I bet she fires up a Marlboro on the way home
Static electricity, a door light switch, ignition switch, Marlboro, car wreck. Omg, the possibilities are endless.
I spent 3 months in that torture chamber of painful bandage changes, infections, massive drug doses.
It just creeps me out. Wow!
That was 51 years ago, still haunts me.

5-8 years ago I would have assumed you were being sarcastic... now I'm assuming you mean it literally. I have seen too many gas station employees smoking around pumps lately. We've lost our minds as a country and can't blame anyone but our selves for many of our problems.

Read about the Jap aircraft carrier Taiho, biggest Jap carrier in WWII. Single torpedo hit ruptured an avgas tank, fumes spread thru vessel then were set off and vessel blew apart like tin can despite belt and flight deck armor and went to bottom taking 1,650 souls.

Imagine,35 gallons of burning gasoline in SUV.

Then, upon successful mission to replenish gasoline stocks that might be stored in garage attached to house, 35 or more gallons of gasoline fumes spread thru house & basement to be set off. BOOM!

Bob, first off, I am glad you are still with us.

When I started with the mining company I work for, I had to go to a four day MSHA training session for new employees of mining companies. It's all about SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY !! There was one video I vividly remember. It was by a guy that was in a terrible accident in a refinery in New Jersey. He goes into great detail describing the accident, and more importantly the months of agonizing rehab he went through.

The bitch of it all was, he wasn't even supposed to be working that shift. He was supposed to already be on vacation, but volunteered to pick up one more shift to cover for a no-show, figuring it wouldn't hurt to make a little extra scratch for his vacation.

The local news was reporting that people "were not to put gas in plastic bags".
There's your sign!
The pipeline is now operational. So supply should start getting to the pumps.

Thanks! Right leg got nailed, still good, but scars for life to remind me.
