Also, about 19:16. Give or take. More or less.
I don't really know what to make of it
and i didn't even 'like' the page
I wouldn't go that far pal.
Some of my best friends go to the tech.
that place I hang out and drink coffee at and pretend to read books
Some guy let a firework off from a 4th floor window that went into the roof and set it alight.
Stayed in a hotel for a week for free, it was brilliant. Everyone on the top 2 floors had to be relocated due to the damage from the smoke and sprinklers. I was on the ground floor so my room was fine.
When I was in Vietnam in October I started chatting to some guy sat in a cafe who 'survived' the great Ribble Hall fire too. Small world. Saw him at M83 last week, too.
but there was a small fire in my university dorm. I had stayed on campus that summer to work in the admission office and was actually giving a tour of said dorm to prospective students and parents when some guy comes running down the stairwell screaming, "FIRE!" The alarms started going off and my fellow tour guide and I had to maintain our cool, explain that the tour group would not be seeing a dorm room today, and get them out of there safely. Surprisingly, the tour group was not phased.
The fire itself didn't do any damage because the sprinklers came on immediately and ruined that entire floor of the dorm. Thankfully, I was living on another floor so my room was just fine. The fire department made sure we couldn't get back into the dorm until around 8:00 that night. That was annoying.
nothing as exciting as buildings with people in going up, though. the halls were on the site of an old mental hospital, it was one of the spooky buildings on the periphery that hadn't yet been bulldozed.
fun though. well, not that I'd know, because I missed it. just like I missed the one time it snowed and everybody was having snowball fights. and the blackout.
Oh yeah I went to Strathclyde Uni. Got a first degree. Burn.
"The editor of the Times has publicly apologised for a reporter who hacked into an email account to write a story."
In other the words the Times editor is not in a hacking apology but has in fact apologised for hacking. Even "Times editor issues public apology" would be better. "Issues" may not be the precise verb but at least it's A verb.
anyway carry on.
the scientists having some fun farting onto lit matches unaware of the gases contained in the room at that time...lethal
Bigger crowd, much more scope for your sort of thing.
They had a fire caused by "hot tar dripping in through the roof, on which builders were working, and into a fume hood, consequently filling the department with smoke."
Great work, builders.
they evacuated and stuff but no explosion or injury and in any case it was 3 hours before I started so PRETTY WEAK in comparison
:( that was my building.
In November there was a fire at my university and someone was stabbed just meters from the building that was on fire. This is all about 100 yards from my own home. Let's just say the blue flashing lights made a nice atmosphere in my room that evening.
Wendesday is generally the day people don't have any classes.
the uni just text me to confirm the building would be closed. Wierd.
I will be closed tomorrow because I am on fire and it hurts.

THE FAIR'S ON FIRE!
Bit of an anticlimax. We just had to stand around outside for ages and ages waiting for them to let us go home.
