    ... asking for a friend...

  • I haven't seen "Right Guard" spray deodorant in a while.
    Excellent choice for making impromptu flame throwers and/or spud gun launcher propellant.

    Until the Right Guard supply drought situation eases up, I guess continue using MAPP gas as a suitable replacement.

    The propellant in those cans is propane i believe. Just buy propane and forgo the sticky residue....

    ahem. tap-tap Is this thing on?

    I just want to say...

    This thread is almost neck and neck with the storied black paint thread in the annals of Polk lore!

    IMO of course.
    YMMV.

    Maybe some of us are looking for the sticky residue effect.

    Splitting lanes with no skid lid. Double stupid Texas thing.

    Idiot I used to do some work for lived to slowly split lanes at red lights. Not to get to the front but to look into cars. If the driver had his/her phone in-hand, he'd shatter their side window and scream at them about texting and driving (at a stop light). Then ride off going through Facebook and making posts on his own phone. He feels broken windows and dented roofs were doing society a favor.

    Yeah....if he did that to me, I'd also do society a favor. Him and that bike would be at the bottom of the nearest pond.

    Concrete to Italians is like duct tape to Americans....lots of uses. You can use concrete to beautify things, or solve problems.

    So... in other words, when you say to someone. You and me, we need to take a walk", it would be advisable to be in a very public space. :p:s

    It would be advisable.....to run in the other direction. :)
