    I know this is fake because they said the cops are well trained.

      Nah, it’s just a question of incorrect and missing punctuation:

      American cops are, well, “trained”…

    Being an American police officer is like a really shit point and click adventure game where the only puzzle is “use gun on man”

      Is that a line from zero punctuation?

      Its blatant lies and misrepresentations like this that make me really dislike people like you.

      Clearly another option would be “use gun on dog”.

      not really true. there’s also ‘use gun on dog’. and ‘beat restrained man for confession’.

      Allegedly this emergency measure was taken in order to create a pressure wave to extinguish the fire. The method has proven to be effective, according to the fire service.

      Good luck doing that with bullets…

        every self respecting 'murican has exploding bullets. and enough to deal with a pesky little fire. I mean, we need entire caches in case Russia China Mexicans Canadians Them Woke Yankees invade.

        (/s, if it wasn’t obvious enough. )

          Them Woke Yankees

          I read that as Thom Yorke Yankees at first and was confused about why Radiohead scare them so much 😄

    For forest fires there’s a technique that is very often used called “back burning” where you light fires in front of where a large fire is spreading, so the large fire meets up where you start the smaller fire and it runs out of fuel it can burn, since the small fire already ate the fuels up.

    Well they’ve made a gun that shoots what look like large paintballs that are filled with potassium nitrate and this lets you start the smaller fires up from further away. The balls are named Dragon Eggs and the gun that shoots them is called a Pyroshot.

    So yes. We have made a gun to put out fires with.

        My arms aren’t very fast, so I guess I’m out. Maybe Lanky Kong can be a contender though.

    Obviously by extinguish they mean shoot, and by “fire” they mean people of color.

      Hey, I’ve played enough early 2000’s shooters to know that if that guy so much as bumps the cop he’ll light on fire too.
