A Very Tried and True Method 

Sometimes you can, and should, argue with results.

A New Zealand man wound up in the hospital after an explosion on his boat. Paramedic Chris Deacon described the incident thusly:

“[The man] smelt gas and confirmed that there was gas by lighting a match. Which is a very tried and true method of finding gas. Unfortunately, it is not a very good method.”

Well-put, Mr. Deacon.
