Russia is a very strange place, full of people who do insane things for fun. But even the compatriots of skyscraper-scaling, taser-abusing, car-flipping maniacs are aghast at this video of a dude trying (with, technically speaking, some success) to put some butane in his lighter.

The title, to wit, translates as “How can you be so stupid,” while the top comment argues that this guy is “probably from Ukraine.” In any event, enjoy the slowly mounting horror and the swift inferno that follows.

As of this writing, about half of Siberia is still on fire.
