    Default Trolls : Building a Fire

    To build a fire, you need three things : fuel, kindling temperature, and oxygen.

    Trolls think they have fuel for a fire. Then there is friction of pushback from others. Finally, repeating the lie gives it oxygen online.

    No friction, no oxygen. Kill the fire before someone gets burned.

    This has been a public service announcement.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    In more recent years, a fourth component – the uninhibited chain reaction – has been added to explain fire. This chain reaction is the feedback of heat to the fuel to produce the gaseous fuel used in the flame. In other words, the chain reaction provides the heat necessary to maintain the fire.
    Borrowed from the NFPA

    We've moved on from the triangle but your analogy still works. Beware the uninhibited chain reaction

    Distant inlaws live in Bastrop TX. She sees lots of stickers on gas station pumps blaming Biden for gas prices. See enough of them and the hook is set.

    Jim, don't blame Bastrop or stickers on pumps for her problem. Hell they do have the internet in Bastrop. One can even receive liberal Austin news for free on OATV. I am working about an hour south of there and have managed to absorb a bunch of F Brandon flags and the like without my critical thinking melting down.

    Fire is wood rusting away very very quickly.
