192. A friend of mine was working on his bike in his attached garage taking the fuel tank off. When the phone rang, he stuffed the fuel line back on the shut off valve (can you see where this going?). He answers the phone and grabs another beer in the same hand that is holding a screw driver and pushes the door open to return to the garage. He drops the screwdriver into what is now a 6 foot wide puddle of gas! He watches the slow-motion end-over-end flight of the screwdriver as it hits the puddle and, of course, sparks, etc. etc. etc. The two bikes didn't fall down, they melted down with half of the garage, all tools, freezer, kid's bicycles, etc.
