    I was using a torch to kill weeds today and i kept wondering what it'd look like if I flamed over a pocket of gas or something. That looks fun.

    I prefer to play redneck whack a mole, but most cities don't allow it, so I can see why someone would use petrol instead.

    HAHA that was me 26 years ago when I bought my house. Had a serious rat problem. I put out traps, poison, shot them with a bb gun, and poured gasoline down their holes whenever I found them. Didn't blow up the yard but one time I did light the mulch pile on fire. Hole I put gas in was about 20 feet from the pile but there was another connecting hole next to it. Flames shot out of the second hole and lit up the leaves and grass.

    In 2018 I killed 18 moles on my 3 acres.
    Last year it was 6.
    I already have two tunnels coming in this year.

    I understand how he got that far off his rocker.

    My uncle did something similar about 40 years ago.

    The rats were digging holes into the sewer pipes. My uncle poured petrol down one of the holes and left it, hoping it would kill the rats. He then went back to mowing the lawns.

    About 20 minutes later he decided to try to light the petrol to kill the rats faster.

    By that time of course the petrol fumes had filled the sewer pipes.

    The explosion lifted the cast iron manhole lid on the road outside his house and caused a fountain of water out of the neighbour's toilet bowl which covered the ceiling and walls with toilet water.

    When the neighbour came out of her house screaming, my uncle denied any knowledge and claimed he hadn't heard anything over the noise of the lawnmower and with earmuffs on.

    I get weird looks using pump gas to light the wood stoves at the range, as if this is what people are expecting to happen.

    Since Americans don't typically call gasoline "petrol" we can narrow the field of suspects.

    A famous case from Phoenix involving residual explosive vapors from my Fire Fighting/Confined Space Rescue days.

    If the guy survived in the OP video, he was lucky. The Phoenix FF died of " massive displacement of thoracic organs ".
