Only you can prevent Plasma fires!" - Smokey By Smokey the Space-Bear
This is a message for all of you who are both having trouble with fire because you're all fucking idiots who don't know how to rollYou don't know how to do general shit that will keep you alive, as well as those who are too fucking stupid to NOT throw a lit match/have a giant grief-boner to not care into a large pocket of plasma gas. unsure of what to do when plasma gas fills the station!
Lets quickly start with a scenario. You've just come aboard the station, and there's fire everywhere, and people on fire everywhere, all dead, and you happen to step on one corpse. Now you're on fire.
You're fucked, you say to yourself, behind the monitor. Yes, you, the big, blubbery kid who is shoving his face with potato chips (probably) while playing these nerdy little games and watching your weird Japanese cartoons (definitely).
But enough about that! I'm here to teach you that you're not, actually truly boned upon becoming a large ball of fire! There is indeed a way to escape and remove the burning smell of your flesh, and inside bits!
That's it. That's honestly all there is to it. If you're not standing in fire/on a corpse that's on fire you should roll and from there put yourself out. And that's honestly there all that's needed. Just, don't try to step on any more burning corpses.
Now then, lets go back, to the past, before you arrived, as somebody else...
You are the janitor, minding you're own business on a perfectly normal day in Space Station 13 when all of a sudden you see a large pocket of plasma gas in the hallway!
it slowly starts filling up the hallway and soon the rest of the station, and you've identified that it's coming from a vent pump! You've got a right mind to try and weld the vent...But then you'd be ignited, and you'd ignite the plasma right? So whats your next best idea? You think that burning away the plasma is a good idea. right?
By setting that plasma on fire, not only are you risking your own life to get rid of some perfectly fine, somewhat breathable gas like plasma, but you're also putting the lives of others in risk too. Lets face it, buddy ol' pal, the other residents here are mindless sheep.
They'll walk through that fire and not realize that their own flesh is burning off until its too late, and then those weird voices inside your head will scream at you and you'll feel like a dumb-ass, and then they'll remove you from this realm of existence, and place you into a dark void where you will slowly go insane, washing back and forth between consciousness and unconsciousness while also being kicked in the balls 24/7 by a machine.
And you don't want that! So, what else is there to do?
Well, the best thing to do bud, is to just leave it be.
Let it live it's new live, free and unshackled from the controls of R&D, from the walls of Atmos, from it's absolutely useless purpose other then to be used as fuel for the engines. Just let it live its new life!
Or, if you really want that gas gone, try to find a way to suck it up, and place it somewhere else. A little less close to the public, perhaps, in a nice, big container.
The point is, setting it on fire will do nothing more then cause problems, and you know that causing problems is ba-
holy shit the fucking clown just threw an active Zippo Lighter into the plasma.
Now everything around you is on fire, the clown that threw the zippo into the plasma just walked on in to the gas, honking his horn while slowly being engulfed, and everything starts blowing up and shits going down, and you're on fire.
But wait! you know how to put yourself out! And after doing so, you make you're way to the emergency shuttle like a good worker, minding everything else as the fire starts to spread across the station, the captain going insane and screaming things down the microphone, etc.
But the important thing here is, you survived! Sure, you've got a few burns, but that's nothing that some ointment won't fix! And you are not the one who is getting those strange voices! The clown is!
So remember, kids, adults, goats,
