What would you do for simple gas to cook, or heat your home during the winter? Would you be willing to fill a giant bag full with natural gas and carry it into your home, at the risk of, well, exploding? Because that’s what villagers in the Shandong Province of China are doing.
The villagers come to the oil extraction facility to fill the massive gas bags because they’re too poor to afford other means of heating and cooking gas, and they aren’t allowed to connect lines to the oil field. So instead they carry around the giant bags of explosion. According to people who live in the area, they last for about five days before they have to be refilled.
