    Cool

    [QUOTE=scfire86;846502]There's a reason why you're a hillbilly and I'm not.

    Do a records request and get the facts for yourself. Or maybe you just like to prove your ignorance.[/Q

    We all can't be blessed!

    A hillbilly went hunting one day in Oklahoma and bagged three ducks.
    He put them in the bed of his pickup truck and was about to drive home when he was confronted by an ornery game warden that didn't like hillbillies.


    The game warden ordered to the hillbilly to show his hunting license, and the hillbilly pulled out a valid Oklahoma hunting license.


    The game warden looked at the license, then reached over and picked up one of the ducks, sniffed its butt, and said, "This duck ain't from Oklahoma. This is a Kansas duck. You got a Kansas huntin' license, boy?"


    The hillbilly reached into his wallet and produced a Kansas hunting license. The game warden looked at it, then reached over and grabbed the second duck, sniffed its butt, and said "This ain't no Kansas duck. This duck's from Arkansas. You got a Arkansas license?"


    The hillbilly reached into his wallet and produced an Arkansas hunting license.
    The warden then reached over and picked up the third duck, sniffed its butt, and said this ain't no Arkansas duck. This here duck's from South Carolina. You got a South Carolina huntin' license?" Again the hillbilly reached into his wallet and brought out a South Carolina hunting license.

    The game warden was extremely frustrated at this point, and he yelled at the hillbilly "Just where the hell are you from?" The hillbilly turned around, bent over, dropped his pants, and said, "You tell me, expert

    Now Trotter, all fire will eventually go out, whether we have our bunkers on or not!

    You think that your hillbilly comment warranted a great response? I tend to think it got the response it deserved.

    Not that Coldfront isn't a hillbilly, of course.

    He opened the door on his being a hillbilly. Where I come from that connotes a person of little or no knowledge. Maybe in your neck of the woods it means someone of great sophistication and intellect.

    On to the question. He accused me of lying about the response rate of our reserve ff's. All he has to do to prove me wrong is do a records request with our department and put the results here. I doubt he or anyone else is willing to do that. It's easier to accuse me of lying.

    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.

    No.
    Instead of playing the role of Don King, you will now be playing Al Sharpton.

    Funny, I thought they were Acadians, not Athenians.
    Besides, to use your analogy, nobody here is a "true" FF, then, except maybe live-in guys LOL. After all, the Spartans lived, ate, breathed, and slept war and battle...hence the term "Spartan" as an adjective meaning "bare-bones" and with little "creature comfort". Spartans had no time or desire for such trivialities.
    My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."

    Voli Vs Paid.

    2 seconds scrolling to the bottom of the page.

    Never read a post on the way down here.

    Knobber, sod off.

    You have never absorbed a single thing in your life, and more as likely it will never matter if the person imparting life saving piece of information into the vacume that exists (even though nature hates vacumes) between your ears is a Voli or a paid Firefighter.

    The message will go

    ZOOM.
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.
