My favorite, though, is on those Presto-Logs you use in the
fireplace instead of (or along with) real wood. It says
something like: Do not put more than one prestolog on the
fire at a time. I STILL want to know why. What will happen
if I do? Will it blow up? Will the house explode? I don't
see any reason not to give some kind of brief

Several centuries ago, when I was young and stupid, my new husband and I had a wood stove. One night, it was extremely cold, so we put two prestologs in the stove instead of one. The resulting fire was so hot that the wall behind the exhaust pipe nearly caught fire!

No add to our naivete, the next day we went to the local hardware store and bought a sheet of asbestos to place behind the stove. The wall behind the stove never overheated again, but I may die someday from asbestosis...
