I live in Ohio. Nothing happens here. No major weather events, no earthquakes, no industrial disasters, not interesting enough for terrorists. We're boring enough that fate might just forget about us and skip us by.

The people of Xenia, Ohio may want to have a word with you.

Pretty much exactly what I was going to say.


I consider that area North Kentucky.

Frederick: Theres such a thing as too much help?  Wouldnt it make more sense to arrive and stand by out of the way?  Or is the thought process that people dont know what "out of the way" is?

Yes, too much help. And people that can't follow instructions. Or people who just start doing something because it seems like a good idea*. Or get pissy because they don't like the task they were given, even though it's something necessary. Or leave in the middle because they don't like the task. Or people who donate stuff that we don't need and can't use. Donate cash please. We have specific needs and buy in bulk; we can get more than you can for the same amount of money. Or at least check the web site where we list items we actually need. And if we list a brand name, we have a reason. Get the brand and type we specified.

*for example: "helpful" volunteers see a bunch of stuff piled up outside the building. They see a partially empty room inside and just decide to move all the stuff into the room, filling it up. Well, guess what? That's a conference room, people are working in there, we need that space. So now move it all back outside.  Thanks so much for helping.

I know that doesn't sound like much, but when it's one thing after another, day after day, it gets tiresome.

Paris1127: What were they storing in this place, rocket fuel?


Anhydrous ammonia and nitrates for oxidizing. Probably some hydrogen sulfides on site. All that stuff goes into fertilizer.

A little bit of chemistry knowledge means that that place is a literally a bomb. Growing up in a farm area means you learn really damn fast what's dangerous in agriculture.

Reminds me of the whole question of donating blood after the Boston bombing the other day, with the Hospital saying "we have enough blood, thanks", and people asking "WHAT CAN WE DO? HOW CAN WE HELP?!?!11"

Simple answer... sit home, monitor the situation from your television, and let the professionals do their jobs.

Fair enough, admin, please allow me to rephrase.  Confabulat, a guy I've known and worked with for 13 years lost his brother tonight in that explosion.  He was a firefighter just there doing his job.  I'm sure it was standard Fark trolling that you were doing.  I hope that you are blessed with a long life and that you are surrounded all the way into old age by family and kids and grandchildren.  I'd be willing to give you the benefit of the doubt that people in West, TX haven't drawn your ire in any specific way and that yours was just a moment of derp while trying to be edgy and cool.  I've no doubt that all those who read your posts now will recognize you for the thoughtful philanthropist you are.

What did I do to insult your friend's brother? Making fun of small-town Texas?

Buddy, my family is lifetime Floridians and I'm proud to carry the torch. Yet look at me here on Fark.com.

I apologize for vaguely insulting the brother of your friend or co-worker or whatever in some minor way. Deep in the heart of Texas!
 
2013-04-18 03:59:38 AM
I think I have the overly-helpful personality that I'm sure annoys people somehow.  I just haven't been near a disaster before, so my damage has been limited.  Get 100 of me in a disaster zone and bad things will happen, I'm sure.

I wonder whether 4chan's labeling of suspects in Boston is similarly getting in the way, though not physically.

Reporter (not any of the reporters you're talking about) here: it's just asking how they're feeling at this time, we do this because my boss tells me people care more about the emotional aspect rather than the factual information provided by authorities...I'm told I feel this way too.  Find your local sheriff/police department Facebook and/or Twitter if you want real evacuation or safety information.  News people are too busy finding "real people" with emotional reactions and can't be bothered to pass on facts.

Or, if you're actually serious and not trying to be funny, you're going to get people killed by doing what you say. Of course, it's always a good idea to wade into a HAZMAT zone with no protection or communication because you "want to help", right?

Never mind that there are hundreds of TRAINED people there right now, and a second tank is possibly going to explode.

eventhelosers: I ignore control freaks.  They never want to take responsibility for their actions, if the dog gammed leaders in charge are so smart where is their contingency plan, and why wasn't this avoided in the first place.


Wow. I have no words for this.

You ignore people who know more about the situation than you, and pretend to think that it's the fault of the people there trying to keep more people from being killed that the explosion occurred in the first place?

eventhelosers: On the other hand, if there are just way to many f*cking people there helping already, find a way to help further out of the way.


