i Love the Smell of Aeromatic Hyocarbons in the Air.

Recommended Posts

Yes .... I just lit my grill with charcoal lighter fluid.  Also started a burn pile on the farm with a used tire and some diesel fluid.  Now I'm fixing to start a brush pile on fire in back of the house.  No wind so the used motor oil is going to help things going... Wanted to wait for earth day but the conditions are right this day..  The tree Huggers will be crapping their pants as I also have several  Black Walnut trees ready for harvest also.   Dave..

For the it didn't happen without photos.  Fire.  Gasoline diluted motor oil works just fine..

About mid-Ohio,  right next to the turnpike,  is an asphalt plant.

I love that smell.

(I wouldn't want to live within 20 miles of the place, on lazy-wind days,  but I love that smell.)

i do admit Naptha and Diesel Fuel and that Sweet Kerosene Smell make me Happy.

Yes and even though I do not smoke, the Naptha smell,  I carry a Zippo when I am out and about and on the farm.  Never know when some brush may need lighting up.

That's as normal as putting a Case pocket knife in yer pocket as you put your pants on.

I love the smell of burnt JP4. Well, as long as it’s not mixed with burning flesh and hair.

Oh Hell NO. I was the Fuels Officer at Sheppard AFB in Texas for a while. We passed gas to 200+ sorties of T-37's, T-38's and HH-43's 5 days a week for three years.

 

 

I've had quite enough of that stuff. Actually volunteered to go to SEA to get away from it.

A quick picture of a few of mine.  It's late so not the best photo.

From left to right. 1: A "Art Deco" form the way back. 2: Rounded top and bottom from the past. 3: This one is usually in my pocket. Had since was a boy.  Well worn like me.  4: This one I carry sometimes, dates back when I was a young man  5: My Mom's Art Deco I found in a drawer a few years ago.

I do not care for the picture or slogan crap ones.  Steel and Flint only is correct.  Dave..

Edit: Had to switch #3 and #4. description.  It's late and I made a mistake but corrected now.

I spent an hour or so yesterday oiling this table up before I realized I'd better open a window and get the fan.
