Found a r/PavlovianSubtag
Wow that's meta
Take the 405 down to the cahuenga exit and get outta here!
At this time of day it's gonna be jammed!
Take the Slauson cutoff
You gotta be kiddin me. 🤣 This has got to be the best word to describe it.
It starts with "F" and ends with "uck": FIRETRUCK
You are scum and I adore you.
Chinese fire drill
Came for this ... Was not disappointed
Those are hot seats
> "yo, is this where you keep the firetrucks, where do ya want me to put it?"
So a watertruck fixed it?
Watertrucks are blue silly
Every time I see someone say fire truck it reminds me of [this story told by Bobcat Goldthwait. listen to the end… funniest shit! ](https://youtu.be/lcmb9258diY)
Probs one of my favorite jokes ever.
I can't help but read this in Bobcats voice.
Say fire truck!
Aww. Dammit. r/angryupvote
“wake up you fucks! I’ve brought homework!”
POP QUIZ HOTSHOT
What do you do?!
Shoot the hostage!
Damn, am I really that old to get the reference?
DONT SLOW DOWN!
Attention people, there's a bomb on this bus!!
CANS! It was just Cans.
I think it was called ''The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."
I'm confident that it's called "The Bus That Couldn't Jump"
“White Bus Can’t Jump”
Right next to “The Puppy Who Lost His Way”. Moral of the story, you get your ass out there and you find find that fucking dog!
It's a sad day right? I've got to the point in life where I don't know some of my kids slang...Makes you feel old quick.
For real, I just barely found out they’re calling hotdogs glizzies now, and I’m only 32.
I'm in my thirties and regularly say "pop quiz asshole" when talking to randomers in the pub. Each year fewer and fewer randomers realise the reference and instead think I'm being overtly rude.
If someone didn't respond with this, I knew I was lol +1
tbh that is what this legit looks like.
why is a truck full of chairs on fire?
seems like a inspection on the fire dpt readiness .
Ha ha ha. No that doesn’t happen, but I love the concept.
My guess is smoking, they might have had some fabric weaving or recently varnished and got a butt in there. With wind that goes up fast.
apparently couches are extremely flammable, so maybe chairs are the same way?
Someone give this comment an award
What a wonderful time to live in when the emergencies get delivered to you!
Work at home is really hot right now
What a terribly underrated comment.
Even firefighters are working from home.
When your car burning in GTA and you drive to a pay n spray
This is exactly what it is 😭. Or in GTAs where you could steal a firetruck and become a part time fireman
I loved being a taxi driver so much i learned the map to perfection, even took out the map after a while
I wish gta 5 gave you taxi quests more often when you're in your own cars. Happens way too rarely
Next GTA they will allow you to work for Uber
Oh boy. Can't wait for 2034
PlayStation 6 GTA5?
Look at this joker thinking we still won't be dealing with a ps5 shortage in 2036
It'll be called BÜber
This is one of my favorite gaming memories. In GTA 3 you got exponentially growing rewards for every 5 cars extinguished so I played for like an hour straight, listening to chatterbox radio, getting $2 million, then $4 million then $16 million for putting out the 100th, 105th and 110th fire.
Is doubling each time an exponential increase?
As someone who just sat their first calculus exam, I am 70+% sure it is
The firefighters still in their flops and everything 🩴
That one guy still putting his shirt on as he runs out 🤣
Love the guy who ran the opposite general direction down the hallway. I’m sure he was running to do something important but it’s a funny visual
Extremely important step in fighting any fire, making a sketch of the fire.
In case it escapes and they have to put up a wanted poster.
Fire escapes should be banned for this reason.
This thread has me in tears
‘Stop spraying water on it!! I’m trying to get the shading right on the flames!!”
I just figured there were stairs at both ends? Seems safer in case of... fire.
Don't be ridiculous. We all know "firemen" aren't affected by fire. Otherwise they'd be called "weak-to-fire-men" now wouldn't they.
[a fire at the fire station?](https://youtu.be/JsQ9Bh-uTc4)
Got to drop a dookie before you go fight the fire. Never know how long you’re gonna be gone.
"Truck on fire? FUCK THAT."
>The firefighters still in their flops and everything 🩴
Oooh thanks, I was confused by the flat-footed running-shuffling thing going on and didn't think to look at the shoes
Sub two minute response though. Gotta respect the hustle.
This makes me want to memorize exactly where all the fire stations are in my area.
You should definitely learn at least the triangle around your house. Hospitals and liquor stores too
Why triangle? Why not a circle?
Because all you have to do is hire an investor that will hire an investor!
Yup. Just need to know a guy who knows a guy.
A circle is just an infinitely-sided triangle.
I’m not smart enough to know if this is true or not.
Think about how round a pentagon looks. A hexagon is a little rounder than that. Now an octagon. Every point you add makes the shape more round. If you add infinite points, you get a circle.
Yeah but that has nothing to do with a triangle. An "infinitely sided triangle" is an oxymoron. A triangle has 3 sides, per definition.
You could say something like "a circle is just infinite triangles, side by side".
