Chinese Villagers Bring Home Natural Gas in Giant Plastic Bags

Too poor to afford heating oil, villagers in Shandong, China, go to nearby
oil extraction facility and bring home some natural gas inside a giant
balloon:

On the morning of the 20th, when reporters first arrived, the oil
extraction machinery was operating normally, a gas canister and large
gas furnace were beside the machine with no people standing guard. At
10 am, a middle aged woman brought a large plastic bag to the machine.
The woman skillfully opened the valve to the gas and connected it to
the bag she was carrying, the plastic bag quickly rose and grew to be
a 6 meter long, 1 meter wide balloon. After about 4 minutes the bag
was full.
