Re: gas explosions

"What gas oven doesn't contain a thermo-couple that cuts the gas when the pilot goes out?"

An IoT one, that instead relies on being told to turn out the pilot light when it receives word from a centralized cloud infrastructure that the barcode-embedded pilot light turnout point specified on the packaging has been reached. Because complicated and connected is ALWAYS better, obvs.
