    Nice. Can you help me? I'm looking for a solid pair and with the call volume you guys have I'm guessing you use some heavy duty stuff...

    at that time, i still wore ripped acid wash jeans, complimented by a new kids on the block t-shirt, my kick ace pair of Reebok pumps, with of course my tongue hanging out, as i played b-ball like mike, all the while jamming to the tape of my favorite glam band warrant - "heaven isn't too far away", obviously.

    I live in Antartica where fighting fire is the deadliest occupation. You see a burning igloo here will melt through the ice shelf and you fall in. If you don't freeze first, you will surely be impaled by narwhals fighting for the air hole made. Your only defense is to take out your 6 D cell maglight and club your way through the beasts. My parents were National Geographic reporters who ******ed someone off. I was diapered in sealskins and ate the leftover whale blubber that was not used for the oil lamps. Baths are rare but the girl-guy ratio is enough to keep me here.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.
