Careful.  ;-))  A kerosene heater will still blow up
if you fill it with gasoline (application inconsistent
with intended product use, and the regulator is made
by a company that probably doesn't keep fish.)  ;-)))

I kind of agree with this, except that lightbulbs are 
designed to burn out.  They don't have to be, but
that makes them cheaper.  A product may cover
80% of the use cases or 99% of the use cases,
and really it's based on the vendor and the buyer's
product expectations.

I'll accept that.  I don't get paid what I'm worth either,
though.  ;-)))))))

These are great.  I think we should collect these for the APD
too.  I seem to recall an APD poster a few years back that 
kept offering advice to newbies about how activated carbon
produces carbonic acid in the tank.

The funniest thing I've ever read was a history of the world
as re-assembled from COLLEGE level students, which
included, "Magellan circumcised the world with a 100-foot
clipper" and "The sun never sets on the British Empire
because the British Empire is in the East, and the sun
sets in the West."

I'd love to get my hands on that thing again.
