I'd try it, but I don't want to make a complete ash of myself...

Idiot! The smoking of cigarettes has been linked to cancer and other health issues. He could eventually kill himself!

You know he did it before, but realized the collar wasn't popped and had to start filming all over again.

I think this guy was trying to become a member of the Blue Flamer Club, and got "asshole" confused with "gas hole"...

Back in the day when vehicle fuel tanks were exposed and could be dented in by road debris and such, the mechanics would fill the tank all the way up the neck, then braze pull rods to the tank for pulling the dent out. The fuel acted as a sink to prevent burnthrough. As they pulled the dent, they kept adding fuel so a vapor-filled cavity didn't form in the tank. The other option (which was the proper method) was to remove the tank and fill it completely full of water before pulling the dent. The first way was faster.

Reminds me of my neighbor's boyfriend who was working on his pickup truck years ago.  He wanted to "drain the gas tank"... by drilling a hole in the underside.

Of course it sparked, lit the gasoline, and the truck went up in flames.  It would have been more fun to watch if my uncle's car wasn't so close that his paint job was completely ruined on one side.  Oh well.  Stupid people do stupid things.

The first way was completely safe as well. I know many welders who've welded cracks in completely filled tanks.

He should run for Congress. That's exactly the mentality they like up there ...

Right. He's an idiot for understanding how fire works, and not assuming everything on TV depicts reality.

Must be a common theme.

My Bonnie looked into her gas tank.

The hight of its contents to see.

She lit a match to aid her,

Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.
