It wasn't funny for the workers at the jack in the box at Decatur and vegas, or the BK at trop and pecos, or the mcd's, or at the MGM grand, or at countless other structure fires that originated in the kitchen cooking equipment or electrical! That's not even counting the ones I've personally seen evacuate due to smoke from any number of various electrical appliances in kitchens.
BTW, I never said it was a primary concern.
I watched that jack in the box burn from my work, they were doing some welding or something on the roof before that.
Watch the first 30 seconds or so of this video for kitchen fires
Structure fires are so uncommon, I'm not going to bother replacing the batteries in my smoke and O3 detectors. Electrical shorts and overloads are so uncommon, I'm going to remove the GFIs and breakers from my house and just hard wire everything. Vehicle collisions are so few and far between, I'm going to remove my airbag fuses (actually did this for when I'm driving with car seats up front in the jeep) and stop wearing my seatbelt. Eye injuries are so infrequent, I'm not going to wear my safety glasses when I grind, hammer, or weld stuff.
Get the point? They're extreme examples(some of them,) but however infrequent a potential threat may occur, it's never stupid, funny, or irresponsible to do little things that can keep you and your family safe and alive!
The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

This is actually a good idea, you never know when you may have to pull a lamp cord to use as an impromptu electrical interrogation device before the wussy cops swoop in to make arrests. Word to the wise though, don't use fluorescent fixtures after the ballast. That causes marks to appear on the perps body and will have the "company" looking for answers and ultimately a black mark on your otherwise flawless performance record.

Go to ANY article online discussing it... Liberals all say we hate obama and 95% of the rest of the replies are concealed carry dorks hoping they cross paths which makes me laugh cause they'll likely be waking up wondering what happened and where their gun is since they were sleeping on the sidewalk when it got stolen...

Exactly... Which is why I'm asking... WTF do people really think they're going to do? I mean, unless you're drawing and aiming at every quesionable person that passes by you... STFU about your badazz self and your hip holstered toy imo... The comments on facebook by people and in the articles are hilarious right now. Bunch of rambos out there, no wonder you EDC people have the image you do. LOL
Not specifically speaking about anyone in this thread at all... Purely based on the endless comments everywhere right now.
Power, statisically, show me how many kitchen fires occur annually in vegas vs. the amount of kitchens that exist if you're really that concerned. Curious if it's even .001%... I bet Merrick can get one of his slaves on campus to wrangle up some research info... Let me guess, you watched the great white concert video from 10 years ago recently also? Not gonna lie, at bigger venues, I do tend to hang near doors only cause of that video... But seriously, at dinner???
I really feel my hobbies are way more scary then living day to day life which is part of why these rambo's talk is so funny to me! Hell, one of the two people outside of my family that I truly idolize in life was killed Friday participating in my hobby and he was only 30y/o. I'm not going to change a single thing about how I do what I do thoug. Last I heard, we're all gonna die one day...
Still doesn't explain all these macho dudes that think they're going to shoot the dude before they're on the ground out cold... Gun or no gun, being aware of your surroundings is one thing, the gun isn't what's helping you do that. I'm just finding it really funny all the macho talk about this or that...
I'm with you on this one..
1. Incredibly dumb "game"
2. Someone would have to be SERIOUSLY paranoid (i.e. hyper alert ALL THE TIME) to NEVER get blindsided. I don't care how careful you are, unless you completely give up any semblance of a quality of life, you are susceptible to the idiocracy of someone else. I don't care how macho you are or how many guns you have, unless you are said loser with nothing better to do with your life than constantly look over your shoulder and worrying about what's around the next corner.. you are a target.
That being said, yeah.. situational awareness is HUGE. I have a habit of making sure to not allow myself to be put into situations I am not comfortable in, but I am never in complete control of everyone around me. I do like guns.. but as a hobby, not a lifestyle.
Now 'scuze me, me and dmgiff are gonna go bust some caps yo.
In my world, "EDC" means Electric Daisy Carnival. It has taken me most of the night, off and on, to figure out what I think you guys are talking about... Every Day Carry? I kept thinking about the heater I bring to the Electric Daisy Carnival - A Raven .25 with the serial numbers filed off. It has to be small to be concealed under a Fuschia sequined banana hammock and a purple cape. I carry my extra clips with uranium-tipped rounds on a bandolier under the cape. Just to reiterate; I never leave my sweet crib without bein' all tooled up just in case some of these little punk-*** *****ez wanna try the knockout game with me.
