well im late to the party.

too busy getting married and ****.

Nice pics though, looks like a good blaze.

Sorry to hear about the family getting burned in the fire. Its always sad to hear about kids falling victim to that sort of stuff. Hell, the other day some lady i work with's kids died in her car. 2 and 5. police are still investigating.

as for the money thing...

1) Who the hell cares?

2) How can anyone try to guage the spending ability and financial secyurity of V6_Mustang_Power's parents by a "6 grand a month" statement? If yer in an area with a lower cost of living, making 6k a month after taxes, with only 1k mortgage payment, yer in pretty damn good shape. Even if it is 6k before taxes, with a 1k mortgage and no car payments maybe dropping 1k - 1.5k for thier sons car is something they enjoy doing and can afford.

The point is unless you know everything about somebodys financial situation you cant gauge **** about thier spending ability of financial security based off a number.



Point in case.

Lets say I make over a 6,000 month before taxes. After car payment, insurance, mortgage, cellphone, food bills, water, electric, cable, trash, gas and food for 2 adults, a 7year old and a baby, there aint a whole lot to go around once all that is spent.

my buddy makes roughly 4,000 a month before taxes. His rent is half my mortgage, he has no kids, lives closer to work and does not have to commute. This guy ALWAYS has plenty of money to do what he wants to.

Unless you know everything about a persons financial situation, dont bother casting judgements about what they can, cannot, should, or should not afford, cause quite frankly its nobody's business but the people making thier money, and without all the facts of thier situation you just dont know ****.


And breaking 100,000 a year right now aint exactly easy. Im 31 years old, i have a lot of friends, a lot of educated and very intelligent friends, I have friends in management, retail, high level sales, technical careers, friends with thier own businesses, ranging between the ages of 23 and 36, and none of them break 100k a year.

Achieveable?.... yes.

Easy? No. You gotta bust your ***. Plain and simple. And most people just dont have the energy to work as hard as they need to.


and i dont know what the magical number is, but it seems it doesent matter how much you make, somehow you still just manage to get by.

I have fought a few fires in manufactured homes, aka trailers in my 27+ years on the fire department.

The older units tend to burn quicker because they are wood framed, built with barely dimensional lumber (which held the weight down for over the road transport) and contain a lot of plastics. Most of then were wired with aluminum wiring, which tends to expand and contract and is no longer allowed to be used by the national electrical code. They tend to have aluminum siding and roofs which holds in heat, which further accelerates the combustion process.
The newer manufactured homes are built to much stricter codes and standards and have smoke detection systems installed at the time of manufacture.

Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors save lives.
