Wow. I inadvertantly created a shitstorm here. I just stated something that I knew from firefighting, and everybody had to start throwing rocks.

This is why I gave up firefighting, and volunteering for anything. Everyone has to show you how much more smarter/experienced/politicall y connected than you are. Anymore, if anybody wants my help, they better have their checkbook in their hand. Serving the general public is not worth my time because they seldom show any appreciation.

Yea that's why you won't tell anyone in here. If you were really a firefighter you wouldn't be sitting in your basement having a hissy fit over every article. Get off your butt, leave your computer alone, and IF you're really a firefighter, maybe you should go to the gym or something so you can stop being like the pimply fat people you talk about. No one likes or is listening to you bud.
