    Redwood illustrates very clearly that swine can enter your flue.





    I always use a chimney cap to prevent this from happening.

    Hey That Guy,

    I like your lightning.

    What do you propose the govn should use? I saw a picture on yahoo where they are looking like bee keepers. Here I will see if I can find it.

    I found it,

    Yikes...

    I don't know how that lightning got there.

    A course on actual vs. perceived risk.
    ". . .that people will accept risks 1,000 greater if they are voluntary (e.g. driving a car) than if they are involuntary (e.g. a nuclear disaster)."
    So far, the likelihood of you or I getting this is about equal to being hit by lightning (not that shown, of course).

    BTW, I used to have hair like in the photo, but not quite that long.

    Regarding Mr. Hodgkins, I've heard that you are supposed to hate and confront him, every single day. You're probably already doing that.

    I suspect about 30,000 of them went down drains. Maybe this is a complaint for the plumbing section.

    We're at level four guys.

    Phase 1: No viruses circulating among animals causing infections in plumbers

    Phase 2: Animal influenza virus causes infection in plumbers, and is considered potential pandemic threat

    Phase 3: Influenza causes sporadic cases in plumbers, but no significant electrician-to-remodeler transmission

    Phase 4: Verified plumber-to-electrician transmission able to cause forum-level outbreaks. Significant increase in risk of a pandemic

    Phase 5: Plumber-to-remodeler transmission in at least two sections of the forum. Strong signal pandemic imminent

    Phase 6: Virus spreads to another forum. Global pandemic under way
