    Hey! I love this idea. Fill it with water and start a fire. It would be better indoors where it would warm your house and heat a tub of water for your bath at the same time. The water is great for retaining the heat and distributing it, while humidifying the house. You can put a girl in the tub as well.

    What would be interesting is to build a car using the dutch tub that runs on batteries, then once you've reached an interesting destination, fill it with water, light a fire and have a soak.

    We just had a fire alarm and some type of small fire in the building. Fire department, three trucks and excitement. I hope they weren't trying the wood-fired hot tub and set of the sprinklers!

    Apparently they left the stove on and forgot about a pot on the burner.

    Heh, your humor is showing Wise. If you can put a girl in it, who needs the fire to heat it up?

    It depends on the girl, doesn't it? If she's hot, why waste it? Wise.
