    When a pipeline bursts around here, which would be a rare occurrence, people stay as far away as possible and the environmental impact is immediately the biggest concern. Not so much in Nigeria, where a petrol pipeline burst is just an opportunity to scoop up as much free fuel as possible in whatever vessel you can find. By the way, my wife Lynda spent ten years off and on in Nigeria.

    When the grain trucks weighed in and were overloaded, sometime's they'd dump on the side of the road. My dad and I sued to haul ass out there in a truck and score a couple hundred pounds of grain

    I wonder if the amount of money they saved in fuel was spent on fuel filters?

    Several times over the last few years, dozens of them have been killed when the whole lot went up in flames while they were collecting it. Guess someone wanted a celebration cigar for all the gas he'd collected!
