I've done this a ton of times, I used to do it to make my History coursework more interesting, but you have to get a sponge or a cloth and wet the paper right along where you want to fire to stop... If his brother just set it on fire and hoped for the best then he's a moron.

In this sense, it's bridges. As in, if you're an island and your connections to other islands are bridges, burning them is easier than building them.

That said I Googled. There is a saying in some places of "That really burns my britches", an old word for trousers. Basically means "That really pisses me off". It's more than possible that in some areas, the local dialect has combined the two to mean both or either as often happens with old sayings. :)

FINALLY a version that MAKES SENSE! Don't get me wrong, I love that song, but I never understood what Adele meant by "And I set fire to the rain, watch it pour as I touch your face".

Little do we know that OP's teacher is the mother of the girl who almost set fire to their house while trying to take artsy Instagram photos.

Needless to say, she probably feels fire and art don't mix.


My dog ate a massive semester long assignment once. I went outside for 1 min to collect the mail, came back and it was in shreds. As I don't usually do my homework the teacher though I didn't do it and got my parents into school and in the school assembly made me tell the school what my excuse was, until my parents arrived at the assembly and told them the truth. Lol, was the funniest day of my life.

51- You got lucky that your parents saw! If they hadn't, the funniest day of your life could have been the most unfair and humiliating. Or worse, you could have been forced to do your homework. *DUN DUN DUN*

Yeah, I can relate to #51. I had recently gotten a new dog (whom is behaved now), she never saw paper before and ripped up my homework which feel to the floor overnight. I looked everywhere for it and then recognized some of the subject matter on these torn particles. I tried explaining to my teacher but they refused to believe me and said they couldn't believe I'd ever use such a childish excuse...I've never gotten an "F" before until that day. Luckily, I asked if there was any alternate assignments I could do to make up for it. He knew me to be a good student and decided to give me a paper to write; I was quite greatful.
