    ah, the traditional Czech Christmas Carp And binunrg the tree in a wood stove is a good idea at least a new tree didn’t have to get chopped. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. @todd: it may not be a significant percentage of trees that wind up binunrg down a house, but the inventor’s logic was if I only save one child’s life, this invention will have been worth it. The only guaranteed way to save a life from fire is to prevent the fire in the first place. Don’t put kindling inside your house. And if you insist on putting kindling in your living room, draped in flammable items, and decorated with flammable presents underneath, maybe keep flames or other sources of ignition well away from it. Just seems a little more intelligent than placing a pressurized water canister beneath the tree, connected to a heat sensitive plug on top of the tree, hoping it all works properly in case of fire. And also hoping that it doesn’t decide that the christmas lights are too hot and dousing the living room (and all of the presents) just for something to do Seems silly, is all @Chris: it’s christmas in July! It’s only supposed to hit 27?C here today (thankfully) but it’s a DRY heat. badump bum.

      I can’t stand RBNY but the new GM, Jerome de Bontin, has had success in the US as a buannessmsi, was educated here, sat (or still sits) on the broad of directors for USSF, and has been heavily involved at AS Monaco. He’s not oblivious to the weird workings of MLS and US Soccer. In fact, he’s pretty in-tuned and I think, as much as I don’t like it, a pretty savvy hire by RBNY. He’s no dummy or just a Euro guy.
