So the news has been gearing up to talk about this video of a firefighter dealing with a car that ended up exploding in his face for the past hour, but they keep wanting to talk about the east coast earthquake and Steve Jobs stepping down from the top spot at Apple. So I just went ahead and looked it up.

This is insanely awesome. I mean, "awesome" gets thrown around a lot and overused, but... goddamn, this is AWESOME!!!! Watch.

Just exchanged the video for the original one that was shot. Apparently this happened in Los Angeles, on Wilshire. I guess the car just blew up.

Someone was saying this looks like a magnesium explosion and the water was what set it off. Other sources claim it was probably the airbag going off that caused the explosion.

Either way, the man has balls of steel.

I wanna be that guy when I grow up.

That's seriously amazing.

I'm showing this video the next time I get shit for giving firefighters my discount at my work. The lousey 15 percent off I can share will never be enough.

Well, firefighting is the kind of job you never get enough appreciation for. Kind of like garbage collecting, honest police and detective work, and radiation surveying.

Though really, most of the lack of appreciation comes from the politicians and businessmen being asses. D:

Oh well, I'll still be one of those people who can relate to 'em. They end up working for something greater than themselves, regardless of the risk involved in doing that sort of job.
