Gives new meaning to "hot-pants"

A cyclist in Koroszczyn mysteriously burst into flames while riding last week. He told police he was riding along when he smelled smoke. He glanced down and found his pants aflame. Police say it may have been a combination of friction, sweat and the flamable material his pants were made from. According to a police spokesman: "Witnesses said he was like a flaming human torch cycling along the road." Story here. Thanks fritz for the link.
