    I had a stuck fastener the other day and someone told me to heat it, considering I'd just emptied a gallon of petrol and nearly two cans of carb cleaner in my wooden shed/workshop, I thought better of it.

    As much as I like things that go bang, my neighbours are already a little skittish. Even when the lady next door sees me in the white coveralls and full face respirator, she craps herself. Good thing she wasn't home when I set off the emergency flare (big fat expired one from a local commercial fisherman). Fuck me are those thing loud when you start them... then the thing made an obscene amount of red smoke for about 5 minutes... and yes they will keep burning while under water.

    I haven't drummed up the courage to fire off another one, so you could PM me your mailing address if you're feeling brave. Might upset the postal folk and the local constabulary may take a dim view of you interrupting the game and starting a stampede.... second thought... would anyone at the game notice?

    I'll just lob it at the away fans. I'd get arrested if it was posted to me, or arrested when searched at the game so, I'll leave it for now

    MEK is one of the most dangerous chemicals, and no one should be using it !

    recommending any chemical that dangerous seems irresponsible. no matter what it accomplishes, the risk of cancer isn't worth it.

    That seems quite a leap, do you have any evidence that it's carcinogenic?
