It just keeps getting funnier...

"If we had sensible fire extinguisher laws like they do in England, we wouldn't have all these innocent fires getting extinguished."

"You must have done SOMEthing to provoke the fire, so you deserve whatever you get."

"Are you sure you have the judgement to know when a fire needs extinguishing? Firemen are trained for years to make those calls."

"It'll be like the Wild West, with civilians running around extinguishing barbecue grills and the smoker at Greasy Joe's Rib Joint by mistake."

"if you just allow anyone to posses fire extinguishers, the fire suppression foam will run white in the streets"

Actually what I want is one of those deadly CLASS III Halon fire extinguishers. The manufacture of which was virtually unregulated before 1984 (or something like that ;-) , but now are banned.

They were extremely effective, yet small enough to conceal in your glove box. Nowadays, I have a larger one located in the trunk of my car. In an emergency, I'd have to pull over and dig for it, but the world is a safer place without the deadly assault halon fire extinguishers.

Before you fight

Fighting for your safety may be necessary. However, if you start out fighting you cancel any other options that might be open to you. Since many attacks on women are not sexually motivated, and are designed to degrade and humiliate, talking your way out of it may be easier.

I'll be sure to ask my assailant "Excuse me, are you just doing this to degrade or humiliate me, or are you a complete Bundy-like psycho killer?" right before I shoot his ass.

Actually, Tam; I think you will ask that AFTER you shoot his ass.

Somehow I get the impression that you cowboy americans pee on hot spots even before they are fires.

Paranoids.

Spraying a fire with foam might make it hotter, so it spreads more quickly and burns you worse.

Why does anyone *need* a fire extinguisher, anyway?

You only have a fire extinguisher to [giggle] make up for something.

The captain of an airline was securing his fire extinguisher, and it just went off.

"Honey? Where did you put my trigger lock for the fire extinguisher?"

Wasn't this all covered year ago in Bradbury's Fahrenheit .357?
