Very proud of my firefighter son. It’s not an easy job psychologically besides being very physical. They deal with child drownings a lot in Arizona. Jaws of life at car accidents. He’d rather go into a burning building. It takes its toll on their families too. I just remember all the firefighters who went IN to the Twin Towers while everyone else was going out. All firefighters are heroes in my book.

My husband is a retired Station Officer who worked for NSW Fire and Rescue for 31 years. He loved every minute of it, except when he and his crew were ‘chasing bush’. That’s firey speak for putting out bushfires.

Very proud of my firefighter daughter and her husband. A group of firefighters from CT, NY and NJ volunteered to build a playground in memory of each child and school administrator that was killed at Sandy Hook. The parents chose the location of each playground. Google “Where Angels Play Foundation”.

Burning materials today are more toxic than in yesterday year. Plastics and other carcinogens that are inhaled can cause cancer. E.g. 9/11 survivors.

Chrissy Krainock Luders, Thank you to your son and all the men and women who protect us from fires as they risk their own lives. To all who have perished in the line of duty, thank you and RIP. I myself could not do this. I am grateful.

Need to clean up the picture in #9. See picture #2 for the reason. Other than that, it was informative.

billyboy915, There was a typo in my previous comment. It should read, "school".

Todd Cates, Thank God for the critics! They're proof that standards still matter. You may be happy with Quizzclub's lack of professionalism, but remember that this is a professional site, presumably written and managed by adults, not middle schhol teens who don't know any better. Slip-shod standards are the gateway to mediocrity. Lift yourself up; expect better. Others live up or down to your expectations. Don't you think we deserve better than "just passable"?

Ruth Andrews, I think it's fairly obvious that English is not their first language. My guess is that this site originates from somewhere in Asia; judging by spelling, most likely the Indian subcontinent where the British influence was strong.
