I'm reminded of a case in the newspapers where clever well qualified 
person managed to kill themselves lighting a garden bonfire with a can 
of petrol (gasoline). Seemingly the catch is that the vapour spreads at 
ground level, by the time you light the match you're standing in the 
middle of a cloud of gas.
