Well if driving naked with a truck full of naked passengers is wrong, I don't want to be right.

No. Jet A is a high-grade kerosene. It works great as diesel fuel.

Some jet engines will actually run on diesel. Supposedly not as well, but they'll run.

Early East-bloc jet aircraft could supposedly run on just about anything flammable, kerosene, diesel and a bunch of other ones derived from long dead bio matter.

The only reason anyone owns gas powered farm equipment (other then atvs and small engine stuff) is so they can buy off highway gas to fill their cars without arousing suspicion

Oddly enough, a lot of jet fuel is based on kerosene, the first petroleum-derivative, dating well before gasolene and the Pennsylvania Oil Rush.

It was invented by Dr. Abraham Gesner, a Nova Scotia-born physician and geologist, in the coal fields (admittedly very tiny coalfields) of New Brunswick, Canada, in 1846. It can be refinied from coal, bitumen and shale "oil".

Gesner also founded the New Brunswick Museum. He was personally inspired by Sir Charles Lyell, the greatest geologist of the time, whom he met in London, England.

Yes, good old kerosene, associated with glass lamps and Coleman stoves, began the Petroleum Era and may live to see it end.

Another Great Canadians in History Moment.

This has been a Canadian History Vignette by Brantgoose.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Pineo_Gesner

Pineo? Oh, those Victorians and their silly names! Still, no Aidens, though.

The Abraham Gesner Lounge in the Geology Building at Mount Allison University was named in honour of Dr. Abraham Gesner. It is (or perhaps was) the anti-chamber of the men's washroom in the basement of the building. I've been. There. I've been there and been there. More than once, in fact.

Another anecdote a propos de rien:

In 1977, the United States Department of Agriculture dedicated its Washington cafeteria (The Alfred Packer Memorial Dining Facility) to the famous nineteenth-century Colorado pioneer Alfred Packer. "Alfred Packer," Agriculture Secretary Robert Bergland declared, "exemplifies the spirit and fare that this agriculture department cafeteria will provide."

Several months later, the General Services Administration promptly removed the dedicatory plaque, renamed the cafeteria, and accused the Department of Agriculture of "bad taste." Packer, it was discovered, had been hung in 1874 - after murdering and eating the five prospectors who had hired him to guide them along the Mormon Trail into Colorado.

[The cafeteria at the University of Colorado at Boulder is allegedly still known as the Alfred G. Packer Grill.]

I could have slipped this into a Romney thread, but I just thought of it for some reason.

But I digress. Back to our sheeple, to paraphrase Rabelais.

Aircraft Fuel is a pretty badass combination of kerosene with enough work for diesel. You can use it as kerosene, or you can use it as diesel. Typically if it's not used in an aircraft, it's used around here as diesel, for aircraft support equipment.

The nekkid guy, Nicholaus Borgman, owns five acres of land. That's more like a largish building lot than a farm, so why did he need so much fuel, even assuming most of it was for, as well as with, his father? Mysterious mysteries of mystery should investigate this guy.

640 acres equals one square mile.
120 acres equals one quarter (sq. mi.).
40, 60, 80, 100 acres equals fields of usual sizes, hence expressions such as "the back forty" or "the North forty" (the back forty acre field on a farm, a forty acre field on the North side of a farm).

The average farm in much of North America is a bit more than 700 acres, except in the Prairies and other places where large scale family or corporate farms are common.

My father owned a five acre lot (among others) so I have a clear picture in my mind of how big five acres is, and it isn't very big unless you are painting the damn fence with cheap paint. Stupid work. Makes you realize just how farking rich those people with miles of painted wooden fence around their horse pastures in places like Connecticut really are. That's a lot of wood and paint. But I digress, again.

Diesel kerosene fuel oil and jet fuel are very close cousins and can be interchanged in a lot of cases. Jet fuel just sounds bad ass.

Sort of. You're supposed to drastically inflate the value of the 9 gallons of jet fuel as well.

This is just one of those "crazy" thoughts.

Since he was selling the fuel and fudging the records, perhaps cash customers weren't being recorded for the full amount and he was pocketing proceeds.

the only difference between Jet-A and kerosene is two extra stages of filters and chain of custody reporting. (in case your jet turns into a super sized lawn dart so they can trace your fuel supply back to find contamination and prevent further 'jart' action, etc)

Kerosene and Diesel are close cousins, and as far as I am aware, fully interchangeable in Diesel engines.

yeah, Jet-A is overkill, but if it makes your Deere run for free (due to five finger discount) then its good enough!
