He died doing what he loved

That we need to be “urged” to tell our children not to suck gas bottles is a clear sign that society and the future is truly fucked, regardless of how many trees we plant. auspol

Was he a vegan?

Really appreciate how this article lists other things to inhale.🙄 Such responsible journalism.

Sucked on a gas bottle. FFS. Funny that we are worried about the future climate of the planet. I’m worried about the morons on the planet.

Yep. Don’t do a Paddy.


Subterranean structural inflation of planet. SHOULD NOT BE EXTRACTED. End of Story. It's highly poisonous,and if released prior to a separation process, that removes DEADLY component. WTF do companies think planets substructure is? I demand entire industry is closed

That`s a first but probably because balloons have been banned🤦‍♂️

enough of them do it, a sort of culling of the species to allow others to live... in limited space on earth

Shut down all BBQ galore stores immediately.

These are the people Greens want voting.

Probably a good thing future generations won't have those genes.

Well, that's it. What's good for 1 ( vaping ) is good for all. We MUST ban BBQ's before all our kids die!!

It's a pity that people think this is a chance to make a joke. Just realise that behind your funny quip is a family minus one son. The only solution to this sort of stuff: Legalise safe(r) drugs. No-ones died from smoking a spliff.

Darwin award!! 🏆

What did he think would happen? 🤦

Natural selection

I knew a kid and HS that huffed gasoline He killed his Dad and ate him

This is outrageous! Why hasn't ScoMo implemented a GasBottleEmergency?


Kids these days really need to learn the dangers of Jenkem.

I identify as a BBQ.

Darwin award nominee.
