If it's choice between being pantless and alive, or wearing pants and dying in a fire, always go for pantless.

Well if his pants on fire, he might be a liar!

It ain't funny because dammit people believe they can run into a fire and hold their breath long enough to rescue valuables, or a pet. Sadly I have lost a friend that way. Beathing through a handkerchief only works in movies.

But his weed and $20 in beer money were in the pocket.

I would really want some beer and pot the day after my trailer burnt down.

Here I am always looking for justification to be pantsless in public and this guy throws away a perfect excuse.

Dude, hot pants are no longer in style.

Henry Hill?  You sure he wasn't trying to get his cocaine or his silencers?

Ive always wondered how many people actually die every year as a result of movies portraying buildings on fire with little to no smoke. That and fire arrows are my triggers.

Saw pretty much the same thing happen when I was a kid.  An apartment was on fire with flames shooting out of the windows.  The fire trucks pull up, and guy walks out onto the balcony in his underwear.  The firemen tell him to stay there, and you hear him yell something about pants.  He disappears back inside and never came out.

His last words as he ran back in were "Have you seen me in those pants?"

If he went back for his shoes, the ironic tag would be in play.

encounter many fire arrows in life, do you? this is something Farkers would warn you against. living the Medieval life style. it's cool, it's fun, but in the long run it's fire arrows and damaged knees. just not worth it.

Don't forget sprinklers that spray everything just because an alarm goes off.

I usually sleep naked as does the woman so there exists a chance that my wiener will have to be blurred out on local TV should there ever be a fire. If you ever see a story about an incredibly good looking studmuffin with only a few pixels obscuring something, I sure hope it is the winter so I have an excuse.

I've told this story before and I will tell it again: you get 3 seconds without taking a breath and that's it, you're done. I know this for two reasons personally.

1) We had what could have been a disastrous fire here in the building next to us @ 3 years ago; some dumbass chucked a cigarette butt out his door at an apartment in West Texass where the siding is all wood, in a desert, on a hot autumn afternoon with a driving 28 MPH wind and 0% humidity. First I smelled it, then I saw it; I ran around the outside of the building looking for the point of origin and saw the stairwell go up in massive flames. There is only one way out from the second story and it was those stairs and people were home and apparently unaware; we have NO outside water access in this shiathole and the fire extinguishers are located in the stairwell because the complex managers read the poorly worded fire code as meaning "within 75 feet of the door" as to meaning "we can put the extinguishers outside instead of inside!" like complete farkers, but I digress. I screamed at all available people in the growing crowd to gather as many fire extinguishers as possible and throw them to me as I tried to clear a path in the stairwell to get to the people upstairs so that they wouldn't have to swan dive off the back balconies.
I made it as far as the smoke. One whiff: that's all it took. I lasted a half second after that and I was on the ground dry heaving a lung and could go no further. I managed to empty 3 extinguishers before the smoke shifted and took me out with one breath.
I was raised by firefighters and understood the risks, but until you actually take that one breath for yourself you can never truly understand just how bad it is. This isn't a campfire smoke that makes you cough a little, it is like having God rip your lungs out in an instant.

2) As a kid whose family was closely tied to the local firefigher community, my Dad's best friend was also a volunteer firefigher. He died in his own home and his body was found in the bedroom, hand on the doorknob. Cause of death: smoke inhalation. If a trained firefigher can't make it out while "crawling on the floor below the smoke", you won't either.

Don't ever go back in, I don't care how loud the screams are because without a SCBA you will be joining the screamers in a heartbeat.

Those pants really tied his outfit together.

I can't RTFA because I'm in Europe. Are the pants ok?
