You are incorrect. It is combustible if in use or otherwise. It is gauged into the pressure valve access. Please don't allow me to assist you in looking any more stupid than you already appear, John.
Let me correct you all on something. O2 is an expedite. It does not burn. It does however makes everything else burn faster and stronger.

Worrisome? What's worrisome is that people like you expect others to abuse crap that is going to make them sick just to prove a point. A childish attitude if there ever was one. Like cutting off your nose to spite your face? Proving what? Stupidity? Drink all the soda you like, smoke all the butts you need to but don't expect everyone else to go along with your ignorance and childish refusal to take responsibility for one's health. You're starting to sound like a blithering idiot.
Harmful Effects of Soft Drinks (Soda)
Weight Gain & Obesity: Drinking a single 330 ml can a day of sugary drinks translates to more than 1 pound (0.45 kg) of weight gain every month. The relationship between soft drink consumption and body weight is so strong that researchers calculate that for each additional sugar-sweetened soft drink consumed, the risk of obesity increases 1.6 times.
Sodas affect Kidneys: A three year study of over 1,000 men with a history of kidney stones showed that there was a clear-cut difference in the group's experiences, with much less renal colic in the men who had avoided soft drinks. Soft drinks acidified with phosphoric acid were the worst offenders.
Dental Decay: A large number of soft drinks are acidic and some may have a pH of 3 or even lower. The acidity can dissolve the mineral content of the enamel, making the teeth weaker, more sensitive, and more susceptible to decay.
Sodas affect Liver: According to a new Israeli medical study, drinking soft drinks can cause damage to your liver. Scientists from Israel found that people who drank a litre of fizzy drinks were five times more likely to develop fatty liver disease. Even drinking a couple of cans of fizzy drinks a day raised the risk of liver damage in addition to causing diabetes and heart damage.
Can lead to Alzheimer: Soft drinks are extremely acidic, so much so that they can eat through the liner of an aluminum can and leach aluminum from the can if it sits on the shelf too long.
Cause Sugar Crash: The high amounts of sugar in soft drinks cause your pancreas to produce an abundance of insulin, which leads to a "sugar crash". The "sugar crash" is evidenced by lethargy, loss of interest in work tasks and even sleepiness. Chronic elevation and depletion of sugar and insulin can lead to diabetes and other imbalance related diseases. This is particularly disruptive to growing children which can lead to life-long health problems.
Drops Potassium level in blood: It was found that people who drank 2 to 9 liters of cola a day experienced severe fatigue, appetite loss and also persistent vomiting at times. This is mainly due to a condition known as hypokalemia where there is a drop in the level of potassium in the blood.
Weakened Bones and Risk of Osteoporosis: Frequent consumption of soft drinks may also increase the risk of osteoporosis, especially in people who drink soft drinks instead of calcium-rich milk. High soda consumption in children poses a significant risk factor for impaired calcification of growing bones.
No Nutritional Value: Unless fortified, soft drinks contain little to no vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, or other essential nutrients. Soft drinks may also displace other healthier choices in people's diets, such as water, milk, and fruit juice.
Increased Blood Pressure: Experts have reasons to believe that over consumption of fructose (a form of sugar found in sweetened soft drinks) leads to an increase in blood pressure.
Is that crap allowable on SNAP programs? It shouldn't be.
Now put down the babas and do something constructive for a change.

I absolutely appreciate your argument. When I quit smoking years ago, I couldn't stand to be around cigarette smoke and wondered why I or anyone ever took up the habit.
But do you even realize the profundity of what you posted?
"We, the employees, were not allowed to smoke anywhere near the campus. If we were witnessed smoking while on duty, we were subject to termination. If a coworker suspected someone of smoking, they were encouraged to turn the offender in."
This doesn't sound eerily like Orwell's "Big Brother" to you?
"Not allowed"..."witnesse d smoking"..."subject to termination"..."turn the offender in".
It sure does to me.
Ah never could understand why people just couldn't seem to find the cigarettes OUT here cans....with in the two feet of where they'd flip their butts to the ground at.

Musta bean a lot of demercrats smoking in herd packs LOL .

<quoted text>Deadly chemicals such as freon and R12 escaping from refrigeration devices is the number one cause of ozone depletion. Ozone depletion along with America's addiction to oil are the top two causes of global warming. And America's addiction to guns is the number one cause of senseless murders. If President Obama would restrict firearms solely to the military and members of well armed militias, aka state and local law enforcement, as the Constitution clearly states, health care costs could be reduced substantially. Maybe the restrictions can be included in President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. It's time America got rid of all these guns, all 310 million of them, one for every man, woman and child in America.

Fox's coverage echoed a Daily Caller article published Tuesday. The Daily Caller has since updated its reporting, removing all references to Soros in its article and appending a correction saying that he "does not appear connected" to the protests.
