Man tries kill spider with lighter at gas station


it went about how you would expect it to.

 

 

A man tried to kill a spider at a gas station using a lighter causing a dangerous fire.



Using a lighter to kill the bug, he started a blaze that quickly engulfed the gas pump.

He somehow escaped serious injury and the gas station's damage was contained to one pump, which was destroyed. The incident was recorded at a Center Line gas station.

Employee Susan Adams kept calm and hit the gas automatic stop button and quickly called the Center Line fire department.

The man grabbed a nearby extinguisher and put out the flames before firefighters arrived. Later he admitted what he did, saying he spotted a spider on his gas tank and because he's deathly afraid of the critters.

He pulled out his lighter and decided to burn it. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happened next.

Employees at the gas station have been having fun with the video ever since.

This charred fuel pump says it all. We are told his car was barely damaged from the flames. But his embarrassing mistake didn't stop the man from coming back the next day as a customer.

"He was sorry," Susan said. "He was sorry, he said he didn't know. It is just one of those things that happen - stupidity."

Adams said this serves as a reminder about being careful around gas pumps. Whether it is using a cell phone or static electricity, the smallest spark can cause a gas station fire.

The accident is expected to be covered by the station's insurance.

Dumbass should of known that a flame thrower is more effective and covers more distance.

As long as the spider got what it deserved

I thought gasoline has a high, and I'm not sure what the right term is exactly, ignition threshold?

That is to say, I've read that a simple spark or tossing a lit cigar into gasoline doesn't cause it to ignite.

Caveat: I didn't watch the video, so I'm not sure how long the exposure was to a source of fire. Phone Post 3.0

I am assuming the fumes ignited first

I hope the spider made it.

People are strange - more afraid of a probably harmless spider than mixing fire and many gallons of gasoline.

I read a similar story a few days ago where a woman jumped out a slowly moving car because of a spider. What's worse is she had her 6 year old still in the car which crashed into a ditch. The kid was not injured but that's still fucking insane. Phone Post 3.0

The term your looking for is kindling temperature (i think), and while its higher than a lit cigarette or cigar, a flint spark is much hotter and more than enough to ignite the fumes, which have a lower kindling temperature than the liquid gasoline. I lit my foot on fire when i was kid doing almost the same thing to an open pail of gas, for no good reason. I didn't think it would light with just a spark about 5 inches above the pail. Then i tried to stomp it out and the pail melted and stuck to my foot, at which point I did half a back flip and landed on my head while the flaming pail of gas flew through the air. This all took place on the golf course behind my house. Goddamn I was a dummy. Phone Post 3.0

Spark or flame, yes.
Hot embers from cigarette, mostly no. Phone Post 3.0
