I wonder how the fire department addresses a gas explosion? Do they have a valve somewhere to turn it off? I don't see how they can get close enough to pour chemicals on it.

LOL at Malto and Marko. I had a roommate that tried that once. Methane IS flammable.

-----------------------------------------------------The only way to put it out is to turn off the gas. Yes there are valves to section of an area for this type of thing and repairs. Don't know if the gas company shares that info with the FD. I would think they would.

Years ago I got out of work at a pizza place I worked at. A gas main had sprung a leak about a half a block away. As I drove out of work, the cops were shutting down the intersection. Luckily traffic was about nill. But when I stepped out of work, the sound was deafening. Like standing next to a jet engine. I never would have thought it would be so loud - and that was not on fire. Just the sound of rushing gas. deafening from half a block a way.

I was talking to a guy who was in the heating / hvac business about it. He asked me if I knew how they repaired such things. I said no. He said they weld it, which seemed insane to me. He said there was not enough oxygen to ignite it at the source. The only dangerous part came right as it was about sealed and oxygen was present.

Not a job I would want. Yikes.

Yup. Fire is a living entity. It needs air, fuel and a spark of life. Remove any of these and it can not survive. It also will fight for it's life.

So, in the situation above, the fuel rich environment displaces oxygen and starves it from the air it needs to be born.

Not disagreeing because an analogy could be there, but 'heat' is the third thing. I hadn't ever heard 'spark of life'. Sufficient heat has to be present for the fire to flash.

Trick's avatar, with Kurt and Courtney.

http://www.vandohalen.com.br/wp-cont...rtcourtney.png

I'm not sure many of you know, but there is a recent movie out called Soaked in Bleach that presents strong evidence that Courtney had Kurt killed for his money because she knew he was going to divorce her.

Cobain had a lethal dose of heroin in his system. A dose that wouldn't allow him to do anything immediately following injection but lay there. No chance of lifting a shotgun backwards and firing. Even as acclimated as his body was to heroin, that dose would have at once incapacitated him, and then killed him.

Norm Stamper, then Seattle chief of police, though signing off on the suicide determination, today says that he would re-open the case if he knew now what he didn't know then. He says that he was later trying to fire the detective for corruption, but the detective retired before he could levy the charge.

The private investigator, whom Courtney hired a week or two prior to them finding Kurt, became immediately suspicious by the things Love said. And he began investigating her. His story is the what the movie is all about.

Check it out.

Definitely will be checking that out, Drew.

Always thought there was something more to Cobains death.

Almost hit guy and girl on a motorcycle on the motorway today. Changed lanes from the middle to the left and they were in my blind spot which I neglected to check. He floated to the breakdown lane to avoid me, and had a special message for me when I finally saw them. Felt like shit about it for most of the day.

Drew, not so good, and not good for them, BUT, they'll get over it.

For the record though, buddy......., in this country, (probably like the USA, I can only guess) you are on the receiving end of this kind of stuff WAAAAY more often than dishing it out......, its good to "give back" now and again!

Don't feel like shit anymore.

You damn Americans take too long to adjust to driving on the wrong side of the road.

Motorcyclists that don't wear helmets but baffle me and kind of piss me off. The news had a report about an increase in injuries and deaths to motorcyclists in the area. I try to be extra aware always of them when I'm driving but some of their habits put them in peril. When you multiply that with not wearing a helmet, it just exacerbates the risk.

A motorcyclist without a helmet is an organ donor.

Always believed Motorbikes are generally safe machines. It's the fucking bellends who ride them that give them bad press.
