We're having a bit of a fuel crisis over here in the UK at the moment. Fuel has kept hitting record highs virtually every day for the last couple weeks and then to top it off the tanker drivers have decided to go on strike - or at least threatened to. This has led to a run on fuel stations; http://www.economist.com/blogs/blighty/2012/03/panicking-over-petrol BBC News - Fuel strike over Easter ruled out by union My town is now dry of all fuel so I'm glad I'm not in the taxi game anymore (and I took the foresight to fill up last week), but the reason for this thread is the following; BBC News - Woman seriously burned decanting petrol So a woman poured petrol from one can to another in her kitchen when she had the gas cooker/stove on!?! We all know what would happen next - BOOOOM! You couldn't make it up! Obviously it's very bad for this woman and she wishes she hadn't done it, but come on, who in their right mind would slosh petrol around in a confined space/room with gas rings burning?
