False - no-one has claimed that dropping matches into petrol will ignite them

Thread is about gas, the petrol reference was in passing and to illustrate the point that we would (presumably) all agree that having petrol in pipes in our homes would be preposterous, yet we do it with gas.

Nope, because it isn't preposterous. Petrol in pipes in our homes is no more dangerous than the petrol in the fuel lines in our cars.

And no-considers cars dangerous. A petrol leak is very different from a gas leak.

I don't really see gas being piped in your home any more of an issue than having a car full of petrol, or flying through the air in a plane full of kerosene. There's an intuitive understanding that despite the danger, it's worth it.

I suppose one day our fusion powered civilisation might regard it as primitive and dangerous, and be surprised that hundreds of people per year (or whatever it is) died as a result of simply trying to heat their home.

One key difference though. You can't have electric powered planes, so to fly we know we have to risk fire or explosion. Electric cars although they exist, aren't viable for most people for various reasons. Certainly, if it were just as easy to replace my car with an equal costing electric one, with the same performance and range, I would do so.

Homes on the other hand are a different matter. We can power and heat our homes entirely from electricity very easily. If an electric boiler isn't serviced properly it doesn't poison our air with carbon monoxide. It doesn't have the ability to blow up half the street like with a gas leak either.

Which is why I question whether people should have the right to impose this risk on non-gas using neighbours.

I think in 50 years we could well have electric powered planes. It'd make aviation even safer too, because it seems a lot of air disasters end in big fuck off fires where passengers and crew survive the landing but then burn to death in the cabin.
