"It's not that he was in any way malicious; he was a good guy in fact. It's just that he was the most careless man I have – or most likely anyone has – ever met.

"One day after work I got home and went to bed early for a snooze. After about two hours I woke up with a pounding headache, so much so that when I stood up I began to stagger. I went downstairs and what I found was truly remarkable.

"Gas was just spewing out! Thankfully no harm was done and neither of us smoke – but to this day I still think that if I didn't wake up when I did, perhaps we wouldn't have woken up at all.
