    I don't understand why they are running away, the worst was already over.

    Somehow I wonder if that was staged. That sounded like a firecracker went off, not like when I have heard delayed ignition. If they were trying to light the pilot they would not even be able to see where the pilot was to light it.

    That wasn't delayed ignition, that was electrical.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I'm feelin' a little peculiar.

    I guess that shows how long it has been since I have been around a dead short.

    Reading the comments they were talking about lighting the pilot and holding the button too long before trying to light it so . . .

    It looks like a gas explosion to me. Speaking from experience I bet that girl had a bit of a sunburn.

    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    It didn't sound like a gas explosion to me but the way her hair moved it looked like it. I don't ever remember my hair flowing in the breeze on those times I created a spark from live wires.

    Well I didn't particularly trust any of the audio to actually have anything to do with the video as it seemed to be doctored.
