Man on Fire

No, really, an Armenian man lit himself on fire...to make a point...I guess... From RFE/RL:
A man has immolated himself in front of the Armenian government building in Yerevan. Djivan Hakopian made antigovernment statements before dousing his body in gasoline and lighting himself on fire on Yerevan's Square of the Republic today. Doctors say Hakopian, 44, is in critical condition. His respiratory system was damaged and he reportedly suffered third-degree burns on 80 percent of his body. Armenian government officials said Hakopian had not filed any formal complaints before the incident.
