Bikeyface was among the people watching a car go up in flames on Brookline Avenue at Longwood around 2:15 p.m.

Is she and Swirly the same chick?
No, they're not. She's the author of cute, interesting cartoons about bicycling in the Boston area.
... of this asinine post?
I'm bored at work and I killed ten seconds. GFY.
Bikeyface's bike-mounted missile launcher for cars parked in the bike lane is working nicely!
This one is on the sidewalk too. Next to what appears to be a wooden fence. How nice that they've made their car problems other peoples problems as well.
Yeah, all burning cars should be parked squarely in a travel lane, not near the curb. It's just the polite thing to do.
1. cars are not getting by anyway
2. it would be easier for the BFD to deal with
3. it would damage a lot less property
Just because your car has just erupted in flames, that's no reason not to find a proper parking space.
Is there any limit to which you won't break out your extreme hatred of all things motorized? What would you like them to do in this situation?
How does putting it on the sidewalk help ... anything?
In fact, it complicates the situation for firefighters.
What are the presidential candidates saying they'll do to address this epidemic of cars bursting into flames?
Trump alternates between saying there will be no car fires when he's president adding that Obama is personally responsible for all car fires in the last 50 years and saying that his car fires are going to be YUGE, burning only the best cars and visible from space.
Clinton has a detailed, 100 point plan on dealing with car fires (which was mostly written by the UAW) but quickly changed her position blaming the fires on Wall St once Bernie started campaigning on that view.
They advocate leaving the fire mid-term if it gets boring. Alternately, if you are getting too hot from the fire, then just jump in the Charles.
Johnson/Weld would say if you didnt pay your monthly (privatized) firefighter company fee, they should just let it burn.
