WWHGD?

When something is annoying you... What Would Hat Guy Do?

My neighbor has a fire going in his fireplace all day, almost every day. I find this ridiculous. WWHGD?

Find Santa, kill Him, and put His corpse in the guy's fireplace to make it look like it was his fault Santa is dead because he didn't put the fire out.

or fuck with the flue somehow..

or firecrackers?

dynamite?

the possibilities of fireplace pranks are endless!

He'd first borrow a fire hose from the local firehouse.
He'd then hook it up to the hydrant nearest the house.
Then he'd walk straight into the man's house, dragging the hose.
And extinguish the fire, with the stream at full blast.
And leave, without ever saying a single word.

I really hope I'm not your neighbor.

And, if I'm not, that my actual neighbors don't read XKCD.

Separation of neighbors and hat-guy philosophy, that's really what I'm looking for.

I thought of one: install a flamethrower pointing down his chimney activated by a smoke detector so that when he starts a fire, the flamethrower burns up all the wood and ends it quickly.

If this neighbor pissed BHG off in some way, I assume he'd show him some excessive video, full of lies, about why burning logs in your fire is horrible for the environment and starving children in Canada. Then when the guy tells him to fuck off, he plants a realistic animatronic baby in the midst of the flames.

Seriously one of the best comics Munroe's done.

And I second the bamboo idea. Bet he'd soil himself.

teehee.

I like the idea of just entering his house and putting it out without saying anything, though.

Maybe pump liquid nitrogen down the chimney.

Ouch.

I'm guessing, maybe knock on the door, wait for the neighbor to answer, then press a detonator that makes the house implode everywhere except the doorway? I don't know. :roll:

BHG is a pretty poor choice of role model in that he's an unrepentant sociopath.

Hope this helps.

That is the point of this thread.

I really didn't mean for this to be just specific to my example. Maybe I should have put this in forum games?

He would roundhouse kick the neighboor into the fireplace and watch him burn..

Ops, sorry, wrong hero ;)

The bamboo thing, but they should be filled with Sodium... For when he pours water to quench it....

The people who have watched that braniac video and become obsessed with alkali metals are really beginning to piss me of now. "Oh yes lets put some caesium on it like they did on branic." realisticly your not even going to get an explosion and even if you do a proper explosive is probably about 100 times cheaper and easier to obtain

Now I didn't see the Brainic episode (only saw later that they put dynamite to make a bigger explosion). And it is not about the explosion, is just the lighting flash that goes that is awesome. If BHG would like to explode he would pump a canister of pure oxygen down the chimney.

Obviously throw a load of magnesium ribbon down the chimney.
