The Anti-Brainiac

He wanted to protect “the good people,” a 52-year-old man told police in Lynnwood, Wash. He had been staying at a motel for a month, and slowly became aware that employees of the Days Inn were the “anti-Christ” and “spawns of Satan.” Worse, the unnamed man became convinced that someone was sharing his room: Satan himself. Thus, the man set his room on fire, lighting it in several places to ensure it burned well. Fire sprinklers contained the fire to his room. He was charged with first-degree arson. (RC/Everett Herald) ...Yeah, everyone knows how much Satan hates fire.
