David Psenechnuk at DMP Productions/FireBuffVideo.com made me laugh with this undated video from Detroit he titled "How many fire buffs can you fit on a fire scene?".
Could this fire buff convergence also be referred to as a flash mob? And were fire buffs well ahead of their time and are actually some of the original flash mobsters?
Wikipedia describes a flash mob as "a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse".
Of course "pointless" is in the eye of the beholder. We don't see the videos fire buffs provide STATter911.com and other fire service media as pointless, but clearly some in the Detroit Police Department do.
