I can say hugged and kissed my girlfriend good night and told her I love her. So, that counts, right? lol

All joking aside, that guy is lucky to be alive.

Stupid but lucky. That could have turned out much worse for him. I'm not sure what I would have done, maybe even called the fire dept and let them help me out. That sounds quite dangerous....

No, it happened in Regina... The guy that posted the story in the link is from Saskatoon... One of the giveaways is that the pictures are from SGI's Regina Salvage lot...

I'm amazed he didn't eat some of the exterior pieces, or have steel wrapped around him.

If I were him, I'd have went right down and bought a lottery ticket; luck runs in streaks, they say. :)

1psi over a 10x 30" window is 300pounds; depending on the mix, it could have made over 100psi. :D

He's an idiot who Darwin showed mercy on.

It's a shame he slipped through the clutches of death; the gene pool will forever be contaminated for it ...

In all seriousness, I'm glad the guy survived. You know, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger or, in his case, hopefully smarter ...

BTW, I don't believe for a second that the story he told accurately reflects the actual chain of events.

A few years ago I saw a post on some forum, don't remember where...but it was similar carnage, from stupider beginnings...white chevy truck, all blown apart like that, but nothing burned. Truck was full of water baloons filled up with gasoline. They rubbed together, static electricity was created, BOOM!
