Yes, even here, we may be labelled as moaning old Gits and held in some databank and sold on - but to who ???

And I am sure that if these footballers are awarded compensation, that they will immediately pass their awards to charity.


Doubt it

Thread: M6 thread locking/stiff screw

I do recall [from at least 30 years ago] reading about a similar-looking system which used micro-encapsulated anaerobic adhesive … released like the ‘scratch & sniff’ perfume samplers.

But I haven’t ever seen it on the general market


I worked for a UK company that specialised in all forms of thread locking, sealing etc the micro-encapsulated anaerobic adhesive we applied was supplied by 3M's basically the hardener was suspended in the adhesive and when the fastener was screwed in to a thread the capsule was broken allowing the hardener and adhesive to mix most of the production was cylinder head bolts, in the case of the fasteners which a torx drive we had to make sure the adhesive was applied to the correct end assembly robots were not colour blind they were 'thick' not being able to tell one end from the other wink

Thread: Not enoughh CO2 ?
21/09/2021 14:34:36

Apparently, the carbon left over from the natural gas used to make ammonia (fertiliser) gives carbon dioxide used in the food industry. High gas price = shut down fertiliser plant = no CO2 = food shortage.

We have been told for years, that there is too much CO2 in the atmosphere, so why don't we extract it? The answer is probably that the actual amount is so miniscule at about 450 parts per million, that it's not an economic proposition.

I will now retire to my nuclear shelter.

Cant afford nuclear shelter so a dark corner will have to do wink
