Smoke 'em if ya got 'em.
About 20 years ago a service Station attendant filled my tank (not Model T) while smoking a cigarette. Someone excused it telling me that a burning cigarette cannot ignite gasoline vapors but that the spark of a lighter was hotter and could produce ignition.
It stills makes me nervous to think about it no matter what! :o
About 10 years ago I knocked the lighter away and snatched the cigarette out of a woman's mouth who was lighting up at the pump. Boy was she mad ! .... screaming and hollering about calling the police. I showed her my badge and suggested we go inside and do just that. She's lucky I didn't break her face.
About 30 years ago I watched a gas station wipe itself off the earth after a couple Canucks down stateside were having a butt as they pumped gas. Both were blown clear by the initial explosion, but their wives were barbequed in the back seat of the car as the entire place went up in fire and explosions.
The world is full of stupid. Proof that Darwin's theory is not stopping the tide. Smoking is such a brilliant hobby to take up in so many ways.
