GeniusFail: How not to kill a snake
Proof that truth is stranger than fiction: in Texas, a woman set fire to a snake, hoping to kill it. Instead the burning snake slithered over to shrubs near the woman's home. The shrubs caught fire, setting the house on fire. The house burnt down, damaging a neighbour's house as well. There's a nursery rhyme in that story, I'm sure of it. See the original news story here.
