Is being Pyrokinetic a sin?

Assuming for a moment that pyrokinesis is not an imaginary phenomenon, which it is as far as I am aware, pyrokinesis would not be a sin under Judaism, Christianity, or Islam under general conditions, primarily because these religions tend to address real-life situations and not unlikely scenarios. (This is the same reason why none of these traditions have a description of how to make contact with aliens or how to perform time-travel.) Of course, pyrokinesis could be argued to be a form of sorcery or magic, which all three of these religions label a sin, but there is no religious ruling directly on point.

The only relevant case directly on point is within Judaism. It would be a sin to perform acts of pyrokinesis on Shabbat in Judaism since manipulation of fire (regardless of method) falls under the forbidden labor of Ignition - Meva'ir (מבעיר) and extinguishing a fire (regardless of method) falls under the forbidden labor of Extinguishing - Makhava (מכבה). On any other day, these prohibitions would not apply.

Within Zoroastrianism, pyrokinesis is likely to be some form of a sin, given the elevated level of holiness bestowed on fire in that religion.

How do you get dirt stains off the bottom of a vinyl pool liner when a brush will not work?

Vinyl liners have a tendency to stain. If a brush won't work, you can try using a large chlorine tablet to "brush" the stained area. Please use caution - bleach tablets can burn skin and eyes - wear goggles and gloves! More input from FAQ Farmers: * Ascorbic acid will remove stain from a vinyl lines. First try a vitamin C tablet on the stain and see if it works. It should work almost immediately. Using ascorbic acid followed by MetalOut in a 0% chlorine pool will work. * I tried the ascorbic acid suggestion and it worked great. But rubbing the lining with a sock full of vitamin C tablets was time consuming. Can I add granular ascorbic acid to the pool water and have it do the same thing? If so, will that damage the pool liner? If not, what ratio should I use? * You can purchase granular ascorbic acid for just this purpose at any good pool supply store - I get mine at Leslie's. Follow the directions on the bottle (including the use of a chellating agent). This will not damage your liner. * These are more than likely not dirt stains, but metal stains. Swimming pools can get all kinds of metal satins, but the most popular ones are copper, iron and organic. And yes, the ascorbic acid will work great to remove the stains. To prevent the staining, you need to use a sequestering agent to keep the metals 'tied up' in the water so they cannot attach themselves to the liner.
