A couple of years ago, a man murdered his wife.  The body lay on the kitchen 
floor, so he decided to burn down the house and thus confuse HM Fuzz.  He 
poured about a gallon of petrol over the body and the floor, and lit a match.

The resulting explosion demolished the house.  He was propelled through a 9" 
brick wall, across the yard outside, and embedded in the house opposite. 

Saved a lot of money on a trial.

Beware of the stuff.  Clean up and/or wait before trying anything.
