Fires: they burn houses down and ruin lives. But they also make fireworks work. smores smore and pipes smoke. OH THE DICHOTOMY! But what's a fire department to do when they get a rush-hour call that a child has set a recycling bin full of his sister's Barbies ablaze and the fire has spread to the neighbor's yard? Order pizza and crack a cold one? I think not... The City of Liverpool in England has come up with a novel solution, and is testing a couple of specially equipped firefighting motorcycles. The bikes can be deployed when a full response from a fleet of full-sized engines isn't required, such as small car fires or so-called 'anti-social' fires. The bikes will carry both a tank of water, and a supply of fire extinguishing foam, and the riders will wear special suits that are designed to work for both riding and firefighting. Smart thinking, Liverpool. I'm almost tempted to move back home. Whoa whoa whoa -- I said almost. Call me when there's a firefighting jetpack. Ok, Ok, Singapore has had them since 1998... that still doesn't beat Liverpool.
