Helvete said:Slightly off topic but I have a fondue story.
On New Year's Eve 1999, awaiting the new millennium we had some friends over for dinner and had some fondue set up. One of the fondue pots had the cooking oil in it for cooking the chunks of meat...well it caught fire at some point just before we all sat down to eat. My dad in his infinite wisdom rushes over and grabs a glass of water and throws it in the pot. The result was pretty impressive as it created a pillar of fire that shot up to the ceiling and knocked a lot of the flaming oil over onto the table. not even a second later one of the cats we had climbed all the way up my dad's body like it was scaling a tree, did a backflip off of him and ran like a bat out of hell down the stairs to the basement. In the meantime my mother had already grabbed a pot lid and smothered out the flames. That table still has burn marks on it and it happens to be the prep table in my office area where I pack up all my pepper seeds.
If this wasn't so long...it'd be my new signature.
