    Huh, I’m getting the strange feeling the kids want an eject button from their lives.

    Hold your breath, plug your nose, and swallow three times. (Not as easy as it sounds.)

    Or have someone plug your ears and drink a glass of something.

    Sort of. One alarm would be (depending on the fire department) a minimum of two engines, a ladder truck, and a battalion chief to supervise. (In New York, for example, that’s more like three engines, two ladders, and a chief.)Second alarm usually doubles that engine, ladder and chief count, and sometimes brings a “supply shop” which will have things like additional oxygen tanks. Three alarms is a pretty big fire, you’ll have at least 15 or so vehicles there at this stage (sometimes way more than that), and that’s usually when the media relations person shows up. Mutual aid agreements (other towns sending units) can also be arranged at this point. In FDNY the air units start to show up around now.Four alarms ups the unit count, and is pretty rare.Five alarms is basically all hands on deck. In FDNY a five alarm fire would have 20+ engine companies, 10+ ladders, a half dozen chiefs, and then something like 15 more support units for a total of 50+ vehicles on site.

    At any point if the commander on scene decides they need more units, they can “special call” an arbitrary number to the scene without pulling an additional alarm.

    Nope. Schools keep a copy from the year their athlete won. In 2010 USC returned its copy of the 2005 Heisman because of the Reggie Bush scandal, and Bush himself eventually returned his.

    The winner gets one (freshly cast each year) and his university gets a replica. Or maybe you could consider both of them “replicas”, but the point is, they’re both authentic and issued from the Heisman Trust.

    Yeah it’s pretty complete. It doesn’t list all the brothers and their occupations, but it pretty much covers everything else. Like it mentions Romaire (Maureen’s ex), who I don’t think we’ve seen much of in the past several years, but doesn’t name Marcus, the cheapskate NFL linebacker (or maybe defensive lineman?) brother of Clarence who shows up pretty often.

    As the European say, if you’re walking down the street and a stranger smiles at you, they are either drunk, insane, or American.

    Yeah it’s hard to tell. There was a gap from the 25th through the 29th on the web site (but posts for the 30th and today that don’t match these) so I’m not sure what’s going on.

    “Watch” means tornadoes are likely to form. “Warning” means one has literally been spotted in the area.

    I always kind of wondered how they only had one kid.
