justoneznot: Really sad, people need to stop using pyrotechnics in small clubs.
stratagos: I'm surprised none of the "hot young Brazilian clubgoer" headlines made it.
Mrtraveler01: Wow, and I thought the one in RI was bad.I can't believe it's been 10 years since that happened.
Silverstaff: My God. . .how many people are in a Brazillian?
Slartibeerfest: After the RI disaster the fire safety codes changed dramatically, I foresee a similar update in Brazil's future.
badhatharry: This is scary. Always scope the out exits. I try not to be too far from them in a crowded building.
Uchiha_Cycliste: Great reporting..."He said at least 200 people were injured. The cause of the fire is not yet known, officials said. The total number of victims is still unclear and there may be hundreds injured,"
Kyosuke: Uchiha_Cycliste: Great reporting..."He said at least 200 people were injured. The cause of the fire is not yet known, officials said. The total number of victims is still unclear and there may be hundreds injured,"BENGHAZI!!!!
Turfshoe: Ezekiel Corte Real, 23, was quoted by the paper as saying that he helped people to escape. "I just got out because I'm very strong," he said.
TheEdibleSnuggie: The Nina and the Pina wanted for questioning?
Uchiha_Cycliste: They even had fireworks inside the Staples Center, with multiple tens of thousands of us all packed in there.Jesus,...
Kyosuke: Or people need to stop covering the walls and ceilings with extremely flammable material.
Mrtraveler01: Uchiha_Cycliste: They even had fireworks inside the Staples Center, with multiple tens of thousands of us all packed in there.Jesus,...Yes, but I will guarantee you that the Staples Center isn't insulated with flammable material and that they didn't set off fireworks next to it.It's one thing to do it in a sports arena, it's another to do it in a regular sized building.
skinink: Regarding the RI disaster, I read somewhere that a lot of people died in the doorway of the club because as people tried to escape the fire, they would fall/accidentally get pushed down. Then the people in back of them would fall on top of them.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: In a strange way it actually pays to be a hipster.If your favorite band is a one-armed Mongolian who atonally throws discarded batteries against overstretched rubber cargo tie-downs while reciting "Mr. Belvedere" scripts with the punctuation removed and he only plays "pop-up" gigs in the kitchens of abandoned Arthur Treacher's franchises, you can be fairly sure your life will be panicked-trampling resistant.
Derwood: Was it In the Still of the Night?
Serious Black: badhatharry: This is scary. Always scope the out exits. I try not to be too far from them in a crowded building.What's an out exit? Does it differ from an in exit?
