http://bangordailynews.com/2011/11/17/news/bangor/explosion-reported-at-lagrange-convenience-store/ ----- Hmmm . . . please if I am ever on fire do not throw 12 ounces of scalding hot coffee at my face. If for some reason I have not stopped, dropped to the ground and begun rolling around on the ground to extinguish the fire . . . then by all means push me on to the ground and start rolling me around as I'm pretty sure that would be more effective at putting out the fire than a small cup of scalding, hot coffee. Uh . . . just a dumb firefighter . . . guess I never realized that diesel is "probably worse than gasoline" . . . seems to me I have seen and heard of far more stories of folks getting in trouble lighting fires with gasoline due to its lower flash point than diesel . . . but then again . . . what do I know? And another Huh . . . diesel is safe as long as the fumes don't come into contact with a flame or ignition source . . . couldn't you pretty much say that about any flammable or combustible fuel? I mean gasoline is also safe . . . as long as you don't put a match into a gas can. The guy is 71 and cannot afford health care . . . this I understand . . . but not getting health insurance because we're "pretty healthy" . . . I dunno . . . I think when anyone is getting up there in age it's probably a good idea to have some sort of coverage even if you are healthy . . . heck, it's probably a good idea to have health insurance when you're 21 even . . . __it happens. And the wife is holding partially burned lottery tickets . . . and wondering if a) the tickets are winners and b) if they are winners if she could redeem them . . . I guess I would be thinking more about my spouse and his health at that point.
