Thief Blows Himself Up After Peeing On A Transformer

Dont Go Chasin Waterfalls

No, we don't mean an Autobot! Ha!

A thief was attempting rob a UK power substation, when he decided that it was a good time to relieve himself — against an electrical transformer.

You can guess what happened!

Yep, he blew up!

Michael Harper, 36, was permanently disfigured after suffering serious burns in the blast.

NOT ONLY that though! His partner-in-crime? Yeah, he totally tried to leave him behind! The father of two was left burning on the floor by his accomplice, 50-year-old Richard Boyce!

We're not done yet either… the explosion left about 2,000 people without power and caused £26,500 ($42,000) in damage.

Then, Harper was jailed for a year. The judge said that he had already been punished for almost losing his life and becoming permanently disfigured. The other guy got 4 years.

What a CRAY-ZAY story!

This is why you look before you pee! LOLz!

    WTF is wrong with some of your staff Perez?? The "ha" and joking about this is wrong. A man (father of 2) is "blown up" and permanently disfigured .. not funny at all. Your idiocy tops this guys for sure.

    Natural selection doesn't differentiate.

    Perez, are you a sociopath? A man almost dies from serious burns in an explosion, and is left permanently disfigured, and you start your first sentence with "HA!" and end your last sentence with "LOLz!" ??? Once a bully, always a bully, eh Perez? Yes, stealing is wrong, but even the Judge said the man had suffered enough, and gave him only one year in jail instead of 4 years. Perez, you need serious help.

    Do you think his two children will find this story "LOLZ"?

    All you people who have sympathy for the thief just wonder how many people rely on their electricity supply for their lives. This guy was stealing their rights to life. What if your Mum or Dad died because of his actions?

    Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – Probably no more than the fact that their father was stealing from a community power station for profit.
