But It’s A Dry Heat
The annual Burning Man festival has been a thing since 1991 so you’d think folks wouldn’t take the name too literally.

This notice posted by the management of a Hong Kong building bars the burning of incense and joss sticks (a form of stick incense burned to memorialize the departed). They’ve got a point: incense sticks left to smolder slowly can be a fire hazard, leading to fires and fatal injuries, and then to more smoldering incense sticks left by bereaved relatives of the fire victims. A sort of circular firing squad, one might say. (image via David Woo)
Beds R Burning
