And I suppose that you've spent 20 years on construction sites and done gas piping yourself. Since I saw that frequently, I'm amazed you missed it. Soap is OK for testing, but a match will show a blue flame easier in a bigger area. Construction sites rarely have a problem with ventilation, though judgement must be used.
>large enough to allow a backlight,
Gas pipes have no oxygen in them. They don't backlight.
>Your arguements have all the nonsensical fervor of a bible thumpin
>"can't fool me with the facts" type preacher.
No, I'm the one with the experience and facts. You're stating untested common knowledge.
Take a deep breath and talk about what you know, not what you believe. You'll find a whole new world.
