The Guy Who Invented the Whac-A-Mole Accidentally Blew Up A Florida Warehouse

Aaron Fechter must be one of history's strangest mechanical geniuses. After inventing the Whac-A-Mole, the timeless game that allows children to beat the hell out of buck-toothed creatures popping out of holes, he rented out a gigantic central Florida warehouse to create robotic, animatronic rock bands for Chuck-E-Cheese and Showbiz Pizza franchises.

Lately, he'd turned his attention to an alternative fuel that supposedly burned cleaner than propane -- but apparently was just as explosive. Fechter's warehouse spectacularly blew up yesterday, causing chaos near downtown Orlando and leaving robots scattered around burning rubble.
