Out of the Blue

When discussing the sidewalk grass yesterday with my buddy Devicer, he mentioned that my original thought on this was actually a reality, and that they sell flame throwers for just such an occasion!! These things are cheap, propane-powered, and some put out in excess of 1,000,000(!) B.T.U.s. The neat thing is that they can also be used in the winter on icy sidewalks (and I'm thinking they can also melt glass or provide heat for group camping trips to Pluto).

I couldn't recall the ad that was making the sound that needed to be killed, it's the noisy backpack ad... I'll look at getting the kibosh on that today. I'll also follow-up on the noisy Telco ad (since that is local in Canada I'm not sure how readily that can be addressed).
