MacdonaldOnFire-0-3

Ahhhh yes, the story of Sir John A. Macdonald, significant not necessarily because he was our first Canadian Prime Minister.  He was an asshole to a lot of people, but at least he was once such an alcoholic he once set himself ON FIRE.  Having only been saved from death by the most Canadian thing ever, a thick flannel shirt.  Adam Bunch from Spacing magazine has the full story.  [via Spacing]
