Anyone tried Methane in their combustions, depending on where you obtain it, it can be free. Minus the cost of the baked beans...

3" metal camlock set off of ebay for $15, plus $12 shipping. Still a deal, as ordering them off Mcmaster would have been at least $50.

WTF? No gieco joke (pretty obvious how it would go)...

Let's see TMI but, met a hot girl on the bus stop, I was a gentleman, she goes... :shock: ...took her home...she left, roomate came home, invited me to casino for slots (I hate slots but just guessed it was my lucky day) :roll: won $680 second pull (with like $1) I cashed out, ate dinner there.
Next morning I found a diamond earring on the other bus stop! :D :D :D

Spud luck, I showed a simple sprinkler valve cannon to a friend and he was impressed and had lots of pipes laying around. So he told me take my pick of whatever, whenever I can get back there too! 8)

Of course, but not quite successfully, might actually have made the hole in the ozone layer slightly bigger actually :D
