I heard on the scanner it started in the ATM room. Maybe someone made "special deposit" this morning.

Haha. Figures one of the regular pervs would think of that.

Latest report, an employee saw smoke coming from an overhead light fixture this morning. By the time the FD got there the building was engulfed in flames and they couldn't put it out because of the very high winds. All they could do was keep it from spreading to other buildings and let it basically burn itself out.

The winds have been pretty bad today. Lots of trees and power lines down around the county.

Did anybody rescue the money? All that money up in smoke, I know the vault had to be safe but the cash drawers had to burn.

I honestly don't know but I thought cash drawers had to be fireproof too. Even if cash burnt up there I am sure it is all accounted for and info stored on servers off site. I don't think that is a major concern. The bank is already opening up in a temp location that was a credit union so the building is already equipped for banking. That is a good thing. Nobody is losing jobs or any valuables and everyone's accounts are safe. The only loss comes to the bank for having to rebuild the branch building and I'm sure their insurance will cover a big chunk of that cost.

not when they figure out that it was purposely torched for the insurance before the bank went under. ( sheer speculation on my part)

Sheer speculation and wrong, it was electrical. As stated earlier it was determined to have started from an overhead light fixture in the ATM room. I believe it. I've seen fluorescent ballasts short out internally, overheat, start leaking black goo and catch fire.

Ok. Whatever. Sometimes shit just happens and there is no conspiracy behind it, but if you want to go around wearing an aluminum foil beanie or automatically think that there must be some sort of bullshit going on behind the scenes for everything bad that happens then I guess that's up to you.

It was quick because it was obvious what caused the fire. The local banks are doing really great because everyone pulled their money out of the big banks and switched to local banks recently and they were doing pretty well before that anyway. They have no reason to pull some insurance fraud thing with arson.

Nope. They'd have to do a lot more than torch one branch to do that and they've got branches all over Oregon.

They had an Occupy thing in Waldport (population 2010) 16 miles south of here that three people showed up for. They stood around looking at each other for a few minutes and one of em suggested going to the park, another one said, "Is that legal?" Yeah real organized. They had a handful of picketers on some Occupy day in Newport that was a huge joke. They'd have gotten a lot more attention with a bikini car wash and made a little money while they were at it. I don't think anyone around here that would be involved in any of that crap is smart enough to succeed in setting a bank fire. So no, that theory doesn't fly either. You do need that pyramid I told you about to focus your mind and maybe come up with some more possibly viable conspiracy theories.

WTF? Boy, that's really reaching Fossil. How the hell do you get racism out of any of this?

If I have any racial prejudice it would probably be about Koreans and some other AZN people and that's just cuz they are impossible to fathom. It's not like I hate them or anything, I just don't understand their thinking processes especially when it comes to trying to do work for them and get paid for what you did. That and they're just generally annoying when they try to pull out the language barrier card on you. The only Korean person I've not had some negative experience with was a guy who was adopted as a baby and raised an American his whole life. So that to me indicates that it's not really a racial thing but a cultural thing.

Well that's cool. I've had a couple of bad experiences with Korean persons and my sisters boyfriend in Florida who does construction, painting, etc says the absolute worst customers so far have been Korean. I used to chat with a young Korean woman and she had a lot to say about that culture which supports the idea that they are difficult to deal with in many ways.

I knew a man from Afghanistan who was nothing like what we hear, read and see in the news either. He was a good an loyal friend to all. He thought American pot was shit though. "In my country we throw this shit away. We don't even bother feeding it to the goats."

Taser dude.

I've got a trick candy bar that shocks people, gives a pretty good jolt too. I removed the circuit in preparation to make it into a little mini-taser, I just haven't gotten around to the project yet. It won't do any damage to anyone but it'll shock em and they'll know it.

Blah it's easier to just buy a stun gun. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and it produces 6.8 million volts of pants peeing fun and I only had to pay $25 for it. I carry it everywhere I go, don't have a pistol right now so this and my knife will do until I find the pistol I want.

Here you are required to have an electronic weapon permit to carry one.

No permit needed in Arkansas. Self defense is a reasonable defense to assault charges and here if self defense can be seen by the police then assault charges will not be brought. Besides I would never use violence unless there is no other way out or to protect someone else. The last fight I was ever in was back in '73 when a chief petty office Seal team member beat the hell out of me.

I wasn't but he was. He was transferred to the states the next day and the rest of the seal team invited me to party with them over the next 96 hour weekend. That was a hell of a party lots of booze, topless women and private beach. Here lately I heard that Jessie Ventura was pretending to have been a Seal around the same time so it might have been him who beat me.

I think that's where the guy was transferred after, it seemed strange at the time he wasn't transferred back to the states.
