I used to work at the company that made the ethanol, and there were times we had fires and a massive explosion. There were times it got very scary but we never had a problem loading or shipping Ethanol but things happen

Ethanol sound like it be dangerous. I once had a train pulled on me an I's ended up with gonorrhea and herpes plus a baby wit no father. Obvoiusly trains be dangerous and can blow up witout warnin. This can be hard to swallow over an over buts you do it.
