I am not sure of the diagnosis of this but it does sound a bit sad to admit it.

My name is Larry and I'm a coal addict.



I love this idea... I think I'll take it a step further and put several coats of clear lacquer on a nice chunk and display it as a center piece on the living room coffee table 8-)

They call me Lightning, and I'm also a coal addict :lol:

Now that is just wrong to tempt an addict like that. Putting a shiny coating on a lump of anthracite so it will glisten even more.

I'm not sure where all this will go or when I will stop but I'm sure I can stop anytime I want. :P

Right? :roll: :roll: :roll:

It is time to admit my addiction!!! I have always had a likeness to smoke. Not just from a chimney, but in the last two years, a beautiful lady!!! :verycool: Yes, I will admit I have a smoke fetish!!!! There is nothing that is a bigger turn on than a beautiful lady smoking!!!! Seeing a beautiful lady smoking causes strange feelings inside me!!!! Kind of makes me feeling confused!!!!

BTW I like 'em exotic in case you haven't noticed!!! ;)

PM me if you want to see a whole new world of smoking cuties!!!!

Oh yes, I am a coalaholic.

I do not look up photos of steaming hot cuties like the person who has posted above me, instead I find myself doing internet searches for coal, coal mining and burning coal. I think I have checked out every link on the link part of this site, read almost every post on the history of the anthracite coal area, and have even been to a few active and inactive coal mines. It takes a lot of time, but I figure it is better for my marriage, and my morals to look coal stuff up then improperly dressed ladies! :-)

As for this site; I think it was a brilliant move by the the start up organization that began this website; to create a coal burning forum to help increase and support the anthracite coal industry. Pure brilliance, and I am doing exactly what they envisioned; when people complain about the price of oil, the hassle of wood, or how wood pellets screwed over the American Dairy Farmer royally...I am the first to gloat about burning coal.

I even take it a step further...I very rarely use the word coal...I tell everyone I do not burn wood, pellets or oil, "I burn anthracite". Or I might ask my wife, "Do you want to burn wood tonight, or anthracite?" The wood coal is replaced by anthracite in this house!

Since I started this thread a year ago, I will fess up to STILL being hopelessly addicted to The NEPA Coal Forum. :D Maybe not during the non-burning season so much, but once late Oct/early Nov rolls around, "ja, fur sure, you betcha'!" My bride actually places a limit on my burning coal. If the outside daily high is between 32degF and 50degF, wood. Daily temps below freezing, coal. The coal furnace I have cranks out so much heat (and we have a very hi-ceiling 2500sqft ranch-style house) that the wife complains about the heat output if above freezing. We use wood for the "warmer" days. Once it's above 60degF the "backup" propane furnace takes the chill out of things.

COAL ROCKS!! :punk: :clap: :drool:

I fell off the wagon today and bought another 1000 pounds of coal. This coal is beautiful! Sized perfectly, shiny black with no fines. Of course its always a mystery of where it came from since the retailer is clueless hahaha. I had it loaded in my Jeep Cherokee in totes and tubs. Poor thing was just a squattin the whole way lol

I had my addiction under control until I bought a bucket a day water heater. It called to me in a language all it's own. It looks like a half sized R2D2. I exercised restraint and didn't rush right home and start hooking it up. Instead I drew diagrams with alternate piping routes until I finally settled on one. I sat on a bucket and envisioned what it would look like in different settings. I was like an alky sitting in a bar but not ordering anything. Then you order a whiskey neat and just let it sit on the bar in front of you. Then you pick it up and watch the whiskey coat the sides of the glass as you swirl it. You sniff it while swirling it and finally you toss it back and your done for again.

That is what happened with the bucket a day coal fired water heater. I told myself that I exercised self control but I just deluded myself by turning it into a game that I knew I would lose. I spent 1/2 a day wrangling everything into place. Another half day measuring and cutting copper and piecing it together. Then I started soldering the fittings. Saturday I finished all but the tie in's to the hot and cold copper lines to the house.

This morning (Monday)I sweated them in and pressure tested the system by opening the cold water supply line. This project set a new personal best. Soldered 33 fittings using recycled copper pipe without a leak.

I collected small branches from the yard. I put three sheets of crumpled newspaper in the pot, snapped the branches and put them on top of the paper and lit it off. Once I had a nice fire going in R2 I started putting pea coal in using a garden trowel filling it to the top of the bricks. That was at 1 PM. At 9 PM I took a bath with water hot enough to take your skin off.... heated by anthracite coal, that was mined 10 minutes from my house, and sold to me by my neighbor, who lives two houses down the street. I have indescribable satisfaction knowing that I will no longer be sending a single penny to the middle east sheikdoms and instead I will be supporting my local economy.

My house is now 100% on nasty, smelly, dirty, air quality destroying, green house gas generating NE Pennsylvania anthracite coal and I can sleep like a baby knowing that I am responsible for doing that.

Hi everybody,,,,, my name is Larry and I am a black rock addict.

It's OK though... I can stop any time I want.

Their are millions of social sites used everyday by millions, this one happens to be informative as well. I choose not to have FB invading my home (I trust Richard alot more then I trust some billionaire kid whos out for profits only). I enjoy reading threads, viewing stove setups & houses, laughing at the jokes, etc. and its amazing how much more fun the site is after getting to know some of the great people here ;)

@ Duengeon master... maybe Rich will make us a new section called "The Divorced Mid Life Crisis Room" :lol: JK JK... Id probably be the first in the door :lol:

*hiding eyes* I've gotten worse since I started this thread almost 18 months ago!! All I want to do is stockpile coal! My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she hasn't complained much this winter that's been colder than a well diggers a** in the Klondike, what for the delicious warmth generated by our coal furnace!! :D :D
