    Man Hurt As Homemade Rocket Sled Explodes

    This is just too funny! I'd expect this sort of thing from someone in the south, but not here in metro Detroit area. I would have paid good money to have seen it though.

    INDEPENDENCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- An Oakland County man was injured when a sledding stunt went wrong.

    Sheriff's deputies said the man held a sledding party at his home on Townview Drive in Independence Township last Saturday night.

    Investigators said they were told by witnesses that the 62-year-old man had been drinking when he fashioned a device using a motorcycle muffler, a piece of pipe, gunpowder, match heads and gasoline.

    Witnesses said the man strapped the device on his back, donned a makeshift helmet and got on a sled, asking someone to light a wick attached to the device.

    Part of the way down the hill, the device exploded, resulting in second-degree burns to the victim's face. One of his eyes was damaged.

    He is currently getting treatment at a local hospital.

    Sheriff's deputies continue to investigate the incident pending possible criminal charges.

    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?