Look at this guy, calling me names for nothing
barofa deez nuts
I don’t necessarily think this is true… hear me out here…
Assuming infinities, you could also infinitely “zoom in” and it would still have points on it, infinitely of course, but assuming you can infinitely zoom in it is more of a never ending system of infinite circle looking “points,” but a true circle has zero points.
I hope I explained my thought process right haha! Correct me if I am wrong please!
You've encountered a cool but weird issue in the way we generally imagine infinity! Infinity is not just a really really big number, it is literally not finite. There is no point that you could reach and see individual points on the circle.
Imagine a hotel with an infinite number of rooms. It gets fully booked, every single room is full. Now, another hotel across the road opens also with infinite rooms. Enough guests travel from hotel 1 to hotel 2 to fill both of it. Yet both hotels are now full! This is because you cannot make an infinity into a smaller amount.
Now to apply this to the circle, every time you zoom in on a section you'd see an infinite number of points disappear to the left and right of the screen. Even though you're removing an infinite number of points to the sides, there's still an infinite number *more* left to zoom in on. There is no infinite level of zoom at which you see a single point, even if you zoom forever. This is why a circle can be said to have an infinite number of points, instead of zero. Its an interesting quirk! I hope this explanation helps a little
it's actually the opposite, a circle is defined as an infinite amount of points a fixed distance (the radius) from a central point. so no matter how much you "zoom in" it will always be round, unless you want to get deep into the meaning of limits and infinity
I mean technically not. It's an infinitely sided polygon yes, bit that literally is opposite to a triangle, which has a defined number of sides, at 3.
Maybe they mean Police/firefighter/euthanasia?
Why did you say euthanasia as both the first and third item?
Left: Police station.
Straight: Fire station
Right: Liquor + Health Clinic.
No hospital til the next city.
And while you are at it? Smack "Heart starter -name of your area- map" into google. I found one 100 meters from my local store. I hope I never need this information, but if I do? I know where to point someone to go fetch while I try to CPR.
Great idea. But it returned retail stores that want to sell me medical supplies, including defibrillator
Huh! Come to think of it, I have never checked for a national one of these in USA. And the more I google, the more frustrated I become. How on earth is this not a thing...
Dunno about other countries but in Denmark most heart starters are registered so when you call for help they are able to tell you where the closest is, so that normal people don't have to have figured out it would be smart to know.
We also have a concept called heartrunners that you can sign up for then if you are close by an emergency you get pages on your phone and asked to fetch a heart starter and bring it to the emergency, just to make it even more efficient when possible.
Sounds excellent! Way progressive for the US!
Figure the more we share the idea the bigger the chance others get the benefit too
Yeah, I assume that the emergency responders has a list of it, but since the information is available, and I have a limited range of places I am? I memorized them. It is unlikely to shave off more than a minute or so at best, but it can be a long minute to have information relayed in all directions.
And damn! Seems like Heartrunners started in Sweden, spread to you guys, and somehow is not a thing here in Norway. Not that I would been able to contribute, but I have at least a dozen people I could prodded towards it if it was up and running here.
For when you're driving around and just happen to catch on fire out of the blue?
Smart man 👌
That's what I came here to say! 😅
If you notice smoke coming from your cargo and you speed up, you’re literally fanning the flames, creating a high speed fireball. That makes the calculation to stop or go to the firehouse really difficult.
I don’t know. If his restaurant chairs were burning, he could have called the Fire Dept to come to him.
Why take the time to load all the burning chairs onto a flatbed truck and drive a few blocks to the firehouse just to save a few bucks on a phone call and a “housecall”? /s
Please support yourself local volunteer firefighters.
The guy picked up the fire and tried to put it with the rest of the fire, duh.
Blocking the exit of a fire department with a burning vehicle, I don't know either.
I mean... We don't yet know how the fire started.
I'm going with wood furniture leaning on a behind-the-cab exhaust pipe...
I dunno, driving a burning truck around on public streets seems pretty fucking stupid to me.
I'm a little curious how that furniture turned into a blaze. Somebody flicked a cigarette butt maybe?
That's my guess, dry old wooden furniture and a cigarette butt that got stuck in there somewhere, most likely from the driver.
Man that's gotta be some terrible luck. Even in controlled studies cigarette butts lit piles of dry hay on fire only 33% of the time.
Like that's a good number
"It's only gonna burn everything to the ground a third of the time. Everyone gets two cigarettes then we should be golden!"
Golden brown. Not burned. Just right.
Dry hay with direct contact to a burning butt is probably the easiest thing a cigarette can catch on fire accidentally, that’s all that means. Like, everything gets way harder from there. Like a butt out the window that happens to hit old furniture at just the right spot that a flame ignites but also just the right spot to avoid any wind. I’m not advocating for throwing used butts out the window, I think it’s asinine, but I think what he means by that fraction is even in perfect scenarios for a butt to light something it doesn’t happen nearly as often as you’d think. I think, at least
Lol you're right, 99% chance it was him
It was probably freshly lacquered too, which would make it very flammable.
flammable and inflammable mean the same thing? What a country
Yup, I was just being a smart ass, or dumb ass. Which can also mean the same thing, depending on context
Seized brakes often cause vehicle fires
It looks like a setup.
