    DALLAS — Fire officials say more than 30 people attending a Tony Robbins event in Dallas have been treated for burns after the motivational speaker encouraged them to walk on hot coals.
    Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night and that emergency personnel treated the others at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities.
    The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a Robbins seminar called “Unleash the Power Within.”
    The event continues through Sunday.

    After you watched 29 people burn themselves, would you be the 30th asshole to try it?

    Even though these two are fictional characters, they are from Texas.

    I believe it is a fair representation of the general low wattage IQ's of most Texans

    Hey hey hey, don't put us New Jerseyians in the same boat as Texans and Floridians. The hottest thing I ever walk on is the sand down the shore in the summer.

    I swear there was an episode of Penn and Teller's bullshit where they said the coals were easy because the bottom of your feet aren't as sensitive combined with moving fast the walk is easy.

    Were the Texans standing on the coals.
