dangers.

ammunition

One of my most common sayings; "Don't blame the equipment when its operator
failure!"  We never even lit the thing in the tent.  Would light it outside
then bring into the tent.

operator

outside

     You seem to have missed the point that the equipment defiantly failed;
having the fuel in the tent was (as I admitted) dumb and served to make the
tent fire all that more spectacular.  A Coleman lantern contains
pressurized, highly volatile, fuel within a thin brass tank.  It depends on
several seals, fittings, and soldered seams to contain the fuel which is
trying very hard to find a way out.  Something in mine failed without
warning and the fuel got out.  The point of my story is not only "don't do
stupid things", but also "don't use a Coleman Lantern anywhere where you can
not deal with spurting, ignited fuel".

 Reads a lot better when you misspelled it.

Defiantly sure adds a touch of personality to the lantern.

I liked the image of a defiant lantern showing who's boss   I've often
suspected some of these things are 'out to getcha'. :-)
