Proverbs:

You're near a situation which needs immediate attention but you don't lend a hand.
> You're like a stinkbug that burns itself in the fire.
i.e., you get involved in things that may hurt you.
> You're like a beetle that burns itself by flying into the fire.
You're always getting yourself into trouble.
> Like the blind man of Ngetmel, twisting twine into the fire.
The image is that of a blind elder, warming his frail body beside the fire while twisting strands of fiber into twine against his thigh. Only as he pulls the finished twine away, he pushes it into the flames. The saying may be applied to any utterly pointless activity or dissipation of wealth.
