The Smell of Burnt Hair

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 12/12/16
  • QIC: Jumanji
  • The PAX: Heisenberg, Farah&Farah (double respect), Balut, Burmese Python

YHC doesn’t really understand why they are called hair-burners, but perhaps the Jax Pax didn’t reach the velocity required to create that burnt hair smell. YHC had always wanted to try them and today was the day. Also added some of the lessons from GrowRuck 01 and Grow School to the Q.
