08/16/11 288 W - + 2 - 3 Best Blog Comment Ever?


From Statter911's posting about a determined Detroit firefighter ascending a roof with a ground ladder. News helicopter captured his first and second attempt in close-camera glory. Readers are entirely polarized in their reactions to the footage. The user named Whatever adds this perspective, which might be the single best summation on blog-based reader comments yet written:
 
Blah blah blah.
I'm better than you. I've eaten more smoke. I live on a roof. You're an idiot. I'm smarter. I like PPV. Me too. I think that's stupid. No you're stupid. Try being a real firefighter. Get your head out of the standards and journals. Try being a modern firefighter. Get bent hairbag. Why don't you read something from this century? I'm a fire instructor. So am I. The job is dangerous. People are dangerous. You're a fat slob. Get a grip. Get a clue.
Have I summed this and most other comment threads up well enough?
What a bunch of whiny little bitches. You remind me of my 7 year old nephew and his friends.
Every department does their own risk benefit analysis (whether they admit that is what it is or not). The analysis for Detroit that can afford to throw dozens of firefighters at a two story frame is different than for the department that shows up with a ten guys for the same job. Both departments get the job done. They just do it differently. That doesn't make it wrong. It just makes it different.
Not that I think I'm going to change the minds of any of you fire service bigots; I just needed to vent.
I'm quite certain there's somebody who will tell me I'm doing it wrong….




Awesome…

Guess those are some of the thought balloons that float around the day room, when firefighters are having non-anonymous conversations on these topics!
