California & Western Coastal Wild Fires

It just seems completely crazy to me that all these very expensive homes in California are at risk every few months due to wild fires.
A) Build a fire wall around your property by cutting down superfluous brush & trees that face your wild areas and create some nice japanese sand gardens or children’s play areas there.
B) Have a repository of stored water in large inflatable balloons that you can fill when a fire is approaching your property that you can then use as needed to put out small hot spots when they strike, until the fire front passes by ( essentially the point when all the surrounding area is reduced to ashes. ( It might also be prudent to get some nice organic fire retardant chemicals to mix with the water... )
C) Fireproof your Roof.
D) Make Available Fire Proof Tents that can be easily thrown over your house...??? / Or maybe if you're building a house in a fire prone area, incorporate fire shields under the awnings so that they can simply be dropped when fire approaches and then drawn back up when it passes.
E) Or set up these fire walls that can be raised from the parameters of your property along telescoping support poles to a height of about 30 feet or so. This would at least make fire jumps that come over, more manageable.
F) When standing around on your own property, with your very large reserved water & foam retardant equipment, you should also have a fire resistant suit, like the professional fire fighters have, but a much cheaper version, that more closely resembles a largess poncho with separately attaching bubble helmet, arm sleeves & mittens.

Hidden Gematria Pictures

As you may or may not know;
It is possible using a technique called The Gematria to find all sorts of interesting & curious ‘Secret Messages’ in just about any text you select.

So the idea occurred to me the other day that it should be possible to do the same with pictures.
The initial idea i had was to take a magazine and carefully tear out all the pages,
And then rearrange them to make a much larger image so that each page would become a smaller subset of it...

The actual method of doing this might be to scan all the pages and print them at a substantially reduced size so that The New; Larger Image would be no more than say 3 feet square or so.
Once you've arranged all the images into some deeply offensive, illegal or heretical picture,
You would then post it to the internet and imply that The Editor & Magazine’s Art Department subliminally designed the whole magazine to conceal this Secret Image...!!!

Hilarity ensues.

Experiment: Accessing to a .pdf ( Sort of...??? )

Title ( See Above ) Should Link to This Document...???
- - - -
i just checked this out using the library's computer,
and it looks wrong...!!!
Just a little though...
i will work on it some more,
And by the 3rd or 4th try,
i should be reasonably satisfied with it.

While i was very hostile towards MP3 players for the longest time,
i finally went out a bought a very cheap one, ( $9 )
