Mason jar censorship.

My wife and I were given a couple dozen Mason jars, but we don't can. So I came up with a plan: We would make "swear jars," out of them

It was decided that we come with various forbidden words and affix a fine for them to fill the jars with money.

We had a very animated discussion about which words to ban and fine.

What words, or phrases would you ban? What sort of fine would you charge for it?

I had priced certain words, like the "c" word, at 25$. If someone came into my house and said that, he would deserve the fine.

I call it 'extreme vetting.'

2. +1. They'd get kicked in the ass with extreme prejudice.

 

Respect my family, respect me, respect my guests.

3. Respect women

It's like Black Lives Matter. It only needs to be said because in practice, they don't.

6. That would be an extreme case.

Most of our list was filled with annoying cliche and popular culture and phrases like, "Outside the envelope." Or, "on the same page," 25 cent fine.

4. 101 uses for mason jars.

They make great candle holders. Drop glass stone on the bottom and add a votive candle.

Just do a search for "uses for mason jars" and you'll come up with a lot of ideas. I won't post the links here, because all the websites I came across were full of adverts that slowed the process.

The one idea that I thought was cool was popping holes in the top to string wire through them to make string lighting.
