It's just a Darwarning, necessary every now and then to keep people in check.

When I worked in a group home for schizophrenic adults we had a chain-smoking resident who had to be put on oxygen. He kept hiding cigarettes in his room and trying to smoke with the oxygen mask in the middle of the night. Staff were constantly worried and monitoring him to make sure he didn't for this reason.

If she'd been filling her car with petrol at the time she'd find that two bad mistakes don't cancel each other out, or do they?

My mother-in-law did that for ten years, as did her mother before her. Nothing ever happened, to my great astonishment.

She decided to follow in mama's footsteps, eh? I guess seeing her mom having to be on Oxygen didn't reign in her love for the coffin nails...

Only way you're getting an oxygen tank to "explode" is if it overheats and the resulting pressure causes the tank to rupture.

Not that that makes igniting a fuel source next to oxygen any smarter.

NOTHING stops her love for coffin nails. Since no one will give her money for ciggies, or give her any, she scrounges butts out of ash trays and the street. She's been in homes (dementia combined with pure evil) for five years, and hasn't smoked more than one or two a week in all that time, but nothing will stop her. In fact, her inherent fire-hazardness is what kicked her out of nicer assisted living in the first place.

/She also smokes in bed, while tippling and on pain meds and has for the last 37 years now.
//Her and her mother both did this, together, while her mom was on O2.
///Constantly surprised the wife made it out of childhood.

Once upon a time, Charles Darwin was out exploring on the Galapagos Islands, looking at birds or tortoises or something. He had crawled out on a narrow precipice in order to have a better vantage point, when suddenly he slipped. Just as he was about to tumble to his certain demise, a hand shot out and caught his arm, steadying him. He looked back to see a the slow-witted cabin boy from the HMS Beagle smiling at him. Darwin said to the young man, "You have saved my life, lad. Someday, I will be like unto a god, having domain over idiotic deaths. In recompense, neither you nor any of your descendants shall suffer from my terrible gaze."

Clearly your in-laws are among the descendants of the Beagle's cabin boy.

When I was in the hospital in July and then again a few months later (CCU) the nurses would tell me about catching people in the stairwells smoking, often times shortly after a heart attack, or lighting up immediately after leaving the hospital.  Needless to say they were probably repeat customers!

/my last smoke was July 18th

"And lo, for DARWIN did look upon the hudled masses and wept. For before  HIM lay the infirm, the sick, the lame, and the dull of mind. HE cast them from HIS eyes into the black depths of Oblivion, for HE is the master of weeding out the wheat from the chaff."

My Aunt who has COPD and emphysema did this twice. First time she set her face and the bathroom on fire, the second time she set her face and hair on fire. 

Now she's permanently in the hospital and can't leave, one of the reasons is that she can't stop smoking!

You would be surprised at how much this happens. I had a guy try to light one up in the back of my ambulance.

I've been to two fires started by people smoking while on Oxygen

I will never forget the surprised look on one guy's face.   The double trail of soot, like a weird Fu Man Chu, from his nose to his chin.   Luckily no serious injuries for him.

Another guy had to go to hospital for nasal burns.   While there they found advanced lung cancer.   He didn't live a month.

My wife's a nurse, and at least once a month she busts somebody smoking while on oxygen. I'm sure hospitals have redundancies built into their oxygen supply system so that the whole thing won't go up in flames if just one room becomes an inferno, but it's still really really scary.

It's always a helpful family member who brings smokes in for them. Smokes and flowers.

The irony being that they're probably on oxygen because of the smoking.

True, but going on oxygen was the only thing that stopped my mother's smoking. She was hooked, but not stupid.

Hmmm, A product that is highly addictive, make you stink, turn your teeth yellow, gives you morning cough, known to increase chance of cancer and other disease.
But might increase your chance to comingle with the opposite sex and help you cope with life's issue.

Not the perfect idiot test, but pretty darn close.
