My niece and nephew-in-law gave me a copy of that movie. I made the mistake of critiquing it in their presence and they haven't given me a movie since.

(lol about the Cheney-style VP in it)

Actually, no. They gave me that one because they knew I liked sci-fi but apparently had no idea what to get. This year they gave me iTunes.

Vaguely, perhaps.

There was so much wrong with that film that it was hard to maintain that suspension of disbelief - and I'm not even formally trained in the subject.


:(

you're no fun



I've got this great idea! Since we're holed up here in the New York Public Library, let's burn the tables, chairs, desks and shelves -- then we'll burn the stick fiddling books.

Truth be told, the furniture burns better than books do. The pages are so tightly packed that they don't burn well. You have to tear them apart to get them to fully combust. 100 year old wood is much easier to burn and releases more heat.

if it was me, I’d totally burn EVERYTHING in the place before I’d consider burning a single book.

Except Twilight and 50 Shades of Gray. Those stick fiddlers I’d merrily burn ;)

That's why the one guy say "Hey guys! There's a whole section on tax law that we can burn!" when the one guy was complaining that they were burning classic books. ;)

No, just someone who burns his junk here on the farm, and I know that when you burn a stack of paper, you have to keep stirring it or it just singes the edges and won't burn the entire stack. The oxygen simply can't get to the center of the stack to burn it. Wood has passages and pores through it that the air can get through, paper doesn't.

Once built I don't think I could use the wood and ruin the masterpiece. ;)


Also we have similar houses on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific around SoCal, though none extend quite that far out.
