My wife and I have an 8 month old. Last week I was coming home from work and just as I was coming up the driveway, she came running down the driveway barefoot. She saw me and yelled at me to call 911, there was a fire in the kitchen
I asked her where our daughter was because she wasn't with her, and she said she was inside and to call 911 fast.
We live somewhere rural and response times are slow, I immediately was scared the house would go up with our daughter inside before the fire department came. I tried to run inside and she tried to stop me yelling again and again that I couldn't go in, there was a fire...
I went in, the way the house is laid out you have to go though the kitchen to get to the hallway with the nursery. There was a grease fire on the stove in a pan and the wall above the stove and the curtains nearby was catching. I put out the pan by putting a lid on and then put out the wall and curtains with the fire extinguisher. Then I immediately went to the nursery and got our daughter.
Going back outside my wife was gone, I soon found out she went down the road looking for a neighbor who's phone she could use.
But at the time, and for a while, I was really upset that her reaction to a fire had been to run out without our baby and to even try to stop me from going inside before the fire department had come. And that she put her in danger by not trying to put the fire out with a lid or baking tray over the grease fire at first when it was smaller, or trying to use the fire extinguisher. If I hadn't come home when I did I don't want to think about what would have happened
The fire department showed up but the fire was already out, and my wife returned too, driven by a neighbor. I was angry with her for the reasons I said and she just totally clammed up.
I went to stay with my brother and sister and law that night, taking our daughter. And my wife was very angry with me over it, saying the next day "how dare i leave her alone after that, she needed someone to drive her to the urgent care after injuring her feet running barefoot"
That upset me even more, that that was what she was worried about, not what had almost happened when she ran out of the house on fire without our baby. I've been staying at my brother's for about a week now. I don't know what to do, or if I was in the wrong for being so angry
AITA for how I reacted to my wife starting an accidental kitchen fire then running away leaving our baby in the house?
I just want you to know that years from now, when we are all paid off on our debt, and starting businesses, and buying homes and apartments and paying for pet surgery and medicine, back rents and back mortgages, daycare and baby food and 529c's, brand name meat for dinner...
I will remember this moment. You will remember this moment. Let us bask in this glory forever 🚀🚀🚀🚀

My (32F) brother (43M), his wife (40?F), and their two kids (9F and 15M) have been staying with me for a little over two weeks now because they lost their jobs due to coronavirus and were evicted. Four people is obviously a large addition, but I didn't want them to be homeless and they assured me it'd be a temporary stay.
Two days ago, my nephew set my bathroom on fire for a tiktok. From what he told me after, there's some kind of trend where you draw a shape on your mirror with hairspray and then you light it on fire, and it's supposed to go out on it's own without any damage. Well, his fire spread onto a nearby stack of towels and got out of control. We all had to evacuate, but luckily I live relatively close to a firestation so the damage wasn't that bad. My guest bathroom is scorched and will need repairs, but the rest of my home is okay.
I think that my brother and SIL had to have been wildly negligible to allow this to happen, especially considering the lighter he used was my brother's, meaning he must have taken it from him at some point. I'm asking them to leave within the next week because I don't want to risk something of this nature happening again. They've apologized and asked me to reconsider because it was an accident, no one was hurt in the end, they'd be homeless if I kicked them out now, and to think of my niece who did nothing. I'm not going to charge them for the repairs because they flat out can't afford it, but I no longer feel safe living with them.
I saw Marjorie Taylor Greene say they're real, Bill Maher was joking about them the other night too. I've seen multiple comments on reddit about them, some seeming serious, but most of them joking. I've seen A LOT of people on YouTube claim they're real, without any apparent irony.
I don't get it. Do people really believe this? Is it a joke I'm not in on? Is it satire? Parody?
NZXT has issued the above statement in response to Gamers Nexus' video, and will be supplying a replacement PCIe riser to owners who have previously requested nylon screw kits.
Gamers Nexus investigated the PCIe riser fire issue and has concluded that the design of the riser has serious issues and poses a major fire hazard. The nylon screw fix issued by NZXT does not address the inherent design problem with the riser, and so the riser is not safe to have installed in your system.
