    I have not but I had a friend who did. She put water on to boil for
    spaghetti. Mind you she had been drinking. And knowing her it was quite a
    bit! She then forgot that she had put the water on to boil and fell asleep.
    This was back in the days before smoke detectors were common. She didn't
    have one. The fire department had a hard time waking her. The pot had
    boiled dry and there was smoke billowing out of her apartment.

    Another friend didn't fall asleep but boiled countless pots dry in boiling
    water for tea. She had a whistling tea kettle but it too boiled dry.
    Apparently it didn't whistle loudly enough for her to hear. I bought her an
    electric kettle. The kind that shuts itself off after it boils. I have one
    and I love it! She loves hers too.

    I had that happen about 15 years ago. Though wasn't drinking, it was late
    at night and wanted some spaghetti, and made the mistake of lying down on
    the couch.. Heard knocking on my door from downstairs neighbor-- then
    sirens in the distance. Thought "oh **** they better not be coming here."
    Then the sirens got louder and louder. I hurried and turned the pot off,
    but there was a fair amount of smoke... Next thing I know, there are 10
    firemen wandering the apartment looking for a fire. I apologized and one of
    them said "it happens, just glad there's no fire". (I got the impression it
    happens a fair amount on their night calls.)... Tried to salvage the pot
    but it was a goner and threw it in the dumpster. That apartment stank for
    days

    When I was growing up, my older brother did it boiling hot dogs... I
    thought he was so stupid.

    Sqwertz has an obsession. Is he an accredited member of the troll police?
    Or just a gated community member of a troll security civilian force?

    I figured that. Everybody already knows you're a kook, and we blame
    that on your IQ and gullibility - not a good combo.

    The firemen should have beaten you and thrown you out the window so they
    would have someone to rescue, and wouldn't have to chalk up the call to time
    wasted on some drunken wanker.

    Trolls are an important part of the Internet ecosystem. Without them,
    self-righteous arrogant blowhards would continuously post screeds and rants
    unchecked, and use up all the remaining bytes on the Internet... As a
    woodland that goes too long without a fire, then one day has one and is
    decimated; trolls start controlled local flame wars that cull some of the
    chaff out, and allow for new growth.
