Dear protesters/recreational rioters


As protest season approaches I thought it would be good to give you some tips on how to stay alive, even through a violent protest.

  1. Tip #1: When using a Molotov cocktail (a.k.a. a “petrol bomb”): There is an incorrect way to light it. Do not place the glass bottle full of petrol between your thighs, use one hand to light the cloth, and use the other hand to answer a phone call.

Best of luck.
