... or, How Stupid Can You Be, to play with fire on a giant heap of peat in the middle of the worst drought in decades?
Answer: If you're the military, that stupid and then some.

Link in German

Summary: Military tests rockets in a peat bog during a headline-making months-long drought. Fire happens. Military fire truck breaks down, no replacement available, so they let it burn. Two weeks later, still burning. Storm now threatens to spread fire into inhabitated areas.

If they are damned lucky, the storm will bring serious heavy rainfall. And even then, peat bog fires are *so* much fun to put out.

Because, hey, our fires won't set dry peat alight... quite different from some stupid kid's campfire, because that is strictly forbidden when there are wildfire warnings all over the place.

I got a sample of some organic body lotion in the drugstore. Today I tried it out. And now I'm glittering.

WTF?
