On a different note considering the mention of Emilo Estevez, the theme of our prom next weekend is "A Knight At The Roxbury" (we are the Knights).
*So anyways, I was standing there waiting to use the pay phone.
-Yeah, he was, seriously.
*And this guy who was on the phone, turns around and tips his hat like this.
-And who do you think that guy was?
-The Mighty Duck man, I swear to God, I was there.
*Of course you were, you were the one who yelled the Breakfast Clubber's name.
-I was like, "Emilio!!!!!!!!!"
Best movie of all time right there! Thank god for Richard Grieco smashing into them with his Lambo, otherwise they would never have gotten into the Roxbury too completely woo the women of that club
Well maybe best movie was a little over the top, but good none the less
Ok, now I must be the first to congratulate ndvfdff33 on his 1,000 post.
Even though it probably wont be in this thread since he just left, but nonetheless congrats!
SO IT WAS IN THIS THREAD! HAHA
and a thread hijacked by us no less!
NOW TO CELEBRATE!
And thanks I'm going too need all the luck I can get, not too mention it's a good thing I'll be in the hospital so I can just go down the hall too get my broken finger's fixed up when the baby is out. :eek: :eek: :eek:
When is my bash-nephew-to-be due?:D
As terrible as it is that he was killed it doenst make him a firefighter killed in the line of duty. He is a junior firefighter for one, which generally means he is not recognized by the government as a fireman. That pretty much just ends it.
Another thing is a quote from the story "As it turns out, the fire call was not in Brookhaven at all."
he was responding to a call that wasn't even meant for him to respond to.
He was a civilian on a bike, who got hit by a car. It happens every day. It is sad, yes. It is also sad that he one day could have been a great fireman. But that doesnt make him an official firefighter to have his named on that wall.
My regards to all those who knew him and his family, i dont mean to be harsh, i have no problem with his name being on that wall just saying why there is no sense argueing it.
As for the topic at hand, please consider several things:
1) Career firefighters probably will not consider anyone under 18 to be a firefighter, because they don't have them in the career side of the service.
2) At 14, Chris wasn't responding to go on the trucks. he was responding to the station to buff the call.
3) Many adults don't understand the concept of using junior firefighters. even so, 14 is a very young age to be an active jr FF. I, personally, believe 16 should be the youngest to be on a department. but also remember that what the youngest age to join depends on the person.
