    So my assumption is static electric spark, but who would of thought bubble wrap so combustible

    Well to burn you need a 14:1 ratio, and bubble wrap is largely air. That plastic must be the same stuff ping pong balls are made of (those bitches are SUPER combustible). Wouldn't surprise me, but man, that must have been a hell of an ignition arc.

    Ya never know how much off-gassing some plastics are capable of...
    We were doing holiday decorations at work, someone noticed some of the tree ornaments had a fairly pungent chemical odor.

    Someone grabs the photoionization meter (10.6 eV lamp) and we break one of the ornaments open. 325ppm! :rofl:

    I saw that on Reddit, this comment seemed like the best explanation.

    “They use butane or pentane gas to make the foam. It is injected into the die right before it extrudes out. Product has to vent for a period of time to release the flammable gas before shipping it out. My guess is they rushed it along and the flammable gas built up in the enclosed space of the truck”

    Meh. F is useful in having greater precision in measurement.

    Sure in science C makes things easier. It's worse to live with though.

    I take it y'all also don't like base 60?
