Use your job to get free heat this winter

Almost every occupation has it's waste products that produce heat. Since fuel prices this winter will be outrageous we must all look to our jobs for heating our homes. Here are some examples.
Restaurant worker - burn fryer oil and paper trash Electrician - burn old wire Carpenter - burn wood scraps Plumber - burn pvc pipe Office worker - burn office paper Farmer - lots of stuff to burn on the farm, cornstalks, downed trees Demolition - Burn parts of demolished buildings Mechanic - Burn drain oil and old tires Undertaker - burn dead bodies Store owner - burn cardboard boxes and other packaging Grocer - burn rotted food Newspaper worker - burn old newspaper Baker - burn defective bakery Lumberjack - burn wood scrap from trees Garbage Pickup - Burn everything that burns from the garbage Government employee - burn red tape and scandal papers Musician - burn broken drumsticks and instruments Postal worker - burn all the junk mail (Please!!!) Barber - burn hair Highway worker - burn asphalt Gas station worker - (you got the "real stuff" to burn)

A Bad Idea (tm). Wire is insulated with PVC plastic. Burning it will release chlorine gas. You will only be providing fuel for the undertaker.

Yeah, but you know what the undertaker burns?
Besides the smoke is supposed to go up the chimney, not in the house.

Bodies don't burn, they are burned. Usually using that expensive natural gas. I suppose creamations will get more expensive now. Better put off dying for another year or two.

On the contrary, better die now. Gas is not going to be getting cheaper.

PVC pipe will polute the air unless burned in a oven built for that purpose. The acids from the burning will corrode the flue.
The fresh wood the lumberjack has is more water than celulose, so it will not burn well. Same thing with rotted food. ant hair, etc. You must be a troll to post stupid stuff like that. Also, is the savings from the free fuel greater than the cost of an efficient wood burning or fuel burning stove?
you need to burn all your stupid posts. It would be best if you did that before you post them. :-)

A couple of my friends want your advice on this,.....
One works in a gravel quarry. The other is a fireman.

The fireman is lucky. He has ready to use heat right at his disposal. Just package the fire and bring it home.
The gravel guy has a problem. He could be one of those that are very cold this winter. The best he can do is cover his entire home with tons and tons of gravel to act an insulation. Maybe after applying his gravel insulation, he can marry a female fireman (I guess they call them firewomen), to add some heat to his well insulated home.

Dilbert had a series on this many years ago. A favorite line was: Pointy Hair: "I see you have been taking a lot of work home lately" Dilbert: "It gives me a warm feeling"
