Everyone who plays the lottery has their own fantasy of what they’d do first if they won.
Two brothers from Wichita, Kan. celebrated their big lottery win by buying meth and weed, which resulted in them accidentally blowing-up their house and getting arrested.

Authorities said the two brothers were celebrating a $75,000 winning lottery ticket with marijuana and methamphetamine. While attempting to refuel one of the lighters to relight their bongs, one of the brothers let the butane escape. Sgt. Bruce Watts of the Wichita Police Department explains the rest:

“The butane vapor reached the pilot light in the furnace, and as you might expect, ka-boom.”

One brother, age 27 AND wearing a lottery T-shirt, was taken to the hospital by his girlfriend for treatment on what turned out to be second-degree burns on his arms, head and chest. The other brother surrendered to officers who sped to the scene with a warrant.

Between hospital bills, legal fees and fines and home repair, the lottery win could cost the brothers thousands. But, you can’t lose if you don’t play.
