Default Cockroach Slain, Husband Badly Hurt

Reuters - Tel Aviv

An Israeli woman'* fight with a stubborn cockroach put her husband in the hospital with burns, a broken pelvis and broken ribs, the Jerusalem Post newspaper reported yesterday.

The woman, frightened by the insect when she found it in their living room, stepped on it, threw it in a toilet and sprayed a full can of insecticide on it when it refused to die.

Her husband came home from work, went to the toilet and lit a cigarette. When he threw the cigarette butt into the bowl, the insecticide fumes ignited, "seriously burning his sensitive parts," the Post wrote.

When paramedics were called to the home in Tel Aviv, they laughed so hard when they learned what had happened that they dropped the stretcher down the stairs, breaking the unidentified man'* pelvis and ribs.

I watch mythbusters all the time and I always think of MOS & Bill Wren as Adam & Jamie. It is a very cool show!! I like the crazy things they do, especially when they blow stuff up

Mythbusters isn't as analytical as they think they are. I find many holes in their experiments quite often.
