I indulged in a bit of pyromania this weekend. To get warmed up we threw about four feet of dry pine tree into a fire and watched the flames grow to 20+ feet and die back down in a matter of seconds. If you've never tried that before, I highly recommend saving your Christmas tree this year and setting fire to it after it's nice and brown. Of course, if you end up burning your house down I will disavow all knowledge of said recommendation.

The picture to the right is from a couple hours later. If anyone asks, it's a large brush fire, since that's what the burning permit says. If the brush pile accidentally ended up mixed in with an old shed there's not much I can do, right?

Further wisdom gained: Insect repellent + Open wound = PAIN. You heard it here first.
