Dog I stayed in this house in Tennessee for half a year. During the winter when it got cold as fu*k, you had to light the pilot for the heater to heat the house. sh*t had my shook as fu*k, for a week straight I played dumb and had my neighbor light it for me but would conveniently walk away from it before he lit it because, "Oh I forgot I gotta do this..." Then I'd speed walk to my door and open that bi*ch and take cover behind it in case that sh*t exploded.
Finally I looked it up and figured out how it could become dangerous and was lighting it on my own the next few days. But yeah, that sh*t had me shook big time at first, I swore it was gonna blow up. I'm from Florida, we don't fu*k with pilot lights around here. I had to do the same for the stove too btw (in Tenn.) fu*k Tennessee.
