Oil fires: You can't use water on oil fires as the oil will float on top of the water and spread the fire. Use either CO2 or chemical or halon unit. Electric: CO2 is NOT reccommended if power is still on. the current could follow the vapor stream back up and cause injury. the best course is to make sure that the current is OFF!!!! Then use any type of unit handy. If you can't turn the power off, use a chemical unit for safety's sake.
philosophy did extinguish myth, but in many ways myth led to philosophy. philosophy was around a long time before it was called philosophy and was originally people trying to explain the world around them. why they are there, where they came from, the difference between right and wrong, etc. in ancient societies that lacked the scientific knowledge of today and these questions were answered through myths that explained the reasons things happened. as people's knowledge grew philosophers again examined the same problems and came up with new and more scientific answers to these myths. philosophy extinguished myth because it saught to solve the problems associated with it. in a way it was the beginning and the end.
