I.. Wow.. That's a bad idea.

Not surprised this happened in Australia, though. It used to be a penal colony for the Brits. Genetically speeaking, there isn't a lot of above average intellect down there.

I couldn't watch the clip because there was a stupid farking commercial "It isn't just YOUR mammogram" and I just can't deal.

Well... to survive the boat trip and the penal colony speaks to some resilience in the genes, no?

I was down in Melbourne last November. I was impressed at the rugged good looks of the men.

I was less impressed that the women also looked like ruggedly handsome men.

Don't worry. I sat through the mammogram and then sat through half the video before I realized I had to turn the volume up to 11 so I could hear the video.

I hate that! They never get the levels right. NEVER. And I hate watching boobies get flattened. Firmly grasped is fine, but machine flattened is another thing.

I blame all the people working to make lighters and gas stations idiot proof. If someone makes something idiot proof, the universe sees it as a challenge and builds a better idiot. You just can't fight everything AND 13.7 billion years of experience.

I love how both the idiot and the gas station attendant missed the GIANT FARKING FIRE EXTINGUISHER RIGHT NEXT TO THE PUMP.

Seriously... Also, if you do manage to start a fire while pumping gas DO NOT REMOVE THE NOZZLE FROM YOUR GAS TANK. Just leave that shiat in there and grab one of the fire extinguishers all gas stations have nearby. All you do if you remove it is spew burning gas all over the farking place when the nozzle comes out.

Australians don't look particularly ugly or attractive to me. However, their accent is farking annoying. It grates on my ears.

Gas attendant should be brought up on charges for turning the pump off. I guess interfering with Darwin isn't a crime - but it should be.

That silly scare still dictates the gas-pumping habits of an entire nation a decade after it was debunked. People got so conditioned over that, they still don't use their cell phones while pumping gas, which means that the few people who still believe it's dangerous think everyone else believes it too. I've never had comments from strangers, but people I'm with still occasionally express dismay at me checking my email while I'm pumping gas, and they have called it to my attention that almost nobody messes with their cell phone while pumping gas. And they're right. I've even seen teenagers patiently pumping gas without looking at their phones. But teenagers as a group are turning the tide. Apparently they are willing to court death to check Twitter.

I wonder if this is a general pattern of human behavior, where old superstitious fears are abandoned not through reason and experiment but through teenagers' utter disregard for their own safety. People enter their twenties, start taking stock of the deaths of people personally connected with them, and they're like, "Okay, apparently heroin's dangerous, motorcycles are dangerous, driving drunk is dangerous, but using a cell phone while pumping gas is okay? Wow, crazy, right? Who would have guessed?"

I'll never forget the day I realized I had to get the fark out of Alabama.

I was pumping gas when a man left the convenience store, ready to enjoy a just purchased pack of delicious snack crackers. He stopped immediately in front of my car, produced a lighter, and lit one end of the package. He watched it thoughtfully as the plastic overwrap caught fire and began to shrink. When the flaming plastic receded past the first few delicious snack crackers in the pack, he blew it out, and proceeded on his way.

I was too stupefied to say anything.

CSB: Willow Springs raceway at the gas pumps. Guy is filling plastic fuel jugs in the bed of a pickup with a bedliner. *click*FOOM!* static spark ignites fuel. The guy drops the nozzle on the ground, jumps in the truck and drives away from the pumps, knocking two 10 gallon fuel jugs out of the back of the truck and onto the ground. HUGE fire.Thankfully, the tire guy was smart and used the extinguisher that sat right next to the pumps to put the fire out. Awesome cloud of black smoke, no injuries.

I knew it was a typo but let it go. The teabaggers probably need to be told as well.

Since Australia is up-side-down the gasoline flowed out of the fill pipe and ignited. It would be OK to try this in the U.S.

He's lucky.
