Yes! finally someone with some common sense! gosh these people here are so uneducated, you have to give it love and care it deserves


schoolruler

I just pump it with gas and let it burp.


defacedlawngnome

I used to have a legless dog named Cigarette. I'd take him out every morning for a drag.


MadJesterXII

Well… if I ever get a legless dog… I’m what I’ll name him now


Liggliluff

But it still shows that the owner is somewhat lazy; instead of actually walking their propane tank, they drive with it tied to the car. People would be outraged if this was done to a dog, but people don't care about propane tanks as much :(

I think if anything he would have a few angry words for him about propane safety.


TheModeratorWrangler

*reads OSHA standards like it’s a religion* God Bless Hank.


XeroAnarian

Thank you for saying dang it, "Bobby," rather than "Damn it, Bobby." Most folks misquote Hank. Hank never has used the phrase "damn it" when it comes to Bobby. Bobby's his boy! Now, that giblet head Dale Gribble might have ran out in to traffic like that as a kid, I tell you hwhat. I grant you the highest honor from Strickland Propane, the Respect Award.


PeptoPirate

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J31fbDK2rY But to be fair with context I don't think he was saying it with the same intention as his typical "dang it, bobby." I think this was when Hank was upset that the hunting park he took Bobby to was using deer feeders right under their hunting stand.


XeroAnarian

Context is key. He was saying damn it for Bobby, not at him. But you get the "Wait, what?" award for showing that Hank has said those three words in order before.

Lol! This here is perfection in comment form. Also, this makes me really glad that safety standards exist for things like gas tanks. I'm pleasantly surprised the tank could handle that level of a beating without failing.

goblackcar

This Anti tailgate device is 100% effective.


tickles_a_fancy

I was just thinking that... it would keep the tailgaters off my ass. Empty cans aren't in any danger of exploding. Just leave the valve opened.


Ecstatic_Carpet

An empty canister could still fuck up someone's undercarriage or windshield. Improperly secured loads are a bad idea whether they're explosive or not.


murfburffle

There's a truck in my town that has a print on the back of an open cargo bay, with boxes tipping toward the back. You could make a holder in your bed that secures the bottle, but encourages it to bob, and shake, and generally look like it's about to tip off at all times. mount it high, so it looks like it's on the top of a mound of something. Or mount it on your roof, as if you you forgot you left it there before taking off.


cybernetic_scraps

One year at Christmas I mounted a hat to the roof rack on my SUV and you wouldn't believe the amount of people trying to let me know it was forgotten up there. I get to the end of a freeway off ramp and someone would motion for me to roll down my window: "You forgot your hat on the roof!" Thanks man, if it didn't fall off on the freeway I think it will wait another couple minutes. Took it off after too many people tried to save my hat


rxts1273

Hey! Don't Don't discouraged people's kindness, because for dumb folk like myself who actually forgot things like this one time with my wallet on the roof of my car it actually saved me when people told me to poll over.


cybernetic_scraps

Yeah I felt like a jerk because people kept stopping to help me when it wasn't neccesary and I was just trying to make my car festive but I kept making other people concerned. I kept yelling out "it's a decoration" and then I was just sad so I took it off Once my dad forgot his coffee cup on the rear bumper of his SUV and somehow it was still there 15 mins layer when he got to his destination


Ecstatic_Carpet

> Once my dad forgot his coffee cup on the rear bumper of his SUV and somehow it was still there 15 mins layer when he got to his destination This sounds like something a driving test evaluator would use as an automatic fail criteria. "If my coffee is gone when we get back, you're not getting your license."


peshwengi

I left my ski rack open with 2 pairs of new skis in there. If people hadn’t stopped me before I hit the highway it would have been very sad.


rxts1273

Very sad and very stupid, join the club! Now we're only stupid.


greatunknownpub

Sad life pro tip: glue a coffee cup to your roof and people will be waving at you like you have friends all day.


Ecstatic_Carpet

I've seen a lot of traffic interruptions caused by drivers trying to avoid sketchy loads on vehicles. I'm really not a fan of adding distractions to drivers in traffic, but at least your ideas aren't adding outright hazards.


OZeski

I put a really strong magnet in the base of a plastic coffee mug for the top of my car. Thought it’d be funny. People did some really stupid traffic maneuvers to try and get me to pull over.


OneHugeBobert

That is really funny lol. Try it with a popcorn bowl from a movie theater next.


AlchemyAvenue

Or a vodka bottle half filled with water.


catmampbell

Car seat with a baby doll in it


Faolanth

I mean it’s kinda like that thing where the guy glued a fake hammer to his tailgate so people would back off


T10M10

Just don’t tailgate and you won’t get hit by it /s


Thrawn89

Looks pretty secure to me /s


Old_Man_Shea

Even if you open a propane tank valve, no gas is coming out, unless you have a regulator hooked up. There's a spring loaded valve that prevents it.


peshwengi

But if the side of the tank wears away on the road..


