Now, my main question is how would such an explosion work? I can find news stories about natural gas explosions, and essays about hydrogen bombs, and I don't remember what all keywords I've used. This takes place in a mysterious, abandoned airport in the middle of nowhere. There is power, and the kitchen in the restaurant has an open-fire stove.
Please don't ask why there's hydrogen cyanide. He's part of the cast.
What happens when the gas hits the fire? Immediate explosion seems more like something that would happen in an action movie with Steven Seagal. I'm thinking the gas would act as a kind of wick rather than actually explode, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. As a backup plan, I thought about having the gas be in the oven, and then the heat makes it explode, but I'm not entirely sure how sound that is, either.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Crap! Thanks to lt260 for reminding me. Would the sprinklers coming on kill the fire, or make it worse?
Here we have an example of someone working through some of those details to come up with a plausible scenario.
The article touches on some of the facts and variables he took into account.

Most of all I need to know the title, but if anyone knows of an online version somewhere that would also be useful.
I'm writing about a very politically-oriented band on tour in the UK in January 1976. I've done various internet searches based around World events 1976 etc, trying to discover what sort of events were going on that they might be aware of. Any suggestions?
Great as always, guys! Thanks!
I'd like to have him to deal with fatigue, weakness, various pains, probably fever (y'know, pretty things ^^). My first choice was some type of cancer, leukemia perhaps, but my researches (Wiki, Google; cancer, leukemia, treatment) had somewhat confusing outcomes, regarding the actual treatment.
Basically, provide me with the name of a disease which fits the requirements, so I can research it. Pretty please?
EDIT: Okay guys, thank you!! XD I have quite an array of maladies now to choose from. You're awesome. ^__^
I've run Google ragged with: "victorian birthdays," "birthing days +victorian," "victorian celebrations," (and hunting narrower within those results), "victorian celebration observations," "19th century birthday," and just plain old "birthday traditions" looking for a hint of Victorian anywhere in the midst of it. It seems like there ought to be something out there, and maybe I've just been totally missing the mark with my searches. Any hints in that direction would be just as appreciated!
I'm primarily interested in the celebrations an upper middle class family might hold (if any at all), but information on how any of the class divisions might celebrate, or how birthdays were regarded by Victorian society at all, would be wildly appreciated.
My thanks in advance for your attention and time!
Edit: Question sufficiently answered for the project, and thank you all so much for the excellent help and information!
