    That is definite sphincter and bladder control loss moment. With a very loud "HOLY S&^%!" thrown in for good measure.

    Just after Katrina, we were recovering boats from woods and railroad tracks and stacking them in a field. The edge of the shoreline caught fire when some entrepreneurs used a cutting torch to scavenge some boat tackle. We rushed over with pumps to keep the whole fleet from going up in smoke and I was lead on the hose. There was piles of flotsam at the highwater mark, burning fiercly. Nobody ever considered a 100 lb. propane tank would have been buried in the burning debris. The resulting explosion set four of us on our collective arses with no greater injury that a $300.00 pair of Maui Jim sunglasses I was wearing were cut completely into at the bridge of my nose by shrapnel. Can't recall a time every being so damned lucky.

    Those bottles are supposed to vent, out the little rubber plug, in the bottom, if they get thrown in a fire..... but apparently yours did somethings a little different..... I burn my trash weekly in a 3/8 Steel Plate Incinerator, and have had things blow the same way, on "Me".... Momma always watches to make sure I don't blow myself up when I burn the trash.... I use a mix of #2 diesel, and gasoline, usually about 75:25 to get things going... but when it get closer to 50:50, things can get exciting, when you throw the match in...... ..... YMMV....

    This thread would be a whole lot funnier if y'all would get a person with a video camera before you start. That way we could all see before, during, and after pictures that include smoke blackened faces, no hair on arms, missing eyebrows, wet spots at crouch, etc etc. NOW THAT WOULD BE PRICELESS !!! We could make compilation tape videos and how not to do things, video etc. All the while LOAO.
