This is Serious! This incident happened recently in North Texas .
A woman went boating one Sunday taking with her some cans of coke which she put into the refrigerator of the boat. On Monday she was taken to the hospital and placed in the Intensive Care Unit. She died on Wednesday.

The autopsy concluded she died of Leptospirosis. This was traced to the can of coke she drank from, not using a glass. Tests showed that the can was infected by dried rat urine and hence the disease Leptospirosis.

Rat urine contains toxic and deathly substances. It is highly recommended to thoroughly wash the upper part of all soda cans before drinking out of them. The cans are typically stocked in warehouses and transported straight to the shops without being cleaned.

A study at NYCU showed that the tops of all soda cans are more contaminated than public toilets (i.e.).. full of germs and bacteria. So wash them with water before putting them to the mouth to avoid any kind of fatal accident.

Another urban legend.
But still a good idea.

Kevin,, nice picture of Ron Brown,, Reminds me of the days my dad ran Tri-sac. Still wish I could have found Roger Bibles sidewinder, and really wish there was a way to bring the Tri-sac type of open body rules back to some series.

Roger Bible has his car done, I just haven't contacted him since last fall. He has the paperwork for the car to be loaned to the museum, just waiting on him.

That's gross. I rarely drink can pop. I go for the plastic bottle or fountain pop. I never liked pop from a can as I always thought it tasted flat.

except some of the things on mythbusters that they say are busted are really plausable. a lot of things that they have to use air pressure for that they bust would be plausable if they had more pressure for. if they used nitrogen for more things instead of air they would find that the myth is plausable. also when they did the myths that were supposed to improve your fuel economy, they tried a hydrogen generator and said that was busted. in reality it is so plausable. you cannot run a car engine solely on hydrogen because you can't create enough hydrogen to feed a car engine. but if you run it as a supplement to your gas you may notice a mpg increase of up to 35-40%.

One thing to keep in mind though, germs and bacteria are necessary to support human life. So, not all is bad. And without exposure, one does not develop the bodily defense against invasion. Not saying you should germ it up, and revel in bacteria, but, attempting to rid all from your life is unhealthy.

As kids, we didn't worry about it, and we survived. Why as adults, do we buy into it now?

Media sensationalism?

Probably.

Besides, we are walking bacteria/germ and hideous organism factories.

We have learned over time how to harness their power to help us better our lives in many ways.

And, where do you think organically grown food gets it's fertilizers.

have a good day,

Are you talking about those hydrogen generators that people put in their cars and plumb into the intake system?


If so, you are mistaken. You will see no increase from them except from the "placebo" effect.

Simple laws of physics prevents you from getting more energy out than you put in. In other words the fuel it would take to create the electricity need to separate the hydrogen would represent more than the energy that you would get from the burning of the hydrogen.

If it worked you would essentially have a perpetual motion machine and we would all have free energy.

the hydrogen generator takes very little energy to separate the hydrogen from the oxygen. also a catalyst such as draino, or if you have access to it, costic soda helps separate a lot faster. it does not take the place of anything, or make the fuel burn more efficiently as many people think. it does work though, it has been proven. the only problem you face when doing it on newer cars is the computer eventually readjusts and counteracts the effects of the hydrogen. it deffinately works on older cars though. also, i am one of those ones who do believe that a perpetual motion engine is possible. i also believe that the perpetual motion engine has been perfected on several occasions, however they have been prevented from making any progress tward energy efficiency because they have been "eliminated" by the federal government and the oil companies.

I know folks that believe this believe it with all their heart but the fact is it just is not true.

Simple facts and a question

By mass, the energy content of hydrogen is 143 megajoules
per kilogram. Gasoline is 46.9. So by this measure, hydrogen
has three times the energy content of gasoline.

Water is made up of two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule.

Your engine moves more than one hundred cubic inches of air per minute

You would then need at least one third of the amount of hydrogen to make the same energy as the gas.

You make the hydrogen from a mason jar of water.

How often do you fill the water?
