It's news stories like this that make me wish this show was still around! (even if he doesn't kick the bucket)

I'm going to need a recreation of the event done in Garry's Mod.

I farken love smoking. I wish people would stop trying to regulate a hobby that doesn't affect them. Kind of like anti-abortion folks and anti-gun people, they feel a huge need to make sure that others can't go about their business because of something they fear and don't understand.

True story, bro: My wife woke me up this morning because she could smell propane in the porch and garage. I went out back and could smell a strong propane smell. It was strongest over by the propane tank, and I could hear it hissing it a little bit. I stopped by the place that sells us our propane on my way to work and asked them to go check it out. I haven't heard anything back from them yet, so I don't know if my tank was leaking or what. Goddamn propane went from $1.75 to over $6 in just a few days time recently, so that farker better not be leaking. I don't give a shiat if the house blows up - it's insured, and nobody is home. I just can't afford to vent that expensive crap into the atmosphere.

Yeah it does affect non-smokers. Even if you aren't smoking at the time YOU farkING STINK! Add to that the fact that YOUR sense of smell is lessened by being a smoker and you don't even realize how bad you smell.

Being an ex smoker (smoked for 16 years) smelling second hand smoke or smelling someone who has just had a smoke makes me want to go buy a pack and start smoking again. it's rough.

Ah, natural gas.  Clean, safe, reliable, and cheap...and, once in a while, your house assplodes.

We should make body odor illegal. Also wearing what is called "Persian cab driver" levels of perfume or cologne. But I digress, your poor self control is the perfect reason to regulate tobacco use. Thanks for lifting the veil of ignorance from my eyes, friend.

This could be the next game show - "Who wants to be a gas explosion millionaire"?

Audience gets to guess when the next family home blows-up.

Will Becky be home on a conference call with work? Will Herb be smart enough alert the family or will he just take the money and start over.... tune in next Friday for "Who wants to be a gas explosion millionaire"?

So you just looked at the leaking tank and walked away?  Didn't check the valve?

There is no way you are paying $6 a gallon.  If you are actually paying that much.... I am going to go out and buy a propane truck right now and start delivering to your neighborhood.

/$2.07 last week in CT
//$3.77 is the highest I've heard quoted in CT

Well, there's one thing that smokers can claim smoking is good for. Protecting us non-smokers from gas leaks. Well, all of us who are out of range of the explosion and ensuing fires, at least. Canaries in a coal mine, so to speak.

Mind you, it is still proof that smoking kills, injures and destroys property..

FTA:  "Gilbert Fire said there is no natural gas hookup in the house, but the investigation led them to the leak. At this point, they believe paint fumes in the garage are to blame for the explosion."

So, it wasn't the gas leak that sent this man to the burn unit.  Weird coincidence.

WTF am I going to do about it if the valve on the tank is leaking? I checked the connections, didn't find the problem, and turned it over to someone who actually deals with propane tanks for a living. Turns out the regulator had a slight leak. Had he not been available to go check it right away, I would have turned off the tank until he could get there, but he was 4 blocks away and just getting to work and said he would be right over.

I quit smoking a few months ago, and I still think tobacco is the whipping boy for every whining little biatch to hide their agenda behind. I smell the smokers outside my work every time I leave or enter, and it doesn't bother me at all. If I wanted a cigarette, I'd light a farking cigarette, but I don't because *I quit*. <sucking on ecig like a madman as I write this...>

Once they convince everyone to quit using tobacco by raising taxes and forcing everyone to stand in the cold 100' from the building and all the other nanny-state bullshiat, the taxes will dry up, and it will be fatasses they come after next in an effort to keep the money flowing, while they build yet another fossil fuel power plant in your backyard.

You've been warned repeatedly, America. Stop pissing away your little freedoms every time some farktard with an agenda convinces you it is in your best interest.

Nothing, but just check that the valve is fully closed.  It's not a regulator, by the way.  But glad it didn't get all explody on you.

That's a pretty casual attitude, I must say. I'd have been a little more freaked out. There's a lot of destructive force in one of them thar tanks.

The dangers of smoking are well known, so if he didn't want to get blown the fark up then he should not have smoked.

The regulator is attached to the valve to reduce the pressure coming out of the tank. It was the regulator that was leaking, not the valve.
