0002958: burn injuries do the opposite of what they should
in real life burns are hard to heal and prone to infection; burn victims face long hospital stays and complications. the only good thing about being attacked by something that is very hot is that any wounds will probably be cauterized.

in dwarf fortress a burn causes a wound that bleeds heavily. but, if the dwarf doesn't die from blood loss, he will heal very quickly.

Frostbite does the same... being cold makes your adventurer bleed to death extremely quickly.
