You're a cool guy and all, but there is something very wrong with your head.

Yep, it's flammable. So is polyurethane, lacquer, certain types of glue, and I think Shellac. Really, anything with either oil or alcohol in it. (And of course, I have ALL of these things lying around ) I just make sure I'm careful with what I do with the rags.

Well, I knew it was flammable. But I'm talking completely spontaneous combustion. No external heat or spark applied at all. Or was just sitting there... And then it was burning.

personally i have never seen it, but have heard of it happening. at work our oily and dirty shop rags go into a container with a popup lid to counter spontaneous combustion. exactly how i don't know, but they will build heat to a point where they can do this. i don't know exactly how it happens, but do know it can happen.

Maybe he was calm because it was not at home. We tend to want to feel safe at home.

The dog wanted to go to the park.

And of course, we laugh because it makes no sense at all and she thinks we're all laughing because it's funny. It's a win/win situation.

Okay, here's a new "granddaughter saying" from yesterday. My daughter and granddaughter were sitting in their apartment and the wind was blowing fiercely last night. Here's the conversation between my daughter and granddaughter.

Granddaughter: What's that noise?

Daughter: That's the wind blowing on the windows.

Granddaughter: Why does it sound like two cats fighting over a bag pipe?

How do kids THINK of those things?

Yeah... And shop rags that have had paint thinner on them and hot slag are not a good combination.

The label on the can of linseed oil should look something like THIS:

linseed-oil.jpg

All of that red print? It is about spontaneous combustion hazards. Oxygen reacts with the oil, generating heat. If the rags are balled up, heat is held in, gets greater and greater, until reaching ignition temps.

Translation: WHOOOOOFFF!

This reminds me of that one time I got floor cleaner on my face, I didn't actually look at the label until it started to burn... It had some stuff called sodium metasilicate in it, it also said something along the lines of "may cause skin irritation" what they mean by that is "WILL cause CHEMICAL BURN." Yeah, I'm usually pretty smart but some days...

There was probably some other chemical in there to help out. Plenty of strange combinations out there. Sometimes "Better living through chemistry" isn't so much better ...
