Question
So, open fires are not allowed, understood, but what about if you use one of the emerging 'fire bowl' things, like one I saw being sold at Costco today. Two feet across, made of metal, has a semi grill top to it, for people who want a backyard fire without the whole scarred lawn thing going on?

Are these allowed, or is it simply, no open flame whatsoever to avoid any need for a Black Rock Fireman's Guild or something?

Quotes worth remembering
Lately, I have found comfort and sometimes insightful discomfort in quotes forwarded to me by friends who have turned to historically notable persons who have engaged in world domination by means of war. (Is there any other way?)

Today, I will share two of the most stand-out quotes sent to me. Please feel welcome to pitch in with any quotes that you might like to reflect upon here as well.


1.
"Of course the people don't want war. But leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or not voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and
denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

-- Hermann Goering Nazi Reichsmarshal and Luftwaffe chief, at the Nuremberg trials...



2.
"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."

-- Julius Caesar

hi. This might be a bit...random. About art cars.
first, why im here. i did a search for "art cars" to see who was interested. there were two communties, since there are more people here, i decided to ask here.
i hope im not..crossing lines by asking this randomly.

ive loved the idea of an art car since i first saw one created by a highschool in my area, and i recently purchased a truck (for all of 500 bucks)and, well im going to transform it. im tired of all the imports and lowered flashy blinky -light cars in my area. my question is how do i even go about making an art car. i understand the design part, thats no problem. but what kind of paint for the exterior? i dont want to become a rolling cop-magnet by attaching anything to it majorly, but i really want to put some of my art on it.

any help on what kind of paint would be greatly appreciated, actually, any tips what so ever would be great.

thanks,
chelle.
