I intend to register so that the flames that this post will generate can actually find me. I love punishment. I live in San Francisco, California --- not a place known for cold weather. I reside in a small apartment located on the lower floor of a house that I moved in to as a boy in 1957. I am an admitted pyromaniac though I pursue my mania entirely legally. I have a coal fire in my fireplace every day, regardless of the weather --- winter, spring, summer and fall. I have been doing this since at least 1960. I am now retired. In the past year I have burned around ten tons of coal. My walls are not yellow though I sometimes get dust around the hearth. My neighbors might hate me, that's up to them. Coal burning is legal. Sometimes, when starting a fire, there has been so much black smoke coming from my chimney that neighbors have called the fire department. SFFD has responded, inspected the fire, declared everything “on the up and up” and split (several times). There are multiple fireplaces in my house and on occasion I get them all going burning coal. I like the smell of coal. It reminds me of a steam locomotive. I burn up to 100 pounds in a 24 hour period --- but that is with someone awake and tending the fire continuously. If there will be no one in my house awake, I let the fire go out (though it's never "out" because when I get up in the morning, I just throw some coal on the red residue and it relights) and a might only burn around 50 to 60 pounds. On second thought, maybe I won’t register. I don’t want to spend all day becoming emotionally involved defending myself from all of the flames I am going to get. Besides, I have a real fire to tend to . . .