It is, there are added scenes. The guy drives up, they put it out, everything else in between is filler and filmed at another time.
Yep, looks like a promotional video.
It looked just piled on there, could have been running on the wheel.
Fire sale at the furniture store?
Linseed oil can spontaneously combust on rags
I love how it turns out to be Jed Clampett’s truck
That was his first mistake, soaking all that furniture in bubblin' crude.
Oil, that is. Black gold, Texas tea.
Well the first thing you know old Jed's a millionaire
One guy said "y'all got it!" and went the other way down the hall lol
He went to make nuggies for the bois when they were finished
He was waddling like he came out of a restroom without toilet paper. Can't effectively help out with a dirty bum I guess.
I mean all his buddies are holding handheld bidets right?
Personally I prefer a much more powerful stream than what mere firehoses are capable of
One guy gotta watch the phone in case a call comes in. Also nuggies
I'm sorry sir we cannot accept deliveries to the front door can you please go around to the service entrance
Working from Home. Firefighter edition
Underrated comment 😂
How to get a free carwash...
The real LPT is always in the comments.
Shit. I forgot to roll-up the windows.
Doesnt matter you get a free interior detail
911, what is your emergency?
My truck is on fire!
Would that be a fire to go or to bring in?
"It's going to be a $9.00 convenience fee for going to you"
Ok now imagine this but with a truck bed full of weed and now you got 2 idiots in my town
They where too high to even notice they where on fire, they only noticed after the police pulled them over
Sorry, are we still imagining, or did you actually light them on fire?
Did the police stop to dance?
Here's what happens when you actually go looking for solutions in the right place.
I’ll see myself out…
Wow a real Chinese fire drill
Those Chinese work efficiently.
Beyond lucky! But kudos for the way he got there 10/10!
I saw this happen in real life a few months ago. A dump truck went flying past me on a back road with the rear brakes on fire and the bed starting to go up, pulled into the nearby fire station and when I went past in the other direction a whole later, they’d put it out.
Definitely saved that truck!
Quick thinking there
One evening in Chicago we were walking home from a bar past a fire station. Something smelled like burning garbage and plastic. We looked and the plastic garbage "wheelie bin" for the fire station was clearly on fire. We stood there for a minute as though there should be some magic process by which fire fighters know that there is a fire near that station (as in, on the edge of the parking lot of the fire station.) Nope. So I walked in to find someone to tell them that their garbage was on fire. Walked into the main garage area with the trucks. "HELLO?" Nothing. I heard some sound from off to the side and headed up stairs to their "dorm" type area. There I saw a fire fighter pissing into a urinal with a cigarette in his mouth. "Uh, I think your garbage can is on fire." He replied something like "OK, thanks." I headed back out to re-join my friends. A minute or so later that guy and another fire fighter walked out with some sort of hand-pumped extinguisher device. They saw the smoking, now slightly-flame emitting garbage can and headed over to extinguish it. So we went back to walking home.
My guess is someone in the fire station put a not-fully-out cigarette in the trash.
in french we have a expression that fit it well : Fumer comme un pompier XD (smoking like a firefighter)
Gives new meaning to hotrod.
That guy still putting his shirt on as he skids out the door made me lol hard. Not even sure why. So many possible implications
-Hey, I've got a problem with my car.
-This is the fire department sir
“Yo I’m burnin here!”
“Quick get in!”
“I don’t usually go like …”
“Get in get in!”
“Where we going?”
“We’re going to a forest so you can burn real big”
“Hey alright. I like going to the forest”
“Hey what the hell!? This isn’t the forest!”
Ill just set this over here with the rest of the fire.
I scrolled way too far for this.
I HEARD YOU BOYS LIKE FIRE!!!
Smarter move than what my dad did.
When I was a young child, our car's engine caught fire whilst we were driving and my father's instinct was to immediately drive it into a petrol station to use their fire extinguisher.
The poor guy working there ran out so fast and pushed the car straight back out again!
OMG I saw something like this happen! It was in about 1976-1979 or so in or near Brockport, NY.
I was about 7 years old and I and my parents were visiting my older brother in college there. We had dinner at some local restaurant but just as we were walking into the place, a beat up old car, likely owned by some college student, came screaming around the corner and into the parking lot of the fire station directly across where we were. His car had flames billowing out from underneath the car. The driver kept out just before the car was engulfed in flames.
Cool stuff for a kid to witness!
Lol the slippery floor, they cant even rush in an emergency.
“Yeah we don’t take walk-in’s, gonna need to schedule you an appointment. 3 weeks from now sound good?”
Only in China will a truck with wooden chairs catch on fire while driving on the road
That’s the most effective way i’ve seen someone put out a fire
That guy who was coming out of the bathroom mid shit was glorious
Chinese Fire Drill
Guy in the hall like
see you later fools I gotta poop!
*"Have you ever wished to be a fireman but you're too lazy to get out of a house?!
Then i got good news for you ..."*