Ranger7381

1) You are assuming that it is empty 2) Once a pressurized container is used, it is hard to get it empty without a vacuum or cutting it open 3) In transportation, once a container has hazmat in it, it is still considered to have hazmat residue in it, even if it is "empty", unless it is cleaned out. Pressurized containers are always considered at least at this level once filled for the first time, see point 2. In this case, the pressure is not the only issue, as Propane is also flammable, and any vapors left in the tank could combust if a spot is worn through the side, particuarly since that would be accompanied by sparks.


SoFisticate

This actually happens a lot when idiots who can't think about these things very well try to cut open an old empty tank to repurpose and the cutting wheel sparks and shebango


Ranger7381

Yep. I used to drive forklift, and went through all that in both general hazmat and forklift propane training. Where I worked at the time we actually had a fill station instead of just switching tanks, so we got a bit of extra training


LogisoftMicrotech

Actually I was always taught the most dangerous containers are the ones filled with only the explosive vapors. Kinda like gas: fill a steel tube and light it and it will just burn off slowly. But if you waited for it to evaporate off it would singe your eyebrows if you were too close and dropped a match in the tube.

ObtuseAndKneeless

It'd be pretty at night with the sparks and all.


The-Rocketman3

The law says it must be chained in place . Nothing illegal going on here


creamonyourcrop

Look at it try and keep up, poor thing.


Burninator05

Poor little guy. Probably kept up with you for a mile or so.


SadTomato22

Shouldn't have done that... he just a boy.


showponies

This is smart, you don't want it near the truck when it explodes.


The-Rocketman3

Maybe thats why he has it bouncing along behind him . So when it goes off its further away from him in the cab . And people think he’s an idiot


SpaceCaseSixtyTen

The next person who gets this propane tank after this dude swaps it in at the gas station may be in for a surprise


ElevenThus

“In place”


The-Rocketman3

The road is a place . Not the best place but still a place


Roasted_Turk

I see you have passed the bar exam.


The-Rocketman3

I passed out at the bar if that counts


marouan10

Tis a silly place


jmegaru

In place relative to the car, it is staying in the same spot, wheter it's being dragged on the road or sitting on the flatbed is irrelevant lmao

Wuz314159

If only there were some kind of gate on the tail end of that vehicle to keep things inside the bed.


merlin2745

Maybe it swung open and the tank fell out


lfgdude

And the driver never noticed? Ive had my tailgate fall open while driving and theres no way that would go unnoticed.


zeromadcowz

What's that noise? The implications scare me, I'll just turn up the music.


queefiest

I hate when my radio doesn’t work, then I have to listen to all the car noises lmao

> and theres no way that would go unnoticed. Sounds like you haven't met *people*. They're dumb as shit.


DJ_Vault_Boy

can confirm, people are dumb as hell. *source:work customer service in retail*


gsells937

I've driven with a tailgate open before, every bump would make a slamming noise and the truck would shake and bounce a little too


[deleted]

Depends on the truck. You can't hear mine at all. It also has the soft open struts and what not, so they don't bounce around like the old ones do.


BimmerM

Newer GM trucks have soft open/drop tailgates. Pretty sure that model year does


lfgdude

True that, good point 👍


dandanthechickenman

Plus with the mounted toolbox, gotta be obscuring that view a little. And on the highway people crank the music to overcome the hum of the road


buttercream-gang

Yeah, but I heard you get a ton more gas mileage this way!


Wuz314159

Fun Fact: [Tailgate Up](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3aqHbD-O9E) is the most fuel efficient. The gate creates a 0-friction air bubble that eliminates the effects of drag. It's the same reason why golf balls fly so far.


buttercream-gang

I believe mythbusters did an episode on it as well and debunked it Edit: responded before clicking your link lol


Complex_Solutions_20

The truck may not get more miles per gallon that way but the propane tank is sure racking up the road miles fast... I suppose you could call that "gas mileage"...


Wuz314159

Am I the only one around here who when they see a vehicle towing a fragmentation grenade doesn't think: "Oooh. Let me get really close to this."?


Admirable_Success732

I’m constantly amazed by the crazy stuff people drive right up to. Personally, there is nowhere I need to be that’s so important I gotta drive into a blast radius. 🤷‍♀️


howardcord

I really just give props to the engineers that designed that tank and the manufacture who built it. Though I guess at this point all the propane has escaped and it’s already broken, if that thing is full I’m impressed it hasn’t yet exploded.


wrongbecause

They are actually pretty safe tanks when it comes to Impact/crush force. The risk is leaking propane slowly into a sealed area (its heavier than air) and then going boom.


Aporkalypse_Sow

It's not the force, it's the friction. They're hard to crush, but the road and speed will grind a hole in no time.


koos_die_doos

Even then, it would be more like a rocket than a bomb.


galstaph

I would drive up past it quickly, then slow down next to them to try to signal them of the danger they were creating, but if that wasn't possible/reasonably safe I'd stay pretty far back.


gsells937

I feel like getting in front hazards on and trying to point them to the shoulder is your best bet


Lars_Ebk

I feel like this would just provoke a road rage


PrimmSlimShady

Ive gotten a few people to pull over, but I would not pull in front of them, I go to their side and wave to them and point backwards


gsells937

It might, I'm not talking about cutting them off or anything. But anything can provoke road rage. Honestly you're probably better off keeping distance and calling 911


RandyHoward

Until you're on your way around and that tank and chain whips around your direction. That chain gets tied up in your wheel and you're in for a real bad time.


