in a spectacular feat of jackassery, prm set his cornflakes on fire yesterday. had to go stomp them out on the porch.
good thing none of the neighbors were watching. or evilgremlin, for that matter.
we had been using the cornflakes box to stop the cold draft from the vent in the middle of the stove. he forgot to move the box before turning the large burner on HI to boil water... i smelled something for a good 5-10 minutes, but it was faint upstairs, and i thought it was a neighbor burning leaves. he smelled it too, and thought it was just me really screwing up the macaroni and cheese. it was actually the cardboard box and a good portion of the flakes consumed in 18-inch flames. heh.
just something you don't see everyday, so i thought i'd mention it.
