OOOOHHHHH I second the whole "don't throw flour on it" thing.

My whole life I kept a flour canister near the stove and thought if there was a grease fire that was what you were supposed to do- throw flour on it. (Apparently it's supposed to be baking soda, I was wrong). So then one day I had a grease fire in a pan. I grab a double handful of flour and throw it on the pan and BOOM... fireball. Now my ceiling is on fire. I was very fortunate not to burn down my apartment building or burn off my face.

So don't use flour! I have told this story to LOTS of people who also thought flour was what you use, and I shudder to think how many more people think so!
