    1. re: Spartanguy

      And why do you take a picture of it instead of putting it out?

      1. re: chileheadmike

        We are in the age of Instagram and Twitter! Pics or it didn't happen. ;)

        1. re: Kontxesi

          Or how to get a lot of hits by posting a staged mess? Don't put it past some and if you've ever watched Tosh you know that to get some attention people will do some pretty amazingly dumb things

          1. re: scubadoo97

            I thought the exact same thing when I looked at many of them.

              What is #1 supposed to be? I'm mesmerized by it!

                    Thanks seamunky. Now I'm mesmerized by THOSE! So colorful, so cheesy, so cool!

          2. re: Spartanguy

            if you have a gas stove, and the flame is on high, and you don't push the pasta into the water, but instead let it hang over the side of the pot, the flames will heat up the dry pasta hanging over and thusly they will combust and burst into flames
            (not that I have experienced that first hand or anything..)
            wink wink, nod nod

          3. Those pizza photos are amazing.

            1. I looked at the article and in a way it is a bit sad -- seeing the misfortunes of others as a way to make yourself feel better.

                This doesn't make me feel better, but I am surprised at what happens. I'm not laughing, but I do think WTF? How did they think this wsa a good idea? And why take a picture of it?

                1. re: Tripeler

                  I don't "feel better" - but I *do* think "WTH were they thinking putting plastic under the cookies in the oven? And I *am* laughing - if people put these pics up there for all to see, they know they weren't the brightest bulbs in the box to have gone wrong in their cooking.

                  1. re: Tripeler

                    Lighten up, it's supposed to be funny :)

                      These people all probably posted these pictures themselves for a laugh. These cooking "accidents" are not misfortunes; they are mistakes. No one need feel sad or bad for chuckling at them.

                    2. At least one of those HAD to be my first ex-wife!!

                      1. Oh dear lord... even before I learned to cook I never did anything that bad.
                        I know some boxed pizzas say to put them directly on the oven rack, but the pictures here show exactly why I never do it.
