Well we just had a chimmey fire in the fireplace where I work it was like a war zone. Three fire trucks, sirens blazing. men dressed in yellow, lots of them. Its all okay now, but a fire is darn scary. The only good thing was all the good looking men

You work in a fireplace?
As a kid, we had several of them. I remember holding the door open so my brother could carry burning logs out and throw them in the snow.
In the town where I grew up, the fire dept was (and still is) volunteer; it was standard practice that after you had a minor fire, like a chimney fire, you dropped a flat of beer off the next day for the guys. Now that's a small town tradition.

hehehehe...whats really funny is when people start thinking that the people on them are for real....I have seen individuals who want to send money and things to a soap opera family if their house burns down now you can see why some people will believe anything

It's just not possible that in one family, take the Bold and the Beautiful or something, that within a year: someone gets pregnant without wanting to get pregnant; two people die; one gets raped; one wins the lottery; one crashes with an airplane and ends up on a deserted island in the Pacific; one gets blackmailed; etc. etc. I don't know whether this actually happened in the Bold and the Beautiful, but I can't be far from it

Isn't it funny how no one ever takes a fire seriously!! The last time the fire alarm went off at my work (someone used the toaster!!) we sort of wandered around for a while, loads of people continued their phone conversations and then said 'should we be moving outside??' Didn't think there was a fire but then decided it would be best to evacuate- especially as the meeting point was at the pub across the road!!

We could have all burnt to death!!!! But instead we had a beer!!

Don't be so sure.
I volunteer at my kids' school, and I was there one day when a little kid pulled the fire alarm. His teacher was the only one who was aware it wasn't a real fire, the other teachers only knew it wasn't a drill. I've never seen such an impressive sight - 300+ kids quietly exiting the school single-file in an orderly fashion. Even lined up in their rows out on the field you couldn't hear a sound.

I once read that when there's a life-threatening situation, most people don't really panic. I remember certain images of 9/11, where people were actually waiting for the elevator quietly (or: semi-quietly) while not far from them, intense fires were burning. I recall that there is a certain psychological explanation for that fenomenon, but I don't remember what it was exactly.
