Flammable Pajamas from Wal Mart

While sleeping in a pair of flannel pajamas that I purchased from my local Wal Mart, I awoke to the smell of smoke coming from under my bed sheet, I suddenly felt my crotch area becoming very hot. I lifted the sheet and blanket and saw that my flannel pajamas were on fire. I jumped out of bed and quickly removed them.
I grabbed my jeans that were on a chair next to the bed and smothered out the fire. I was very shaken and felt lucky that the bed didnít go up in flames.
I spent the rest of the night trying to figure out why my Pjís caught on fire. For many days there were plenty of joking coming from my friends about my little incident but there was no logical answer to why my PJ's ignited.
I was apprehensive about wearing my other pair of flannel pajamas to bed but a few weeks later
I slipped them on and crawled into bed. After turning out the light and was turning over in bed I could see the static electricity coming from my flannel pajamas.
I was surprised to see so much electricity jumping around. It was like a light show down there.
A few days went by and I told a friend about the incident, he told me that the same thing happened to him a couple of years ago. He said that he wore a pair of flannel pajamas to bed one night and as he turned over in bed, static electricity jumped around in his pajamas and at the same time, he farted. He said thatís when the pajamas burst into flames.
He had purchased the pajamas at a Wal Mart.
The material in the flannel pajamas must be highly flammable. They should be banned from being sold or there should be warning label sewn inside the flannel pajamas about farting while wearing them.

Oh ok !! First off it is illegal to sell pjs that are not flame resistant. Second, static electricity will happen if the pjs have nylon in them. And third, static will not cause them to flame up.

Have you even walked across a carpet and then touched metal or another person? And you get shocked? That is static. Ever had a fire happen because of that? I think not. You are a big dreamer.

All joking aside, it happened to me as a child with a blanket. The blanket was over me and when I moved it caused blue sparks, which was really cool. Then it caught fire. I have read about static electrify in your clothes and pumping gas can can cause a fire, too .

Static electricity can be dangerous in certain incidences. Such as filling a gas can while it is sitting in back of a truck. The bed liner of the truck moves as you drive, creating static electricity,
And it can cause a flammable reaction. There have been many stories about this subject matter.
Just a few months ago, there was a news special about a man carrying a plastic gasoline container and as he walked, it rubbed against his pant leg, creating static electricity and the gas exploded.
He was suing the manufacturer for not having a ďfire restrictorĒ inside the neck of the gasoline container. I read some where that the safe way to fill a container of gasoline or any other Combustible liquid is to make sure it is grounded first.

As silly as it may sound, the story about the danger of farting while wearing Flannel pajamas does make sense.
Over the years, there have been reports of people being burnt to a crisp by an unknown cause.
The following news report stands out in my mind. The body of an 80 year old woman was found completely burnt but the rocking chair she was sitting in was untouched by the fire.
They eventually concluded that the death was by combustion. As she rocked in her chair, she created static electricity, possibly from her nylons or panty hose being rubbed against her clothing on the chair.
As we know, the human body creates Methane and/or hydrogen gas from what we eat and from the air we swallow.
However, both are flammable gases.(Hydrogen was used in the ill fated Hindenburg).
While the poor woman rocked, she expelled some gas and it initiated combustion by the static electricity.

I would say "DO NOT JERK OFF WHILE FARTING IN THESE PAJAMAS" should be the required warning label........I can only imagine the pictorial warning image on the label. And it would have to be written/printed in every known language on the planet, thereby leaving other-worldly "aliens" to jerk off freely, causing their own deaths! Then the lawsuits would come.......

Someone call my lawyer!

And you are comparing gasoline to thisstory. Gasoline is flammable after all. This story about the pjs is pure fiction. Ask any fireman. Thats what I did. And my fireman husband laughed his butt off.

I did some research regarding the theory of the dangers of static electricity and have discovered that the combination of static electricity and methane gas can actually create an explosion.
My research led me to even more facts that are interesting but first I would like to say that my intentions are not to be gross or offend anyone.
But have you ever asked why menís cotton under wear usually end up having a torn hole in the seat?
Explosions play an important part of the cause but when methane gas is expelled without the mixture of static electricity it can also break down the structure of the under wear.
Therefore, the material becoming weak in that particular spot and eventually easily ripped.
I say cotton under wear because other materials resist.
Although, it is a proven fact that women release more methane gas than men do.
Holes are not usually found in womenís under wear in that location, unless of course they are made from cotton.

Yesterday, I was at a gas station pumping gas into my truck and withing a few seconds flames burst out,and onto my cloths. it felt like my face was on fire, my eye brows were burnt off. I was completely on fire, I dropped the gasoline nozzel and a guy came over and sprayed me with a fire retardant.
The fire department arrived and after their investigation, they decided the fire explosion was
caused by my flannel sweat pants and that produced static electricity during the time I was pumping gas.

First off flannel is cotton. That won't produce static. Second, you are one of those people that wear flannel pants around town. FLANNEL PANTS ARE CONSIDERED PAJAMAS NOT CLOTHING TO BE WORN OUT IN PUBLIC.
oH AND BY THE WAY, WHAT GAS STATION WERE YOU AT?

Before I decided to google this topic. I personally had experience in this event. First I would like to say my apartment has a lot of static electricity. Everything I touch seems to shock me. Moving on. I was on my way to bed and turn off the lights, I decided to fart on my dogs face and when my dog sniffed my butt, her nose shocked my butt and ignited the gas. A short burst of a blue flame was present. The proof is on YouTube that you can light farts on fire with a lighter. I'm telling you static electricity is capable of lighting farts on fire. That's all.

I had this happen last night. I was cold ( had the flu) and sleep with my flannel PJ's on & also my housecoat. My dogs woke me up because my housecoat was on fire! I took it off & obviously was terrified. Tried to go back to bed with my PJ's & the same thing. The PJ's were sparking like crazy! This is OUTRAGIOUS!!
