Fargo Man Arrested For Clearing Snow With Flamethrower

19 posts in this topic

Fargo, ND ? Local resident Todd Fox has been detained for ?reckless endangerment? and ?illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry? for attacking snow with his flamethrower. Fox reportedly became so fed up with the week-long blowing snow epidemic in his area that he decided to KILL IT WITH FIRE.


 


The neighborhood was treated with quite a show last night as Fox unleashed an inferno upon the mountainous snow palace that was his front yard. Neighbors to his immediate right and left noticed a bright orange cloud and could hear what they thought was ?puff the magic dragon spewing mayhem all over hell,? which prompted one of them to notify police.


 


Fox stated that he was simply ?fed up with battling the elements? and that he did not possess the willpower necessary to move ?four billion tons of white bull ****.?


 


Police say that Fox surrendered his efforts immediately upon their arrival and that his front yard ?looked like a hydrogen bomb had gone off.? They think he was just happy to be done with snow removal, even if it did mean a trip to jail.

One of the fighter squadrons here 2 years ago got in deep trouble when to clear snow from one of the HAZ's they towed a jet out, it gunned the engine and span in circles. Figured out they wasted ten's of thousands of pounds. Of course this is one of those stories we're told not to tell, lest a newspaper like The Sun get ahold of it and have a field day. 

 

They did before when a reporter heard a technician blabbing about how the Air Force was paying ?60 for 20W lightbulbs to put on the obstruction lamp of a radar, and these bulbs were literally no different from the ones you'd get in B&Q. But we have to use the contracted parts etc, and thats what the company who supplies them charges. I've seen us get charged ?200 for a standard keyboard with a serial connector before.

Hey it sounds like a much better Idea than my retarded neighbors son who one day tried to clean the snow off his drive way with a push mower. (True story!)

Am I the only one who is concerned that someone has a flamethrower in his garage or attic? I do not think this is useful, even for the summer family barbecues

Totally worth it :laugh:

 

If I was to have something on my criminal record I'd happily accept "Illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry" :rofl:

Taken from the source's comments:

"Flamethrowers are not weapons under federal law. They are agricultural equipment. They're used in the VA swamps for clearing brush.  But since there is no projectile and no explosive force, they are outside ATF purview."

It's funny that they're not considered "fire" arms.

Indeed :p

 

That's got me thinking, If your sleeve was caught on fire and you went and punched someone, would it be classed as assault with a firearm? :p

They would've had a fit seeing what my next door neighbor used to use to get a campfire going 20 years ago.

Mine too :ninja:

And ND isn't the only place they're used foe clearing brush etc. I have a small one for clearing long grass & weeds from fence lines and a backpack mounted propane unit for clearing weeds from driveway & sidewalk. cracks. The propane unit can throw an 8 foot flame and melt snow/ice from steps.

Pretty sure it could be used for home invaders in a pinch - the gloves come off then.;)

They shouldn't have arrested him, he was doing it the best and most lazy way.   Using Flammenwefer to make slippy pathways in the UK non slippy after a snow storm should be legal as the council won't do it.

I've been wanting to do this for years.  problem is, if the concrete gets heated up to much...it will start to explode.
