GRANTS PASS, Ore. - To prove his love, a 38-year-old man set himself on fire before getting down on one knee and asking his girlfriend to marry him.

About 100 people gathered to watch Todd Grannis perform the flaming stunt on Monday, which involved wearing a cape soaked in gasoline.

Grannis climbed up a 10-foot scaffold, was set on fire and then plunged into a swimming pool, dousing the blaze. Emerging unscathed, he got down on one knee and proposed, as a friend standing nearby slipped him the engagement ring. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Do you think that this proposal, which involved the man setting himself on fire, is more romantic, or ridiculous?

Dont leave us all in suspence. Did she say yes?

I think it is kind of romantic in a scary psychotic kind of way.

^I agree. Like a don't-leave-me-or-i'll-stalk-you-and-kil l-myself kind of romantic.

If he is a professional stunt man (not sure b/c I couldn't access the story thru the link), then I could see it not being so bizarre.

But if he is just some weirdo amateur, then he is dumb for setting himself ablaze!

So ridiculous

I guess it could be romantic in certain ways.

That's so dumb
15 yrs ago - Wednesday 7/27/05 - 10:14:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's way more ridiculous than anything.

Repulsive. I'm not easily impressed, but that is deperation on his part.

That's funny!

I'm just curious as to where the object of Todd's affection was while he was getting doused in petrol and climbing the scaffold? Was she standing by watching and thinking 'what the hell?'
Perhaps her friends had her blindfolded only to reveal her fiance as he fell in flames from the sky and she thought "Oh My God!". Or was this a turn on for her?

Strange people.

I analyze this situation as "I love you so much that I lit myself aflame, therefore this is my way of manipulating you into a marriage of lies and unfulfilled words"

No, i plan on swallowing a large amount of iron and being suspended in by a large magnet and proposing in mid air.

...the hell?

If my boyfriend did that I would be pissed at him for doing something so stupid and dangerous. I think it's totally bizarre what people will do in the name of love...

If my bf did anything like that to propose, or proposed in public at all, even without the fireworks, I'd walk away and never look back.
