  1. (this is a spin-off of flytire's post about the smoker at the gas station) Most of you chaps probably know this but just in case..... Long ago, I had gotten my first truck and of course, that involved getting a cap and bed-liner too. I was way up north on a fishing trip and I stopped in at the gas station to fill up the tank, and to fill up my 5 gallon plastic fuel jug. I was going further on & needed some extra fuel out in the bush. As I slid the empty fuel jug out from the plastic bed-liner, I heard a LOUD snap and sensed a huge static electricity spark near the jug. I was surprised as it being July; the humidity was off the charts and I thought how odd to hear such a spark under these conditions. I put the jug down on the ground near the pump and filled it up. As it was filling, I read a posted sign on the pump that any jug must be filled on the ground, as the likelihood of static build-up with a jug not grounded is very high. This was brand new info to me, and I had never heard of such a condition, but my experience was fresh and first-hand. And fortunate! So, be mindful of this hazard and stay un-burnt. I have been on fire once and it's an experience one should never go through. Thanks for reading, stay safe.
