flammable liquids may not have been immediately obvious. . .though you gotta think they would realize how fragile flourescent lights were. . . #-o

    That's why one proceeds slowly in unknown territory if one is interested in donating one's genetic heritage to the next generation.

    Maybe they didn't know that jedi robes are made of asbestos, I mean it should be obvious after the lava battle in RotS.

    Since the information on this story is sparse I think it's possible that they were just idiots trying to make pipe bombs, and lightsabre thing was cover story to get rid of any bomb-making charges.
