The fire is over there and this awesome free food is here.  So what's the problem?

The roof is on fire. We don't give shiat let the mothefarker burn. Eat motherfarker eat.

I could have done without the gross smacking of his lips. Didn't his mother teach him any manners at all?

I probably wouldn't have left either. I would have turned my seat around to get a better view of the carnage whilst eating though.

What the hell was he supposed to do? Run away screaming?

Sadly, it's not all that weird and it's why we have fire drills.

Much of what we now know about behaviour in fires comes from this incident (traumatic content):
"Catherine McGuinn remembers the women sat calmly eating their lunch."

Spoiler: Humans are hopeless at assessing risk

I could see if it were the bride, but some random dude?

Calmly walk away from the scene, assist anyone unable so to do (as he appears to be reasonably young and strong) and then, in the absence of a pre-arranged muster point, take cover behind a robust structure, leaving routes of access clear for emergency services. HTH.

It was a gender reveal: "No big deal. He already told me it's a girl."

FTA: "The incident, reportedly due to firecrackers, took place on Sunday evening at Ansari marriage hall."

I think they prefer to be called "firecaucasians."

People are incredibly stupid when it comes to fire. If you have ever read books about deadly fires, you would be amazed at how many people will look at someone else for confirmation that there is a fire. People will pass exits to go to the exit they used to enter.  At the Station fire in Rhode Island a security guard wouldn't let people exit through the band entrance.  Many didn't argue with him or push him out of the way.  They went toward the front entrance and probably became one of the many fatalities.

At the Station the flashover happened a minute after the fire started.  At the Cocoanut Grove the fire engulfed the night club in about 5 minutes.

I understand why people find these idiots amusing.  That being said I always know where the exit is and if I see a hint of smoke, I'm gone.  When the fire alarm goes off in my building (which it has done twice), I am running towards the exit yelling, "get out get out" while everyone sits and says, "is this for real or just a false alarm?"  People are incredibly stupid when it comes to fire.

From the video, it looks like these guys were seated outside, and at a reasonable distance from the fire to where there was no threat to them.

Alternative interpretations:

a) Surely I have time to finish my cup of tea.
b) Take that you stiff-upper lipped Britishers!
c) I thought it was part of the enterrtainment.
d) Fires at weddings are the latest thing, I hear.
e) the smoke is still easier to breathe than the air in the street, so I am staying put as long as possible.

It's rude to leave a wedding feast before you have honoured the hosts by eating your fill.

I am waiting for them to break out the booze and cigars.

What's with this kid's hair? Was that the fashion at the time or just a choice of the artist who couldn't do Pompadours?

To show how rich they are, the family burned down the wedding hall and rebuilt it around the guests

From the headline was kind of expecting them to be inside the burning building.
disappoint
