Human Torch Runs 645 Feet While on Fire: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Austrian stunt man ran 645 feet while on fire to break the world record for longest distance run during a full body burn.

Joe Todtling donned flame-resistant Nomex clothing and fire gel Friday in his hometown of Passail before igniting himself and running 645 feet with a team of local firefighters following closely in case of mishap."

UPI

The Guinness Book of World Records shouldn`t recognize such blatantly dangerous records like "longest run during a full body burn."

I wouldn`t be surprised if this video encourages at least one moron without flame-resistant clothing and with a gang of his drunken buddies, instead of a team of firefighters following closely as he sets himself on fire in an attempt to break the world record for longest distance run during a full body burn.

Todtling may think he`s a hot shot, but only a moron would set such a dangerous record.
