Fun fact: Trampoline is an Olympic sport.

Another fun fact: The International Olympic Committee was set on eliminating Greco-Roman wrestling as an event, but had no intention of eliminating trampoline.

Well, in their defense, the lube costs on that Greek wrestling was getting out of control...

So you're automatically a hero for simply doing the job you're paid to do? Nice.

Nah, subby gave himself the Hero tag for his witty headline.

Now if the fireman had been carrying orphans or kittens, or even orphan kittens out of a burning building when he got hurt, then I would say appropriate use of Hero tag. Going above and beyond is what counts.

The fire is believed to have been started from a welder spark during the construction of a foam bit inside the new business, a CFA spokeswoman says.

I was a foam welder back in the day. My welds were so strong, the foam would dry out and break before my weld.

We were actually welding foam and shipping it to Japan for use in cars that were coming back to the US. Prior to that, Japanese Foam Welders were doing butt welds and American consumers claimed that they could feel the seam in the car seats. I rode in a 76 Corolla. You could feel it plain as day.T

he Japanese Robot Makers killed my livelihood. The Japanese Robot Maker announced their their robots could weld foam better and faster than any human, even American Foam Welders. They challenged us to a contest and I was selected. The contest was in a great warehouse full of foam. When the Emperor of Japan released a Squid of Begin the Race, the contest began.

I was keeping up nicely with the Japanese robot but the odds were stacked against me. The wily Japanese had double stacked my foam stock with mixed layers so I had to sort. the robot had only one stock to weld so it only had to grab and weld. But I pressed on.

They were cheering on the robot and he got prideful and stopped to wave to the crowd. I got in a burst of energy and was throwing double beads and butt welding all at the same time. I finally got in front of the robot and it looked like I would win but the Emperor refused to release the Eel of Victory until the robot caught up.

Even though I felt that I had won, the Emperor handed the giant novelty check to the robot. The crowd cheered and a bunch of American foam manufacturers ran up the President of the robot factory - a non robot - to buy his robot foam welders. It was over.

I laid down on a pile of foam that I welded and died. I remember thinking "This foam is pretty soft. Not a weld to be felt." It was a good albiet final thought.

Thank you for your service, John.
