Remember Charlie was the name of that video. Unreal agony, burns have got to be the worst there is.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.
There's a huge lack of common sense in our culture today. Honestly, they should call it uncommon sense now instead of common sense, because its not so common anymore.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.
One gallon of gasoline vaporized is equivalent too 180 pds of TNT when ignited learned that in Fire SchoolAnd let's put 35 gallons of extremely flammable liquid in an SUV.
As a survivor of 3rd degree burns, this makes me shudder.
1 gallon is the equivalent energy in 14 sticks of dynamite. They have at least 35 gallons.
Why would they need that much gas?
