@Tynde both you and the person who said that have a very narrow understanding of profit.

@Tynde Volunteer firefighters are useless as shit.

There was a fire 400 meters from their fire station.

Not only did they arrive LAST, they arrived after a fire brigade from 30km away arrived!

From my experience, useless as a firefighting unit. They do some nice stuff for kids, though.

@Tynde > open source coders
Somebody, throw money at them, quick!;;;;

I promise I'm not really like this 


Um, actually, not having your entire town burn down benefits you, so It's just an "indirect profit"

The market is like, inescapable. It binds all living things in the perfect harmony of nature.

please ignore all the weird and unnatural stuff it does, that doesn't count.

@Tynde omg that's such a good example, next time I talk about this I'm gonna bring up Wikipedia. Literally the single largest source of learning in human history.

@Tynde it’s the most asinine opinion that falls apart with the faintest amount of investigation, I too enjoy this graphic

@Tynde can't think "Volunteer Firefighters" without being teleported back into my year six library tho #VFD
