But Warlock, you're forgetting about Jethro's cousin, Elly Mae. You can put up with Jethro so we can get her can't you?

I'm just thankful that some of the stupid, dumb things I have done in my life in a moment of inattention, distraction, ignorance, or just plain stupidity haven't resulted in such a catastrophy. ...the embarrassment to me is horrible enough and most people aren't reading about it all over the world...and others affected so adversely.

Um, I hate to be the one to break it to you guys, but heating oil is not flammable until it is sprayed into the firebox...

You can put out a lit match in #2 diesel...real hard to get the liquid to ignite. Little change of unconcentrated vapor exploding.


Still, that delivery was a dumbass mistake.
