Hobbies- everybody has one. The Book Elves have had dozens, and their
latest was glass-blowing. I'd seen the cute set-ups they have at places
like the Science Museum- a little bunsen-burner-type thing and some glass
rods and your kids can make beads and stuff. No problem, I thought. Much
better than their previous hobby, carving animals out of stumps with chain
saws, I thought. And then they began to talk about blast furnaces and
annealing ovens. And then they began to price blast furnaces, and then
(priced out of that market) they began looking around for cheaper
alternatives. Now, here's a funny, quirky thing about the American legal
system: buying a blast furnace, new or used = legal. Purchasing a surplus
jet engine off an ex-Soviet Mig-23 fighter jet (NATO code-name "Flogger")
from a guy named "Sergei" who you met in an internet chat room on the
Soldier of Fortune website = NOT legal.

But before the Book Elves got yet another update to their red-tabbed
dossier in a filing cabinet at the Department of Homeland Security, they
finished our latest catalog-
