Thanks for that Mr. Wolf. Betcha lots of folks besides me didn't know of that danger.

Even filling a car, something like this could happen.

On a smaller scale

Just enough to kill ya.

Scary.



Nanny state will soon make the law.

hopefully.

Just think..........people used to smoke while fueling.

Really? Snopes has the following to say about it. I don't know one way or the other myself.

I know that gasoline is obviously highly combustible and anything that creates an electrical spark, even static, can potentially ignite it. Are cell phones really any more dangerous than just being charged statically? Like on your clothing for example.

Cell phones + Anything = bad mix I see people walking in heavy traffic with their eyes and their minds focused on the cell phones/I pods. It's a sickness.

Maybe it came into contact with something then? I'm not trying to downplay or debunk or anything, lol, really I'm not.(Although I do routinely run anything posted on Facebook through Snopes, lol) It's just not the greatest video for visuals.

But it got me to wondering about it. I know even an inadvertent spark, like static electricity, can potentially ignite a highly combustible substance like gasoline.

lately Facebook has started with bizarre ads and they are well set up...it appears to be a story or information but when you get further they are flogging a product

I don't know whether it's just me but lately I find browsing irritating...when I am trying to read an article it's difficult to tell where to click to advance the article because when it says next, next could actually be attached to 20 other things on the page and leads one astray. I know that is the purpose but when I am interested in what I am reading, I find it irritating.

That's why I use it only for communicating with family and friends. Not entertainment.
