Imagine the depths of sadness, illness or desperation that would make a person do such a painful thing to themselves. How sad.

I can’t even imagine it.

Scarey, I hope I never feel that alone

The symbolism in this man’s act is palpable. A burnt offering of himself on the corporate alter of blind consumerism. I’m not sure whether to lament for the man or commend his resolve.

The comments on the KNBC website are completely heartless. Evidently a lot of people think this is funny. I’m glad there are no similar comments here.

People are cultivating their callous nature. Everyone thinks themselves to be a comedian…especially when the pain is applied elsewhere than them.

This poor lost soul.
It’s just heartbreaking that he came to this.
I’m and atheist but one has to think: “There but for the grace of FSM, go I”.

You could always go Joker and say ” All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy.”.

This is so heartbreaking. It pains me to see something like this.

maybe he was making meth in a bottle, someone did say they heard an explosion.
They call it shake and bake and a number of people have blow up in bathrooms.
