Smoking is on the decline

I have clear proof that smoking is on the decline even in the Haredi community.

Today there was an accident between a city tractor removing flags from poles on the road and between a Paz gasoline tanker truck. The truck was pierced and 16,000 liters of benzine poured out onto the roads.

If Bruce Willis in Diehard is any indication, a single lit cigarette in the area being thrown to the ground would have blown Modiin Ilit to high heaven.

Thank God smoking is [obviously] down, and nothing happened. The road was blocked off, firemen came and sprayed foam and go everything cleaned up in a couple of hours...


  1. Hate to Mythbust this one on ya... It is possible to ignite a pool of gasoline using only a cigarette.
    A cigarette has the potential to light a pool of gasoline but just doesn’t have enough sustained heat. Gas ignites between 500 °F and 540 °F, the cigarette at its hottest was between 450 °F and 500 °F but only when it was actually being smoked. An ignition is very improbable.
