That story made me go to wikipedia to remind myself the plot of The Murders in the Rue Morgue.

I'm confused. They say they don't have penises but then say they have 15 members. LOL

There's an inevitability to this one that's almost comforting:

Pranksters have turned a giant bicycle created to celebrate the Tour of Britain into a giant penis.
Locals in Ilfracombe, Devon, got a "rude awakening" when they spotted the naughty artwork on the side of Capstone Hill on Tuesday morning.

Not a good time to own stock in Columbia Gas of Massachusetts.

When your workers fuck up doing a gas line replacement and blow up 40 houses, displace 8,000 people, and kill one person, you're doing something wrong.

Can you imagine? They must have turned off the gas, all the pilot lights in town went out, and then they turned it back on again. The gas flowed through all those appliances with no pilot lights to ignite it, and then the houses blew up when the concentrations got high enough.

I wonder if hackers can hack the municipal gas valves remotely and do a terrorist attack that way?

Makes me wonder exactly how gas appliances work. Do modern ones only open the gas valves when certain ignition temperatures are confirmed? I know my oven works that way, but my 70 year old furnace doesn't. How about water heaters? Is there some sort of pilot light confirmation system?

Even all 1950 furnaces and water heaters had a thermocouple that would not permit gas flow if the pilot light did not heat that thermocouple.

Starting a pilot light meant holding a button for maybe 30 seconds while lighting the pilot. So that the thermocouple got hot enough to not cut off gas. That was standard even in 1950.

Part that failed most often was that thermocouple.

Appliances, since the 1980s, no longer use a pilot flame. If electricity does not ignite gas, then gas is cut off.

My wall furnace uses a pilot light. It's a sight newer than 1980.
