AverageAmericanGuy: Help us, Michael Bay. You're our only hope!


Obviously with a single helicopter being called in for the rescue, this is not a Michael Bay production. If it were, you'd see a group of helicopters, with one being piloted by a Grizzled Veteran With A Haunted Past and another piloted by a Smartassed Kid With Talent But No Humility and they'd be jawing at each other even as some of the other helicopters were swatted from the sky and became Massive Fireballs With Screaming, and then the two remaining pilots, would find a way to use both the kid's talent and the veteran's experience to pull off some Pretty F*cking Amazing Sh*t With Fire And Maybe Nukes Or Some Crazy-Ass Explodey Sh*t and then they'd appreciate each other's talents with Awkward But Good-Natured Banter On The Way Back To The Airstrip.

New Age Redneck: If only there was a way to get down from heights without the use of a helicopter.....

   The self-evac kit I carried as a ski patroller: 200 ft of 6mil static line, belay device, locking carabiner, and enough sling to make a sit harness, you could also add a prussik. You are down safely and quickly with a simple rappel .


Right into the heart of the fire. Go ahead, show us how it's done.

Do all helicopters do this, or just Canadian helicopters?

That's a stupid place to sit if you're operating a crane.

I guess they were out of straw.

Yeah, everybody talks about intermittent explosions, and the city on fire, and crane operators dangling from blazing cranes waiting for helicopters to save them, but no one ever does anything about it.

brantgoose: Apart from the university


Not casting any aspersions on the value of your Queen's degree, sport, but there are two universities in Kingston. How'd a bright snowflake like you manage to not notice that in several years there?

Langston: Jument: Dragonflew: Oh, by the way... we have provinces in Canada, it is not just one big undivided land mass. "Kingston, Canada" makes as much sense as "Springfield, USA".

Welcome to how Americans view the world. We're lucky they say "Kingston, Canada" and not just "someplace near the artic circle".

Shut up, we Americans already know that everything in Canada is already inside the Arctic circle. That's why you all live in igloos.


If you live in Canada you already know perfectly well there's nothing outside of Ontario, so provinces don't really matter anyway.

He must have walked to the edge there, that takes balls, even if your life is on the line, i'm sure many people would just freeze up in panic and fear. Good for him, and good helicoptering work. So what film is this from?
