Can you be more stupid than to smoke in a garage?

Now is the time to stop smoking! I had an aunt that was on oxygen and she would still be smoking her cigarettes! She'd take a puff of oxygen then a puff of cigarette....its a wonder that she didn't blow herself up.

Wtf are you talking about? Millions of people smoke in garages every year. It's the perfect place to light up.

Um, yea it is. You said it yourself, gas is enclosed in a can. Standing next to one while having a cigar presents no danger at all. Besides, there's nothing to indicate that a "gas can" had anything to do with this fire.

There are any number of flammable items in a standard garage, from paint thinners to gas to sawdust.

Modern gas cans are made to vent. Now, what are they venting?

Yeah, and they're all enclosed in containers which means that unless you're hitting them with a blowtorch, they're not going to ignite.

And sawdust?? Have you ever tried exposing sawdust to an open flame? You might as well try burning ice cubes.

All smokers are pretty stupid based on the simple fact that they smoke. Where they choose to smoke is secondary in establishing their (lack of) intelligence.

Not enough fumes to do anything. You make it sound like modern gas cans are hissing out fumes like a gas stove. Ain't happening.

Like I said, millions of people smoke in garages every year without incident. Nuff said.

Fumes accumulate unless you have good ventilation, and on a hot day, it can vent a pretty good stream of vapor.

Nah. I've got plenty of the old fashioned gas cans that are air tight and if there was a good stream of vapor" being processed from the liquid, they'd have burst.

A garage is a great place to light up.

How about if we just make cigars illegal? Isn't that what you liberals would ultimately like to see?

Burn, you big baby. My only concern is that others might be harmed due to your laziness.
