    So who won the All Star game last night, and is it an indication of who will win the World Series?

    Ya know...I don't think this thread exists. The poster's info shows 0 (zero) posts in the profile info. So, I guess we're not having this discussion.

    But...how about Pujols getting left on the bench?! And Rowand getting the PH time?!?! I'm a Phillies guy...but wow.

    How many times has the AL won in a row now? Besides the tie in Milwaukee in '02?

    Get used these typical responses. Some people like to think they are smarter than you and to prove it, they give stupid responses, nice one Elmer, as in What's up Doc. Then again, this is a thread in the Tactics section .... Einstein there is more than likely clueless.

    Myself, I'm going to ask you what are you asking here and what is the purpose? What kind of lite are you looking for, you can get LED lights for less than $30.

    Only kind of LITE that I have ever seen is made be Miller Brewing.

    How many times has the AL won in a row now
    I think 10.

    And if anyone can figure out what JrFF24 is talking about....maybe they'll get an answer.

    I get my wife to ride on the hood turning the flashlight on and off as fast as she can in front of a red bottle, while my little girl hollers "wooooooooooooooo woowoowoo wooooooooooooooo woowoowoo wooooooooooooooooooo" out the window.

    Dude, you are seriously cheap! Won't even spring for a red flashlight cover? But I can't fault you for saving the $$$ to buy your tickets to the game and have some beer money left over. Nice call.

    The red bottle is about 80 years old, so it makes me feel like I have a true antique fire light on my emergency response unit. The siren is fairly new.

    Thanks for the random but I am a big baseball fan anyway AL won as usual 5-4 but the NL was coming back I cant believe the LaRussa left Rowand in instead of his own guy Pujols I think is better but Rowan has a 349 BA with RISP

    Well this young grasshopper is off to a good start.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Amazing. You finally decide to show your face in the tactics section, (you know, with that great IQ and worlds of experience), and you pick a thread that has NOTHING to do with tactics. (although according to your theory, this has about as much to do with tactics as the other crap you tried to post).

    Judging by your nickname, you are a Junior Firefighter. You do not need one. I do not care how badly off your dept is. You are an observer/gofer. Once you are 18 (or 21 depending on the local laws and regs), and a certified Firefighter, then concern yourself with an interior light.

    If you are worrying about a light, then I guess you know how to follow couplings out of a building, or how many feet of preconnect are on your first, and second out apparatus? Why lightweight construction, and baloon frame construction are so dangerous? Know all your depts streets, where the plugs are, and how to do basic firefighting tactics like they are the back of your hand?

    And for the record, get a Whelen Dual Talon. Anything less then that and you are wasting your money.

    BLSboy, don't waste your time. It's a troll. See also: http://forums.firehouse.com/showthread.php?t=92302

    I love the irony that HT was the only one to give a serious response. Uh, dispatch to HT, we WERE smarter than the troll. You, however, were not. Surprise.

    I gave the kid (troll) the benefit of the doubt, since I had not seen the link you had shown.

    So did I. But it doesn't have any extra lights on it, just the factory standard.

    Buying a light and siren would have been much cheaper than getting married and having a child. I mean all those gifts for anniversaries and birthdays, the nagging, the mood swings...much cheaper to buy the light and siren. Heck you might even have enough money to buy the Whacker 10,000 model.

    You're gonna need a bit more money. The weight of the Wacker 10000 is enough that you will need to have overhead reinforcement work done on your Honda Civic. And, don't forget the large outlay for Super sized Wiring, to carry the Load of the Electrical System........
