SwiftFox: RandomRandom: ZzeusS: You absolutely cannot use salt water to put out a fire. The salt mixes with the extreme heat to produce hydrogen sulfate, which is a poisonous gas. This gas mixes with the oxygen to create a huge fuel air bomb, which will explode and cause much more damage than just the fire itself.

You need to get right on that and alert every seaside metro fire department that their salt-water pumping fire boats are no longer safe!

I'd give him .002 for the creativity of coming up with hydrogen sulphate when there is no sulfur involved.


"hydrogen sulfate" is more commonly known as "sulfuric acid" which is a wee bit more than just poisonous, but not exactly very explosive. The hilarity if ocean water could generate it would be incredible. Sharknato is nothing compared to Acidnami!

AllYourFarkAreBelongToMe: Solid Muldoon: Benjimin_Dover: So have they determined the cause yet? Was it shoddy workmanship done while rushing to rebuild it the last time? Are they going to wait until there is adequate water supply to the area to fight fires this time? Questions I think should be answered before another slap together job is done.

Adequate water supply? You mean like that ocean sitting right there?

Which they drew water from via many 5" hoses.  Actually they drew water from the bay, not the ocean, but whatever.  It takes a special kinda sick fark to make light of this.  Some of these people had just finished rebuilding and reopened after losing everything to Sandy.  And now they've lost everything again.  But fark-'m right?  Damned business owners who employ people and pay taxes.  Who needs 'em!?  AMIRIGHT?




God was on their side.

Similar to how you can't drink salinated water, it also can't put out fires. The salt boosts the thermal conductivity of the water to the point where it is completely useless to extinguish fires. In fact, it might even speed up the spread of the blaze.

I thought it was funny and love how many responses you got.

What good is an ocean full of water going to be to a bunch of businesses if they don't have at the ready under pressure in a sprinkler system? The fire crews had no choice but to go and pump it from the bay/ocean because the water service to that area hasn't been completely repaired from Sandy. The goal should be to put the fire out soon after it starts in a business with a sprinkler system so that it does spread far. Not wait for some fire crew to get onsite, hook up to the water system, find out there isn't enough service, call in a pumper, drag lines to the bay, and THEN start spraying water on the fire.

You've got to give ZzeusS credit, tho, for being a persistant l'il cuss. Or maybe he actually believes that stuff, and was homeschooled in Kansas.

That's some pretty stingy scoring considering the number of bites he got.

IdBeCrazyIf: MugzyBrown: Like I said, if they're not insured they're total idiots. If they are leasing, they can still have insurance that would cover their lost income.

Depending on payouts from Sandy it wouldn't shock me if some of them had to lower future pay out amounts so they could meet future operational costs. But as you point out, it's a calculated risk one takes as a business owner.


Sandy was bad because nobody in their right mind would insure them for flood, and easily could have excluded the wind/hail peril. When it comes to fire, that's the most basic peril covered even under Standard Property Policies that are purchased on "distressed" properties. I highly doubt the properties were that distressed, so they likely have BOP coverage, which includes coverage for both fire and business income.

The only problem is whether or not they are not carrying the proper level of insurance. But, if they met the 80% coinsurance clause, or have agreed value, they will receive the full policy limit for this occurrence.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: We need just one more before we can start cracking "Boardwalk 5" jokes.

What are the chances of getting the next one sucked into a time riff?


Who told you about the plan?  She was supposed to keep quiet.

It's a dangerous place, but it's our last, best hope... for sleaze.

If only there was a material they could use to build the boardwalk that wouldn't burn or get washed away.
