Yes it is but when you are in the middle of nowhere and the bead is broken from the rim a small shot of ether into tire through bead and the application of a match will seat the bead and inflate the tire enough to get you to a better place. Just my $.02.

I totally agree. I've heard that when the ether explosion cools, the tire can shrink. It's good to have a compressor (even small one) and inflate as soon as possible. Within a minute is good.

When he said "better place" I assumed he meant the explosion would kill you and send you to Heaven.
Since there are other places to go, I don't think too many people are going to try that trick.

I missed that. Maybe the gentleman will comment as to what he meant. I'm guessing you're right.

You should never guess that I'm right...
I am wrong more often than there are even possibilities.
Here is a pre-GPS example:
I'm at an intersection and can only go left, right or straight.
There are two ways I can go wrong and one way I can go right.
How many attempts to I make before I get it correct?
The maximum number should be three... but I can improve on that and make the same incorrect choices several times before eventually I take the correct alternative.
Once I was leaving someone's house and walked right into their closet.
I was so embarrassed I thought momentarily about trying to just punch myself through the wall.

Ah, thanks for the further understanding. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who's made a wrong turn or two.
I'm remembering a friend who was so pleased with the deadbolt on his apartment door. The closet had another door to the hall with skeleton lock, I pointed that out to him. And his window to the fire escape had no latch. Sigh.

Yep.
I see a lot of secured doors right next to unsecured windows.
Only once did someone break into my house.
They ended up not even taking anything.
My stuff must have been even worse than theirs.

I drove around West Alabamastan last Monday and Tuesday with Zap The Wonder Helper to run some service calls when that woman in the GPS unit had me driving all over the place and I was ready to slap that bitch. o_O

I had a crush on a cute gal back when I was in college and she affected me in an odd way. On the way to her house one day, I pulled up to a stop sign and sat there waiting for it to change. Proof positive that brain farts happen at any age. ^_^

Nope, not heaven but to the nearest source of air for the tire if you drive slowly and sanely. Never could get much air in a tire just using lung power but the ether will leave you with somewhere between 15 and 20 lbs. Not ideal but again will get you to a better place than in the middle of nowhere with a flat/busted bead.

On this one:

About 1:15 or so, we see how the tire shrinks as the ether fire cools. I wonder if someone using just ether along side of the road would have the tire shrink like this? I've not tried it, so not sure if just ether would get you down the road?

I think SM wrote that he saw it on the "Ice Road Truckers" TV series? The operative word is "ice" which is cold as I recall. Everyone knows that truck drivers who work in cold climates are a bunch of ice holes. I wouldn't dream of inflating a tire with ether here in the semitropical climate of Alabamastan but I've used Freon and CO2 to inflate tires. I doubt that ether would be all that dangerous in near Arctic conditions, open air and a breeze blowing. On one occasion, I ran out of gas on the Interstate a mile from an exit and gas station. I was in a 1980 Dodge van so I removed the dog house(engine cover) next to me, removed the air cleaner then dug through the junk in the back to see what I had in aerosol can that was somewhat combustible. I found cans of telephone housing cleaner, carburetor cleaner and starting fluid. I sprayed the phone cleaner into the carb then started the engine and drove the van down the shoulder of the highway at a low speed as I sprayed cleaner a little at a time until it ran out. I switched to carb cleaner and was able to reach the exit, coast down it, roll up to the service station then use starting fluid to get up the driveway to the gasoline pump. I wasn't so disabled at the time and could have walked but I'm lazy and really didn't have the time to go through trudging around with a gas can. ^_^

Yes, I've seen IRT guys do ether. And on a few Youtube videos. I've never tried it myself.
I helped a friend move a VW (rear drive) auto one time with WD-40, using much the technique you describe.
Working inside the motor cover of a van should get you there, if a bit dangerous.
Yes, most compressed gasses will inflate tires, if needed.
