The My Little Pony Killer: Why risk your life for cars?


I can think of quite a few cars that are worth far more then my life. Even if i sold all my organs.

hardinparamedic: Mock26: Yeah!  Because everyone knows that that soldier who spent his time safely at an air base predicting the weather is a hero!

One of these things is not like the other. Off-duty Firefigher who had no protective equipment choosing to disregard his own safety to save the lives of others is not the same as Rescue Randy lounging in the Station while it happens.

.Marine who jumps in a hummer and decides to re-enact a HALO level and tapdance on the head of the Talbian while saving dozens of lives is not the same as Weatherman Steve

See. If you had watched Sesame Street as a kid, instead of Bernie's Right Wing Christian Jihad hour on TBN, you'd know that.


No, it is not the same as Weatherman Steve.  But, a lot of people with their use of the word "hero" would have you believe that they are the same.

The point called from Beijing and wanted you to know it misses you.

You're absolutely right. A Search and Rescue volunteer isn't the same as an off-duty firefighter.

Charlie Chingas: I really don't understand why they call someone hero when they're doing their job. I mean, I don't call the cashier at WalMart a hero for accurately scanning my purchases...


Cashiers aren't risking their lives doing it, that's the difference. Also, he's a volunteer, so its not his job.

DubyaHater: He probably could have stopped at the humans and let the cars burn.  Sounds like he had a death wish.


Hate to say it and I really hope it's not true, but it sounds like he was feeling guilty for starting the fire.

Pretty sure if I scour the microfiche archives for a week or two, I can find a story about a cashier dying in the line of duty.

Seriously? I don't have a dog in this fight but cashiers get killed in robberies all the time: https://www.google.ca/search?q=cashier+killed+in+robbery&ie=utf-8&oe= u tf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

So, every soldier is a Hero?  Then why do they not give out Bronze Stars, Silver Stars, and Congressional Medals of Honor to every soldier who sees combat?  Or are those soldiers who receive those medals for heroism super heroes?  Or maybe ultra heroes?  They cannot all be heroes.  Nor are they.  If they were then all of them would get medals for their heroism.

Read into my comments however you wish, but I didn't say all people whose job involves danger is a hero. Never even implied it. My point was that a cashier ringing up an order correctly is not in itself heroic. Is that so hard to understand? Please don't put words in my mouth, its just not prudent.
