Can A Lit Match Light Gasoline?

Remember that scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” when a guy flicks a match into a leaking stream of gasoline? The huge burst of flames made a great visual – but the truth was left in the ashes.

A British study concluded that a match lighting gas was possible (as in ‘you winning the lottery’ is possible) – but extremely improbable.  They tried it exactly 2000 times and couldn’t do it.  And then everyone got bored and went home.

A  lit match is between 450-500 degrees F. Gasoline ignites between 500-540 degrees F.  So it’s too close to play – but not close enough to seriously chance a fire.  Just thought you’d like to know.

Disgusting Hatred

Friday, March 19th, 2021

I’m absolutely appalled by this wave of Asian hatred sweeping across our country!

Years ago, I had the privilege of visiting five countries in Asia to promote my book. The people were quiet, kind, polite, humble, and friendly.

Totally unlike most Americans I’ve met.

Saint Patrick looking for more snakes?

I can’t imagine anyone taking pride in something they didn’t accomplish themselves. Your ancestry is just an accident of birth and has little to do with who you are today. Proud to be Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, American, or anything else – just doesn’t make sense to me.

We’re celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day today. We celebrated it last weekend too but there was some liquor left over. 

But really what are we celebrating? Irish public intoxication? Corned beef and cabbage? Potatoes before Atkins? (no wonder these people drink so much – their food sucks) Of course the Irish were discriminated against when they first came to America.  So was everyone else except the Pilgrims. And Indians have stories that’ll tear your heart out. But really, who cares?

So we gave the Irish some green stripes down the road, parades, and a 1-day license to be raging drunks . The Italians got  Columbus Day and the Indians got casinos and no tax on cigarettes. The Blacks got Kwanzaa and the Jews got the whole garment district in New York. Everyone gets something – this is America – be happy. And if you can’t be happy with what you get, at least be thankful you don’t get what you deserve.

I feel the same way about Italians and Columbus day:
