(Humor) Here's what you call a Real Diesel Man-Drinks Diesel...

A little off topic but saw this on "Burt's Idiot of the Day" website and had to share it with you guys. I sure don't like my diesel this much!

THE MAN WHO DRINKS PETROL: Garage ban for maniac...
A MAN has been banned from garages - for sneaking on to forecourts to drink petrol.

Brian Taylor, 36, has been branded a four-star pest for slashing hoses to get at the fuel and terrorising staff and shoppers.

He was pictured on security cameras pouring a drink of unleaded before doing a maniacal dance while high on fumes.

Taylor, who doesn't drive, has been issued with an anti-social behaviour order banning him from all garages in Teesside.

The ASBO means he can't even get a carry-out - as the order forbids him having a petrol can in a public place.

Taylor, of South Bank, Middlesbrough, was warned that if his behaviour doesn't stop he will go to jail.

Teesside magistrates heard that on 51 occasions he terrorised staff and shoppers after drinking and sniffing petrol at the filling station at Asda's South Bank store.

On several occasions, he was aggressive when they tried to stop him.

Security footage taken in the early hours one day in July last year showed him dancing wildly around pumps while worried staff watched from their kiosk.

He was caught filling containers day and night after making holes in the hoses.

He usually went for unleaded but was happy with four star and diesel, police said.

Hmmm, I have been wondering about my fuel economy lately. Maybe that crazed neighbor? No, not that.

I'm part of a fire performance group in town, http://www.pandorasmatchbox.com, and part of my act is fire breathing with biodiesel.

Using a few ounces of biodiesel at a time I can aspirate towers of flame upwards of 10 feet high. Smells like fried food, too.







Its maniacal, but not THAT maniacal.

peace,
sam

Yikes!


You've also got to have some grudging admiration for that fuel drinker.

He doesn't cower in the corner with his solvent, quietly scrambling his brains.
He comes to you and slashes hoses to extract his nourishment, like a Leopard!

I saw a so-called "Magician" set his assistant on fire doing that once. It was a spectacular ending to a national sales meeting.

I only have the pics hosted on my myspace. www.myspace.com/monomer




all of those pics were taken spinning colman whitegas, as I've not made a small batch of bio in years.
