Fiend reader, Casey, sent me these images of second degree burns that he received when his ghillie suit went up in flames. Casey writes:
To anyone who might see these, if they have a ghillie suit, or know someone who does, for hunting, airsoft, paintball or whatever, treat it regularly with fire retardant and don’t go near smokers.
On another note though, the doc in the emergency room actually heaved when they undid the bandages and got a look at these the day after I had burned them, so I succeeded in grossing out an emergency room doctor. After that the local hospital asked if they could have copies of the pics for teaching purposes as these were “the best second degree burns they had ever seen.”
