Some people really are blessed with an uncanny amount of stupidity:

Two men were allegedly inhaling gas at a Dunedin home this afternoon when a LPG bottle exploded and the pair was engulfed in flames.

The 17 and 18-year-old men suffered serious burns after the fire broke out at the home on Gordon Rd, Mosgiel, just before 2pm.

The pair had been getting high by sniffing the contents of a 9kg LPG bottle when it exploded, a Fire Service spokesperson said.

Witnesses reported hearing two explosions, and the teens ran out of the house in flames, the Otago Daily Times said.

The friends were taken to Dunedin Hospital with serious burns. One is in a serious condition while the other is in a critical condition, an ambulance spokesperson said.
