    Sometimes people do stupid, dangerous or even criminal things for no apparent reason. It’s possible that yet another such baseless act, motivated by the desire for destruction, has been filmed in the state of New York, where a man attempted to ignite a gas station.

    The video shows a man who filling his can of gas, but suddenly starts to spray gasoline all around the can, eventually throwing a burning piece of paper on it and nearly setting himself on fire in the process. According to police, who are searching for the suspect, he arrived at the station driving a blue minivan.
