    Ah the good old difference between "Empty" and "nominally empty" catches out a fair few folk.

  4. Det Con Rachel Jackson said officers were treating the man's death as unexplained.

    I'll help - he blew himself up.

  7. This practice seems common amongst the tractor driving fraternity:

    Man Killed while making BBQ out of Oil Drum.....!!!!!

    My favourite quote being this guy, who by all accounts almost did the same thing.

    Wow, that sucks. It sounds like the thing that killed him was the fall.
    I have been getting 55 gallon drums from a fiberglass repair shop and that stuff is very flammable. For burning barrels, I always used a chisel to cut the top off and it worked well. One time a few years ago I had one that was sitting around for years and had the bung out already so I thought I would just use the welder to cut the lid off. I heard a big whoof from the hole. I tried it again and got another whoof, so I quit using that method. I then commenced to chisel it off like I always had.

    X740; 62" Deck; w/47" Snoblower; 42" Hydraulic Tiller.
    54" Front blade; 48" Belly Blade

    Rednecks eh!
  8. It was the eggs I tell you, the eggs!
  9. Should have followed correct procedure when BBQing eggs.

    No, but he did try to drum some up.
  12. When reading threads like this I wonder if Darwin and EM are related or even have a Jeckle and Hyde relationship. At any rate I imagine that the fateful deed developed something like this:

    SFB*: I need a super large BBQ that is not going to cost hundreds of beer tokens, what do I do?
    Kaboom, the Emporer himself appears in a flash.
    EM: SFB my humble servant, thou doth appear much vexed, perhaps I can help. You see that gash oil drum yonder? All you need to do is halve it amidships using your trusty angle grinder.

    SFB: But your Majesty it's an oil drum, is that not dangerous?

    EM: Fool! Dost thou doubt the infinite wisdom of the almighty EM? The drum is as empty as your head!

    SFB: Er no of course not Your Majesty. I shall proceed forthwith.

    EM: Just hang about whilst I fetch my ear defs, could be a tad loud.
    Makes off in haste as SFB grabs his angle grinder.

    SFB: Peace of piss this I'll have it do--

    *SFB= shit fa brains.