Either you're stupid, or you lack the ability to read with comprehension. That's what people have said. Contact your local red cross chapter. Consider donating blood in the next few days - they don't need it now, and if they do they'll announce on the news, but they WILL need blood donated to replenish their depleted stocks.

eventhelosers: I'm sure hospitals around are accepting blood, food and shelter areas need to be set up.


See aforementioned post. Unless you're with the red cross, or contacted by them to volunteer at a shelter, don't arbitrarily show up. They will not put you to work there unless you've been vetted and oriented by them before the event.

This. And people will argue with the sheriff, fire commander, cops, and other authority figures on scene because they think THEY know how to run an emergency scene because they saw this one episode of CSI and it was totally not like what the cops are trying to do.

If he's trolling, he's a retard. If he's serious, it's because of idiots like this that they want people to stay the f*ck away from the disaster scene please. They don't need more fools like this who want to tell EMS personnel with a combined experience of 900 centuries what to do.

However, not everyone knows of the risks of being even that far from a fertilizer fire.  For most other fires, that would have been a safe distance.

This is your post I quoted before being intercepted by admin:

Let's face it, that is probably one of the worst places to live in the USA. It'll be hard to miss.

My original response wasn't classy, I'll give admin that.  However, to throw your hands in the air and affect an attitude of, "Woah, what'd I say?" is a bit late, now.  My frend's brother died trying to protect a nursing home and the rest of his community.  Google if you feel inclined to call BS.  Your insult wasn't vague--it was pointed at a small community of people and meant to mock those often considered the butt of jokes on the interwebz and Fark.  Having been born and lived in Florida for many years, knowing many decent people from there, i posit that your Florida card is negated.  Your modicum of an apology, however, is appreciated--this being Fark after all, I'll admit it was more than many would offer.

I lived in Xenia for a couple of years until I could convince my girlfriend to move and marry me. I knew a guy there who had been injured in the '74 tornado, there was another just after I left that tore the Walmart up pretty bad.

Pretty much just an armpit of a town - nothing to do but eat and screw there. Or as I like to describe it, the place is so bad that God has tried to remove the damn place -twice-, but some idiot keeps putting it back up!

eventhelosers: On the other hand, if there are just way to many f*cking people there helping already, find a way to help further out of the way.

Either you're stupid, or you lack the ability to read with comprehension. That's what people have said. Contact your local red cross chapter. Consider donating blood in the next few days - they don't need it now, and if they do they'll announce on the news, but they WILL need blood donated to replenish their depleted stocks.

eventhelosers: I'm sure hospitals around are accepting blood, food and shelter areas need to be set up.

See aforementioned post. Unless you're with the red cross, or contacted by them to volunteer at a shelter, don't arbitrarily show up. They will not put you to work there unless you've been vetted and oriented by them before the event.

eventhelosers: Anyway I got a horse show to run gotta go.

If you're trying to be funny, you suck at it. If you're actually being serious, bravo. You've out-stupided people who have trolled FARK for years.


It was subtle, but it was a dig at Bush's FEMA director, Michael D. Brown, and his previous position as "the Judges and Stewards Commissioner for the International Arabian Horse Association."

HotWingAgenda: Mutt Farkinov: Can't say who I'm with organizationally on public media, but I'm a FF/medic close by.

I'm now imagining an undercover paramedic slinking around in back alleys in a trenchcoat.


"Pssst.   Hey, pal...you want a tracheotomy?"

How confusing. They named a town "West" TX but put it in the East half of the state????

links136: Uakronkid: hardinparamedic: Firefighters were working a fire on scene at the plant.

It's sad. Sad that they died. Sad that they ran in there not knowing what they were dealing with.

I still can't get over the apparent fact that the firefighters didn't understand the danger of a massive explosion. If they did, they would have held back and focused on setting up a perimeter and evac.

In fact, growing up in a town the same size, I knew some of the volunteer firefighters of the town.  They fought a single fire, a bush on fire in a big puddle.


Sounds like it might have been the Abrahamic God.

Friction8r: Some insolent farkers, in their "presumed position of authority," even though they are not at the scene, get off on telling other farkers to stay away. It feeds their air of self-importance on an anonymous message board.


I'm pretty sure "insolent Farker" is redundant :)
