wax, oil and plastics are bad when heated, you can't get it off of you

I'm not crazy about open flames in a house anymore. Seven years ago I was renting space in an old house and while I was gone trucking the damn place burned down,with two people dying. Nobody could prove it ,but one guy on the first floor used to light candles while he'd drink and get stoned.

dat - Posted - 03/15/2016:  09:03:15


we used to drink, come in and fry french fries, we could have burned the house down then cause I remember cleaning up a lot of splattered grease the next day

DeanT - Posted - 03/15/2016:  11:22:25


I'm suprised we didn't burn the place down passing out with lit cigarettes

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/15/2016:  11:39:43


That's what happened to Luther Perkins, Johnny Cash's original lead guitarist. He fell asleep while smoking and died in the resulting fire.

DeanT - Posted - 03/15/2016:  13:01:44


I had a neighbor who passed out, fell forward, and broke his neck on the ash-tray stand. His lit cigarette didn't start anything on fire... fortunately, because he was our neighbor in a duplex. 

dat - Posted - 03/15/2016:  14:27:51


lots of fun in the past that should have killed us

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

and pain is just weakness leaving the body   yes



 



all that sounds good when you're 20 to 35 or so,  past that I'm just proud to still be around

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/15/2016:  14:56:31


Yeh,, I stayed alive long enough to get a bit of wisdom

DeanT - Posted - 03/15/2016:  15:45:43


I'm pretty happy just getting out of bed without pulling something

My mom burned her apartment. The claimed it was an electrical fire but the firemen said it started in a couch and was probably a cigarette. It made sense because she was a heavy smoker. 



She was also a talented artist and all her paintings were destroyed in the fire. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/16/2016:  06:12:21


a dryer vent somehow burned the laundry down, at an apartment complex I lived at many years ago

dat - Posted - 03/16/2016:  06:49:12


gas dryers can be bad if the vents aren't clean

DeanT - Posted - 03/16/2016:  12:49:28


There was also some speculation disgruntled renters started it...

dat - Posted - 03/16/2016:  13:03:41


sometimes a fed up landlord, easiest way to get rid of unwanted, back rent renters and still collect insurance,  



I've heard that it can take 6 months to get an eviction for lack of rent payment, which puts you 7 or 8 months without rent being paid plus lawyers expense and filing fees

DeanT - Posted - 03/16/2016:  16:25:53


or you get the fly by nighters and never see them again

A friend of mine (who works for the same company I do, but at a different group home) has a house right across the street from me.  I've been here 35 years, and so has she.  Her house is a really nice brick triplex, and she rents all three floors to tenants while she lives elsewhere (out in the country) herself.  About 2 months ago, someone torched the garage behind her house there across the street from me.  She blames the "slumlord" next to her house, and has had all sorts of difficulty getting the garage (a total loss) torn down and removed from her back alley.  



I was talking with her last week about it all - - and she found out that if you need a building removed here in town, it's easy enough normally.  BUT - - if the building/ wood/ or whatever was burnt/ or "hazardous", there's a limited amount of places where you can have it "disposed of properly" since everyone is so "environmentally correct" about every last piece of refuse here in town.  She figures the "slumlord" next to her set fire to her garage (and his right next to it got severely burnt also) so he could have extra "extended" off street parking for the tenants in his place.  As it is - - she has no proof, and her insurance doesn't cover replacement cost for her garage.  She's not a happy camper (these days).

DeanT - Posted - 03/17/2016:  06:15:55


After the rubble is cleared, she need to find someone with an old junker car that needs a place to store it, to take up the free parking...

dat - Posted - 03/17/2016:  06:34:06


yeah, I believe I would find sumthin to park or put there

I heard it said that good fences make good neighbors

DeanT - Posted - 03/17/2016:  13:51:57


how about electric fences?

dat - Posted - 03/17/2016:  13:57:49


 single phase 240 or three phase 240?

DeanT - Posted - 03/17/2016:  16:25:21


whichever fries quicker

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/17/2016:  16:43:14


Did you ever see somebody pee on an electric fence?

DeanT - Posted - 03/17/2016:  17:55:49


we always dared eachother to do it... but never any takers...

dmiller - Posted - 03/17/2016:  19:15:11


When I was a kid, we dared each other to lick a lamp post in sub-freezing weather



 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/17/2016:  20:42:38


Or bend down and lick a railway track.....yow!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2016:  03:37:19


Our Boys Club was in an old rail road station. We used to put coins on the tracks and let the trains flatten them. 

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  06:15:14


we flattened a lot of pennies, never did pee on a fence though, we never really had enough cold weather to stick to anything

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2016:  06:34:41


we had a railroad yard near our high school, if we timed it right we could jump a freight train and beat the bus home. The jump off was a doozy

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2016:  07:23:54


I never peed on an electric fence either, but we used to hold hands in a big circle and get jolted.

My wife works at a company that makes bionic ankles for amputees. There are several who work their and almost half of them lost their limbs jumping trains.

yep, livin the wild life.   amazing the things we did as kids that if you had the chance now, you wouldn't

Back when we were indestructible and immortal.

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  07:27:53


I saw a lot of dogs cut in half on the train tracks, I never did try to get that close when a train went by

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  07:28:44


now we ache and hurt without having to do anything out of the ordinary

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2016:  09:18:04


I do a lot of stretches to keep away some of the aches. Getting out of bed is an adventure sometimes though.

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  09:54:55


I would stretch a mile if I didn't have to walk back

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2016:  13:12:25


I walk 5 to 10 miles a day. I get achier if I don't

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  13:39:30


 now the time has changed I'll start walking again, up until this week it's been dark when I leave home and dark when I get home,  I have a little day light now,  at work I walk all day, but a lot of short walks often, not much exercise when it's the every day constant

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2016:  14:19:14


You all would hate me, I ride a bike at least 10 miles a day, ride a ski machine 30 minutes a day, lift weights, and run 10 miles a day. On Fridays I run more, sometimes as far as 30 miles. I just got back from running 15 miles. In 2012 I could barely run to the end of my block. I agree though, getting out of bed can be a real b****.

dat - Posted - 03/18/2016:  14:25:57


starting this time of year, I do a lot more, walks after work, hiking on weekends, my running days quit with my back surgery, but I take off on any walk or hike, we're thinking about going out this weekend for about a ten mile hike/ lunch in the woods kinda thing, the dogwoods are blooming, and the redbuds still have a little color (snakes are moving too) 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2016:  15:12:47


I've recently started walking 35 to 45 minutes a day, including a steep uphill along a nearby riverside walking trail. The first time on the uphill - a week ago- I had to stop halfway up. Now ,no stopping.

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2016:  16:25:32


It's all good, just keep on trucking!

Bodies in motion tend to stay in motion. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2016:  06:53:16


Bodies at rest get cold

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/19/2016:  07:05:24


If you don't use it, you lose it

OM45GE - Posted - 03/19/2016:  07:16:47


I enjoy physical activity. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2016:  12:07:29
