Oddly enough indeedYahoo! News - Man Attacks Stain in Trousers...Destroys Apartment
A Russian man may wish he had stuck with having dirty trousers after an imaginative attempt to purge a stubborn paint stain on them destroyed his apartment.
The unnamed Muscovite added a liter of petrol to his washing machine to help dissolve the stain, Itar-Tass news agency reported Monday, but the ensuing explosion wrecked his kitchen and demolished two internal walls.
Moscow police would only confirm that there has been an explosion in an apartment, and not the cause.
