    Gather round kids, gather round, for it is story time with your's truly, Good Ole' Uncle Bill.

    This is a true story, and it is another one of those stories that tell us, WOW, Darwin was right!!!!

    This happened just this weekend past, in a nice hamlet of the Chicago area, called, Joliet.

    It seems this fair maiden, the poor lass, was in need of some petro. Now....not for your horseless carriage mind you, but instead for some other petro powered device.

    And so off she went driving her horseless carriage to yonder petro station from which she planned to fill petro into her portable gas can.

    Upon arriving at the petro station, our hero, instead of removing the portable gas can from her car and setting it upon the ground, decided instead to keep the gas can on the passenger seat of her horseless carriage.

    She then proceeded to fill the container with aforementioned, petro. some point, she had decided, since it was 1030pm and quite dark outside, that she needed to see how much petro had filled into the container. She then proceeded to produce and then flick on, a cigarette lighter.

    Well kids, you can guess what happened next. The flame found the fumes protuding from the gas can, and there was an explosion. The interior of her horseless carriage immediately became engulfed in flames.

    The poor, poor, lass, was able to push her carriage approx 5 feet away from the petro dispensing unit, before the local fire department guys showed up to douse the flames.

    Our hero survived to tell the tale, but not without several 2nd degree burns.

    Well that it is, my friends.....Story time with Uncle Bill is over for today.

    We will see you next time! :biggrin:
