It’s a Dungeons and Dragons joke. In the past you had a specific savings throw where if a dragon breathed fire at you, you had to roll a number higher than your “save vs breath weapon” stat. Fail it and you would get damaged.
So the car in question was a Rogue ---- ooohhhh I see what I did. Again. A Rogue, not rouge.
If a Rogue failed its saving throw it would get torched - which this poor car did! At least that one looked drive-able still.
I haven’t learned what caused it, but given the multitude of screw up on BB the last few days, it not hard to imagine something got out of hand.
Someone just seriously fucked at least 6 peoples’ livelihood.
it’s been a few years but somebody managed to burn down an (unoccupied) building down the way from me by landing fireworks (accidentally) on its roof. that was a fun experience. thankfully the fire department was able to contain it before it spread
oh! and there was a kid who burned up part of oregon’s columbia river gorge four years ago. drought and fire do not mix well. or maybe too well.
glad no one was hurt with the fire where you are. the melted cars are wild. hopefully insurance will cover getting them new ones
Dr Paul Young, Lancaster University and a lead author of the 2022 WMO/UNEP Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion, said: “There is no ‘tropical ozone hole’, driven by the author’s proposed electrons from cosmic rays or otherwise. The long term changes and year-to-year variability of the ozone layer in the tropical lower stratosphere (~15-20 km up) are well understood to be the result of both human-driven processes and natural drivers.
Mayor Wilcox said he was notified via text message by the council to swear in Loehmann on Tuesday.
“I found it weird…because we don’t swear people in that way anymore…the way we used to,” he said. Now, you can take your oath of office to the notary and have them sign it for free, right here in town at the bank…I thought it was a little weird right from the beginning."
I wonder if an angry council-person rigged the swearing-in to draw attention.
I called my apt complex to confirm some moving out issues and asked them about the fire.
So I forgot that in some of the car ports on the side is a little room with a dumpsters for trash. You can see it in the first pic. Someone put some spent fireworks which evidently still had an ember in them and it just grew and eventually became a literal dumpster fire that destroyed the car port and cars.
The stupidity of people with fireworks is mind boggling. Those things are supposed to be literally drowned before tossing. And now a bunch of ppl have had their lives seriously disrupted, if the damages don’t end in their financial ruin
This is the opposite of “Fuck Today”, but I wanted to tell someone and why not strangers on the internet.
My GF was previously in an abusive relationship. Last night she found out her abuser had died. I have never seen her so happy and exuding a sense of relief. I can only hope this helps her heal further from her horrible experiences.
