Thousands of professional firefighters can’t get this fire under control. Thousands. Supported by further thousands of voluteers including some selfless heroes from California Department of Corrections (inmates). They can not get it under control.
At last count (that I read), 56 people have died. I take no pleasure in this in any way. BUT DAMN! If there are thousands of people fighting this fire and are not making any progress for putting it out, why on earth would you stay in the path like you are going to fight it with a garden hose?
Don’t be an idiot. Your stuff can be replaced. You can’t. If they tell you to leave just fucking leave.
So after this video went viral and The Weather Channel came up with the lamest of excuses possible, Mike Seidel went silent on September 13th.
Well it does appear he has resurfaced after a 6 week hiatus though I have not seen him actually on TV.
So watch the video, listen to the lame ass excuse The Weather Channel gives, then look where his feet are. Less than a yard from… pavement.
Dude you are so busted, worthless and shady. Sit the fuck down.

With all this being known based on my possession of a Georgia Weapons Carry License, look at the man/woman sitting in the next booth over from you and your family. What exactly do you know about them?
Yet you want to make me out to be a villain? A “bad guy”? My personally owned weapons, which I have carried for over 35 years have never hurt a single person on this planet. I can’t think of any of my friends who carry weapons that can not say the same thing (giver or take a few years).
Please tell me exactly what laws you would change or add, that will not infringe on my right to self defense. Explain how they would be written as well as enforced. I’ll wait right here.
How often do we see this on our Facebook feeds? How many of your friends (or you) have had your credit/debit cards compromised? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a post where someone mentioned their credit/debit card was used in East St Louis at a Walmart to buy a 65 inch TV. Or something similar. What I find funny, is that in spite of the title here you are reading this! YOU CLICKED THE LINK!
How many of you connect to public wifi “hotspots”? You stop in at Starbucks and hook right on up to that internet and start doing stuff and things. You may even make a purchase on your phone while connected to the public hotspot.
Or you log into your email and check that. Then all of a sudden your are getting tons of junk email or “Message Delivery Failed” messages.
So while you are sitting there drinking your latte, that guy over in the corner with his laptop open is “sniffing” the internet connection. He’s collecting data packets and after enough of them are collected, a pattern is formed and he has your passwords. Or in most cases with most people, your password. Singular. Because most of the computing public has one password they use for everything.
The software he uses is readily available for download most anywhere. It does take some amount of knowledge to use and is not just a click and run package. Generally. Some are that simple.
So how do you protect yourself?
I use a VPN on my phone, laptop and any other devices I use to connect to wifi. Including my home wifi. The one I prefer is called Private Internet Access. It’s inexpensive and mindlessly simply to use. Click the link or the image for a review. It’s on my Macbook Pro, my Windows PC and my Android phone.
If you engage in any of the following, you should certainly consider adding strong public wifi security encryption layers to protect your privacy and your data:
- Check your e-mail in a public wifi hotspot
- Log in to social networking websites in a public wifi hotspot
- Log in to bank accounts in a public wifi hotspot
- Share sensitive data online while in a public wifi hotspot
- Wish to secure your connection from prying eyes in a public wifi hotspot
- Use the internet at a library.
- Use the internet at a cafe, bookstore or hotel.
- Use the internet at an airport.
