    no one took a video of it. It'd be hilarious and I bet it'd get a million hits on youtube.

      I was welding and heard several things fall over as I bumped some steel bits that fell..I could tell by the noise which parts had fallen..each have their own little note they make....about six things (I wasn't stopping my welding while I had the setup and position, so I kept on...) then I heard a 'clunk'...I thought hmmm that sure sounded like that quart can of acetone...well, I better look.

      YIPES! hippity skippity was I as I took away the welding hood and saw that the can had, (loose cap and all)  gushed acetone around my feet and the sparks had lit it up: I was standing in a four foot diameter circle of yellow (a cool flame) burning acetone on asphalt.
          hilarious running around and fire extinguishing mess ensued..
        The beard's trimming was another time 'cricklecricklewhat'sthatsmelllikeburninghair? hood off, whackitawhack..but I certainly remember the little orange smoldering ends crinkling up the exposed strands of my dopey award winning beard, the late.

      But burnt, geez! inside machinery welding, now that is way more manly and dangerous than any fool stunt I ever tried, not funny at all what could have happened. And that maybe was some huge spark throwing buzz box as different than my little sissified MIG wire feed that is so easy even a monkey can weld with it...and then overhead welding, ugh! Glad you survived that adventure!
