    (because of close personal experience, people lighting themselves on fire is, for me, the most troubling thing that exists)

    that's not a damn popsicle in his hand, is it?

      From +972:

      Those present on the scene succeeded in extinguishing the fire before ambulances arrived and rushed him to nearby Ichilov Hospital. He was photographed eating a popsicle before being whisked away, though later reports described his condition as serious.

        is here, because you can see the curious expression on his face as he looks at what he had done to his fingers.

        As a guess, it's alcohol or something else cool burning, not gasoline. And that he was planning to have that nice cool popsicle ready for after he was put out.

        Even with some showmanship about it, I'm surprised he can even hold it.
