More on the wheel


I've done three coats of the red waterproofing in the tray and given the moving parts a brush down. I was going to brush the metal with fish oil but when I read the instructions I was so frightened by the precautions that I changed my mind. Anything that has touched the oil when applying it can spontaneously burst into flame at any time. It must be drenched with water immediately and disposed of in a sealed water-filled container.

I dunno exploding fish oil could make for an interesting glaze?

I'm starting to worry about the fish. Could there be a risk they'd burst into flames when hauled from the water?

Yes most probably, my metaphor machine is going off the scale right now.

I can see them swimming in rivers of quicksilver.

Swimming in a mercurial fish bowl...

"Swimming in a mercurial fish bowl" - that's a metaphor for the online life?

Yes I feel it may be :-)
