    Scratching my head on this one... Not saying that ur lying. Im just saying that as a black man myself, it would be quite amazing if i found another black person that actually knows,understands and uses those words. We usually just say "white people". Thats why i kind of doubt this story. One black guy says "ginny/mick" and the other black guy wasnt confused??? idk man.. But trust if its true you will never see/hear that ever again lol


    Haha yeah buddy i've never heard it either, was pretty surprised.

    Usually the black brothers in the firehouse just call me "cracker", and guess what? We all laugh!

    This might sound silly or crass, but the point is we're all tight and close knit. We see our physical differences as nothing more than just that. We're the same, we take the same risks, work the same job and.....WE ALL GOT HERE THE SAME WAY.....sadly that's going to change. A few people are getting a free ride.

    You know what kind of guys/girls work in my firehouse? Firefighters, that's who. No other distinction is important. Unfortunately....that might change too....thanks to this liberal, agenda driven judge. The big question will be.....are you from EMS, the OC or are you a quota hire. If a quota hire comes in with the right attitude, well, hopefully that comes through and they eventually earn some respect, but the process certainly has those people starting at a disadvantage.

    I haven't had the chance of running on fresh legs ...
    I work six nights a week and try to run after work every other day .. I'm curious as in how fast I can do it .. Since I'm always pushing 12-14 mins the 1.5 mile depending on how tired

Being Italian, I had to hold myself back from snapping. Just thought you guys would find this amusing/sickening that this is the attitude that some of these guys have. That's my rant, have a good weekend brothers.

    Nice man! I got the same one.

    Let me know if you get any weird looks at the gym. I'm convinced people think I'm a terrorist with that thing on. I've gotten asked "Why are you wearing a bullet proof vest?" Get ready for all the stupid questoins. Responding by saying "I'm training to be a New York City Firefighter" usually shuts em up pretty good haha. Good luck man, get steppin'!

    I didnt get anything either. IM in the bottom 800s. I'm kinda thinking that piece of information was probably misinterpreted. And that the 1200 included PHs. Because if the extra 500 on the list got anything the forum would be jumping!!! also there was what? 490 PHs and 730 OC so that number fits

    I've tried my best to stay as quite as possible on the entire PH situation. And being humble and Shuting TFU are not strong suits of mine. Im gonna break this down. I scored near perfect on this exam. I have a sickly high IQ(top 2%), as i suspect most of the people who did extremely well on the exam do as well. MY STRONG SUITS are mathematics, logic, deductive reasons and psychology. Tis why I played poker for a living for an extended amount of time.

    HERE IS WHERE UR **** BREAKS DOWN!!!!
    given both pieces of information above(both quotes). On what fu.cked up bell curve do only 2/3 of the people taken the exam pass. And other other remaining sample... Whymetoo according the numbers you listed 16.4% of the test takers score in what would have been the top 2.5% of the OC list which had over 40,000 test takers. Do you not see the problem with these numbers? The theory of large numbers tells us that there is something wrong with this number distribution.

    Moreover, the vulcan soceity has been less than fair.
    Example A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDqzKlbvRqI
    Example B. I have two FFs who are mentoring me threw the process(thank god). But one of them that lives in my building. A few days before I went to take exam 2000 one of them said to me(i just happened to bump into him), "Did you receive an email regarding the 2nd part of the test?" Well the email was forwarded to him from someone. It was an email that the vulcan society sent out. Giving information about how to score well on the second part of the exam. If I did not get a chance to look at this piece of information I most likely would have answered some of those questions differently.

    Lastly, no one really knew how the format of the exam was going to be. Most of us had some idea, but were taking the exam "in the dark". The PHs that were going to take the exam, I'm sure were taught exactly what was going to be on it. And exactly how to do well.
    Ok buddy!!! All I did was ask a question? And you guys are bashing me. Why would I give out information so you can do the same to them. The diffrent between you and I is that what the ph or you eat don't make me ****... So while you are worrying about what the next man is doing. I am doing what I have to do to get the job not sit on the Internet complaining about how it not fair ect... Some of you guys sound like little high school girls complaining. LIFE IS NOT FAIR BUILD A BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT... EVERYONE of you guys and girls know if some one gave you the chance to go to the head of the line you will not pass it up... In by the way I scored a 104 so I don't have a care in the world. Have a great night wish all you guys and girls the best!!!
    You claim to be so smart but you can't even find the forum about the PH thats taking your jobs... Your IQ is in the top 2%, 3 year old children know how to use google!!!!

    Does anyone have a ballpark guess of when the CPAT test dates will be(or at least when they will be given out) and if they will work around military orders? I'm a reservist and scheduled for a 2 week field training excercise from 7 april-21 apr and then being sent to a 3 week WMD class for the first three weeks of May. My Intake interview is the 29th of march and I'm toward the end of the list(high 600's) with a 103 and a social security number from Missouri so I'm assuming I will be one of the last groups to take CPAT. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    It is entirely possible that just emails were sent to the top 1200 and not actual packets. Keep in mind this is second hand info.

    Did you type this while running around the block? No you are on the internet asking stupid questions
    You are actually getting a hand out and taking another mans job, using your race as an excuse.
    Why do you even want this job? you obviously don't value the moral concepts behind it.
    Do you buy trophies and tell people you won them? if not then why would you want a job that was handed to you because a judge thought you were inferior. You don't find that insulting?

    Stop talking about it, no one will ever agree with you. Ever. Most would be ashamed.

    I really have to wonder if they'll be able to get a full 293 PHs into the academy. I don't know who would want to go through all of this if they're already in their 40s and established in a different career, especially when you can just take the $$ and run. That said, I have to assume the department's stance on it will be "all we had to do was hire 293, not push 293 through the academy."

    Trust me when I tell you this. They won't even get 150.... Unless there's a side agreement where they will get priority treatment at the rock....
