Jenna Myers Karvunidis, who has been credited for possibly starting the trend, has since expressed disdain for what the parties have become in light of the California fire.

"Could we just stop having these stupid parties and then the problem would solve itself," she tweeted last September.


At least she know what she started and feels bad about it, I can give her that much.

My calculations might be off, but at a height of 5'4" and roughly 34" wide, you could fit approximately 670 Edward Furlongs in that area.

They're a little bit sensitive about fires up there. I wonder why?

600 canuckistan pesos fine?  These people should be in jail.  It probably cost double that for a single one of the firefighters to help put the fire out.

In the future, anyone who gets caught doing dumb shiat like this, including participating and not stopping these idiots, gets to get press ganged into a wildfire firefighter gang.


They get 1 canteen of water, both for fighting fire and to drink, a pick, a shovel, and 2 cliff bars.  They can't come back until fire is out or in a casket.

The problem if the fines are crazy is that if a fire starts everyone takes off and nobody says a word or calls emergency services.

They still manage to catch a lot of the people who do start wildfires even when they do escape from area.  And a lot of these started by stupid people with explosives for gender reveal parties all have their phones out and recording.

Send subpoena to cell phone providers for phones in that area, grab social media profiles, get phones and video evidence of the people there and the people who ignited device.

A $600 fine has been issued after a gender reveal party led to a wildfire in Alberta.

Way too low of a fine.

CFL field is in YARDS despite our being otherwise completely metric....  65 wide, 110 long.  End zones are 20 yards deep.  Playing area is therefore 9750 square yards = 87 750 sq ft.

NFL field 53 1/3 yds wide, 100 yds long with 10 yard end zones - 6400 square yards or  57 600 square feet.

So the CFL field is a bout 1.5x as big as the NFL field.  We cover that extra turf with ONE more player than the NFL does...

Well, technically, two more players.
