Those private booths probably need frequent "cleaning", perhaps some form of alcohol cleaner is used often- gasses build up, patron goes to light whatever it is he may have been smoking, POOF!
Witness Steve Rintoul, who manages the adult shop, said Thursday that the customer, who is reportedly not a regular patron of the shop, had been watching a movie at the back of the store when he ran out of the viewing booth screaming and on fire. The store experienced "zero damage" from the fire, said Rintoul, who suspected the man may have lit himself on fire while doing drugs. "I would describe it as a Richard Pryor sort of incident," he said. The victim was described as an ordinary, "working class, blue-collar type of guy" -- far different from the rickety Sixth and Mission crowd. Witnesses who saw the victim ablaze reportedly "sat there and did nothing."
Thanks for the update. I have a couple of friends who live in the Mission and they couldn't tell me anything, one didn't hear about it. I know that area quite well, many strange things go on there, would never live in what they call "The Mission". Very funny Jackflap, now why would you want to know what he was watching, never mind don't answer that.
Some think this is a divine message from the heavens. Pastor Huang has been trying to shut down this "den of iniquity" for seven years, but that has not stopped some people, but this message from above may have a stronger effect than Huang's sermons. While everyone hopes the person recovers from the strange incident, police are investigating although they admit they have no clues. This may give one pause before going into the Golden Gate Adult Superstore, or any porn shop.
