Spacing’s story on how Sir John A. Macdonald set himself ON FIRE.


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]
