Dave Burns

I had 2nd and 3rd degree burns to 20% of my body back in 2014 from playing with flash powder, the stuff that gives fireworks their pretty colors. It's basically powdered magnesium and oxidizer. I had to be helicopter lifted to the burn unit. I spent days in ICU and three weeks in hospital. The pain was level 10 for weeks and my body began to shutdown. I had to have skin graft surgery and blood transfusions. I had over 500 staples in my skin from the skin grafts. After getting out of hospital I had to get around with a cane for months as I could barely walk from the pain and skin tightness. I had to go to physical therapy for six months and wear compression garments for a year. I was off work for 3 months and got laid off once I came back. I ended up with drug problems from the pain killers. It completely changed my life. My hospital bill was half a million dollars. It could have been a LOT worse. 
Don't mess around with high powered flammables.

The Fake News Media Exposed

For Memorial day, I'd like us all to take a moment to remember that the big bad orange man did not refuse to visit the dead American WWI soldiers at Aisne-Marne cemetery in France because they were "losers" and "suckers". We know this story is untrue because: 1. Whitehouse staff who were present that day have publicly refuted it. 2. The Atlantic magazine, who originated the "losers" and "suckers" story, covered the incident two years earlier when it happened, but made no mention of why the visit was actually canceled, despite them probably having been told the reason. 3. Electronic communications from the US Navy obtained under the  freedom of information act show that the visit was canceled by the Navy because Marine One was grounded due to bad weather. 4. Noted orange man hater, John Bolton, in his book states that the visit was canceled because Marine One was grounded by bad weather and the security and logistics of a long motorcade to the cemetery were impractical. He also states in his book that the media turned the story into one about the orange man being afraid of the rain and gleefully pointing out that other world leaders still traveled to the cemetery that day. 5. The orange man gave a one hour keynote address at another American WWI cemetery near Paris the next day, but this got no mention in the mainstream media.
Then, once this story came out in The Atlantic, coincidentally just two months before the 2020 election, and two years after the incident occurred in 2018, the Associated Press, The New York Times, and The Washington Post all ran The Atlantic's story as if it was fact. 

All this reminds me of a certain saying the orange man had...
