Terry prefers the informal among his peers while Holt prefers the formal. Terry also occasionally delves in to the third person, making it impossible to tell if Terry is being quoted or described.

Re: ITT: We make xkcd slightly worse.

Grease also floats, burning grease doubly so. So if a fire starts, the first instinct is to throw water on it, which just spreads the flames.

Smother a grease fire. Use an extinguisher. Hell, throw a shitload of salt on it. Don't throw water.
