    holy ****. I think the title should be anyone who welds or knows anyone that welds. This is some crazy stuff.

    Just think this stuff used to be used in past wars.

    hmm, my brother uses it all the time, and i when i get a can of it, though mine is non-chlorinated.

    reminds me of when i drilled a hole in the bottom of a empty can of airbrush propellant and got this purple liquid on my arm and burnt like crazy for a few days and left me with a rash.

    Thanks for the link, I had no idea about the brake cleaner. (I always use starting fluid, haven't found anything that works as well.)

    Certain kinds of refrigerant will do the same thing, like R-12. And they used to use a torch as a leak tester on older systems. If the flame changed color it was hitting refrigerant, so you knew your leak was there. Of course, you were also generating poison gas right in front of your face, but at least you located that pesky freon leak.
    “Do not trust people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”
