One we probably won't see on America's Funniest Home Videos. Sounds like they were drag racers...
(AP) SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) - Two men who were apparently trying to take an unusual thrill ride were seriously injured in an explosion at a shop that builds and services race cars in Washington state.
Fire Chief Dean Klinger told the Skagit Valley Herald the men put about four gallons of methanol in a 55-gallon barrel in the parking lot Sunday night, sat on top and lit it for a "barrel ride."
Klinger says, "Apparently it was supposed to slide across the parking lot like a rocket. Instead, it blew up."
He says one end of the barrel flew 120 feet.
The men were responsive when paramedics arrived at Funk Racing. They were taken to a local hospital, then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with severe burns.

Normally, I do not post into some other Divisions important discussions.
However, when I see an obvious error, I must speak up.
A true redneck would never "Hey boys, watch this."
He says-- Hey y'all, hold my beer & watch this!
And just for a Tuesday treat here are some things you would never hear a Redneck say... *We don't keep firearms in this house. *You can't feed that to the dog. *No kids in the back of the pick-up, it's not safe. *Wrasslin's fake. *We're vegetarians. *Do you think my hair is too big? *Who's Richard Petty? *Deer heads detract from the decor. *Spitting is such a nasty habit. *I just couldn't find a thing at Wal-Mart today. *Trim the fat off that steak. *The tires on that truck are too big. *I've got two cases of Champagne for the Super Bowl. *Little Debbie snack cakes have too many fat grams. *She's too old to be wearing that bikini. *Those shorts ought to be a little longer, sweety. *Elvis who? *Do you think this ball cap goes with this shirt?
Now, y'all have a nice day, hear!
