Gordon Bennett: emersonbiggins: Charges upgraded from arson to manslaughter

Under California law if they're charged with a felony in regards to starting the fire then the it would be murder.


Either way, the verdict reveal party is going to be lit.

Birnone: We Ate the Necco Wafers: The first few minutes after the firecracker went off, I wonder what the people there were thinking about the fire they ignited. Surely it started small. I wonder if they tried to pour beer on it or stomp it out.

A little more effort right there at the very start of this calamity could have probably saved this life as well as the acres and acres of land.

I read an article that said they did try to put it out. That can mean a lot of things though. One person stomping on one small shrub then giving up. A couple of kids running forward to throw dirt on a couple of the smaller flames. Maybe someone had a bottle of water and tried splashing it on some flames. A couple of adults giving it their all and needing more help only to helplessly watch as everyone else ran for it. I see no reason to give that group the benefit of the doubt. I need to see the video to believe they really tried.

If enough people of the opposite gender from the baby get burned, it foretells a sex change in their future.

I can see the flames of this fire from my current fark position, JD & Coke in hand. I can only see the flames because at last the smoke has cleared enough from the El Dorado and the Bobcat fires for me to again watch the world burn.
Of course they didn't think that just because it was 114° and it's 2020 that this could go so wrong. But that's the problem. People don't think. And it's 2020.

Royce P: Wouldn't it be hilarious if she ended up getting an abortion instead?


The punishment for the moron parents, after a fair trial of course, is to have a forced abortion and then be forced to eat the fetus.  Then have the morons burned till dead.  These fark jobs set off fireworks in CA in the hight of fire season.  They murdered a firemxn.  They burned homes down.  The ruined lives.  All because they wanted fireworks to tell people if their progeny had a penis or vagina.  Which most humans in the entire history of humans have one or the other or both of.  It isn't novel or rare for a human fetus or baby to have a penis or vagina.  They were making a show out of something totally average and murdered a firemxn and ruined lives to do it.

I hope they suicide out of shame.

bfh0417: So, it's not global warming?


I know that science confounds you right-wingers, so the fact that climate change created drier conditions than normal and that trade winds are stronger in coastal areas as a result create optimal conditions for larger wildfires is probably too complex of a concept for little right-wing minds to comprehend. But look forward to someone taking you to the zoo.

Bless the one who died. Hopefully this will be a wake up call to everyone who thinks anyone actually gives a  hoot about their crotch fruit's gender.

This selfish party idiocy reminds me of the time when I was managing a wedding hall on Lake Tahoe in the historic Crocker estate on Forest Management land. The bride at one wedding had signed a waver saying no fire would be used during the reception or wedding due to the historic building and fire danger. Then they showed up with a stack of boxes of 2 foot long sparklers they planned to light down the avenue of pine trees as the Bride and Groom left the venue. In the middle of tinder-dry federal land. In July. They fought me tooth and nail and I had to confiscate them until after the party. I told them it was that or call the forest service on them, but that would have ruined the reception and cost them a load of cash. Then I gave most of the boxes back to be locked in someone's trunk. Freaking morons. Great sparklers, though.
