OK, after somebody pushed my buttons last week. (firestudent) I just could not deal with this half A$$ dance around the subject crap anymore.† OK, in no particular order.

    C’mon Anchor, my friend out East, Firestudent was only trying to be his politically correct self, as we bosses have to do, however, I feel your pain my Brother! Let’s see, to answer your statement, If you don’t know the difference between an intake and a discharge after being a DO for 15+ years, you might be marginal.That’s was my version of PC,Defended Firestudent and handed you an awesome example, if I do say so myself, oh wait Bro, I just did!

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
Ben, Thanks a lot for your comment! You're definitely right that there needs to be hoseline protection given to the guys working above the fire; and that a TIC should be utilized when attempting VES techniques.
