I like the woman who fills a bin bag with gasoline and then when it leaks, double-bags it. Now that's practicality.

The video made me laugh, but is many months old.

That'll be for the new "gel gasoline", it's a semi-solid form of fuel like you find around dinosaur seeds, with the simple chemical formula (a few gazillion hydrocarbons)-H2O3.

Perhaps there should be a thread "Little Eye on the Crazy World of Florida", in which case this:

https://www.tampabay.com/news/crime/2021/06/02/boy-10-shot-after-florida-man-let-him-use-paintball-gun-in-drive-by-shooting-police-say/

would be at home.

A few things to note:
Age of "parent" and age of child.
The "stand your ground" principle at work.

Your notes are indeed eye opening, although I found this quote more mind bending.
"He fired one shot, which struck the child. The boy then lost his balance and was run over by his father’s vehicle, police said."

"Run over by his father's vehicle" seems to contradict the line "so he could fire his paintball gun out the window." That's before we even consider the vehicle's autonomous malice.

I would wonder how they plan to get the fuel out of the bags and into the tank. But it's never going to get that far...

I've seen that setup before:  They get the fuel out after the crash, using a small high explosive charge to create a cloud, along with an incendiary charge to ignite it.  They're supposed to use some diesel in the mix for the obligatory plume of thick black smoke, thobut.

It's vitally important to remove all the wheelnuts before pushing the car off the cliff, of course.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Commendable attempt at retroactive Darwinism.  Now all Daddy needs to do is jump in front of his own moving car.

They could have done a far better job by paintballing a cop shop.
But they never got to Carcassonne.
