breaking bad

Sweat Lodge

I went to Sutton Park today and saw the site of a 3,000-year-old sweatlodge. The old-uns used to pile up stones, and burn a fire on them until they were red hot, then pour on water until they shattered. So there are all these broken stones, crackled all over, and the crackles black with soot.
