PSA to remember never to leave oily rags wadded up!

A neighbor down the street was getting an addition put on and apparently the contractors left a bunch of wadded up oily rags in a large metal barrel along with other construction debris, inside the house.  

The whole thing caught fire. Luckily, the fire remained contained within the metal barrel and eventually put itself out but not before coating the entire inside of the house with a thick layer of soot. Lucky the whole place didn't burn down. 

What started as a simple bump-out addition turned into a complete gut job.

That's crazy isn't it? That was drilled into our heads in High School shop. Out rag bin was outside the building in a vented metal can. I still do that.

I came to a stop sign and a skanky tweaker chick in a tube top climbed out of the brush and propositioned me.  She looked like she didn't have any teeth so I counted that as a plus.
