    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    I saw this video on TV recently. It was not a lighter that he was holding but a cell phone. However it was determined that it was not the cell phone that caused the fire but static electricity. IIRC the truck was not properly grounded before the guy started to mess with it.

    Did the guy survive? Looks like he may have fallen off the truck and at that height seems like you could get hurt big time (apart from being a flaming human)

    Oops. Not a very hot idea.

    I'm surprised the truck didn't explode.
