"Ill" seems like such an odd word to describe the after effects of having eaten a fireball.

No, when we do stuff like this we apply our knowledge of chemistry.

Gasoline = Redneck fire accelerant.

Failure to use Weeners tag. 30 yard penalty, and loss of down.

Seems like England is vying to get their own tag. Florida must up their stupid actvity.

How U.S. troops cooked during the desert campaign in WWII, according to E. Pyle.

"Soldiers cooked thier own meals when on the move. They made a fire in one of two ways, each involving the use of gasoline: For a short fire they duge a hole about the size of a man's hand, poured gasoline into it, sprinkled sand over the gasoline, and then threw in a match. The sand kept the gas from burning too quickly. On a smal fire like that they could heat a canteen or cup of coffee. For a bigger fire, they filled a small can with gasoline and buried it even with the surface of the ground. They piled rocks around to set their cooking utensils on, and then tossed a match at the gas."

If you need any kind of petroleum product to build a charcoal fire, you are hopeless and should immediately be stripped of your tongs and spatula.
2006-06-11 01:45:50 PM  
I recommend propane and propane accessories.
2006-06-11 02:00:26 PM  
charcoal all the way.

Though I'm a dedicated farker, I've missed something. Someone please tell me what the PSA tag stands for.

Waiting anxiously......

Public service announcement. I just found out a week ago, and I've been here for a year now.

There are many camp stoves designed to run on multiple fuels, including gasoline. While not generally the preferred fuel (white gas or propane both are better, IMO), it will do quite well in a pinch.
