  1. I like fire. I play with rockets. I designed a liquid oxygen / kerosene high performance rocket that I’ll build once I get the money. I once dove into a pool burning with gasoline. My boss has ammonium perchlorate in his basement. I work part-time for a company that builds alcohol and liquid oxygen rockets.

    I am fire. All others are impostors.

  2. I deeply respect this plan of hiring a fire chief. Mr. REDACTED seem to have it in the bag so far, but I would not let the review of his references slip. He almost sounds too good to be a mere mortal. Did he not let this slip in his request to be FIRE MAN, not simply a fireman. He might show up with a cape (dangerous around fires according to The Incredibles) and definitely with an F on his chest.

    Next thing you know he would have an F – Monday night Brewery sticker on his car. This did not seem to be a favorable association on stickers for our former president. Does the brewery really have to become political for something so simple as fire? Follow the logic guys…
