This particular shirt seems to be worn by people who like to run around in a panic. I was just recently watching a person run with a red face, and to me it was an example of running scared. Technology is good fire is scary but also scary to think about. One of the reasons why we don’t panic in areas where there is a lot of fire is because we are still afraid of the unknown.
In our area of the county, it is quite common for people to be afraid of the unknown in the face of fire. This is a good thing though because the fire can provide a nice distraction from the unknown, and it can make us feel less alone and less afraid. I’ve seen some bad-ass fire trucks and fire fighters and some people who would go to great lengths to keep a fire at bay.
What this means is that if a fire starts, we should be able to safely retreat behind some kind of wall. It also means that fire should not be a thing we fear. We don’t need to feel afraid of fire, we need to feel comfortable with it.
I have to agree with that sentiment. Fire is scary and a lot of people fear it, and it is hard to be comfortable with something that scares us. We shouldn’t worry about fire, but we should be able to feel comfortable around it.
That is exactly what fire is for, to make us feel safe. And yes, as I said above, there are things that scare me that fire can be used to scare. However, it is a tool that we need to use to protect ourselves. As a firefighter you have to constantly have the ability to push back against something that is trying to kill you or you.
As technology continues to become more complex and sophisticated, so will the tools that are used to protect us. Because technology is a tool, in the end it is just a tool. It will never be as useful as we want it to be. Fire is a tool, so to speak. To make ourselves more comfortable with it, we should be able to find the right tool for the job.
I do believe it is a good idea to keep a tool on hand in our toolbox that will help us in time of need. And for the same reason, I also believe it is a good idea to keep a fire alarm system that will be turned off when you are in a burning building. We don’t get to choose our tools of survival, after all. Fire is an energy system that has been around since the beginning of time.
I like to think that we can still be a little bit creative with the tools we have. For example, I have a “fire extinguisher” that I’ve been using to put out fires all day long. But I’m not sure I really have an effective fire-extinguisher. I just need to take my time, make sure the tool is working properly, and do the most important thing first.
The internet is filled with examples of cool stuff that is just so useless. Like when a few years ago I watched a video on how to use a blender to make cookies. This is such a basic tool. Why even bother making cookies in the first place? This blender video was so basic it was hilarious. It made me laugh for several minutes. Now I know how to make cookie dough in a blender, but I’m still a little confused why I’m using a blender to make cookies.
Technology is the internet. It’s the internet that has made it such a powerful tool for so many people. There are all kinds of things to use it for that most of us don’t know about or aren’t willing to learn.
