[DML] Property way to jump start or charge battery



In a sort of continuing of the polatiry question I posed early, but 
with regard to charging or jump starting the car...

Should you attach the cables to the battery leads *or* should you only 
attach the positive cable to the positive battery lead and the 
negative cable to the frame of the car?  A guy at Pep Boys told me 
that if you attach cables to both battery leads, and the battery is 
old/corroded and has fumes floating around, a spark may ignite the 
fumes and you'll end up with acid exploding on your face. So basically 
by keeping the cables away from each other you'll prevent the spark 
and potential explosion.

I've never done it this way...I always attach cables to both leads and 
nothing ever happened.
