Hello all, I had an experience I'd like to share, I was checking by pc's temperature and found it very high, concluding I needed to do some clean up maintenance, I took out my trusty air duster and sprayed it on the components, when I sprayed my processor I caused a fire flash that engulfed my entire face and arm, luckly other than burnt hair and no eye lashes, I came out of it with minimum burns, I never would have thought this could happen until I sat down and refreshed my basic chemistry class knowledge and remembered how dangerous heat and fine particles of dust can be highly flamable. I now know to let the pc cool down.

Not a story I made up my friend, it happened. I only posted so no one else gets injured.

I would think that some basic common sense would tell you that most substances that are contained under pressure are flammable. Even Duster when exposed to high temperature. Good story though.
