33) Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
I used to pack it camping to protect my prosthetic foot from rusting out. I was the only kid who had to turn WD40 over to the nurse when they collected our medical bags.

But with newer limbs prosthetists don’t like you using WD40 as it can mess up some expensive components. ( NEVER use it on a Cleg) instead buying one of those canisters of compressed air for cleaning key boards does wonders getting dust and dirt out of tricky spots.

I still use WD40 or 3 in1 oil on my swim leg foot. Even though it’s supposed to be water proof it gets rusty.

Mandy asks…

how about this interesting fact i must thank alan for this ok not my normal stuff but hey jokers we all learn?

Interesting!
A refresher course–who knew?

I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got up very early
one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red
all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).
I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very upset
and was trying to figure out what to do. Another neighbor came out and
told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint
beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck.
I’m mpressed!
WD-40 who knew?

Water Displacement #40.

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile
parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego
Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a
water displacement’ compound.
They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it
in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40
that would hurt you… IT IS MADE FROM FISH OIL
When you read the ‘shower door’ part, try it.
It’s the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If
yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It is a miracle!
Then try it on your stovetop… It is now shinier than it has ever been before.

Carol asks…

Diary of a New Bride?

Monday: Now home from honeymoon and settled in our new home. It’s fun to cook for Tim. Today I made an angel food cake and the recipe said, “Beat 12 eggs separately “. Well, I didn’t have enough bowls to do that, so I had to borrow 12 bowls to beat the eggs in. The cake turned out fine though.

Tuesday: We wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said, “Serve without dressing”. So I didn’t dress. But Tim happened to bring a friend home for supper that night. They both looked so startled when I served them. I think it was the salad.

Wednesday: I decided to serve rice and found a recipe, which said, “Wash thoroughly before steaming the rice”. So I heated some water and took a bath before steaming the rice. Sounded kind of silly in the middle of the day. I can’t say it improved the rice anyhow.

Thursday: Today Tim asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said, prepare ingredients, and then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving.” I hunted all over the place for a garden and when I got one, I tossed my salad into the bed of lettuce and stood over there for over one hour so the dog would not take it. Tim came over and asked if I felt all right. I wonder why? He must be stressed at work; I’ll try and be supportive.

Friday: Today I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said, “Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat it”. Beat it I did, to my mum’s place. There must have been something wrong with the recipe, because when I came back home again; it looked the same as when I left it.

Saturday: Tim went shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday. I’m sure I don’t know how hens dress for Sunday. I never noticed back on the farm, but I found an old doll dress and its little cute shoes. I thought the hen looked really cute. When Tim saw it, he started counting to ten. Either he was really stressed because of his work, or he wanted the chicken to dance. When I asked him what was wrong he started crying and shouting out “Why me? Why me?”

It has to be his job.
