Report of substantiating anecdote -

Authorities say two brothers accidentally blew up their house after celebrating a $75,000 winning lottery ticket by purchasing marijuana and meth, according to  this Fox News report from Wichita, Kansas:

Watts said the explosion happened after one of the brothers went to the kitchen to refuel the butane torches they planned to use to light their bongs. The brother emptied a couple large cans of butane lighter fluid, leaking butane into the air.
Eventually, butane vapor reached the pilot light in the furnace, causing the blast.

and followed it with a conclusion that the occurrence provided further evidence, as if any were needed, that lotteries are a tax on the stupid
