Looks primed to be the hottest book since a certain Ray Bradbury tome.
Artemis
I would happily burn a book of ©rap lyrics; no ganja required.

Snoop is okay, but he's no Ray Bradbury.
G&C
I'd rather shoot at it, than burn it.
Artemis
Shoot at it, then burn it?

The binding is fine, and the match striker is nice. Cigarette papers are nice, too. Cigarette papers with stuff written on them, not so much. Crap lyrics on toilet paper - now that I might even buy.

G&C
I did think the match striker was a unique addition.
Tibro
Safety matches burn me up. I yearn for the "strike anywhere" days.
G&C
They don't let you play with real matches there?
Tibro
Seriously?


No.
G&C
What a burn.
Tibro
"Dangerous goods" - oxymoron or red-blooded boy labeling?

QUOTE
Why have people become so wary of the Strike Anywhere Match? Many stores have policies against carrying the matches, and they are classified as "Dangerous Goods" on both passenger aircraft and cargo-only aircraft flight ("U.N. 1331, Matches, strike-anywhere"). The chemicals used in the matches are known to be utilized in both methamphetamine production, and bomb making.


Don't let their relative scarcity slow you down, they're not illegal. Yet.
Artemis
They've been difficult to find for years now. They don't work as well as they used to, either, whether due to shoddy production or a change in the formula, I don't know.
Tibro
What's this world coming to? Even the quality of hazmat isn't what it used to be.

(Never mind that matches didn't used to be hazmat.)

This one is for my friend G&C.
If you just spend 10 minutes of your time watching this video, you will be a better person. I promise.

Artemis
Crazy diamond. The world would be so much less without you.
G&C
That was cool, Eric.
Thank you.


I still want to shoot the book…
Artemis
Once I shot a box of bank checks with a .17 magnum (frangible tip) at about fifty yards.

Paper and numbers all over the cow pasture.

I was pissed off because I had nothing to smoke.

Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope.
Provenance
Perhaps that's why dopes and money are soon parted.
G&C
How does one get the dope, if there is no money?

Enquiring minds want to know…
Provenance
There's a difference between dope and dopes.

As I understand it, the maxim proceeded from a favorable a priori situation.

When I was 5 and in the kindergarten, I was popular because I always had a box of matches with me. We made small bonfires in the nearby trenches (WWI fortifications around Helsinki) whenever we got the chance. The kindergarten, a villa from 1915, eventually burned down.


But that was in 2003.
G&C
Went back to Finnish the job?
Bruno Rygseck
No, just to blow.

On the smouldering embers, afterwards.
