Fire needs three things in order to burn: heat, fuel, and oxygen. On a normal day your home contains fuel (things that could burn) and oxygen in the air, so you prevent fires by never letting it get hot enough – not starting a fire. Meanwhile if your house does catch fire and nobody does anything, it’ll burn until there’s nothing left that can burn – at the end there’s heat and oxygen, but no fuel.

What can happen when a fire gets developed in a house is that it can burn until there’s barely any oxygen left in a room. There’s heat and fuel, but without that last ingredient the fire grinds to a halt.

Now you open a door to that room (or a window breaks) and a whole rush of oxygen-rich air goes flooding in. All those hot flammable items catch fire in an instant, creating a fireball that can blast out of the open door or window.

So, if you’re ever unlucky enough to find yourself in a fire, touch each door and door handle before you open it. If it’s hot, your salvation is not on the other side, so leave that door closed – and watch out for being above the window of a room that’s on fire. The heat’s going to shatter the glass at some point, and when it does you don’t want to be above it.

    “Cost of a Rattlesnake bite in America”
    What should it cost?

      I’m thinking not as much as a house. Maybe 1,500?

        Ok, so do you just assume that this emergency is just a quick needle and a “have a good day, young man”?
        First off, the anti-venom is VERY expensive to produce and manufacture. So, by your understanding, it should be the same cost as an asprin.
        Second, this person OBVIOUSLY spend multiple days in intensive care. How many days? How many people had to take care of him? I guess by your understanding, it should be the same cost as a few days at a Days Inn.
        Third, this person need x-rays… your cost? The same as developing 35mm film, right?
        Fucking use your head, dummy. Doctor’s don’t spend 8 years in med school to work for peanuts so some moron can get a selfie next to a water moccasin.
