Wait, so they were both pretending to be Anakin?
Saw this posted on Newsarama, and I thought you guys/gals would get a kick out of it.
Jedi fans petrol inferno

TWO Star Wars fans suffered horrific burns in a mock battle with home-made
lightsabers filled with PETROL.
Shelley Mandiville, 17, and Mark Webb, 20, made the weapons with fluorescent light tubes.
They filled them with fuel and washing-up liquid to act out a Jedi Knight fight scene from new movie Revenge Of The Sith.
They lit the liquid to illuminate the makeshift toys.
But it exploded - covering them both in the burning mixture. Firefighters discovered Shelly and Mark with serious burns after being called to woodland near Hemel Hempstead, Herts, on Sunday
Police were studying a video camera found at the scene. It was thought that a third person was taping the "duel" - who fled in terror when the disaster happened.
A local who visited the scene said: "You could see two fluorescent light tubes on the ground next to a badly burned area of ground.
"Police said the plan was probably to film what happened and submit it to one of these Jackass-style TV shows or put it on the internet."
Police were waiting to interview Shelley and Mark, who were both in a critical condition in hospital last night.
Police finally caught up with the 34 year old member of the trilogy who was taping the duel. When asked why he fled the scene and left his fellow Jedi laying injuried on the field of battle his only comment was, "I had to get home, mommy gets mad when I'm out past 7."
It's a good thing they're not Reservior Dog fans.. re-enacting that torture scene might have sounded like a cool idea..

At what point did this NOT sound like a bad idea?
