Beware toilet smokers

While you are secretly smoking in the toilet and laughing gleefully at the thought of fooling the crew,all of a sudden there is a decompression the following will take place:

The oxygen mask in the toilet drops from the compartment and in a modern aircraft like the B777,B747 and A380,oxgen will be released through the mask without even you pulling it. The moment the oxgen comes into contact with your lighted cigarette,it will ignite and you will be blown out through the toilet door and land in the cabin like a smoked salmon or worst still you may even be a burnt bbq charsiew/pork. If you are lucky and survived and the aircraft is not on fire you will be apprehended and spend your whole life behind bar.
The only time you may avoid the above from happening if there is a decompression is to politely ask the cabin crew for a toilet that does not have any oxygen mask.

i am not sure if that can really happen, cos firstly...can u start a fire with just amber from a cigarette, i.e no naked flame?
And if that is possible, what about the early B747 days when we had smoking in the aft cabin...were we all risking death should decompression happen?

Something similar has happened before. IIRC, a Air canada plane encountered smoke in the cabin in mid flight, the smoke gets thicker and thicker and passenger was having difficulty breathing. The pilot landed the plane and as the door is in automatic mode, once open, the chutes are deployed. But not all pax are able to get off fast and due to influx of oxygen into the cabin, the whole cabin burst into flames all of sudden, killing about 40 pax. During flight, no flames was spotted, only smoke that gets thicker and thicker.
