Default Burned on Hot Coals? WTF?

Well duh. What a bunch of idiots.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fire officials said 21 people at an event hosted by motivational speaker Tony Robbins suffered burns while walking across hot coals and three of the injured were treated at hospitals.

The injuries took place during the first day Thursday of a four-day event at the San Jose Convention Center hosted by Robbins called "Unleash the Power Within." Most of those hurt had second and third degree burns, said San Jose Fire Department Capt. Reggie Williams.

Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to "understand that there is absolutely nothing you can't overcome," according to the motivational speaker's website

Sometimes hospitals need to butt out, they've been interfering with natural selection for far too long.

I guess with more practice they get it down with little damage to there prosthetic feet. What a bunch of rejects from the septic tank gene pool.

That's what they deserve for listening to that jackass Robbins.......by definition, people that go to those BS seminars are brain damaged tools.

I'd like to see Tony boy lay down for a few minutes in those coals and see how well he overcomes it.

The trick is to walk AROUND the bed of hot coals.

'Course my guru was my Dad.

Those people were just frustrated with their cable TV.

Don't wake up in a hospital with burnt feet, get DIRECTV.

Is it just me, but if you were going to sell/show that this line of bull$hit really works - wouldn't you do it on the 4th or last day? The first day shows they "can" walk on hot coals without the Robbins idiot.