Complex_Solutions_20

I couldn't decide what's actually connecting it... If it's a chain or if it's a hose connected to some appliance still in the truck bed?


snayte

I think it is a hose connecting it so something.


alison_bee

A few weeks ago I was on the interstate and came up behind an 18wheeler that had one of its back trailer doors open and swinging wildly. There were 4 other cars ahead of me (scattered in different lanes) but no one seemed to be doing anything/paying attention. I had a clear path to get past the truck, so I sped up until I was equal with him and started frantically motioning towards the back and saying “pull over” (even though I knew he couldn’t hear me). Thankfully he did pull over… right in time for the door to slam into one of those huge metal “exit 716” signs. So yeah, if you c an safely get the persons attention, do it! Otherwise keep your distance and, oh I don’t know… maybe call 911?!?! Since that’s what they’re there for??? People love to just ignore problems and hope they go away.


audballgeo

Fun fact regarding this context. The expansion ratio of propane from liquid to vapor is 270:1.


BentGadget

How much more does it expand after igniting the vapor?


liquiddeath

Seriously. That’s an area of effect attack people!


Goredrak

Thank you! Holy hell you have to dig into thread to find this


IronRhiley

Two of you drive by without letting him know I’m sure…


Wacefus

This was my first thought too. Like, you can easily get their attention and let them know. I don’t understand why Neither driver is honking.


Dysfunctional_Vet12

No way, why try to be a helpful person when you could just record it so you can post it on the internet.


reftheloop

They got it on video tho.


miragen125

A least this way people keep their distances. No need to brake check anyone...


mobiusunderpants

you say that as that minivan was happy trundling along just like 10 feet away


Puzzleheaded-Quote77

Kinda had me wondering if people realize there was at least some danger there. I am getting around him as fast as I can because even being behind if something happens you are driving into it at 70MPH which will close some distance pretty quick.


Zabuzaxsta

Absolutely blows my mind what some people will ignore. I had a plastic cup fly out of my bed and smack someone in the windshield and they just kept driving. Completely negligent on my part, sure, but they just acted like it didn’t happen. I’ve also had secured loads with caution flags and the whole nine but people just want to get right up in my butthole. Don’t understand it


CJYP

I mean, what else do you do at that point? I've had a rock crack my windshield and there wasn't anything for me to do really except keep driving and get it fixed when I got to my destination. It happened because someone was driving in the space between an HOV lane and the travel lane, so someone was at fault, but no chance they were going to stop. And it was a small crack, so not immediately dangerous. If my windshield was hit by a plastic cup, I wouldn't expect the person who lost the cup to stop either. If there's no damage I'd probably drive on.

Glad somebody said this


BeastCheng

Michael Bay is turned on by this


CGHJ

Well it’s obviously a safety thing, if that propane tank blows up you don’t want it in the back of your own truck do you?! This is actually a genius solution, any explosion will sever the cable and you’ll already be driving away from it at 80 miles an hour. Sucks for the guy behind you, but you don’t know them.


butterflavoredsalt

I see two idiots in this video. This sub needs to ban stuff filmed by people driving. Put your damn phone away, your internet points aren't worth it.

lets just film it; why speed up and tell him/her? imma right LOLZ YOLO # some kinda shit, or whatever the kiddos do these days

Eiffel-Tower777

What a drag.


Pistonenvy

does no one make any attempt whatsoever to alert this guy about whats going on and pull over instead of whipping their camera out to get points on the internet? wtf is wrong with people.


Previous_Value2878

Right? Like this is scary.


modsareflaccid

Not how I’d deal with tailgaters, but it’s certainly effective


Cram_it_karen

Driving behind him while filming seems pretty Idiotic as well.


SuperbCrawdad2

At least it didn’t fly off and kill someone, he could’ve not even tied it down.


point50tracer

He's a mini boss. Shoot the explosives to deal critical damage. The main boss won't be too far ahead.


Admiral-Talamee

Ngl was kinda hoping for an explosion lmao.


toodleroo

The best thing to do in this situation is to take out your phone and shoot a video while driving your own car, not do everything you can to alert the other driver


konkeydong313

That's a bomb. Metal scraping across pavement tends to create sparks. Wait til it gets the slightest pin hole worn in it. Yee haw.

Here in Australia we'd have alerted the driver to his unseen hazard and saved them from potential disaster. There in MERCA, "well shoot Billy-Bob we dun go viral with this here vid-e-o" 🙄


shuttermayfire

guys, >!at least he has a full tank of gas!<


adudeguyman

Not for long


taowiththeforce

Just a man taking his propane for a walk. Nothing to see folks.

Whichever one it was it's one of the best unintentional comedies ever.

No way would I ride near this truck nor take time to record it. I would pass as fast as I could, maybe try to signal to the driver, and get the fuck out of dodge. This is a silly place to dawdle.
