    RAAF man serious after portaloo blast

    A MAN from the Royal Australian Air Force who suffered horrific burns in a portaloo explosion, remains in a serious condition. The man received third-degree burns to his head, face, arms, chest and airways in the incident at the Rockhampton airport about 9.30am (AEST) yesterday.
    The Department of Community Safety said it's believed the man was lighting a cigarette at the time, a spokeswoman said.
    He was taken to the Rockhampton Hospital but transferred to the burns unit of the Royal Brisbane Hospital overnight.
    He remains in a serious condition, a defence spokesman told AAP.
    The man had been taking part in a joint US-Australia military exercise, Talisman Sabre.

    This would be real funny if the poor bastard was not so badly injured! They say smoking is bad for your health!

    Forgive my ignorance, but how would lighting a ciggie in a portaloo cause an explosion? Is that chemical blue stuff extremely flammable or what? Surely, there would be massive no smoking signs plastered all over them if so?

    I've sat on these and smoked loads of times on construction sites and festivals and never realised I ran the risk of blowing my balls off...and I'm sure in the building site safety inductions which go into tedious detail of every potential hazard they would mention this?

    Something is not right about this story, it doesnt state what exactly caused the explosion. As far as I'm aware a portaloo consists of plastic, running water, chemical flush and a pit of shit and piss mixed with blue fluid. If the blue fluid isnt flammable, he must have been inhaling butane in there or something.

    my army unit when it came back from vietnam in 69 had a painting on the ors mess it was a picture of a major flying over the top of hessian barrier grabbing his burning arse.
    The local viets used to clean the shit houses which was a long trench with a dozen thunder boxes placed on top and covered with logs and earth, by pouring petrol into the trench raising all the lids on the dunnies and dropping in some burning paper, all the crawlies and paper was burnt of. the officers ones were at the end.
    evidently the gook forgot to raise the lids threw in a match lids blew up and lids flew back down.
    plenty of petrol fumes left in trench, CO came along sat down lit a ciggie and dropped the match in lifted him 5 feet over the hessian and third degree burns to his arse.
    he was not a happy camper when he was posted back to the unit and he was invited in to our mess for a beer and saw the painting.
    so maybe smoking is a health hazzard.

    Maybe the Americans were practising their Friendly Fire drills and lobbed a grenade at him while he was taking a dump.

    Disturbing a man's visit to the bog should be punishable by death.

    Local papers here suggest methane gas.

    I've heard of the burning ring of fire but that's a little bit over the top.
