    Who wrote that crap?

    ...Ms Hill, who suffered 40% burns to her whole body, was treated by ambulance personnel in her kitchen before being taken...

    What is a 40% burn?:confused:

    With serious burns it's described by the percentage of the body (approximately) burnt, and 40% burns is really quite bad and can be lethal.

    OT: You do have to remember, if the average IQ is 100 then 50% of people are below that :(

    Unfortunately it seems that Diane Hill has already reproduced, so removing her from the gene pool won't do much to help humanity. :sigh:

    This video reminds me of a blonde that was in my history class in school. In year 11 (age 15/16, last year of secondary school, for those outside of the UK) towards the end of term she asked the history teacher what Nazis were (pronouncing it 'Nazees'). I laughed so hard, but my soul died a little.

    While what she did was colossolly stupid, she didn't really know better, just look at the misiter who recommended keeping jerry cans in the home. Of course, it's a highly flammable liquid, if you fail to treat it with the utmost respect then these are the consequences.

    I think he's referring to the wording. At least in the US, it would be ".. burns to 40% of the body", not "40% burns to the whole body". The latter doesn't really make any sense. It's like the line from anchorman - "60% of the time, it works... every time". Unless it's trying to say she had 2nd/3rd degree burns to her entire body.

    I agree it isn't that well worded, though you could possibly interpret it as "of her whole body, 40% was burnt".

    But it's often used in that context, that way, most people here would understand what it was; I think he was referring to the usage of a percentage system for burns rather than the dodgy wording:D

    Indeed and the post from supermonkey is still relevant - the guy is an even bigger idiot.
