I did recently get an email from them about their plans changing somehow, but I didn't dive too far into it since I've made the migration to imgur.

Does burning it protect it from weathering?

Thats true, probably don't have to stain/seal it or pressure wash it to clean it. Pretty practical for a fence.

Yeah, protects it from weathering, pests, UV, etc. Basically free preservative

Well thats good. Fireworks with out all the BS of like a public firework display is the best. I was out at a friends, but I knew some people who went to to display in Swansboro, and their barge caught fire and blew all the fireworks off in like 30 seconds and sent a couple people to the hospital.

There was plenty of BS unfortunately, including a garage down the street from me catching on fire, was put out quick enough to not cause any damage but still.

Having my racecar in the garage made me nervous all night after seeing that.

Lost brakes (haven't looked for the cause yet) at the end of a pretty fast straight and it got wadded up (wasn't me driving).
