Well this seems to be an ongoing theme around here now. Looks like we may have a semi arsonist on the loose. Rumor has it that fire makes him semi-erect.

First let me say that I'm glad you made it out safely of what could have easily been a very bad situation.

Now that that's out of the way though .. I have to ask, how in the hell did you not realize that my original comment was satire? I mean, go back and read it again and tell me do you really think that the post wasn't just a bit of funny sarcasm on my part? Or do I really believe that there is some serial semi arsonist running down the highway with a flamethrower lighting trucks on fire?

Oh yeah, totally in my face lol. I don't see how anyone could believe that I was being serious. She actually called me a 'fear monger' lmfao! That just made my entire night. Maybe there's some truth to what they say about truck drivers and intelligence?

Look up the definition of fear monger... and I am not a she thanks. My comment was stated because society as a whole are idiots, they would read and think you were being serious. Hence the term fear mongering.... taking a situation and blowing it up, even in comedic value can be taken as a potential threat hazard.... and honestly... I didnt think it was something to joke about... i could have easily lost my life in this incident. Also as for the intelligence of truck drivers.... go **** yourself, my level of education and certification no doubt far surpasses anyones who thinks that a traggic accident it a good source for darker than blue humor. Not only is it inappropriate, but in very poor taste.
