Understeer is when you're going along the road and you turn a corner, the car goes straight on - you hit a tree ...and you die. Now oversteer is when you drive down the same bit of road come to a corner, the back comes round - you hit a tree..... and you die. The thing to remember is that oversteer is best, because then you don't see the tree that kills you!

I'm familiar. But "not as likely as you'd think" doesn't mean it's a smart thing to do.

In America the smoker would have pulled out an AK-47 out of his pocket, fired at the gas station attendant, missed, and hit the gas pumps instead. Boom.  :lol:

It's fine though, everyone would have just slo-mo walked away from the explosion. It would have been hella cool.

Well, it is the vapors that fire off, not the puddle of gas. Toss a butt in a puddle of gas, and it smothers out. There have been several incidents of people filling plastic gas containers that ignited from static electricity.  The hospital did have a patient ignite his oxygen tank because he just had to have a smoke.

I'm constantly amazed by the number of people that absolutely have to smoke at the hospital. They are there after heart attacks and walk out wearing gowns and rolling their IV stands to the parking lot to smoke. We have a no smoking policy on campus and people hide behind trees to smoke; hide behind columns; take wheel chairs out to the sidewalks to sit in, while they smoke. What is even more perplexing are all the doctors and nurses that walk out to smoke.

I just don't get it...even though I used to smoke.

On my street is one of Munich's major hospitals. I walk or drive past there daily. It's incredible to see DOCTORS outside smoking. They of all people should know better.  :facepalm:

Because they make you feel crazy good. I mean, look at meth. Everyone knows how much it fucks you up. But man, it must feel crazy good because there's someone trying it for the first time right now, I'm sure.
