    Fire Poll

    A survey conducted to test a sociological hypothesis of mine. How long ago were you last in the presence of fire? That is, directly, within touching distance. Fire of any kind. Even a candle or cigarette lighter counts.

    Please answer to the best of your ability.

    If it doesn’t then I guess the last time I saw fire was this morning when I made eggs on my gas range

    A few weeks ago when I was at the town center. The restaurants have these giant gas lit flames outside.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    I guess either two or four days ago? Would have been the last time I happen to walk out on the smoke deck to interview a patient. I haven’t don’t that today due to having most of my afternoon being wrapped up in a hold and IM meds.

    1 week or less. I always light candles on Friday when I visit my grandma, so that's my main encounter with fire.

    Mostly for cooking, but sometimes I'll play with a lighter for fun.

    Couple months ago. Some kind of technician helping my mom and me rehearse the steps for starting up my parents' old gas fireplace that they hadn't used in years.
    I found out long ago
