Happy 20th...but you will have to wait another 4 years before you can legally have a drink...

So if the firefighters have to work 8 hours shift today will the ones who work the night shift still go to sleep or do they have to stay awake?

I never understood the blimp ride policy. I guess you have to know someone to get a ride. I had a father who worked 48 years at Goodyear...told no ride for him...What a money maker for Goodyear if they actually offered rides to the public. Maybe they could actually see a profit every year. And by the way the upper management could get more raises!!

To answer y'alls question, my source says that, yes they will sleep. They will also work 32 hrs straight. So they will sleep twice.
