Avatar Tue. 12/5/17 5:06pm hilmar:

ßrian: theres around 1% of the flats in leipzig which only have those old "berlin" ovens, which can only be heated with coal...but 10 years ago there were a lot more...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:07pm David D:

Only 1%? Smells like more - and I even kind of like the smell.
     Tue. 12/5/17 5:08pm kuba:

agree on the smell. like winter in poland
     Tue. 12/5/17 5:08pm kuba:

(speaking of diacritics...)
Avatar Tue. 12/5/17 5:09pm hilmar:

the smell was overwhelming in 1995, when i moved here...its a smell of winter and sad poetry by authors like adolf endler...or something...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:09pm David D:

Yeah, kind of nostalgic, but then again I had one of those ovens for a couple of years myself.
Avatar Tue. 12/5/17 5:11pm hilmar:

i am not using it for romantic reasons...actually i think heating with coal aint such a good thing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:12pm David D:

I didn't think you were - I sure wasn't when I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/5/17 5:13pm redkayak:

Speaking of coal country - this sounds like we're in Appalachia :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:13pm northguineahills:

It's weird, it gets down to 13C here in Gainesville, FL, and I start to smell wood burning (I live in what passes for a an older neighborhood (Victorian-WWII), so there is a lot of wood burning fireplaces. I'm only used to smelling it when it's way below freezing in the winter when I used to visit relatives in West Virginia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:15pm David D:

13C sounds nice right about now!
Avatar Tue. 12/5/17 5:15pm hilmar:

when i was posting, that i didnt like to go down to fetch some coal..i was thinking of a certain basement used by the ramones... the basement song in 20 century pop...haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:19pm northguineahills:

That's been low around here, but it usually gets up around 27C (although the morning after Halloween it got down to 4C, which is really cold around here, especially that early.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:20pm northguineahills:

I was born in coal country, a beautiful depressing area.

This Chris Forsyth doesn't sound like the psychadelic guitar fuzz I'm used to hearing from him.
Mmmm...unless I've got this all wrong
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/5/17 5:22pm redkayak:

Actually there used to be a good deal of strip mining for coal just south of Chicago. Used to go fossil hunting there when I was a kid....

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:25pm David D:

redkayak: A lot of new lakes have been created here in the Leipzig area from defunct strip mining locations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/5/17 5:27pm redkayak:

@David - Interesting. The scars from those years will be long in healing. Good for fossils though :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/5/17 5:28pm David D:

They have ironically added much to the quality of life here - after destroying so much in the past, including several villages that were entirely razed for coal mining.

Lud Gluskin reminds me. I am trying to think of the band leader on a track on Moby Grape's album Wow. Was it Lou Waxman? This could be memory lapse but I thought you had to speed up the record to 78.
