    I certainly wouldn't want to be sitting on top of a bomb for several hours every day. ICE cars are no different (aka ford pinto, jeep Cherokee...)

    Apparently a Natural gas delivery truck just exploded and demolished a maternity hospital in Mexico City. Bad day for the "clean" fossil fuel.

    Nah, gas cars are much less likely to explode. They burn out, unless mixed with lots of air (>92.4%).
