My dog discovered this with the tip of her tail one time. Dog hair burns/melts pretty quickly when the burner is going wide open and now my dog is nowhere to be found when I start pulling out the brewing equipment.
Wait 'til you see a guy with roadrash when wearing synthetics. There is a reason leather, denim and sheepskin lasted so long as the ONLY thing to wear on a motorcycle.
I could tell you stories about flash fires at refineries and the guys who di NOT follow the guidelines for what to wear under their FRC (Fire Resistant Clothing). All I need say is 65% nylon and testicles.
