Nobody is sure why a Los Angeles man set himself on fire Tuesday night, but one thing's for certain: he's in a lot of pain. Members of the LAPD saw the human torch in the Glassel Park neighborhood and did their best to extinguish him. Fire and paramedic units were called for help, and the man was taken to the hospital where he's in critical condition.

Police don't think he lived in the neighborhood where he decided to set himself ablaze, and are generally confused as to why he even did it. Maybe he was bored, maybe he was wasted, but he's regretting it all right now.
