I cannot put into words the respect I have for firefighters. I’m from Michigan and I’m a big fan of movies, so when I stumbled across the documentary Burn (2012) about Detroit firefighters, it was a moment I never forgot (incidentally, if you’ve never seen Burn, it’s essential viewing, regardless of if you’re from Michigan or not).
But firefighters don’t just get called to fires. They called in for all sorts of dumb shit, and these stories… God these fucking stories. They might be among the dumbest things I’ve ever read in my entire life.
