What a story at the gas station! Smile Thanks for sharing, Wayne! The Paul Harris' humor that we know from his DVDs Star of Magic... Paul, you look great and looking forward to more "true astonishments" magic! Cheers!

You know, I happened to show this video to a friend earlier today; I thought maybe she'd get a good laugh out of it. So after she watched it she told me that she didn't believe his story. And I said, "Oh, why is that?" And I have to admit that she did bring up a very good point. She said that Paul mentions that he drove off after he had already paid for the gas...so, in that case the fuel pump would automatically have shut off at that point and cease pumping gas to the nozzle. So technically if he drove off with the nozzle still in his gas tank and it got yanked off of the fuel pump, there would be no reason for gas to be pouring out everywhere.

Now I have no reason to believe that Paul is lying and still believe that it happened the way he told it. I just thought she brought up a good point that I hadn't considered. Any thoughts?

I think...it doesn't matter! It still made me laugh!

Sorry, but fuel being wasted doesn't make me laugh one bit, especially in this economy and the wars fought over this stuff.
