Kids will be kids?

Five thought it was OK to douse another with alcohol and set him on fire. I'm a bit surprised the damage was so bad since alcohol burns above the liquid usually. I remember in high school people putting on a finger, then lighting and no harm done. Must be because of the clothing combined with the alcohol that made the damage so much worse. If he needs skin grafts, they know 5 others they can take them from.

According to court records, the father of the Jarvis children also faced trouble over setting a fire decades ago. Archived Broward court records show that back in 1984 when Denver Colorado Jarvis Sr. was 20, he ignited and threw a Molotov cocktail into a neighbor's Pompano Beach yard.

He eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years of probation. A formal felony conviction was withheld from his criminal record

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
