Me mind on fire
Me soul on fire
Feeling hot hot hot...

I know, I'm going to hell in a handcart.

jaybeezey: Uchiha_Cycliste: 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.

That's all true. But if (god forbid) something did somehow go wrong and a big ire did break out... I mean, we are squeezed in there like sardines on the main dance floor, especially at midnight.

Try not going to dumb shiat raves and listening to shiatty music. It can save your life.


Yeah, I've never really been one to do dumb shiat at raves. And honestly I think my raver days are behind me. The last event I went to the massive "White Wonderland" on New Years, I realized that as much as I enjoyed the drinking and dancing I would have preferred listening to the awesome music but riding my bike. I do think my time has passed, and I'll stick to clubs every now and again from here on out. And maybe EDC every once in a while. Man that's fun. Been to the one in an Bernadino, the one at the Coliseum when Oakenfold headlined. It was crazy my gf (at the time) and I woke up in Sunnyvale at 8am drove to LA, got into EDC when it opened at 4pm partied our asses off until 4am (close) and drove back to Sunnyvale. One hell of a day and night... good times.

StormChaser: spawn73: bluenovaman: DoctorCal: bluenovaman: Communist? You doctors always get the best drugs...

You shouldn't use phrases you don't understand, then. "Second world" doesn't mean what you think it means.

Asshole says what?

"The second world refers to the former communist-socialist, industrial states (formally the eastern bloc), the territory and the influence of Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. "

Yeah, keep that fascade up dumbo.

If you're going to quote Wikipedia, how about you quote the entire paragraph instead of just the part that supports your side??

Link :

The second world refers to the former communist-socialist, industrial states (formally the eastern bloc), the territory and the influence of Union of Soviet Socialist Republic. During the second world war, there were nineteen communist countries; after the fall of the Soviet Union, only five communist countries remained: China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea and Vietnam. Along with "First World" and "Third World", the term was used to divide the nations of Earth into three broad categories. In other words, the concept of "Second World" was a construct of the Cold War and the term has largely fallen out of use since the revolutions of 1989, though it is still occasionally used to describe countries that are in between poverty and prosperity, many of which are communist and former communist countries today. Subsequently, the actual meaning of the terms "First World" and "Third World" changed from being based on political ideology to an economic definition (see the terms developed country and developing country). This might also cause semantic variation of the term between ascribing a region's political entities and its people
It would appear that bluenovaman was just trying to point out that this part of Brazil is slightly less of a shiat hole than the rest of the country.


?

He said second world, not first or third world. Second world hasn´t changed meaning.

Facts aren't a matter of sides, you can just look them up (well most people can, you did, but failed).

Tell me about it. Although the people who were most upset were the owners of this franchise that missed out on opening their restaurant there by ONE vote. They were pissed!

This is one of Brazil's worst (if not the worst) fires, which hit the Joelma Building in Sao Paulo in 1974. The death toll was between 179 and 189. Following the Joelma fire, Brazil's fire code was improved. If the death toll from this new fire is over 200, the record's been broken.

By Human Development Index (HDI), Rio Grande do Sul is on par with Qatar, and is the 5th most developed Brazilian state. The highest HDI in Brazil belongs to the Distrito Federal (HDI on par with the US or Netherlands), followed by Sao Paulo (on par with Israel), Santa Catarina (UAE), and Rio de Janeiro (Cyprus). These states, plus Mato Grosso do Sul (also Qatar) and Parana (Hungary) have higher HDIs than Brazil as a whole. Southern Brazil is the more developed part of the country.

Joelma turns out not to be Brazil's deadliest fire. It was a fire in 1961 at a circus in Niteroi, near Rio de Janeiro, which killed more than 300 people, more than Joelma (or this new fire).

CNN en Espanol reported a little while ago that bouncers wouldn't let people out who hadn't paid their tabs. If that's true, they should hang 'em.

cretinbob: 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.

What's with all the blue tubs or whatever on the roofs? It looks like people just stacked mobile homes on on top of the other. Weird ass construction.

Oh, BTW, saw Rammstein at the Oracle Arena in 2011. shiat ton of explosives, fireworks, and jets of flame, and not a god-damn spark where it wasn't supposed to be. That's what happens when you're professionals.

Of course, the good people of Brazil will call to ban nightclubs; it's the only way.

To all who are saying Brazil needs more codes, that is horseshiat. Brazil has a shiatload of codes. What they lack is enforcement. Most laws go completely unenforced; when they are enforced, the officers can usually be bribed. This is a problem made worse by Brazil's culture of corruption and cronyism, but let's not kid ourselves: a tragedy like this could happen again in any nightclub in any country at any time.

Anyone who hasn't seen the video of "The Station Fire" should go watch it. You can find it on YouTube, or in higher quality on bittorrent.

It's probably one of the most disturbing things you'll ever see but it will probably change the way you check for fire escapes when you go into public places in the future. It will likely change the speed at which you'll react if you ever find yourself in a developing emergency situation too. It's one of those things you won't forget.

skinink: Great White brought in for questioning.


Y'know, they've played out county fair two out of the last three years, and every time they come I make it a point to not be anywhere near this town for fear they'd set it all ablaze.

Or, if the band is setting off enough pyro for the 4th of July in a building the size of a closet, its best to get a head start on everybody that will begin running for their lives five seconds later.

bluenovaman: Thank God they are, sadly I'm sure some distant family was in there. My family was one of the founding families there. I'd call that area more 2nd world due to the progress made, but it is still a shiathole in a lot of places.


Good to hear.
And of course, like most countries in the world, the people who live there, no matter their station, are always better than the people that run the place.

These fires always happen the same way.

Club over capacity, single door exit, and highly flammable interior.

Just add idiot to set it off.
