Hi Bob,<P>It's been a long time, I know, but Ebola's a bitch.<P>I was just getting set to roast some marshmallows in the local fire pit, and it occured to me that I'm not entirely up to snuff on all my fire safety tips. Is it safer to bat sparks out of the air before they reach my clothing, or let them settle and quickly douse them with a pinch of snow?<P>Thanks,<P><P>------------------

The only truly safe way to deal with this situation is to <I>urniate</I> on the sparks. In midair if possible.
