Yes, it is true for many ateliers. Sometimes people make a big deal about it but I don't see the point. As you say, it doesn't seem to have any affect on the price of a Koons, Faberge, Hirst,...

When I was kid, I was so sure I'd live off the land, I must have read the Foxfire books front to back three times and once back to front for good measure. Never expected to become a city dweller. :)

FWIW, I didn't think the military valor comparison was very apt but I did think it could help people who understand those kinds of grievances begin to understand some important parts of the other.

But that's not what happened. I don't see what ashes have to do with it.

The other day I saw a bunch of birds who must have been so wasted. They just ket launching themselves at a bunch of pigs in their houses, minding their own little piggy business. Weird.

Do you think he was harassing the octopus or the kayaker?

Sorry, Thwacky, we've been doing it wrong this whole time. You're supposed to use an octopus, not a fish.
