game i gotta tell ya man......... i have a friend who retired as a fire fighter. his line of work has allowed him to live in several wonderful places in the US over the yrs. it was about 10ish yrs back we were talking about one of the fires that was out of control when we got on the topic of how they get started so easy. the usual droughts, sun reflecting through busted up glass on the ground, arson, all the usual suspects right. then he looked at me and with the straightest face and said "you know how else they get started" as serious as one can be too. i thought we covered everything ya know. he looked at me and said "firemen". ok i was a bit confused but had to ask what he meant. he told me that there had been evidence for decades that some of those fires are straight up set by firemen. i didnt believe a word of it. he explained to me how firemen get paid and gave examples as to why they would do such a thing. to this day i often wonder. everything he said made so much sense to me and in like all fields im sure there are more than a few bad apples ya know. greg is a known BSer ok. but you can usually tell when hes on a "tall tale" ya know. not lies but he will pull your leg with a smile on his face often leaving you with the same. but game he was dead serious.
