A general talking shop for any subject under the sun (even Monty Python). This would also be a good place to make suggestions about the site itself or about these forums (or "fora", if you're particularly pedantic).
I have seen it before, but I am thinking no one in fire service can be that stupid. Therefore wonder if it is actually a set up for an observation test, something like 'What is wrong here?'

Here's the comment from one of Firemen responsible after the photo went viral:
"Hey, this past week our funny photo went viral throughout the whole world. Thousands of shares and likes in many different countries!
Once and for all: The picture was taken in Belgium, in a small village called Bornem. After a minor intervention, we had some time left near the railway to make this picture. Since there were no trains running at all for a week due to maintenance works, we can state that our joke was a real success! "
