Got this from a friend of a friend...

This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire ... Oil in a frying pan. Please read the following introduction and then watch the show ... It's a real eye-opener!!

At a Charleston Navy base, the Fire Fighting Training school would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field. An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz Cup at the end of a10 foot pole toss water onto the grease fire. The results got the attention of the students. The water, being heavier than the oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated. The EXPLOSIVE force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out. On the open field, it became a thirty foot high fireball that resembled a Nuclear Blast. Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball hits the Ceiling and fills the entire room. Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire; one cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
