An awful lot of interesting, weird things seem to be happening at gas stations these days. It seems like all an enterprising (and fearless) freelancer has to do is camp out at a gas station in an interesting, vibrant, diverse area, with a mobile devise, and start reporting online about what he sees. Of course, he’d better be strapped, or he’ll find himself liberated from his device, and maybe his life, in a hurry.

DETROIT, Mich. — If you ever see a spider on your car at a gas station, don't do what this man did.
This man in Detroit tried to kill a spider on his car using a lighter.
The gas caught fire and the flames spread to the gas pump.
Luckily, the man got out of the way and wasn't hurt.
He then moved his car and grabbed a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze.
He apologized saying he's deathly afraid of spiders.
