Burning bras went out in the 70's didn't it?

There's a bar like that down on Leavenworth street where I'm from. Never went in to find out why they had them though.

A fire hazard? C'mon, really? Who has ever heard of a burning bra?

I give props to the woman that decided to one-up them all by tossing her panties up there.

It isn't a fire hazard

It is an increased Fire Load in the overhead of a crowded bar.   If a fire started somewhere else in the bar, the underwear overhead would potentially make it worse.

wouldn't the bras need to be almost confluent before they would help spread the fire?

Fire hazard. Totally. Take 'em off.

IF there's a fire big enough to reach the ceiling, can they really make it any worse?

I guess anything can be a fire hazard if you have a big enough pile. Even rocks. After all, that's pretty much how volcanoes work, and natural nuclear piles.

My super was in my apartment yesterday to check to see if there was enough room for men to come in and measure for new windows. I learned that the Fire Marshal's visit wasn't to determine whether my piles of books are big enough to constitute a fire hazard but to install a new smoke detector.

I tested it later by making dinner and it works.

Spontaneous human combustion was a popular subject in the XIXth and early XXth centuries because the anti-alcohol propagandists argued that it was caused by drunks drinking too much alcohol.

It would take a LOT of alcohol to make a human spontaneously combustible though. Most of the cases of SHC involve smokers, drinkers and people who use flammable imbrocations and salves. The skeptics and rationalists believe it is caused by the wick effect and tiny sparks from lamps and open fires, including cigarettes. The victims are often fat and burn like a candle. Because some of them are drunk or sleeping soundly or dead, they might not notice they are on fire.

Bars and night clubs don't mix well with fires. Mostly it is human negligence rather than the alcohol alone that causes the problem though.

Who wants to drink underneath used underwear? Why not just serve canapés next to the kitty litter?

It's not Lutece.  They probably still spit in the beer mugs to clean them out.

For those that don't know, that place houses the world's oldest sanctioned bowling lanes. They use actual human pinsetters; no machines at all.

As someone with a bra fetish, I would love this place.

The best part of that article is where it says they gave the place the first thorough cleaning in 40 years for the 100th anniversary.

Depends on how many there are, and the construction of the ceiling.     I am imagining an open rafter system, no real fuel up there to ignite, until we hang 40 years worth of underwear up there, make of cotton and polyester.

Some band comes in, sets up fireworks on stage, now I have a potential ignition source.   If they have sprinklers up there, I wouldn't care


Honestly, I am not a fire code official anywhere near this bar, so it doesn't bother me one way or another.

But increasing fire load in a public building is a concern

Talk about a fire hazard, any been to "No Name Pub" in the Florida Keys? They have about $100,000 in singles stapled up all over the inside of the place.

Best grouper sandwich in all of Florida.

The solution is simple. All bras must be left outside, for fire safety reasons.

I was expecting them to be removed since they are a fire hazard.  They should all take the bra's off just to be sure.
