Hmmm - setting fire to water......... yes it is possible, but one really has to try hard and be very careful as it involves very high pressures, weird catalysts and liquid oxygen.

(And if done right you end up with HTP which is used as the oxidizer in some rocket motors - you have been warned)

However setting hail onto fire is very different task - get a wind machine, a load of finely crushed ice and a BIG fire. Point the wind machine at the fire and turn it on then throw the crushed ice into the downstream side of the wind machine and watch the fun :-)
Sometime located elsewhere in the (un)known Universe
But most often found somewhere near the middle of the UK

Perhaps if the hail formed from acid rain?

With all of this burning hair polluting the atmosphere, that may not be much longer.

Dusts off the thread, the floor and the general manager. It's gonna happen again soon! Make ready for the influx of moon burners and hail wailers.

Just popping in to say hi. I'm guessing the outage will be on the longer side today. Something is up with the system with it going down on Sunday and never catching up with the assimilation. I'm hoping it won't get to the burning hair stage, but it might.

It is time to contemplate and speculate about Tuesday. The last few weeks the outages have been amazingly short, will the streak continue? Methinks Jord is starting to miss the smell of burning hair.
