Oh yeah and smoking. I would not recommend that either.
When I was standing in one of the Sandy gas lines getting fuel for my generators a cop flipped his sh!+ on me when I was using my cell phone near a pump. He didn't mind it that the guy at the pump was pumping gas into peanut oil containers and that another guy was using 5 gallon buckets.

He was not amused when I brought the Mythbusters experiment.

On Camp Pendleton, spotted this 90 a few times on base over the last few months, first time that I've had the chance to snap a photo. Who are you? PM Me! There's a lot of events coming up that I'm trying to get local Defender participation for!

It's funny. I have personally known the guy that Mythbusters used as their expert on that episode.

From what I remember he has seen zero cell phone incidents. But the static electrify fires (many fatal) that he has seen have been many.

It's a shame really those fires happen so quickly that the person doesn't even realize it can be to late because of extreme heat and fire inhalation.

Today in Long Island City--TDi D90, doubtless a forum member and probably a truck I'd be able to find if I wanted to read all 270 pages of this thread...

Now that's a unique 90 sighting.
POE with a galv frame...

I'd flip a shot too. The line is the time for the phone (if even then) not when executing the actual task. Same as grocery store check-outs.

Victoria on Vancouver Island two days ago. Sorry about the poor picture. It was a nice looking Rover.

Let us know if it's badge 1499. If so, it was mine 2002-2005 and was in need of a rear cross some day.
