For family and friends who think that I am silly: check out what this guy has been up to!!

An acclaimed novelist lost his office in Carson City on Thursday when he threw a lit piece of paper into gasoline.

Fantasy writer David Eddings, 75, said he was using water to flush out the gas tank of his broken-down Excalibur sports car, when some fluid leaked. In a lapse of judgment he readily admitted, Eddings lit a piece of paper and threw into the puddle to test if it was still flammable. The answer came in an orange torrent.

The fire raged through the garage and a quarter of the way into the office that occupies the lot next door to his home. His 95-year-old mother-in-law inside the home, came outside to find the juniper trees lining the driveway had gone up in flames, too.

Eddings said his intention to was to prevent a fire - he was afraid to leave a tank full of gasoline in a car that had gone kaput - but instead he did the opposite.

"One word comes to mind," the renowned wordsmith said as he stood in a pajama shirt and slippers. "Dumb."


LOL!! I am peeing in myself!

Man, he's so out of the loop, this author of yours. He could've easily called one of them Bahraini pyromaniacs, and they would've done the job for him.

Good practice for them, just in case Marcel comes back again ;)

LOL! Evil Odd! Do you think Marcel will be met with a Nancy Ajram-reception when he is next in Bahrain?
