Don't play with fireworks inside a building.

Common sense.

There's a YouTube video out there made during the Rhode Island fire. The place went up so fast that there wasn't a rat's chance in hell for everyone to get out.

/well, get out alive

Creoena: badhatharry: This is scary. Always scope the out exits. I try not to be too far from them in a crowded building.

I'm sure it's the first thing on every clubhopper's mind when they go out


It's something that most people don't think about. It's a good habit to have whenever you get on an airplane, theatre, or a hotel. Just get in the habit of checking out where the exits are.

If they wouldn't have panicked and jambed the doorway or new about the exit behind the stage, most of them would have gotten out.

But that would be an infringement of first amendment rights; the right of expression.

Therefore, do nothing.

Who cares about these roasted iditos? They wanted to be at the club.

Only a little over 70 years since 492 people died in the deadliest night club fire in US history.

Can someone explain to me how this happens in a modern age? One would think after Beverly Hills and The Station Fire, people would have learned their damn lessons.

I hate to be "that guy," but I think it's because it's Brazil. They're probably decades behind proper building codes.

Uchiha_Cycliste: snark aside, this is horrible. I've never once considered something like this happening to me, And I've been to raves before where there were 20,000-30,000 stuffed in on one dance floor (like at the Staples Center) on New years eve.


To be fair, places like the Staples Center are designed to not burn down and/or asphyxiate you in the event of an emergency.

The Cocoanut Grove Fire - worst nightclub fire in history with 492 dead - happened just over 70 years ago, and people died for pretty much the same reasons - flammable materials (including in the air conditioning system, oddly enough) and not enough exits.

Slartibeerfest: After the RI disaster the fire safety codes changed dramatically, I foresee a similar update in Brazil's future.


You sir, are an optimist. Brazil is a shiathole among shiatholes.

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.


Bra-farking-vo! That description brought a tear to my eye. Very well done, Mr. Coffee Nerves!

Did anyone here see Movie 43? That thing was hilarious!! Critics are nuts.

Hopefully the Brazilian congress will act quickly on anti-fire legislation
 
2013-01-27 09:42:35 AM  
Holy shiat! Most of my family is from there. I've been in that gym too.
Time to call and make sure my cousins are all Ok.

The codes there are practically nonexistent.

Thank you. Now people won't think I'm just "being mean".
Americans get the tourist commercial vision of Brazil and very few ever look past that. It's a third world country that's trying to do better.

Hope your cousins are OK.

I think it's time we had a rational discussion on banning firearms.
