FLAMING Kickball

Seems police officers in Des Moines got an interesting 911 call yesterday: kids playing flaming kickball. When the cops arrived on the scene, they found two children, ages 12 and 14, standing on a driveway that reeked of gasoline. Nearby: a gas can whose spigot had melted. According to the police report: “Both said they poured gas on a baseball, lit it on fire and kicked it back and forth, pouring more gas on it to keep it lit.”

Well … at least the kids were outdoors, getting some exercise…

    Now these are the kind of kids that should be coming to classes at The Crucible where they can learn how to more appropriately channel their fiery creativity with blacksmithing, welding, torchcutting, flameworking, kinetics and more!!
