Burning Down A House 101

OK here’s the thing man whose mansion is burning, don’t be telling neighbors not to help put it out because you’re insured, that’s a sure way to get arrested. Trevor John Mack has been accused of burning down his million dollar home on the Gold Coast. Reason? Well the sure tell signs it wasn’t no accident…his car and a storage shed were packed with his belongings (including his current insurance policy) and an upturned jerry can was found at the scene. He says he didn’t but his ex wife (who he owes a substantial amount of money) says otherwise.

You Nearly Mowed Everyone Down!

Ah shit, mom's attempting to mow the lawn again!

Ah shit, mom's attempting to mow the lawn again!

Whoopsie, a woman who was filling up a can of petrol so she could mow the lawn nearly blew herself to kingdom come. Seems a little static electrical charge ignited the gas at a Sydney service station and if it wasn’t for a quick thinking staff member who hit the kill-switch the fire could have ignited the 150,000 litre of fuel lying in the underground storage tanks.Boom!The problem it seems was the woman, only identified as Rose, was holding the jerry can in the air when she was pouring the gas (a big friggin no-no) instead of having it earthed on the ground. Hmm, a little lookie around at the safety signs would have told her that! Anywho, the flames spread to the bowser before incinerating Rose’s car . Had Mohammad Sheerez not pressed the big red button the whole city block could have gone kaboom! I guess she won’t be mowing the lawn this week!

Psst And for her next trick Rose will be attempting to use a power tool!
